Did you get it fixed? I have same issues. Windows worked periodically then quit all together. Interior dome light doesn't work, 4X4 lights flash and will not work. ???

I highly suspect the Body Control Module. It's rare, but if they go bad, this kind of inexplicable stuff happens. What I recommend is a full reboot, which means disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then rehook. If it continues, you may want to pursue that course. It's hard to find, and quite expensive though - I had this problem in an 06, and sold the car. Got a much better 07. I believe the module is behind a plastic panel somewhere in the rear driver's side. Not positive on that.

Yesterday after I started my car and warmed it up, My radio, power windows,interior lights and moonroof stopped working. I checked all fuses and relays. They all seem to be fine. Any ideas out there?

See 232 above. I hope I'm wrong.

I figured out that it is the wiring harness thats causing my electrical issues. How did you get the boot and wires out? Do I have to remove the door?
#238 of 269 FORD EXPLORER START ISSUES
Jan 04, 2012 (6:41 am)
I HAVE A 1997 FORD EXPLORER AND JUST RECENTLY AM EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS STARTING IT. EVERY MORNING AND AFTER WORK I NEED A JUMP. IT STARTS RIGHT UP AS SOON AS CABLES ARE CONNECTED. WHILE RUNNING, EVERYTHING LOOKS LIKE ITS CHARGING. EVERYTHING WORKS FINE. COULD THIS BE THE BEGINNING SIGNS OF ALTERNATOR ISSUES? CONNECTIONS? NEW BATTERY WAS PUT IN THIS SUMMER! CAN ANYONE HELP ME TRY TO NARROW DOWN THE PROBLEM PLEASE?

Firstly, it could still be the battery, and that is where I would look. I had an identical situation on a 2003. Even a new battery can fail prematurely. And, if it's that new, should be covered.
Also, check your ALT gauge, if it shows normal charging, most likely your alternator is ok. IF not, that's where you should go first.
Lastly, it could be a ground connection, or even a loose terminal on the battery.
But, I'm betting on the battery.
#240 of 269 2002 Ford Explorer Sports Trac
Jan 21, 2012 (5:04 pm)
I purchased a 2002 Explorer Sports Trac which just happened to caught on fire last night. I searched for any recalls that may have been issued on this vehicle. Fortunately my son was able to get out of the truck in time. He was traveling on the freeway, when the truck all of the sudden died he coasted to the inside lane. When he tried to restart the truck smoke came out and flames shout out under the drivers door. He managed to get out and the next thing the entire truck caught on fire. Has anyone ever reported any cases such as this and what are my options at this point? I will still have to pay on the vehicle since I only financed for 18 mos and had liability. Who do I need to address on this issue. Of course purchased as is but in a situation like this what can I do. I'm out the money and out the vehicle.
