  1. Thanks for that info. The connectors to the front doors have 6 wires and the rears only 3. Are you suggesting I apply 12 volts to the socket on the rear lock mechanism? The front doors lock and unlock again when I use the key fob (they wont stay locked), however if I disconnect the passenger door connector the drivers door will lock and remain locked. It makes no difference to the rears though.
  2. When I try to lock the doors on the key fob I can feel and hear the mechanism click, but when I try to unlock with the key fob I can't hear or feel anything. I was also having the problem of the front two doors locking and then unlocking on their own. I disconnected the passenger door lock wiring and the driver door would then stay locked when locked, which maybe points to a problem with the passenger door lock. It's all very odd. The car is due it's MOT and I'm pretty sure the rear doors not opening will mean a failure.
  3. No, it's definitely pulling on the rod and I don't think it's come un-attached at the other end. I think the child safety latch is applied that stops children opening the doors while inside. I'm trying to work out how to open the door with the panel removed. I would have thought there is some way. Also they don't open from the outside and having taken the front mechanism out I see that it's 2 separate rods one for the interior handle and one for the outer, so the chances of both being broken on both rear doors are very slim.
  4. Hi there I have a problem with the rear doors of my 2000 Focus Ghia. The central locking isn't unlocking them and I can't open them from inside either. I suspect the child safety mechanism is applied. I was able to remove the door panels, but I don't know how to now open the door. Any help please?
