Customer Question

Gidday, I've got a 95 ef falcon wagon which also has a problem with the central locking.
It only seems to affect rear passenger doors. The drivers, front passenger and boot work fine.
the prob arose about a year ago when left rear passenger door started to lock slower than other doors then over a couple months stopped responding completely. same thing happened to right rear door a few months later. Now when you lock car with key from drivers, front passenger, boot there is no response from rear passenger doors, not even a whurr.
I've removed both actuators and put 12v into them and they work fine. the actual lock mechanisms look clean and operate ok. I swapped both actuators with new ones anyway and nothing happens, still seem to be getting 12v to both actuator plugs. cant find any obvious gap in wiring. sprayed a ton of wd40 everywhere, put a new bcm in. Any ideas?

Hi Jack,

I would replace the door harness (from the lock to the B pillar).

Check the pins for water entry corrosion.

Do u mean replace door harness on both rear doors or on the drivers door harness?
Expert:  Gary replied 7 months ago.

Hi Jack,

The rear door harnesses, one per side.

Try one first to see the difference.


Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Forgive my ignorance but is it the section from actuator to plug or the section from the plug through door into body and further?
Expert:  Gary replied 7 months ago.

Hi Jack,

It is generally the section from the door to the B pillar.
