Door Lock Issues

I've been trying to figure this out for too long. My '04 screw door locks are screwy.

I can lock all doors but only unlock the drivers door with the remote.

I can lock and unlock all doors with the keypad and passenger door switch.

I can lock all doors but unlock none with the driver door switch.

I swapped switches from the passenger to driver door but it had no effect. I pulled the bsm fuse for 30 seconds which also had no effect.

When I press the unlock button twice on the remote I can hear a relay click under the drivers side dash.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Check the wires in the wire grommet going from the body to the door? Tried jiggling them?

For whatever reason the remote will no longer unlock any doors but the keypad and passenger door switch still function normally.

Does the truck just have the factory remote or has it had an aftermarket remote start or anything installed and you're using a non-Ford remote?

I can't say for sure if it's the factory remote because I'm not the original owner but I think it is..... Here's a picture

It has a remote starter installed

That looks like a factory remote but the lock, unlock, panic and start buttons are missing or rubbed off over time.

That remote has to have a battery in it, if you open it up it will likely tell you in there somewhere what make it is.

You're right the buttons wore off but they all still function as does the battery

I know the truck is receiving the unlock signal because the security system is being deactivated. Also the lock function works from the remote.

So I don't know what was going on yesterday but that problem no longer exists.

I still have the original issue though. I found a broken wire which seems to be coming from the antenna down the pillar. It's got two wires in it. I can't seem to find any information about where it's supposed to go.

I found the remote starter box (not sure what it's called but there are a couple wire harnesses plugged into it) under the drivers side dash but I don't see where the broken wires should fit.... I can confirm it's the factory setup though based on the Ford logo on the box.

Any help is appreciated!

That is the factory remote. If this has worked this way since you have had the truck it is
probably the way the "brain" for the remote was programmed. i have the original files for install but they are a pain to read to figure out because of the different kits. They are Adobe files I picked up off one of the other sites.

Such is life. Just passing through.
