    Have you had a lot of rain as of late ? Do you have the Ford RKE ( remote keyless entry ) ? Does the dome light work from the dimmer panel dial, rotated all the way up ?

Hi, this might be caused by a blown fuse. Check all fuses as there are some systems integrated with others running from the same fuse. If all the fuses are fine you will need to look at the earth connections and power supplies to the systems.

Power door locks do not work unless the ignition switch is on, radio and dome lights also do not work.


look for another fuse box in or under dash. still sounds like you have a blown fuse. look in owners manual for all fuse box locations,including underhood electrial center. good luck.

Power winidows, wipers, dome lights not working on 1998 explorer


This could be a combination of electrical issues, although i feel that the timing is coincidence in this case. When the combination is elec. windows, wipers, and dome lights this is indicative of the GEM module located behind your radio. The GEM (generic electronic module) is an electronic body control module that regulates electrical flow through a number of accessories.

These factory module boards are notorious for acting quirky by failing to ground intermittently until failing completely. I would be cautious in replacing ignition switches, locks, etc. as the issue can be also compounded by corrosion of the main battery ground wire in the engine compartment and which can cause frying of your under dash wiring into the main wiring harness which can get expensive (i speak from experience having had the exact same syptoms). My issues were that these symptoms occurred only in full ON. When in key BACK ACC mode, they disappeared.

New price for one of these modules is around $280-$300 and easily replaced.

Good Luck

Windshield wipers don't work


The Generic electronic Module controls the windshield wipers, this system controls all the electrical items like windows door ajar warning and so on. You need to have the GEM quick tested to determine the area to look for the fault, it is very rare for the GEM to fail, the most ccommon cause is the W/S wiper switch, and next the motor's internal contacts that switch it on, or the motor itself, get the Generic Electronic Module (GEM) tested with a scanner and then get back to me with the fault codes, if I was to guess a part it would be the wiper switch it is fairly expensive so it's better to test first then replace parts after pin-point tests of components and wiring are complete and you can be sure with little room for error what is causing the problem.
