      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Passenger Door Locking Problem

    Cheers Hubby1959. You're right on the first part it was in the drivers door causing this. In the locking motor assembly I found one of the diodes short circuit. Replaced both with 1N5401 diodes and now all sorted. Hope this helps anyone with similar problems. Regards Ian
  2. Our 2004 KA passenger door lock is behaving odd. Using the drivers door I can lock and unlock both doors. If I turn the key on the passenger side it immediately re-locks. The same happens if it is unlocked. Turn the key in passenger side and it locks and immediately unlocks. When sat inside the car, as if trying to lock myself in, I can push the door handle on drivers side and both lock. If I push passenger side, it immediately unlocks again. Now the odd thing..... If I unplug the drivers side door loom (near the hinge) the passenger door lock behaves normal. I can use the key to lock and unlock. When sat inside the car I can push the passenger door handle to lock it and pull it to unlock. Any advice is very welcome please? Thank you Ian
