Default 2000 F150 power door locks not working


A while back, the passenger side power door lock stopped working with both
the key fob and the door switches. It barely moves when you push either
buttons. Thankfully, I can still operate the locks manually. Now, the
driver's side is starting to do the same thing. Has anyone experienced this
same problem? Is this a maintainence issue or am I looking at power door
lock actuator replacement as one my next weekend activities? Thanks in
advance for any help.

I need the same question answered about the power door locks not working
just as in the e-mail. Mine happened all at once to both doors, but still
the same thing. Just a few days ago, the driver side power door lock
stopped working with both
the key fob and the door switches. It barely moves when you push either
buttons. The same thing has happened to the passenger door later that day.
Thankfully, I can still operate the locks manually, but barely. Has
anyone experienced
this
same problem?

My 2000 model did that also. Door locks got real sluggish with remote or
door switch. Started with the drivers door and then the passenger door
started to do it also. Sometimes they would move a little and other times
not at all. After enough complaining to Ford dealer they replaced both lock
actuators under warranty and they have worked great since. They mentioned
something about moisture getting into the connections on the actuator and
the terminals corroding....

Well, I'll jump in but I am not a mechanic and this would be purely a guess.

The chances of both motors going out at the same time in a possibility, but
probably not. One motor going out and causing the other to go out could be
a realistic possibility since you said one went out just after the other.
They are both the same age and have been exposed to the same conditions.

Another thought would be something limiting the current. First, of course,
would be the fuse (#26 a 20 amp). If one motor had shorted or something, it
might have caused it to go out. You might see other indications of this,
check your owner's manual for common items or just check the fuse.

Have you noticed any other electrical problems like dim lights or buzzers
that don't really buzz? The battery in my truck just went out and yours may
be getting weak. If not weak, possibly bad connections limiting the current
from corrosion or bad grounding. As someone mentioned, corrosion in
electrical connectors can limit current flow. If you have the RAP module
(Remote Anti-theft Personality), it is common to both doors.

Does it make any difference how much electrical load is on the vehicle when
you work the locks?

Does it make any difference whether you are locking or unlocking the doors?

Do you remember the switches getting wet lately from a rain shower or
something?

If it was me, I would start with the fuse and then move to the Switch
(drivers side) or motor, whichever is easier to access, and check for
corrosion and voltage, and freedom of motor movement. Some oil or other
lubricant in a motor that is binding may release it.

I found out that it is the door actuators after all and if one goes the
other one is soon to go out also. Ford has replacements at $54.95 each.
They are the same part number whether it is the right or left door, but
you still have to specify which door and then look on the actuator itself
to determine which door it goes to. It will be marked RHD or LHD. Ford
will try to sell you new window guides at $89./door, you don't need them.
Don't let them talk you into it. The actuators have a different design so
they will look different but they do fit and work as they should.

I have the same problem w/ my 99 SuperCab. Can someone please post
instructions on how to change out actuators?

Thanks!
