You need to order an "actuator" and install it, or go to the Ford dealer (or your trusted mechanic) and have the actuator replaced. The actuator is a solenoid that locks an unlocks the door latch. You can do it yourself if you are willing to take your door panel off and slice up your knuckles a bit.

These things have been a source of revenue for Ford for all models for many years. They just wear out too soon under normal use.

Both my 2004 Freestar side door actuators stopped working (intermittently at first) withing 2 months of each other in 2007. I ordered them from Bob Utter Ford (1-800-259-3560), for $42 each plus $9 shipping. See if your Ford dealer can match that before you order.

    I have experienced that it is actually the control module at fault. Mine was usually with locking. I can apply power to each "actuator" individually manually and they work 100%. This happened with both the transmitter or manual buttons. I can hear the relay in the dash operate (click) but it does not output power to the "actuators" The relay tests at 100% the weak link is Fords crappy computer modules.

Where is the fuse that locks/unlocks doors in 2006 ford freestar

The smart junction box - a electronic control module controls the door locks . There is not a single fuse just for the door locks , there are fuse's that power up the SJB but not just for the door locks ! There are relays incorporated into the SJB for door lock open an close control ,there are not replaceable .

2005 Freestar "door open signal"

Chances are the autolock doesn't work because it "sees" a door open. Check the plunger between the door and the frame of each door to see if the plunger is broken, bent, or otherwise not working.

1999 Ford Explorer Door Locks

Unfortunately, This is a very common problem with Ford Explorers! Ford replaces the locks when it encounters this issue. I managed to unseize my passanger door and tailgate lock, but the drivers door lock is broken beyond repair. You can purchase new remotes for your explorer and program them very easily. Just google ford key fobs...
