My Ford Expedition driver side door button for all doorswill not lock doors. I have to reach over to passenger side to lock doors. I can press the other individual button on driver side that will lock just driver door. What could be wrong. Thanks.

Chances are the switch is bad, as was mentioned. However, they are not cheap. I recommend removing the switch and checking it before replacing it. Most parts stores will stock the switch too. If they don't, they can usually get them within a day.

I took advice. I went to ebay, checked u pull yard, and online sites. All of them was too expensive with the exception of ebay to replace just door lock switch which is giving me trouble. So before a made my purchase I took "Jacobandnickolas" advice and took master switch apart. I clean out dust and used some electronic cleaning stray. So far so good, I got working. Maybe is just a short in wire or just needed some TLC. Thanks All.

Great! I'm glad that helped. If it gives you trouble again, check wiring to it to make sure there are no problems. They are expensive just to replace for no reason. Good Job!
