2001 F150 power door lock actuator

Asked by Mar 11, 2015 at 05:20 PM about the 2001 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

During warm weather only, my interior and box lights will stay on for several minutes after I have opened/closed the driver’s door. Even when driving. This has been remedied in the past with a new power door lock actuator. This will be my fourth one should I decide to replace it. What will happen if I just cut the wires in the door to the interior and box lights? Can I still use the key fob to unlock the door? Can I still use the light switch on the dash to illuminate the interior and box lights? Will I have any other issues if I cut those wires? I am tired of replacing the actuator. Truck is getting old so I really want to avoid putting any more money in it. Thanks for the advice.

you can cut them, you just won't be able to use them later. I wont recommend to you to do it.

Yeah probably not a good idea. Truck is getting old. Just used for a little fishing, little hunting, little hauling. Would rather not put ANOTHER actuator in. So the question still is, will I still be able to manually do those functions? Unlock the door, turn on interior and box lights?

for the door yes, you just need the keys, if there are any back door and the lock is not in the outside then you got an issue
