Question about 2008 Ford Explorer
My 2008 Explorer's door lock switces, both driver and passenger, will not close the door locks. When I push close nothing happens. Yet if any of the doors are locked and I push the CLOSE button on either door, the locks will open any lock than is closed. The key remote works just fine and allows me to lock the doors. Any clues out there? Thanks Larry
This is not a good thing. Ford uses a computer called the GEM and that means General Electronics Module. It controls:
They are located behind the radio in the dash and they are $$$ about 600 USD.

try taking apart and cleanig all contacts first. make sure you are getting power to switch. Sounds more switches are going bad. They usually last about 5 to 7 years before they start going out.

I do have a book on the 1996 but no on me but I have had a problem with it the same, Get in and sit in the drivers set and push lock from the in side and then do the same but this time unlock it and then get out and try to use the remote. if no then try to do the same thing but in the passenger side. lock and then unlock. no then call the ford dealer shop and they have a alarm department that will help you and I know because I had then do a job on one of my other cars and I was charged $20.00 he did it on a side job.

The driver's side door handle will not open with remote or key on outside only after pulling handle and pressing interior button several times on 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

Mine did this. I went around to each door and sprayed a liberal amount of WD-40 in the latch, then open and closed each door about five times. It hasn't done it since. I think the switch inside was not moving freely.

Unfortunately, This is a very common problem with Ford Explorers! Ford replaces the locks when it encounters this issue. I managed to unseize my passanger door and tailgate lock, but the drivers door lock is broken beyond repair. You can purchase new remotes for your explorer and program them very easily. Just google ford key fobs...
