2000 Ford Windstar power door locks 2000 Windstar SLS


Electrical problem
2000 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 136, 00 miles

my power door locks work fine with interior controls but will not work with my key less entry remote I've replaced the battery in the remote and re programed the remote using owners manual step by step instructions with out success. I'm aware there is an anti theft/central locking module but do not know where it is located in the van. The remote is working fine I even dismantled it and cleaned it with electronic contact cleaner. My feeling is that the locks are not receiving the open and lock command from the remote or are you aware of another possible reason to my problem. Thanks for your time to my question.

NOTE: All transmitters must be programmed at same time. Verify that anti-theft system is not armed or triggered before programming transmitters. Up to 4 transmitters can be programmed into system.
1. Cycle ignition switch from LOCK to RUN position 8 times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN position. All doors should lock and unlock, indicating Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) module has successfully entered into programming mode. 2. Press any button of a remote transmitter, doors should lock and unlock. If doors lock and unlock, transmitter is programmed. Confirm each transmitter is programmed, go to next step. If doors locks do not respond to a transmitter, wait several seconds (less than 20 seconds) and press
transmitter button again. If door locks respond, transmitter is now programmed. If door locks do not operate, repair by symptom. See SYMPTOM INDEX table in SYSTEMS TESTS. 3. After all remote transmitters have successfully been programmed, turn ignition switch to LOCK position, or wait 20 seconds to exit programming mode. If remote transmitters were programmed during this procedure, all doors will lock and unlock one last time to confirm.
