SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: ford explorer 1997 xlt, the inside door handle does not work

I had the same problem and I finally found the solution after taking the panels from the inside of the door. Ford makes these vehicles with plastic clips to hold the bar that releases the latch and after so much repetitive usage of them they break. so most likely you will need to go to a ford dealership to get these clips which are stupidly priced at $3.00 a piece. All you need to do is take out the old pieces and put in the new and they'll most likely last you for another 10 yrs. but that's not a guaranteed fix from Ford.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer - Drivers side door lock, rear

Aside from the fuses, your drive side power door lock may be failing to work because of a bad door-lock relay system, or, alternatively, the locking switch/button, itself, is not malfunctioning and in need of replacement.

A great handyman site that specifies the above probable causes and more is the following link:

Good luck!

SOURCE: The Fob on my 2001 Ford Explorer will not lock all doors

The problem is not with the FOB, it's within the vehicle. All the FOB does is send a signal to a modual and the modual sends signals to all the locks. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

SOURCE: 2002 FORD EXPLORER DOOR LOCK SHORT DRAINING BATTERY

I just spoke to ford(cause I have the same exact problem), and they told me it's sounds as if the door power lock acuator is going bad. You can buy the part for around $110(plus tax) at autozone, and have someone replace the defective one. Or, go to a ford dealership and they will replace it for some where around $249 hope this helps.

2002 Ford Explorer Front passenger door won't lock or unlock with fob or door controls. Every once in a while though, it will work. But that is rare. What is wrong? All the other doors work.


Door control, meaning a key or the key pad? If it is the keypad or FOB, then your problem is the lock actuator. Replace the door latch inside the door. If you have problems with the key...There are rods and/or cables that release the lock. On these there are plastic clips that hold the rods/cables to the latch and the door handles and key lock cylinder. If one breaks it will usually work. But if two break, you get the problem you have now. Too much slop. Your best bet to find them is at a salvage yard.

Ford explorer door lock


Pull panel off and have a look at the connection rod and latch assembly.
Rod should go from lock/handle to key hole, to latch assembly.

Could also end up being a bad lock solenoid. (the power lock itself)

Hope this helps

96 ford explorer power locks or windows not working


On a 96' Ford Explorer XLT (like mine) the code is in the trunk of the truck behind the plastic cover where your tire jack and wrench are! There will be two plastic knobs that you will have to turn to open and lift it off, real simple. The code will be on the fender wall, bring paper and pen to write and will need a flash light so you can see the code clearly.

The code is real close the the plasic and kinda hard to see. Hope this helps! If you dont see the above,then try looking around in that area for a 5 digit code, in the fender well or around the jack, or even around the rear washer bottle. Most people have said its around the jack.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated).

I can`t change the temp on the climate control on my 98 Explorer.No matter where you set the temp control it is always on full heat.Where is the problem,under the hood or in the dash? Thanks


check the knob, they are known to crack. and when they do, you are just turning the knob, not the shaft. if the knob is good, the blend door actuator may be bad/stuck
