confused my Falcon AU central lock not working

With all the driving on Saturday i have now noticed my door lock on the passengers side left hand will not lock and it flutters when locked. The other two doors lock but this wont. It sounds like somethings not working properly.

________________________________________
When u press the remote it just lockes then unlocks straight away with a few beeps of the horn. the boot release still operates tho. so to unlock and lock the car we have to use the key. to top this off, the back passenger side door does not lock with the remote but it can only lock manual inside using the child lock method. To open that door you need to go inside the car and open from inside.
? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance

Re: my Falcon AU central lock not working

Sounds like your lock actuator is gone a comon AU problem. The bad news the lock and the actuator is one piece and will cost roughly $170 to replace. Is it an AU1 front door? Then Ford no longer make actuators for that model. Instead you have to use an AU2or3 part and some modifications to the BEM have to be made to prevent the locks from cycling after locking.

I've got a similar thing happening on my AU2 rear drivers side door, but the door seems to lock with the rest. I had someone walk up to it and open it which was a surprise to me.

Would this also be an actuator problem as well?

on AU series 1 door actuators are the same as EA-EL I think, easy enough to check down the wreckers.

mcsee yes it is, mine did the same thing, replaced it now fixed and locks
