Have a 1994 f150 xlt with frozen lock acuator on drivers door its locked.
how can I open this door, the acuator is braded to the bottom corner of the door, is there a way to open this with out ruining my door panel ?
You could try pulling up on the manual post with pliers while turning the key on the outside. If that doesn't work, you'll have to pull the door panel. It's gonna be tricky, may have to pull the dash (very tedious!), may have to just rip it out (door panel). You could pull the seat and cut your way into the door, but then you'll have to weld it back.
Hi,, have new problem now tho,, when it opened the acuator broke, and I dont have door keys ( only have the remote for power locks, now how do I remove the old door lock cylinders to replace with new ones. any help will be appreciated
If you have the door open you will see a metal tang that holds the cylinder in from the outer edge of the door. Use a screw driver to pry it out and then maybe a channel lock pliers to pull it the rest of the way. Then there is a clip that holds the rod on that connects to the door lock itself. You have to unlock that clip and pull the cylinder out and turn it so the rod comes out. I didn't have any door keys for my truck when I bought it. I removed the cylinders and put the ignition key in it. Then very carefully ground down the tabs (tumblers) that were sticking up with a small carbite 1/8 bit till it turned smoothly. But you could have a lock smith make you a key or replace with new cylinders. I just like the price the way I did it. Free.
I had a problem with hooking a trailer, When I plugged in lights for a trailer I lost
my cruise and abs light came on,, found blown fuse in power distribution box on lt fender under hood for cruise and abs, so I replaced the after market connector to

blown fuses, any one have any ideas? any help will be highly appreciated, thnx.
