We are working with a 1997 P-regâ€™ early Mark 2, and a Ford provided 3-button radio remote key.
When you try to remotely lock the doors, they unlock themselves again. Itâ€™s as if the driverâ€™s door is still open, but the interior lights go off when you close it. If you just use the key in the driverâ€™s door lock, all four doors lock as usual.
You can then remotely unlock the passenger doors, but the driverâ€™s door stays locked. Again, you can unlock the driverâ€™s door using the key in the door lock. If you just use the key in the driverâ€™s door lock, all four doors unlock as usual.
The plastic bar on the driverâ€™s door latch, which the door hooks on to, was badly worn, so I thought that this might be confusing the remote locking system into thinking that the door wasnâ€™t closed, However, renewing the door latch didnâ€™t cure the fault.
I agree. I've tried to check the wiring, as best as you can, at the usual weak points, ie. the door connector.
Therefore, I'm looking for the cheapest suitable door locking motor in the UK.
Now, there's a small selection of OSF motors on eBay. One of them, (Item No. 110506892095) is from a 1999 ST24. Would this fit my 1887 LX? Surely, Ford wouldn't have designed and manufactured a completely different door lock for just one model?
