2001 Ford Taurus

Our 2001 Ford Taurus has electronic locks on the doors. It seems
these days when you try and unlock all the doors with the car remote
or with the unlock all doors in the front, The back passenger door
doesn't work. The front is sproradic. So now we have to do it
manually. I can here it as if it wants to work but the lever doesnt
seem to be catching to push it up or down.

Afraid a visual inspection is going to be needed.

Look for sticky solenoid
measure voltage to solenoid with switch engaged

Re: 2001 Ford Taurus

it's most likely the
lockmotors(soleniods)themselves on a ford.the rubber boots rot and
corrosion does the rest.

Re: 2001 Ford Taurus

HI sorry to but in but I have the exact same problem with my 1999 Ford
Taurus door locks. Where is the solonoid and is it hard or should I say
really detailed to fix by a shade tree mechanic as myself?

What exact same problem do you mean?

Please include an edited copy of the original
poster's inquiry above your response so other
newsgroup readers can understand the problem
and you can benefit from their knowledge.
This is basic newsgroup courtesy.

Thank you.

Rodan.
