Hey,
My 2000 LX taurus came with no power door locks and the motors from the dealer cost about 15 bucks a piece, plus labor and all. I found on ebay 4 door lock motors. Here is the link:

I am also planning on getting a REMOTE START CAR ALARM COMBO W/KEYLESS ENTRY from ebay that should have inputs for these motors.?

I was wondering if anyone knows if these motors will fit and work with my taurus? Has anyone bought universal ones like these and installed them in their taurus or am i the only one with NO power door locks
Any advice is welcome.. Thanks

I thought all Taurii came with power doors and windows.. So you got a crank style window control? Any pics? I never seen newer a new Taurus like that.

I've seen the models w/o cruise, but I find it weird that the car has p/w and power mirrors, but not power locks.

You probably have a 50/50 chance of having the power locks wiring already in the doors since no power door locks on these cars are pretty rare.

Yeah, But my question is will non-ford door lock motors work with the taurus. I've read that if you buy universal ones, you then need an alarm/ keyless entry system to make them work..

The only place that I know of that you can purchase power locks aftermarket is J.C. Whitney, but I can't tell you how good they are. I know some of the Festiva guys got it to work but I don't know how well.

The other idea is to go to a junk yard and buy the correct motors. They should be pretty cheap. Check Car-Part.com and find a yard that has them close by.
