Napa etc can tell u or library sec629. U cud just have bad switch or relay. A datastream run will confirm the modules

Door locks are controlled by the body control module This module operates a relay that controls door lock function. The relay may be bad or the module may not be getting a signal from the speed sensor to let it know when to lock the doors when the vehicle is in motion. Check engine light on? Scan for codes that might pertain to this failure

Check to see if there is 12 volts at the horn positive connection when someone pushes the horn button on the steering wheel. If there is voltage, and no sound, you need a new horn. If there is no voltage when the horn button is pressed, you need to troubleshoot the rest of the electrical circuit. First look in your fuse box for a blown horn fuse. Then try replacing the horn relay.

no -- the bolts holding the fender on are along the inside under the bonnet in the gutter , up under the fender at the rear and around the front panel
you will have to remove the plastic inner guard to get to some bolts

Have you checked your camshaft sensor? It's possible that the vane on the Synchronizer is misaligned.

P1409 is an EGR code and not related to the o2 heater circuits. The PCM controls the heater circuits via drivers internal to the PCM. HIghly unlikely all drivers are bad. Most PCM's can't be tested without factory equipment and are replaced with known good ones for testing. DId this heater circuit issue start all of a sudden?

When you say rocky spot, what do you mean? If you mean there were rocks in the roadway, you could have put a small hole in the transmission pan which leaked all the fluid out of it. First thing I would do is check the fluid level on the transmission dipstick and look for leaks on the ground under the car.

You have at the very least a serious problem with misfiring. All of the above suggestions are possibilities, and sorting them out is a daunting task. Also consider possibility of serious slippage in the transmission (rpm surges and lack of pickup may be indicative). In any case, your problems really need professional diagnostics that are likely way beyond DIY. It's also likely to be very expensive. And multiple problems are also likely. Seriously, you need to take stock on whether the cost is worth it, with no guarantee that all the problems will be fixed, and especially given your past experience with this vehicle. Me thinks it's probably time to bite the bullet, stop throwing good money after bad odds, and move on. Frankly, a frequently failing 2002 Ford Taurus is not a good bet!

There are many things to check for this. You'll need a volt/ohm meter schematics and patience. I have the schematics for an 03, should be the same. You up to this??

If I remember correctly, that year Taurus still had the old style lock buttons by the window glass. You should be able to use a sharp object and dig into the plastic door lock by the window. Knife, box cutter, anything that will gouge the button enough to get a purchase to pull the lock up. Pull it up, open the door, then remove the door panel to find out what's wrong. Probably open circuit in the door wiring or broken clip for the rods.

Ya could find someone with a slim-jim who knows how to hook the rod to unlock the door. Ford dealer? Locksmith?

Scan for codes stored ion the OBD computer. Many auto parts stores can do this for you at no charge. Based on the results - a complete tune up may be in order.

Good luck!
