I have a 1999 V reg 1.8 Ford Focus LX. Problems with central locking and a door that wont unlock at all.
1. the central locking only works to lock the car if the front passenger door is locked. If this is the case, the driver and passenger door behind driver can be unlocked and locked fine. But nothing happens with the front driver door. If the I have a routine of having to ensure the driver door is open when locking the front passenger manually from the inside otherwise all the doors will lock. Any ideas?
2. the rear passenger door behind the front passenger will not unlock remotely or manually from inside or out. It is stuck in the locked posistion. When I try to unlock in manually from the inside it springs shut and even if I hold it in the unlocked posistion and try to open it from inside or out, still will not open/unlock. I guess its probably the locking mechanisim itself but cannot get to it without being able to open the door. Any ideas how to open the door otherwise will be a great start.
As a note to the above, I have checked fuse 63 and is fine, has been replaced as well. The central locking thingy has been disconnected and reconnected. Still no joy. At least if I can get point 2 fixed, I'll be happy.
I have kids and parking outside my house is on the left hand side of the road but have to get the kids out the other door which takes them out into the busy road and as you can guess, Im keen to fix it for their sake, if not my sanity
Look forward to any great suggestions.
Thanks in advance
