1A Auto Parts: @Matt Freda
Thank you for watching. Unfortunately we do not have a video for your
application. We will keep this repair in mind for future videos.
scsammy: Great video! Bought a new lock actuator for my 2000 Explorer from 1AAuto
and installed it today. Thanks to the video it took less than an hour.
troy boehm: Do u have a video on replacing the door latch assembly on2000 explorer?
mine wont unlatch very good but will open good from outside
Joe blow goes: Will this fix my door problem? My door doesn't stay close. It doesn't latch
on to the body of the car. Both of the door handles work, but when i try to
close the door it just bounces back.
Matt Freda: I have what I believe is a driver side door airbag, it's an Eddie Bauer
edition...how should I go about working around this?
Jose Figueroa: Would this fix my passager door? My problem is that when i use keyless
entry the passenger button wont pop up unless a bang the door a bit and
sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt lock or unlock?
outl0r: do you have this video for a toyota corolla 03?
timothy gray: nevermind as soon as i got the clip held up to the handle rod , i could see.
thank you for the awesome videos.
James Troutman: I have a 1998 Ford Explorer XLT. My drive side passenger door won't open.
It's like the lock is stuck. And the problem is, actually Getting the door
open to replace the lock actuator. Any tips??
bimmjim: My driver side back door is stuck in the locked position. I can't even get
the door open to take it apart. ? ? ?
TheDaltonboii: What would cause my explorer to idle at about 600 and when the heat is on
it drops to 500 sounds like it is about to die then kicks back up and
repeats the process?
TheDaltonboii: I have a 2000 explorer xlt and the driver door locks fine it just doesnt
want to unlock unless you pull the inside handle
TheBryansong65: my inside door handle broke after I installed the new actuator and I cant
open the door at all..i tried to pull the rod but its not opening the door
Omar Pedraza: My door ajar light is on come to find out my passenger back door got a bad
door jamb sensor because it isnt making a peep when choosing and opening
like the other doors how in the world do i change that in that little space
i got to work with.
Fist Fury: I have a 2000 eddie bauer explorer. The drivers door wont lock all others
do by remote or manually. I can hear the drivers lock clicking but it will
not lock. What can be the problem. Thanks
A Muhammad: My driver side power locks will only lock the doors. It will not unlock the
doors. The same goes for the keyless remote. The door keypad will unlock
the door and so will the key. And I can lock and unlock using the power
locks on the passenger side. I'm not sure if it's a switch, an actuator or
the drivers unlock relay. If it's not the actuator, do you have videos on
how to replace the switch or relay.
Nick VanTassel: 1998 ford windstar drivers door wont shut. The door just kind of hangs
there, I looked at the latch and it seems to be jammed, not sure how to fix
FlappingTerror: I`m not sure if this is the part I need to replace or what, but my door
won`t latch closed. I think the spring for the latch itself went out. I own
a 2007 Ford Taurus SEL. It has been terribly cold where I live -25 wind
chills. And I do not have a garage, nor do I know anyone who does so I`m a
bit stuck. Any ideas?
AndyWhip0312: I have a 2001 ford explorer sport and I think the actuator just went. I use
the keyless entry and I don't hear the locking mechanism on the driver side
door like I do on the passenger side. Its pretty loud so not hearing it go
off and unlock the door isn't normal. Do you think this is the actuator? If
so, will it be similar enough to fix as in this video?
1A Auto Parts: @cotaman7 Yes it'll make a noise. If the actuator looks like it's trying to
pop the locks open but doesn't, then you may need a new door lock actuator.
We carry them for most vehicles on our website 1aauto.com.
bgr547: i have a problem. the door locks and unlocks using the buttons in the car.
but most of the time i try to use the key, or the keypad on the outside of
the car, the driverside door half-way unlocks. the door wont open, and the
interior buttons won't unlock it then either. i have to go to another door
and open the door by the handle from the inside
derek7887: I just bought a replacement actuator. There are multiple copper/gold hooks
that came with it. Am I just supposed to use the one like you used with
both O rings and all the other ones are useless?
Ryan Kelly: Installed the new actuator and snapped off the safety light fixture that
connects to the hinge, not a big deal, nice being able to work on the car
with the front door opened, not worrying about the battery, after
installing the actuator, it didnt work, after two days of removing and
reinstalling, I unscrewed the lock piece that screws to the rode lock, once
that was off it worked, when i put it back on it didnt, i cut the piece in
half, the lock pin screwed up higher and did not jam,
Erin Smith: I'm not sure what is wrong with my door because in a sense, it "half
locks." I have a 97 ford explorer xlt & the door will not open whatsoever.
I have the panel off even though it is shut, and I've tried pulling the
"bar" that opens/unlatches the door from the locking mechanism and it still
continues to stay shut. What would you recommend to do to get it open?
Ellis Abram: My problem is the door locks won't go up or down with my remote and the
driver's side doesn't turn with the key. The locks unlock from the inside,
but I have to get into my Explorer Sport by unlocking the passenger side
with the key and opening the driver's side from inside.
Steven Lane: Mine is doing this same thing too on my 1998.
Tony Desercey: Could I use this if my sports trac's driver door lock and window controls
work on every door except the drivers'? Does that sound like an actuator

Bruce Campbell: I couldn't really hear the audio during the part of the video where you
were replacing the rivet you had drilled out with a bolt, but did the
replacement actuator come with that replacement bolt or did you have to buy
Steve Claussen: if my door makes the sound like its locking and unlocking but it doesn't
unlock the driver door nor the passenger door but unlocks the gate in back,
would that mean the actuators are bad on the doors.??
1A Auto Parts: You should match up the one that best fits your application. 1aauto.com
Steve Cottone: These videos are why I will purchase my parts through you. Please continue
to do these videos and save us from the stealerships. Great work guys! We
really appreciate you.
1A Auto Parts: You may want to see if there's power going to the door lock actuator, also
check the fuses to see if there's a blown fuse.
T3Walker: I own a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport, My driver door will not unlock with
remote unlock, nor the unlock button. I have to climb through and pull the
inside handle to unlock the door, when i attempt to use the button, or key
fob, the plunger just bobbles up and down. Is this what I need to replace?
1A Auto Parts: @strickmans Usually they will just stop popping up when you try to unlock
the door. Typically when they go bad you can hear them trying to pop up,
but nothing happens.
ibemobbinlkeee: thank u! now i know whats wrong with my truck!!!
1A Auto Parts: The latch may be stuck, or there could be a latching rod that may have
become disconnected inside of the door, that would cause it not to open.
You may have to try to remove the door panel with the door closed, so that
you can reach inside the door and pop it open by hand. Hope this helps you
out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3383
Oh Yeah: Thanks!
1A Auto Parts: Usually, when they do this and the actuators try to pop but don't, they
have gone bad.
Joseph Hagood: This is all good and well. but i didn't see it work with the remote door
lock...my switch makes no noise when i try to lock/un lock the door
Manually or with the remote ???
bgwillz668: can you make same vid but for 96 suburban please vids are big help ive
replaced my grille,headlights,taillights using ur vids mahalo from the 808
Billbent3: Outstanding video . including the still pix and narrative. You made it so
easy,. Thanks bunches. Bill
Mike Giammarino: Thank you for your video's, they helped me with a power window issue on my
98 Explorer Sport...Another issue I am having is the power locks won't
work. The fuse is good, the driver side or passenger switch will not work.
I don't have a fob to try.
1A Auto Parts: It could be a door lock actuator getting weak. Try to lock it using the key
and see if it locks. We carry new door lock actuators on our website
David Harris: I am having a problem with my explorer, both actuators are good, but the
rivet on the passenger side is rotted out. What size bolt is this?
agonz91: So I hope someone can give some what of an answer... but I have a 98 ford
explorer and I'm not sure if my passenger door actuator needs to be
replaced or what? anyways.. My door won't open for anything! Not the remote
lock, key, unlock button on the door panel, and I can't even pull up the
lock from inside. idk how I'm going to even open my door... I'm assuming a
slim jim will work, but I want know what is wrong with my door and how am I
going to even open it? any advice would be helpful!
1A Auto Parts: The issue could be with the switch itself. Those vehicles are known for
having poor switches on them.
alosgm1: Hello :) When I use the driver door to lock my doors, it appears to work
fine (all four doors close) but some seconds after, they all open again xD
If I try to close again, only the driver door gets closed. The same occurs
with the passenger door. Sometimes it work normally for some weeks and
suddenly starts failing again. Could it be the actuator? Thanks!
RonBronson: I am replacing a worn Door Latch Assembly... so I will need to remove the
actuator, too, as shown in the video?
