UK Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi im kevin so does key not work manually or on remote ? Do doors lock by pressing lever inside van?
ok it certainly sounds like you need new barrel on drivers door,did locks work when pressing lever inside before break in
So just to be clear you can't open drivers door at all or the other doors don't open from drivers door
Hi, hopefully i can be of assistance.
This sounds like you have 2 faults here.
First is that the fuse will of blown for the central locking system. This is located under the steering column. replace this and carry out a basic test by pressing the interior door handle inwards on the drivers door. Its likely the fuse has blown due to damage caused by the break in.
If the key is turning in the barrel yet the door isnt locking then this means that the barrel is disconnected from the lever arm which turns the lock/latch. This again, could of happened during the break in.
The way these Ford Barrels are designed means the burglars essentially just ram a large screw driver into the barrel to turn the lock. This damages the internals of the barrel, making you key useless.
Or the barrel was turned so aggressively during the break in that the rod connecting the barrel to the lock has snapped or become disconnected.
What you need to do now is have the door card removed and the door lock/latch assembly inspected to see what the damage is and repair as necassary.
