confused Dancing Doorlocks

Whats the go with the Dancing doorlocks. The dumlock system that Ford have got is terrible. I suffer from this problem intermittently where all locks close except for the front passenger door lock. that stays down and causes the bloody horn to beep 3 times. Im having to sit in my car and lock the doors manually in succession before im able to close them properly with the remote. I have been told this is somewhat a solenoid problem thats very common.
How much does this normally take to fix and how hard is it to do.....

My EL unlocks itself on hot days and sets the alarm off. My parents ED does the same.

Re: Dancing Doorlocks

Never had any trouble like that, tho ex's father had that with an AU, did it every single time.

Sounds like a solenoid problem.

Re: Dancing Doorlocks

My old's EL Fairmont has had this problem. On hot humid days (we had a trip to Sydney and it happened) the doors would sit there and lock/unlock/lock/unlock over and over. The smartlock system/doorlocks were replaced under factory waranty.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Re: Dancing Doorlocks

If you have a look in the Tech site (click the link at the top of the page) you will find an article that discusses these issues and how to remedy them.

Re: Dancing Doorlocks

Cut the two sensing wires to the front door solenoids, that will cure the problem, and most people never use the key anyway.
