Actually I found a solution. I remove the lock relay form the fuse panel and placed it back in place. I did not replace it. After doing this they worked. I probably need to replace the relay at some point, but for now that solved the problem. It was hard for me to believe that there is a separate relay for the lock and unlock circuit.

Unfortunately, This is a very common problem with Ford Explorers! Ford replaces the locks when it encounters this issue. I managed to unseize my passanger door and tailgate lock, but the drivers door lock is broken beyond repair. You can purchase new remotes for your explorer and program them very easily. Just google ford key fobs...

Disconnect as many of the door switch wiring plugs, and wiring plugs for the seats that you can. Then, drop in a fuse. If it blows, you probably have a wiring issue, not a switch issue. If it doesn't blow immediately, reconnect the doors, and seats one at a time till the fuse does blow. Once it does, you've isolated your problem to a smaller area, and can replace / rewire that component.
If you've disconnected everything, and the fuse still blows, you probably have a wiring issue that will need to be traced. You will need a multimeter that can read ohms. You'll need to isolate different parts of the circuit (probably by unplugging and or cutting a wire in that circuit unfortunately) then use the multimeter to test the ohms from that part of the circuit to NON voltage side of the fuse holder. (If you try to test ohms on a hot circuit you will likely fry your multimeter!). If the meter reads low ohms, there is your short. High ohms (infinity) means there is no circuit, and there is no short. When you hit on something of low ohms, you've isolated the problem to a smaller area, and can keep tracing that wiring back to the fuse box to find your short.

Visual Inspection Chart
No GO to A2 . A2 CHECK THE POWER DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR FOR LOCK OPERATION — CIRCUIT 117 (PK/BK)
Inoperative Power Door Lock Actuator
Measure the voltage at the inoperative power door lock actuator connector Pin 1, Circuit 117 (PK/BK), and ground while operating the door lock switch to the LOCK position.
No REPAIR Circuit 117 (PK/BK). TEST the system for normal operation. A3 CHECK THE POWER DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR FOR UNLOCK OPERATION — CIRCUIT 118 (PK/O)/163 (R/O)
Measure the voltage at the inoperative power door lock actuator connector Pin 2, Circuit 118 (PK/O) or 163 R/O, and ground while operating the door lock switch to the UNLOCK position.
No REPAIR Circuit 118 (PK/O) and/or 163 (R/O). TEST the system for normal operation.
