The temperature sending unit on a 97 F150 4.2 is Êlocated in front of the intake manifold. It is on the right hand side.

More than likely it is either the solonoid (the motor that moves the latch, or the wiring to the solonoid. First remove the door panels till you can get to the solonoid, then use a multimeter to test the voltage on the solonoid wiring. If the voltage is good, replace the solonoid, if there is no voltage, you might have a broken wire or short in the wiring in that area. (I am about to replace a solonoid on my 97 Laredo, back passenger door.) Hope this helps. Buy the "Haynes Repair Manual" for the Jeep. Shows you how to completely tear apart your Jeep!
