Greetings. Just bought a one-owner dealership serviced 2001 Taurus SE with 74,000 original miles.
Several items that need attention:
1) Doors unlock with remote but won't lock. Any ideas?
2) Factory radio is a cassette player but I want to upgrade to a factory CD player (in dash).
Will a 2007 head unit work in a 2001? They look the same.
Do I need a radio code when I change the head unit?
3) Can digital AC and heater controls be used in a Taurus that originally had dials?
4) Can upshifts and downshifts be adjusted on the trans?

Ok that's it! Many thanks for helping 😎

As far as 1), do you have more than one remote and neither of them will lock?

Do you have the Owners Manual? Some of the features can be changed. I doubt the door lock can be shut off but it’s still worth a look. Things like the doors automatically locking can be turned on or off.

I don’t know regarding the rest of the list, except the shift points might be able to be changed by a custom tuning shop. Gone are the days of changing jets in a Holley carb or adjusting kickdown linkage, now you have to plug in a laptop and change programming.
