My 96 explorer has been acting a bit weird lately... started out with
the power locks only unlocking and not locking except for the rear
hatch. It would still power lock all the doors. Then the interior
light would not turn on with the opening of any door. These problems
are a nuisance but still manageable until I have more time to figure
them out! But last weekend my headlights would not shut off and then
this week my power locks would continuously keep unlocking almost as
if you were holding the button down.
Well I figured out the headlight problem it was caused by a poor
ground, but my powerlocks still have a problem if I try to manually
lock any door by pushing the lock "plunger" down it begins this
continuous unlock "loop". I have now figured out that I can stop this
by holding the power lock button on lock for ten seconds or so, but
essentially I can't lock my doors!!!
Does anybody have any ideas? I'm guessing some type of short in one
of my doors and I guess that's where I'll start this weekend, but any
suggestions would to narrow down my search would be greatly
Thanks in advance!
