Remote keyless power door locks, cruise control don't work

Posted by on

  • roland1952 Jul 29, 2008

    Hi, and thanks for the prompt response. I don't know if there's any difference in parts and function as they relate to my problem, but my Ford Focus SE wagon is a 2002 model, with the 16-valve V-Tec 2.0 L engine.


    I suspect that the problems of the non-working remote keyless entry system and the cruise control may be related.  I spoke to a Ford service manager at Gillingham Ford in Cleveland, Ohio, about the remote keyless door lock system and asked what electronic computer modules might be involved in the circuit that includes the remote keyless entry system.  He listed a couple of components he designated as "GEM's", or General Electronic Modules.  As I understand it, these two components are located under the hood and/or on a pillar.  Perhaps you can tell me where to find them.


    Only later -- the first time I tried to use the cruise control after the remote keyless entry system failed -- did I notice that the cruise control was not working.  It seemed an improbable coincidence and quite unlikely that both systems broke down at about the same time but are not related.  My suspicion is that both functions are somehow controlled or routed through one or both of the GEM's, although I could be wrong.  (It has happened on occasion.)  Anyway, the price the service manager quoted me on those modules was between $300 and $400 each, not including labor.  Ouch!  So I thought I would check out and see if it's something I can install myself.


    Thanks for your patience and indulgence,

I am not sure that these two problems are necessarily related. The fuse for the power door locks is located behind the fuse block. Remove the two bolts holdiong the block in and find the one fuse on the back.
The cruise control is usually a brake or clutch switch. Or possibly if you happened to install LED brake lights?

    Do the door controls for the locks still work, and did you check the fuse?

  • six-of-ten Jul 29, 2008

    At the library, you can find wiring diagrams for the cruise control and the remote locks in the Mitchell repair manuals. I have the diagram for a 2000 focus here, and it syas you need fuse numbers 53, 54, and 59 for the cruise control to work. It might be a place to start.

    The manuals also give a test proceedure for checking out the cruise control. It tells what voltage you should find at each of the ten plugs to the cruise module. The Module is buried behind the motor on the firewall, but you should be able to disconnect the plug and pull it up far enough to check for voltage.

    If you think you might want to change a relay, I have a wrecked Focus in my driveway. It still has all of those parts. I live on the east side in Painesville. sundbergguitars@hotmail.com

    One more thing. The remote door lock module is located behind the glove box. Squeeze the tabs on the glove box and the lid will flip forward.

SOURCE: Power Door Lock Problem

I have has my door panel off and realized that if the window switch becomes loose or falls off this will prevent the door switches from working. As far as the back window and lock. Same problem same problem on mine. The rivet that holds the actuator for the lock corrodes and the actuator binds in the window mechanism. Not easy to fix but fixable.

SOURCE: Keyless remote locks the doors but the horn doesn't honk.

First and foremost: THANK YOU! Leave it this way! That horn honk is annoying. There is an option on cars with factory alarms to disable the (annoying) horn feature by removing and re-inserting an electronic key usually found somewhere below the steering wheel. There is no problem with your alarm.

Hope this helped,

SOURCE: Power door locks do not work with keyless remote control

There are two multiplex control units - one on the driver side and one onthe passenger side - which one did you unplug? The one on the driver side is the main "Brain" while the other one is the one that houses the keyless reciever. According to the service manual, any troubleshooting of this system must begin with the one on the driver side. It can get quite involved because Honda does not provide actual troubleshooting (symptom) charts, just descriptions of the electrical connectors and what conditions should be present at each conector pin under what system condition. (each pin has to be tested to determine what is malfunctioning) The system is not capable of outputting fault codes of any kind.

SOURCE: Power door locks and driver side power window not

You can do it yourself.

Couple of times when you replace the remote battery, you might have them not working/ responding but just follow the procedure below.

Stand close to the car, hold down the open and close knobs for about 10 seconds. Press them at the same time for 3 seconds; then press the open button as the car opens.

The above procedure is applicable to a lot of car brands. It does not matter how many knobs you might have on the remote fob.

I have carried this procedure out on a lot of brands ranging from Honda, Toyota, Rover, Ford, etc. and it works perfectly well.

Good luck and Rate this.

Cheers

SOURCE: Power door locks and driver side power window not working

The solution to this issue was recently discovered during our most recent trip to the shop. We told them not to leave the window down when they changed the battery... BUT DID THEY LISTEN...NOOOO.

So quite by accident I was finally able to correct and then test fail the system and test and fix again...

Here you go.;
1. disconnect the battery and connect both the positive and negative cables together(after disconnected))
2. disconnect the window and lock controller in the driver's side door.
3. Leave cables connected for at least 5 minutes
4. Re-connect door window controller and locks wiring harness
5. Place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
6. Connect Battery starting with the negative cable(ensuring not to connect then disconnect, (one swift motion)
7. open drivers side door and turn key to the off position(do not remove)
8. You should hear a series of dings
9 Once dings are heard remove the key from the ignition and you should hear the door lock solenoids activate..
10. Congrats.. Your done and the windows and locks work.

My problem is that key remote control works only very close to the car i change the battery still the same problem i don't have a spare key to test also petrol door lock and unlock not working wit


Your keyless remote is equipped with 2 different systems. There is the RF system (long range, lock control only) and the IR system (short range, locks and convenience features such as remote window roll-up and roll-down). It sounds like your RF system isn't working. The only way to test the system, that I know of, is with a Mercedes scanner. It is likely a bad remote.

Hi Mike i have a 2001 olds aurora with both rear doors and windows out of commission. Seems like neither is getting any power the windows don't go up or down and my keyless remote will not unlock or...


There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.

How do i reprogram electronic door locks


Programming Electronic Door Lock Control System NOTE: The electronic door lock control processor (14B001) erases all previous keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601) from memory when the keyless entry remote transmitters are programmed or reprogrammed. The electronic door lock control processor can store up to four keyless entry remote transmitters in memory.


  • To program (or reprogram) keyless entry remote transmitter into the electronic door lock control processor, perform the following steps:
  1. Turn ignition switch to the RUN position and momentarily short the two terminals of the program connector taped to the wire assembly and located behind the glove compartment. All doors should lock and then unlock. Remove shorting pin.
  1. Press any button on keyless entry remote transmitter. All doors should lock and then unlock to verify the keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed. If door locks do not respond, press button again (up to three times maximum with the same keyless entry remote transmitter).
  1. Repeat the above step to program additional keyless entry remote transmitters into the electronic door lock control processor (up to four keyless entry remote transmitters maximum).
  1. Turn ignition switch OFF. All doors should lock and then unlock.
  1. Check operation.
