My 1996 Ford contour driver side will not open. It wont unlock or open from the inside or out. It used to open from the in and out when I hit the unlock button but now it wont do either. I opened it when it was lock the other day now it wont open at all. I fixed this problem once before but now I have no idea what to do. I cant get the penel off and see whats up because I cant get the panel off. What do I do?

I assume that your car has no lock cylinder that you can use to unlock the door with a key. If this is the case, I suggest that you get someone with experience breaking into cars, such as a locksmith, to open the door for you. If you are a AAA member, they will generally do this free of charge (just tell them you locked your keys in the car and make sure the keys are really in there and the doors are locked). This is not an advertisement, but you might want to consider joining AAA if you are not already a member- they offer free towing, jump starts, recovery of keys locked in the car, and discounts at hotels.

On a 1998 Ford Contour, can I replace the driver side door opening mechanism with the back door one?


Have to open the door & then remove the door panel,
to see what the issues are, with the inside or outside
lock mechanism

Then buy the required parts at a dealer or salvage yard

On my 1996 ford contour gl the drivers side window doesn't work at all but all the other windows that the drivers side can control work


Each window has its own little servo motor and the drivers side is usually the one that wears out first. Considering it has done the most work in the past 17 years, it has probably died and gone to heaven. Should be under a hundred dollars to have a new one put in.

Ford contour alarm sounds and the trunk pops up when I hooked the car. Battery back up and will not start now.


Try using your key in drivers and passengers door to lock and unlock it. That works on some vehicles to reset/disarm, security/anti-theft systems. Otherwise you may have to check owners manual or call Ford dealer service dept for quick instructions.

The lock on the driver side door wont unlock and the door wont open


Hey Kim!

Well, the first question is, and please don't think I am under estimating you on anything, is can you pull up at all on the lock rod? Or, does it feel jammed? Second, yes, the door has to be open to remove the panel because of the bottom pins that hold the panel to the door.

So, let's try and get the door open first.

I just replaced alternator and 175 mega fuse in 1996 contour . now power mirrors, radio, clock, and interior light do not work. fuse diagram only references radio and fuse is good. is there a larger...


If the manual fails to include or mention certain items for a problem, it would be best to go to the fuse boxes. Normally a blown fuse is caused by a short after the main fuse. So this means you may will have to check the fuses individually. The fuses are normally located under the dash on the driver side. The cover would have its own labels for you to identify which fuse are found inside the box.

Timing belt broke. Open the oil fill cap and crank, if you don't see the valve lifters moving, then the timing belt has definately broken.
