Try turning key left then right.

If it has cl then it should have deadlocks

Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

My GTI had it but not my Finesse doesn't still habe all the parts from the GTI but need to know what I need to swap over.  I bet it won't be something simple like swapping the controller module over.

Think the actual door lock motors are different plus the control module ... Maybe more.. :)

iirc (its been a few years now)


the absolute only difference between a door with deadlocking and one without on a escort all boiled down the the actually latch mechanism, some had the deadlocking feature built in while others didnt.


again irrc the door lock barrels were the same, the link rods were all the same and the way the rods connected to the latch were the same.


as for changing wiring and control module? well afaik the deadlocking feature is purely a mechanical feature and all contained within the latch unit itself.


so in basic terms, aslong as youve got door latches you know came off a car with deadlocking you can swap your own current latches out for them a tada you have deadlocking (its really that simple and easy to do too)

any monkey can buy and bolt on.... an individual creates
you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.

Great stuff.  I already stripped one of the doors down so I can have a go at that sometime soon.
