Question about 1986 Ford Tempo
I needed to pop the hood of a 86 Ford Tempo, but the inside latch don't work
I have a 1999 Suburban that has several of the door latches that do not
operate properly with the remote button or the power door lock button
on the door. If your locks open okay with the key, it is most likely
the lock actuator that is the problem. The coils on these can get weak
and not be able to operate the locking mechanism. Changing them out is
probably required. Haven't actually changed mine yet, but have taken
door panel off to lubricate actuator rod. This helped only briefly.
Good luck. The actuators themselves are quite expensive from the
dealer. ($60-$80 each, excluding installation)
If you mean the door handle on the inside of the vehicle, it is probably broken. So, when you pull on it it can't pull the actuator rod. You have to change the handle assembly. They cost about $40. But you have to drill out the rivet. So buy a pop rivet gun and a trim removal tool. 1. Un-bolt the window regulator panel (after you have removed the trim panel) 2. Pull the top the panel back a bit. Lowering the window about 3 inches will help. But, don't pull on the panel too hard. 3. Stick rim removal tool in there and pop off the power door look rod. 4. Use you hand and pop off the handle actuation rod 5. Drill out the rivet on the latch assembly 6. Slide assembly forward and remove. 7. Do things in reverse to reassemble
