Experiencing a condition here on the keyless entry system on a 99 Ranger. The driver door doesn't react to the keypress of the keyless remote. The passenger door reacts consistently. The driver door reacts maybe 25% of the time. This occurs for both the lock and unlock operations.

Any thoughts out there on what might be the issue, or steps on how to solve this problem?

Hey there Foobard,

It is all to possible that the driver's door keypad itself is starting to go. These keypads operate in a nature similar to that of a telephone or a remote keypad and often the contacts need to be cleaned.

You could start by removing the keypad and cleaning the contacts (as there could be a build up of crud or corrosion), to see if that helps correct your issue - if not you may need to replace it.

Hope this helps.
