never own a car with 1 fob.
and if one fob messes up, the battery inside is dead. (or worse)

its just cheezy switch. (can be cleaned)

Driver side door locking with remote but will not unlock, if i unlock it with key then remote will unlock all other door, if all doors are locked remote will not unlock the car. Once i manually unlock...

it is not the actuators, try a different remote, you may have an issue with the car security system/body computer not functioning on the unlock driver door command, one press of remote is unlock driver door and 2 presses is unlock the other doors.

The keyless remote fob for my AU Ford ute wont unlock the passenger door unless I press the button twice

Most remotes are designed to operate that way for saftey. Most Fords that I have worked on operate that way. Press the button once to unlock the driver's door, press it twice to unlock the other doors.
This allows drivers to enter their door without wondering if someone is ducked down on the other side of the car ready to jump in when they hear the door unlock.

If your key has been working in some other way, and just started doing that, I am sorry, but, in all cases I'm aware of that's normal.

I hope this helps.

The drivers door opens with key remote but other doors will not open without unlocking the passenger door from inside. Just bought the car today and there is not a operators manual - can you help? Pete

How To Do It!
Time Required:
10 seconds Tools Needed:
  • One of your keyless entry remotes Procedure:
    By default, the Focus Keyless Entry system requires you to press the unlock button twice to unlock all the doors, as the first press only unlocks the driver's side door. You can change this. 1) Stand within remote range of your car 2) Hold down both the lock and unlock buttons SIMULTANEOUSLY for about 5 seconds. The horn will chirp and lights will flash to signal that you have altered the setting. You can repeat this procedure to switch between "one press" mode and "two press" mode.

    Need the steps to programme the remote

    Remote Programming Instructions

    1. Driver's door OPEN and unlocked, all other doors closed and locked.

    2. Insert YOUR key in ignition, DO NOT TURN, remove key.

    3. Using the MANUAL lock/unlock button ON THE DRIVERS DOOR, slowly press lock and unlock 5 times (count the lock 5 times and unlock 5 times).

    4. Shut door.

    5. Open door.

    6. Using the lock/unlock button ON THE DRIVERS DOOR, slowly press lock and unlock 5 times (count the lock 5 times and unlock 5 times).

    7. With the door open insert your key into the ignition, turn to on position (DON'T START), wait 5 seconds. Turn off and remove key.

    8. Locks should cycle once (Car will lock and then unlock once). If they don't cycle or they cycle more than once, do steps 1-7 over.

    9. Now using the remote, push lock button, hold for one second,
    release. The locks should cycle once. If not, start over and go slower.

    10. Close the door. Open the door. Press the lock button on the remote. The locks should cycle. Close the door. Press the lock button on the remote, the doors should lock. Press again and the doors should unlock.

    Drivers Door Lock Problem

    Press the passenger side door lock button. if the driver side door unlocks now but wont unlock when you hit the driver side door lock button, it is usually a network communication problem with the B CAN or a faulty Body Control Module.

    If remote locks and unlocks driver door but does not unlock passenger doors,then follow the advice above:
    Get in the car using the key to unlock the doors. From the passenger side lock and unlock your doors using the button on the passenger door. Get out and the remote should now unlock all the doors with 2 presses.
    Worked perfectly for me after several other suggestions (and dealer) failed.
