CC rear power door locks

I have a 97 XLT CCLB. When I got it I was aware of wiring harness damage where the harness goes from the body to the rear doors. this was causing issues with the power windows and, I thought, the power door locks. I went to repair that today and discovered that this truck doesn't power door locks (or at least the actuator was missing from the side that I pulled a door panel off of).

The lock knobs are chrome things with the bulb so you can grab them to manually unlock, and there is no lock/unlock switch in the door panel. I assumed that the prior owner had swapped in the chrome knobs when the power locks stopped working. It didn't occur to me until today that there were no switches...

Has anyone ever seen a crew cab with power locks up front but not in the back? Looked like the wiring was there, can I just get actuators and add the to the existing hardware, or are the latch mechanisms different?

Thanks for any light anyone can shed on this, I am confused.

there are no door lock switches in the back, only on the front.

That is interesting, even on trucks with power rear locks? Where the original lock knobs the smooth black ones? Seems like the rear passengers would be locked in if that were the case.

Yes. My 95 CC has power locks, and no it does not have any switches. The black "anti theft" knobs stick up enough to pull on to unlock. The fronts should sit level with the door panel, to prevent unlocking via the vent windows.


As long as the U shaped brackets are still there, replacement actuators aren't terribly expensive. However, if the bracket is broken or missing, you'll have to fab something up, as I've never seen them for sale anywhere. And Ive looked, ALOT.

Huh, this is my first crew cab, you learn something new every day! Thanks for the help. I guess I will pull the door panels again to see what parts I am missing. It would be really nice to have power locks all the way around, and it sounds like the lack of power locks in the back is a bit of a mystery still.

In the 94.5 and down they never had power rear locks it's a 95+ only, which is odd since you have a 97

My 94 had both power locks and power windows. None of them had power lock switches in the rear doors. You don't want the little munchkins in the rear playing with the locks for safety reasons. On mine, when an actuator went out, I used a factory unit I found on ebay for $10. It was for some other Ford vehicle, so all I did was swap the actuator rod off my old one. My bracket was still good but possibly other vehicles may use the same one? Cheers!

Good luck finding actuators(actually the rod on the actuator).
Last i check the actuator WITH the rod was about $300

The rod is Specific to these crew cab rear doors. But the actuator ford used forever in multiple vehicles

Fantastic news, I pulled the rear door panels again, and low and behold, the actuators were there, but were unplugged and mechanically disconnected from the latch assembly (I was looking in the wrong place, duh). I plugged them in, hooked them up to the latches, and boom, power door locks. My guess is that the locks were blowing a fuse when hooked up because of the wiring harness damage, so someone disconnected them. Can't think of any other reasons why someone would have done that...

Thanks for all your help guys!
