Hi Kevin, I am having the exact same problem. It did it all the way to work this morning on a 40 minute drive. I stopped and checked all the doors and the rear hatch. On the way home, nothing...no problems. Let me ask you if you have a crack panel right below your rear window? Next to the Ford emblem? I am thinking maybe it is getting moisture in there at night and causing a short? I know it is a stretch but I am trying to figure out why it does it in the morning and not on the way home. I usually park outside....I am putting it in the garage tonight and will see if there are problems on the morning drive. I have a 2002 Ford Explorer, Eddie Bauer edition, 4X4.

I kept my SUV in the garage last night and had no problems. So, this is ongoing and it could be more than just moisture shorting it out. My wife has a 2002 Ford Explorer also and has had this same problem. She said she stopped the car in a safe place and shut if off and re-started it and had no further problems. My guess is the sensor probably just needs to be re-placed. We have both had the rear air fan problem....2x each...should be a recall item. Also have both had problems with the rear window body panel that cracked top to bottom (right underneath the window).

My SUV is still doing the same thing with the sensor and door lock and alarm going off for no reason...not a fun ride. I will call my mechanic and try to remember to post the results.....

I will keep posting for someone else searching for the answer...I went on some other websites and found some people had success with spraying silicone spray into the working parts of the door jamb (where it latches)....so, will try that tonight as the chime was going off for my morning 40 minute commute....can't turn the music loud enough to drowned out that annoying sound. I will post results...

#172 of 269 dome light/wipers/windows periodocially stop working
Jun 24, 2010 (6:04 pm)
I have a 1996 XLT. One day I was driving and it started to rain. Windows wouldn't roll up and wipers wouldn't work. Eventually they started but the dome light doesnt work when the other two stop. I was told to check the wires that run through the driver's side door for a broken wires because it doesn't always do it. Any suggestions or tell me if its gonna be a huge pain doin this...

My windows stopped working to. Turn the power on, hold the front passenger window switch in the down position, and wiggle the rubber hose in the crack of the door. If this works there is a red wire that has broken in there and needs an extra 6 inches spliced on.
