First off, welcome to the forum.
It sounds like you have water in the lock solenoid, it's quite common.
You may be able to get away with cleaning it up and oiling it up or you may require a new lock motor.
Btw, I've noted this to the focus forum as it's more of a problem than an introduction.
:)

The drivers one is usually the master lock and if it plays up it affects the others.

Welcome Dan, as they say, you're never bored with a ford!

Just a word, be gentle with removing the door cards, I had to take one off one of my previous Mondeos and got a little ham fisted and busted the clips that run along the window edge. It annoyed me for a long time that it wouldn't sit tight against the window.

Best of luck, let us know how you get on!
