Found a bar inside the door that needs to be in the up position. Found some posts on various forums where people used springs to fix the problems. Other paid hundreds of dollars to fix. I bought a spring at Ace hardware for a $2 fix.

98 Ford Explorer Door Won't Open Part 1
Just showing the problem I was having with my '98 Ford Explorer. A couple
weeks ago the door handle just stopped working on the driver door. All
tension was lost in the handle. I couldn't use the remote to open. The
remote would open all other doors. Sounded as if it wanted to open but
just couldn't. I wasn't able to open from the inside either. I had to
flip the door lock back and forth while pulling on the door lock pull and
finally lucked out. I got the door open and pulled the panel off using a
screw driver. Later I found you could get a door pull at Autozone for
$9.99 probably would have been a lot easier.
ford superduty rear door wont open part 2 of 3
This is a 99 ford superduty with the suicide doors. Should be the same up
to 2004. The cable ends break easy. The top cable broke in both doors
within a week of each other. Each one cost about $180. That is $720 to
fix all the cables. I fixed each one for about $5 each. This video is
only for the upper cable. If you like this, go to bradleyusa.com and
donate a few dollars. Thanks.

Ford Explorer Remote Not Locking Fix
In this Video I show how to fix a fairly common problem with the Ford
Explorer. If you Remote/Key fob unlocks your truck, but does not lock the
truck, this is most likely the problem. The splice from the factory get
moisture in it, and it corrodes. This is a fairly simple fix. I would like
to Thank the guys over at http://www.explorerforum.com with the threads
explaining the problem. Hope this helps some people out. I know a lot of
times a video helps out a lot more then pictures, and diagrams.
