Cant open back overhead door

I can not open my back overhead door. The dealership wants 1200.00 to open it...Why????? Cant I just have the electircal eliminated, and open it manually? Very expensive, especially when I need it opened for my part time business. Thanks Bev from Michigan

    I have a similar problem -- It seems that the backdoor is not fully closed, so that when the car doors are unlocked the unlocking mechanism does not get engaged and the lock remains locked. The result is that you cannot open the door -- not fully locked (the electrical unlock will not work) but still locked enough, so that pulling on the handle will not open it. Is there a way to mechanically disegage the lock?

How do i reprogram the power sliding door on a 2005 buick terraza

From the owner's manual:

If your vehicle has

the dual power sliding doors, both doors will have

to be reset. To reset a door, do the following:

1. Check to be sure the power sliding door is

unlocked and securely closed.

2. Turn the ignition to LOCK.

3. If the power sliding door overhead console

switch is in the override (deactivation)

position, return to the activation position.

4. Open the sliding door using the remote

keyless entry transmitter, overhead console

switch, or passenger switch. Allow the door to

travel fully open.

If the door does not travel to the fully open

position, press the overhead console switch to the

override (deactivation) position and slide the

door fully open and closed. Check for foreign

objects in the tracks. Repeat the procedure starting

with Step 1. If the door resists travel to the fully
open position, see your retailer for service.

Dome lights don't come on when you open the doors but light works when you push button on dome.

The dome lamp has a switch that can be put into several positions. "Door" "Off" and "On" If you want the light to come on when you open the door then you must have the switch in the "Door" position.
The "Off" position will only let the dome lamp work when you override it with the dash control and the "On" position will leave the light on at all times - door open or not.

I need the diagram lay out for my fuse box in the door panel my cigerette lighter is out and i know its not my cell phone charger it is good . i cant figure out which one is that fuse. please help! 1998...

go to your local ford dealer and ask if they could look up the wiring diagram, and maybe print it off for you, they have the access to a database specific to each make, depending on what dealership, so just ask and see what they can do. I spent 3 months interning at 2 dealerships, most of the time the service guys aren't that money hungry so they should be willing to help you out if you are polite, and they aren't busy. ask for the service manager, that would be your best bet. Good Luck :)

Power liftgate not working with FOB, overhead console, or when manually try to open it on 2003 Lincoln Navigator. This causes the lights to stay on in the car while driving and the suspension will not...

Sounds like the sensor/switch that detects if the door is closed or open is faulty, you can get the part from the dealership and replace it yourself or take it into the dealership or any repair shop and have them check it out and fix it.
