check the coolant level fiirst...if that is low it wont give you any heat.....to change the thermostat you have to follow the top radiator hose to the engine.at the send of it you will see a clamp take it loose...then you will see the thermostat housing its held in place by 2 bolts . once you remove them you have the thermostat....make sure you clean all the old gasket material off both the housing and mount.also make sure you get a new gasket.

For the sliding doors you need to clean the contacts, there are 6 or 8 on both sides, just wipe them clean as they are probably covered in oil/grease/grime.

I went to bulldogsecurity.com and looked up the wiring diagram for this vehcle. However, prior to checking this part, I would check to see if you have a blown fuse. It doesn't hurt and only takes a few minutes. There should be a fuse for that either somewhere on the side of the dash or near the brake pedal area. If not it may be under the hood, but it should be inside the vehicle. You may have multiple fuse boxes. If it has (2) sliding doors it will have a wire for the auto doors in each kick panel (under the plastic trim/molding) when you open the door and look down you will see all of the trim/molding it should snap out or may be held in place with a screw or (2). Once you remove that you should see the wires. It says for the left side it is either light blue or black and the right side is definitely light blue. Trace this wire until you find out where it ends (the motor or switch to control the auto doors) Then test the switch/motor to see if it is bad.

On top of the window motor there is a timing cam -- there is a little tab on the bottom that is most likely broken or bent. You need to replace the cam.

I had a 99 with the same problem, and suggest you check under the passenger side front carpet. Remove the flat door kick plate, lift up the carpet on the front passenger side floor and you will see a large wiring harness running along the floor, wrapped in black tape. Water and salt gets into this harness and will rot out several wire splices that you will see. Look for wires that run from 2 wires down into one (under black tape.) These are spliced together, and rot out. There was several large gauge wires/splices(windows up and down) and I think 2 very thin wires/splices (lock/unlock) . Even if the wires look connected, give them a good tug, they will come apart and be green with corrosion. This is a very common problem and worth the effort to check out. Repairing these splices fixed both the power windows and locks at the same time. Good luck
