There should be a latch on the inside of the door to enable it or disable it.

Just bought an 03 Focus. Cant unlock the child lock. There is no small hole in the door or I cant see a switch to unlock it. Help!!

I don't have this vehicle, but a quick web search indicates one of two ways to accomplish this task. Most sedans, SUVs, and such these days have child safety locks on the rear doors. Almost always, this switch is located on the rear face of door (the area that can't be seen when the door is closed). The general way to lock / unlock is to open the rear door and push a switch to the appropriate icon (either an open or closed padlock). The other way that I found, specific to the Focus, is to use your ignition key instead of a switch. Take your key to the back door, open it, and look for a keyslot that is in the area of the icons. My research indicates that the key vertical is locked and the key turned horizontal is unlocked.

Good luck.

The car is a 2005 Ford Focus ZXW. How do I cancel the child locks for the rear doors? I have looked at the small diagram on the door post, but am unable to find the "keyhole".

It is just a slot not realy a key hole. You could use a small screw driver too. Just look straight into the latch of the door and you will see a little slot, cream colored plastic I believe. Vertical is lock and horizontal is unlock. Try it and see what you can accomplish. I have a rear door that I can't get to lock which I am investigating right now.

I cannot locate the child locks on my 00 Ford Focus car

Hi there,

Rear Door Child Safety Locks - Child safetly locks are located on the rear edge of each rear door. To activate the locks, you must insert your car key into the opening and turn to the locked "vertical" position. To disengage the child safety lock, insert your car key and turn to the center position. You can please follow the below link for more information -

(Just copy and past the above link in your web browser)

Good Luck!!
