  1. Hi, 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 :P Look forward to any great suggestions. Thanks in advance
  2. Thanks gregmarko and artscot79. I'll try both tomorrow. However my left rear passenger door is stuck on lock. Can't unlock it, even manually on the inside. At a complete loss with that one. Thanks once again.
  3. Thanks rog99. I'll check it out tomorrow. Appreciate your response. I think I might have to invest in one of these manuals :)
  4. Hi Having real truoble with my central locking - need help. Ford Focus 1.8 LX 1999 5 door. So this is how I lock my car. If front passenger door is unlocked, first open the drivers door (right hand drive), lock the front passenger door from the inside and any other door. Then I can use the remote central locking on my key. Sometimes the left rear passenger door doesn't lock or unlock manually from the inside. It never seems to do anything remotely. Sometimes the right rear passenger door works and sometimes not. Front passenger does not work off the remote but if locked from inside with all doors shut it locks them all, sometimes the rear left passenger door works this way. Would is be possible the left rear passenger motor is dead and causing a weird problem? Or would it just be best to replace the whole cental locking? Or even both? I know it's not fuse 63, I have changed this and checked it's not blown again. Boot button works fine. Thanks in advanced. Louisp
