Power lock problems

Hello all. just got a question for a knowledgable mechanic.

I have a 2000 Ranger, V6, 79k miles, used. Good little truck, but, I am having problems with the power locks. When I use the remote entry button, the driver side lock NEVER works. The Passenger side works more often...but here lately it hasn't been working at all. I have tried both keyless remotes and have also changed the batteries in them. The power lock consoul(sp?) on the driver side wont work half the time for the passenger side also. Would you know what it could be causing them not to work?

Re: Power lock problems

Sure! The problem is the crappy actuators that Ford uses in almost all of thier models. You will have to replace both lock actuators to fix it.

Re: Power lock problems

lol...thanks
funny thing...I have owned 3 fords now. a 96 contour, 94 ford escort wagon, and now a ford ranger.

the countour, I had driverside power locks,windows, and a transmission.

the escort, I had the same

the ranger...this issue with the locks, and windows are both starting to act up...I am waiting for the transmission to go on it now!

It is something about me and fords...maybe I should learn to just strictly by GM!

Hey cbtdoc,

[QUOTE]the ranger...this issue with the locks, and windows are both starting to act up...I am waiting for the transmission to go on it now!QUOTE]

Yup, the whole mechanism is one unit for your locks and windows!!

I haven't popped off the door panels yet, but my wife's Explorer's front locks don't work either (the motors are running, but "nobody's home" =8*} ).

Since we live in a region that gets a real winter, I'm suspicious that they were frozen when she used the remote (as she loves to do) last winter and there's little plastic clips that connect the rods to the mechanism which are now somewhere in the bottom of the doors.
