All these systems are controlled by the GEM, that is the Generic Electronic Module, have Kragen run a quick test and see if the system has codes, but most likely the Module is defective, it is located on top of the fuse panel to the left of the steering column. I have 30 years as a Ford tech so I am pretty darn sure of this diagnose.

I have a 1998 ford expedition that had they passenger door panel taken off and disconnected and since then power windows radio interior lights rear windsheild wiper has stopped working

The first thing I would suggest it to check all your fuses, This sounds to me as a blown fuse as all these items you are mentioning are on the same circuit.

Windsheild washer and wipers wont go off.

I assume you mean the harness for the switch, because if the wiring harness for the motor is unplugged it should not have a way to get power.
There is a wiper relay and a front electronic module, either one could be faulty and causing the motor to have power with the switch off.

This sound like some type of relay switch failure in the fuse box, you need check all the fuses and see if they're all intact and make sure none of them are burned out. If all these are not working you have a live wire some where in you wire harness

2002 ford windstar lx Rear intermittent wiper not working...i checked the fuse and it was blown...we replaced it now the rear windsheild washer is working but the wiper is still not working... also the...

Check to be sure there is not a seperate fuse for the wiper. Check power and ground at the motor. if you have power and ground replace the motor. if you don't, check for a break in the wires where the harness bends at the tailgate. take the interior door trim apart to unlock and open then inspect the inside of the door and all components. i can't really help with seeing it. the econolines have issues with the lock cylinders.
