Question about 2000 Ford Explorer

2 Answers

Why do my interior lights flash when i open the driver door only and also my windows have stopped working as well?

Everything is centred around the driver door. the other doors do not make lights flash. also at one point if you unlock and lock the doors the windows would work ,now nothing.

Check if all of the windows (except the drivers window) work from the main switch, and from the window switches on each door. If the windows all work from the doors switches, you have a bad master (main) panel controlling the drivers door window. If the windows don't work from any switch, check for a fuse issue, or a pinched wire in the tube from the door hinge area to the door.

It sounds like the interior bulb came loose. The window problem sounds like a fuse blew.

Testimonial: "It all started with the interior light flashing when only the driver door was opened, no other door. Then the windows started getting screwy, then the window stopped working totally all driver door ,but the other widow buttons don't work either. Was told might be a body control module but, one can find one and two don't know its location."

1999 Corolla..........365,000 KM!!!!!!!!!!! Today all 4 power windows AND Power door lock stopped working. Of course its around freezing and 2 of the windows are slightly open!!! Nothing else seems to...


First I would check the fuses and relay. Second I would remove the interior door panel and check the connector pins on the motor to the window. Should that not work, you can disconnect the motor and force crank the window up. Although it sounds like a fuse/relay issue as they seem to be the only items not working. Let me know.

1999 honda odyssey.....just had the rear latch assembly replaced. I think it needs to be readjusted because it isn't making a tight close and the interior lights flash on and off. But now my 3 windows...


I don't believe the window issue is related to the door adjustment. But the interior lights flashing are> It would be the same instance if you were opening & closing your drivers door while driving. The rear door isn't closing tight enough to shut door jam switch.

Driver window switch not working


That buzzing sound was probably a short circuit in the switch panel. You will need to take the door card out and replace this panel. First check the fuses though. You may have blown a couple of extras because of the short. Did the door get wet on the inside somehow?

04JeepGrdCher:Interior lights stay on and power windows dont work


I had this same problem but no sunroof on mine. there is a bundle of wires that goes into the door and if the power wire breaks and the power window lockout was pushed when it happens no windows work and the dome lights stay on on mine it happened on the drivers side it was an easy fix i took the door panel off and unpluged the harnes and pulled it through the inside of the jeep and spliced the wire back together and it has been working since.

Drivers door power window control stopped working.power mirrors won,t work interior lights want come on when you open drivers door but the other three doors interior lights come and the power window...


Since it is only happening on the drivers side door to multiple switches and lights on that door only, I think the problem is the wiring harness as it enters the drivers door by the door hinges.

Sounds like a fuse issue. check your panel for popped accessory fuse.

the overhead light issue may be the door close switch

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Electrical issues.


the button that pushed in when you close the door could be bad its literally like a $10 part and plugs in and is only held in with one screw. My interior lights used to flash on and off and i replaced that and now good as new, but you would need to figure out which door is doing it by pushing the button in manually

96 taurus wagon interior lights and power windows


just a guess but Id look for a bad chasis ground. I say this cuz the interior light switch for the door is a normally- open - grounding. The test for this theory would be to run a jumper wire from the neg batt terminal to the body, or from the eng to the body/chasis.

Golf 1.4 99 ..central locking not working


Can you operate the central locking once inside the car? Does your interior light come on when you open the drivers side door? If those are both the case, then you may have a bad door microswitch. If your car can't detect your drivers side door being closed, the central locking will not operate from the keyfob. If the microswitch is bad, you may need to take it to a garage to have it serviced as the procedure is complicated. See this website for details:
