Unlock all doors in 2003 expedition

Hello all. I had a 2001 expedition and when I would open the drivers
door ALL the doors would unlock. How do I enable this because on my
2003 it doesnt work.

Please help, the kids are going nuts

Thanks

Try clicking the unlock button twice instead of once. The first click
should open the driver's door, the second should open the rest.

I am talking about when I turn the truck off and am inside. My old
truck would unlock all doors when I opened mine from the inside. This
doesnt have to do with the key fob

This is just a guess, because I don't know how they work but ....

Open the rear doors and look for a child safety lock located somewhere on
the inner door panel. See if it is on. If so, turn it off and try everything
again.

Checked that as well. Does anyones truck do what I am looking for?
Unlock the doors when you open the drivers door from the inside?

That may sound convenient but, it may open you up to a
security problem if someone devious is nearby when your wife
or kid opens the driver door. Suppose you get out for some
reason like pumping gas and someone hitches a ride because
your excess doors are unlocked. It happens here around the
city from time to time. The doors should remain locked
unless they are needed for passengers. I can think of no
reason you would always want all the doors to unlock when
the driver door opens. It only takes a second to flick the
switch from either front door if you need them unlocked and
each will open with it's handle unless you have the child
safety locks set. Think about it.

On my '02 F350, it takes two mashes on the unlock button to open 'em
all... 1st opens the driver's door, 2nd opens the rest..

Re: Unlock all doors in 2003 expedition

You probably have the "auto lock" function enabled.
(locking all doors when speed over 3 MPH)
You can turn it off , see owners manual
Or get used to hit the "unlock" button when you exit the car
( I know, PITA, my '05 explorer does the same thing)

As far as I know not 1 Ford model will unlock doors if you open drivers door
unless you had a aftermarket or add-on Ford alarm installed.
They unlock all doors if it sees an "door open" signal

But the autolock feature will just not lock the doors right, not unlock
them?

"just not lock" ?????????

Its needs to see brake pedal, gear and speed over 3mls an hour and then it
will lock all doors, but NOT unlock them when coming to a stop.
Would be nice if you put it in park it would unlock them, but no

Like I said, you need to hit the unlock button on door or remote
