2005 Ford Escape doors not always locking
I have a 2005 Ford Escape.
Sometimes when I lock the doors not all of them lock. This happens when I use the clicker
until the horn honks, and when I slide the key.
This happened just now with the driver rear door and earlier today with one of the
passenger side doors.
Sometimes the alarm goes off, sometimes it doesn't.
I can keep pressing the clicker and they all will lock, right now I'm checking every door.
Any ideas on the locks, and the alarm? I don't have a lot of experience working on cars
and some links or information would be cool.
I don't know what model I have - it's two wheel drive, but I don't know the model. If there's
a number I need to pull I can definitely do that.
By clicker do you mean the key fob? If so I suspect a bad battery in the fob. When the batteries start to get low in key fobs all sorts of weird things can happen. I would replace the battery in the key fob.
Thanks I'll start there.
Do you mean something else you said key fob but also change batter in key fob...assuming typo.
Sorry I ment change battery in key fob
I'll change it. I'll tell you man I've been working for a utility company and for a day there I accidentally put the key FOB in the water to unlock a valve. So I was amazed it worked. I'll change that today and then later I'll post an update.
Since it got wet you might try leaving the fob open and placing it in a Zip lock of rice. This will help to draw the moisture out of it.
That did it. I changed the battery in the FOB. There was some wetness I wiped down and took pictures in case it didn't work but it works like a charm now. Thank.
So glad we could help. Drive safe.
