Hi traghip and thank you for your question, the door will not open from the inside or outside?, does the door lock move when it is actuated?

Reply to lostrider's Post: the door will not open from either inside or out. If the door is locked and I try to open it from the inside, the door will unlock. I can also here it lock and unlock when I used the remote. I've done some research awhile ago and thought I had a solution to the problem but I can't find the instructions now. However,I remember the instructions saying there was a problem with the doors jamming on these models when the door handle was pulled as the door was being unlocked. I can get the door panel off but as of yet, it's hard to see where this will help me. I hope you have a solution for me.
Here is a Ford Technical Service Bulletin for your concern, follow the instructions and it shouldn't be a problem, your gonna have to replace the latch assembly to prevent this from happening again. hope this helps.
