Central Locking and rear door opening problem

Hi there,

I have just bought a 2000 Focus 1.8 Ghia and I have a couple of problems:
First the central locking remote key fob only unlocks the drivers door.
I can unlock the front passenger door with the key in the lock and I can lock it with the remote, but can't unlock it. I played about with locking and unlocking the passenger door and now the car wont stay locked. I took the passenger door panel off and removed the electrical connector to the lock and now the drivers door will stay locked with the remote, which suggests a problem with the passenger lock.

Secondly I can't unlock the rear doors at all. From inside or outside, with the remote or by pulling on the handle. Both are shut and won't open. I Suspect the child proof switches are activated. I was able to remove the rear door panel without opening the door. However,I still can't work out how to manually open these doors from inside the door. When I try the remote lock I can hear and feel a click on the rear lock mechanisms, but nothing when I try to unlock.

I'm just about to remove the passenger lock mechanism and see if it's shorting somewhere, but my immediate problem is how to open the rear doors with the panel removed. I removed the electrical connector and replaced but no joy. I have also tried reprogramming the central locking with the on/off ignition 4 times method with no joy. I have also removed the connectors to the siemens unit under the dash and checked fuse 63, but all good.

Any help?

Thanks in advance

Adam

Hello Adam, did you ever solve your door locking issues? I am having a similar problem with a 2000 SE wagon I just bought.

^^ A wagon!!!?? Why drive that monster? -jk

Hey, you gotta check the wiring in-between the car and the liftgate. Pull the rubber boot up, inspect wiring inside and then pull the rubber boot down and inspect again. Inspect this area even if this has nothing to do with your current symptoms.
