    Have same problem on drivers side door. Seems to fail most when door is in hot sun. Probably bad solenoid that activates the lock.

Why isn't my right sliding door not opening or closing

If sliding door is electric, that's where I would start, check the electrical circuits for voltage and ground. If that checks out, the issue may be mechanical?
Your owners manual should give you some operational info for the sliding door.

Rear hatch door in ford windstar-mechanism came apart

My back hatch would not open but it appears the lock was sticking and the return spring to the handle is broken. We used the key to unlock the back door and then door opened. Then husband sprayed WD 40 in all the lock holes. Now once we open the door we have to push the handle back down as return spring is still missing but the door opens :) . My van is a 2002 Ford Windstar.

Keyless door locks won't lock or unlock front doors sometimes it unlocks one door but not the other door 2001 ford windstar how do you change the module Have been told it is the module. Have to use key to...

I suggest you start by the basics as replacing the remote battery and then you can ask your local Ford dealer where the module is situated on the car as some of them could be very tricky to get to, ask about the price as well because it might be cheaper to get an aftermarket system fitted to your car.

My windstar dosent unlock all doors while using the remote

more than likely the power door locks on the doors that won't lock are messing up or you reciever for the remote is going bad and not sending power to them doors. try and lock the doors from the drivers door and see if they all lock if they do then it's the remote reciever if they don't then it could be the door locks on the doors them selfs

Power door locks

This could be hard to diagnose for someone that doesn't know about electronically controlled automotive systems . There are two electronic control modules involved ! (FEM) front electronic control module and the (REM) rear electronic control module . The first step would be to hook up a scan tool to look at input data to the control modules. Corrupt signals to the module ! B+ power an ground circuits problems . The wiring inside the harness from the body to driver door , opening an closing of the door breaks the wires over time . Load testing the circuit will find the problem.
