In this video I have a look at a 2007 Lincoln Town car that came in and told me the driver door lock doesn't work any more and the alarm goes off when she opens it. Easy fix. -Enjoy!

    Still listen to Dre. Fantastic video. Love the humor, and the fact you don't take yourself too seriously. Subscribed.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kax Byrita says:

    I vehemently loathe working on cars outside on a yard or on a parking lot. I mean sometimes you have to do it. No other option. But it still sucks every time. At least you had nice weather which is nice.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SB says:

    Ya did a great job teaching the repair. Thanks for being aware of the camera position, close-ups, etc. Really helps. Also mentioning the parts & where to buy. Good Job.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bsdguy says:

    Thanks, that did it for me. Door lock now working again.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stephen persic says:

    I found this video riveting

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Kosyjana says:

    I'm so glad I have you to watch to fix this problem and not someone else. =]…So all i need is a rivit. nice

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Boisclair says:

    Do you have a video on how to diagnose if it's the door sensor on the watch causing the door a Dr ajar the come on and your locks go up-and-down while you're going down the street

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Witiak says:

    What did you charge $

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Willa Yeager says:

    Great video I have the same problem

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J.whiteye says:

    very curious how much that job cost ??? … that will be 700 plz hahahha .. jk btw … I have 06 grand marquis. waiting for a air bag suspension kit conversion video to regular springs

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ivan Etherton says:

    That’s one of the best video I’ve seen to detail ! Great job👍👍

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth Franklin says:

    "Ironically the hole is pink…let me show you in case you've never seen one." Your videos are full of these and much more subtle jokes. Were you in the military at some point?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars surya cipta78 says:

    incredible improvement

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marco Moreno says:

    My 2003 Town Car. The problem started with erratic door locks, interior lights and, the car alarm not working as well as no keyless working. Then later: 
    While driving the open door warning light comes on with an accompanying beep. At times I get the beep without the light; it is a brief signal that sometimes repeats over and over. At times I can hear the locks shift, like when I start driving but forget to lock the door. At times the inside light would come on like I had opened the door. This is an intermittent problem and it won’t stop. What would be your diagnosis?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jesus Esperanza says:

    I changed my fuel pump, my fuel filter, fuel regulator box under right side tire, red fuel button in trunk, changed crank sensor, basically changed everything that has to do with the fuel, and carb reves up but then sputters out like there is no gas pressure. What could this problem be? It's driving me crazy.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jared Baranyk says:

    I had this happen on my 03 Grand Marquis, I used a nut and bolt to put it back on. Now I can just tighten the bolt if it happens again and no need to worry about a broken rivet

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maverick Xander says:

    lol building a house here folks 😂😂

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lorenzo De La Cruz says:

    Another great show. I came for the lesson and stayed for the jokes. Someone really finds fault with you? I worry that you will become so famous you will quit working.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug H. in VA says:

    pay a pro…. it's cheaper than doing it yourself…. many times

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Therealdeal Tech says:

    That rubber band comes from the factory, and the only way to install that lock actuator is to remove the door latch and installing them together

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ice44567 says:

    The Ford door lock actuators have a high failure rate, I bet someone was in here before but didn't install it quite right, so it fell off, lol. I replaced the front two on a Mercury Sable before, and it's a literal nightmare to swap because all of the latch stuff is behind the door skin and you can't see anything. And all the rods are held with ancient plastic clips designed by satan.

    Wiggle the tip around until you find out where you're at…….😎🤙🏼

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BustaNut says:

    Figured I'd leave a comment, question, criticism or concern… But I don't know what to leave…..

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DuskSolution33 says:

    Them 4.6 like to knock when cold for a second or two, sometimes mines does it.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mice InOz says:

    Service info=when all else fails, read the directions.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Astro's Electronics Lab says:

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Henon says:

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nilo Lee says:

    I hate those mechanics that don’t care about other people’s car, they just want your money ..I wish Eric’s shop is close to me but I’m like 150 miles away from where he at😓

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Carey says:

    safety glasses when snipping rivets please.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alec Rollins says:

    "The innuendo is strong in this one" lol. Keep it colorful big E.

    "Ironically enough the hole is pink…"
    This guy keeps'em comin'…

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lorne MacDonald says:

    Eric O, if you like a challenge, how do you open a door that doesn't unlock/lock and the door handle is unhooked/ broke on the inside. Its like its locked but cant open. The door lock post is jammed and will not go up or down…

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TA says:

    I always enjoy the humor mixed with the wrenchin'…brightens my time in the shop!

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sam Reven says:

    Im a 65 yr old street mechanic and I wanna tell you young man I wish you where in my s jersey area,you knowledge is impecable.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chuckschilling says:

    Torx fashioners are the work of Satan. There is no legitimate reason them except to torture anyone who needs to repair something.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PastBlast says:

    Yah! I don't know why one should expect to have a decent door pull by 2007 on a premium luxury vehicle. Planned obsolescence = revenue stream = consumer pocket picking!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger Yanez says:

    Wiggle the tip to find out where you are lmfao.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dave taulker says:

    Very common problem on the Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury's, I had a Grand Marquis and had to perform the exact same repair on both front doors

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AwakeDude911 says:

    why i can do it but id rather watch you do it …..

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Peterson says:

    Them lincoln's have as much wire as the space shuttle.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Peterson says:

    Why would we lose trust in you Eric,,? I'm pretty sure you would do a video on an honest plane, and if a mistake is made you've readily admitted it.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars OLD SCHOOL says:

    You do realize that it is not necessary to fill every space with talk.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Flores says:

    "Let me just feel it"

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars knights0076 says:

    Good job. I own 2007 Lincoln Town car. These cars are made to last for years. I currently have 401000 miles on it. Still strong and running wild on the roads. I will probably buy the last year production model 2011 next year. Low mileage hopefully can get black on black.
