01 expy drivers door lock

Can anyone tell me where the door lock module is for a 2001 Expedition XLT, the doors all unlock but the drivers will only lock manually?

will the rest lock?
also what method are you attempting to lock the door??
door open? door closed? key fob? inside vehicle? outside vehicle key pad?


it is most likely in a kick panel.

I would take the door panel off and have a peek in side first, could be the lock rod is off the key cylinder, or the actuator is not working

I believe the module is under the dash by the brake pedal on the fire wall

sounds like it needs some lube.?
Do you know when it was last lubed?


Sounds like my wifes car.. the passenger door would lock, but not unlock. I shot some lube in the key hole.. under the handle into the mechanism. in the latch assembly.. . opened and closed the door couple times.. manually locked it and using the door handle latch I opened it inside couple times. to get the lube moved around.. that was over a year ago. haven't had a problem since.

I'm betting it's the actuator, especially if it's an 01. They fail eventually one by one. There is a resistor inside the motor that is encased in the actuator. You can take the actuator out, remove the motor, bypass the resistor and put it all back together. 100's of guys, including myself, have done this "foil mod" and it works like a charm. If you are adventurous and want this 'free' fix, let me know and I will post a link.

2001 F350 CC SWB 6spd....currently getting a complete 'makeover'. Stay tuned.

I have programmed my own in the past, to do so I put the key in the ignition, turned the ignition off/on 7 or 8 times, (do not start just off/on) the door locks should start popping up/down on their own, now press and hold the lock button on the remote, now your remote should be programmed, should you need your other remote programmed you will need to press both remotes at the same time when the locks are popping up/down
