I have a 1999 ford taurus 165000 miles and my only problem is with my locks. When the unlock button is pressed on the passenger side the driver side door unlocks but it is the olnly one that will, the others don't do anything at all.

Since the switch seems to work, check for broken wires in the rubber condiut that runs from the door into the car...Also check the relays, there are two under the dash, one is the drivers door, and the other is all...
