Hey all seen similar thread to the one I'm posting but gunna put it out there anyway.

 

My lovely ford focus (1999 estate model) has decided it no longer wants to lock (and living in my area thats not a good thing)=transilation to those who don't share my wit is that my central locking is refusing to work properly and when I try it with fob button it locks then immediatly unlocks (even tried it with key in door and get same happening) after several attempts it only locks the driver door and have to manually lock back doors and front passenger via key, heard bout this fuse 64 thing but not quite certain o it location.

 

I consider myself a competant DIY mechanic so if anyone has any suggestions (other than take it to Ford dealer, I mean I own a focus estate do I sound like I'm made o money!!!)

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

and if I'm in the wrong section for this well what can I say I'm a Noob to this site!!!!

It could well be due to water in the drivers lock solenoid in the door or a busted central locking module.
I don't have access to my Haynes (working) but will endeavour to look up the location of the module for you as soon as possible unless someone else posts the location for you in the meantime.

I had a 1999 Mondeo with the same problem, water in the electrics was the problem.  I got shot of it at 12 years old as it was leaking like a sieve.  Happy bunny now with a water tight Focus.   :)
