I have this same problem just on my passenger side, normally I close the door a few times then open it from the inside. I thought my problem was the truck was in an accident prior to me buying it, or because everyone slams the damn door.

Only thing I can think to do is get the panel off somehow and see what is going on. You may have to take the back seat out to get to it

That happens on my driver's side door. I just push it in hard then try the handle again. I threw some PB blaster on the latches and it seems to have fixed it.

Not sure if it's how it works on the 250, but a friend of mine had the same problem on his supercab ranger and the problem was that there are 2 small springloaded cables with something like a ball or kind of a gavel on the end, that fit into holes on the rear side of the handle itself which is how it moves the latch to open the door. Hope this helps. Guess I could go check on mine to see if that's how the handle works on the F250 Supercab.... Uh brb.

WTF!!! i dont have a manual and i have not been able to find a pic of the latch to see how it works exactly! any one have a pick of the latch itself? i have been surfing and found nothing. thanks again!!

well you dont have the full 4 doors do you? if u dont i doubt you'll see one but if you do its right on the side of the door its a little block switch you can push up or down for the child lock to be on.
