I removed my fuse box completely out and took a look behind it and all
I found was connections and a black rectangular plug in module. It
was labeled central timer module made in Germany but nothing else
resembling a fuse. I went down to the Auto Zone and read the Ford
Focus repair manual and it says this module is for the Chimes and
automatic dome light dimmer. Nothing on the central lock module
anywhere in the repair book. I called Ford Parts today and they said
that central module I found costs $45 but no details as to what it
does in his book. I called service and they wouldnít give me the
right time of day except for me to bring it down to figure out what
the problem was at $80 per hour.. With 90k on the speedometer, Iím
going to just use my key to lock and unlock the car like the good old
days for now. Iím going to check with a junk yard to see if I can
buy that timer module for less than $20 bucks and see if that fixes
the doors. Itís a 50/50 chance and I wonít lose as much money if it
doesnít work.. If it does work, I"ll be sure to post the good
news..

Which fuse box? The one in the engine compartment is the Auxillary fuse
box - the Central fuse box is behind the glove compartment and
accessible from inside the car. If you flex the sides of the glove
compartment (with a TINY bit of force) you can swivel it down to get to
the fuse panel.

On a UK focus the central locking fuse is on the BACK of this panel and
coloured yellow (20 amps), Fuse 63.

Correction - the US model is slightly different

If you haven't got a focus owners guide go to

<http://www.genuineflmservice.com/default.asp?page=E4>
Enter 2000, Ford, Focus
Download the owners guide.

That manual says the fuse panel is below and to the left of the steering
wheel (behind the cover). It's still on the BACK of the panel and is
Fuse 63 @ 20amps.

I found the fuse and fixed my door locks... they are working A-OK...

If you take the fuse block off the firewall mount and have dropped it
to the floor, flip it over to the back side where the wiring harnesses
plug into it.. The fuse is hidden under the wires. The largest
harness has two tie wraps holding it down to the fuse block, push that
wiring to one side with your finger between the two tie wraps. It
going to be tight but you will see a yellow 20 amp fuse buried under
those wires.. Thatís the baby causing the door locks not to operate
if itís blown.
What a place for a fuse to be located, only Ford could of come up with
a dumb idea like that..

For information - the Haynes manual says it's the central timing
module. It's responsible for the time control elements for the heated
rear windscreen, interior lights and intermittent wiper operation. The
module also activates a warning buzzer/chime for lights left on, and on
an automatic a warning if not parked with the selector in the P
position.
