Most likely either a bent door locking rod or a bad acuator, you'll need to have that door panel removed to find out which.is door shutting all the way?nothing obstructing the door from properly closing? is the door locking slide switch in panel blocked in someway?try locking it manually to see how it feels, does it have free travel back and forth? if not then that panel will have to be removed to find the problem. hope this helps!!

SOURCE: Rear Door Electric Lock buzzing and stuck

It's the power lock solenoid. There is a tiny plastic piece that connects the solenoid (motor) to the door lock mechanism (thin metal rod or two). Likely, the plastic piece has become disengaged. This is by design so that if there is a problem with the mechanism the motor does not burn out. You will need to have the interior door panel removed to gain access to the interior of the door and the lock rod and solenoid need to be reconnected. The plastic clips used to go for $1-$2 when I worked in auto parts.

SOURCE: when i electronically lock the doors, the rear

Hello, sounds like your left rear door lock actuator is starting to go bad, nothing you can really do to fix the actuator itself. It's just gonna have to be replaced. I'd call around and get quotes for parts and labor, no one should charge you much more than a half hour(probably around 6 tenths of an our if it's a flat rate shop). Or if your pretty handy and have some tools and a good repair manual, you shouldn't have too much of an issue doing it your self... Hope this info helps...(subytech1)...

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Taurus Door locks making ugly noise

It sounds as if the lock solenoids are either very dirty, worn or some of both. I'd open up one of the door panels and locate the locking solenoid. Possibly clean it out with WD40 or such. If problem does persist you'll need to change the solenoids out (if this is the case I'd look for good units off a wreck, save youself a dollar or two)
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

This noise could be cause from the door lock actuator. If this is the Problem it will need replacement. But in most cases if the actuator is faulty the locks will jump, and not always lock on that door.

That sound is going to be your door lock motors wearing out. I would suggest getting them replaced pretty quickly as they will soon stop locking altogether. It's not cheap, but it isn't horribly expensive either.

2000 neon power lock problem


You need to take off the door panel, and replace the latch assembly which should come with the actuator. If the actuator comes seperatly, you can just replace it for cheaper.
