I had the same problem in my wife's 2003 Yukon Denali. The power seats and passengers side window wouldn't work. Turned out to be a blown Buss Type fuse in the Underhood Fuse Block. It is the one marked MBEC 1 50amp. Hard to tell if the are blown so look very carefully. Should look like a hoop with two shiny solderlooking bubbles on either side. On my blown fuse, it caught my attention because it looked like the solder was missing and I had to look very closely to see the bottom of the "hoop" was open. They are very hard to remove and must be pulled straight up.
This type of fuse looks like a red square with a clear plastic top showing the fuse link under the plastic. On my vehicle it is on the top row second one from the left.

I had the same problem with my T5 130. My mechanic replaced the head gasket to no avail,then we checked the oil filter,that was ok.then we went on to a web forum and found out that the AXD engine suffers from water pump failure.We took it off and it was corroded,the seal had failed and was pumping water into the block.My advice,CHECK WATER PUMP FIRST! Good luck Marc,Somerset.

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer - Drivers side door lock, rear

Aside from the fuses, your drive side power door lock may be failing to work because of a bad door-lock relay system, or, alternatively, the locking switch/button, itself, is not malfunctioning and in need of replacement.

A great handyman site that specifies the above probable causes and more is the following link:

Good luck!

Heated mirrors not working

Hi. If it is a late model VW then you need to pul the mirror out. It is held in by clips, use a large flat plastic lever to pull out. Be careful as they break easily. Test the leads of the heater element with a bulb type test light. If it lights then replace the mirror glass, if not then it is more likely the switch. If only one works, then check the wiring harness at the rubber boot between the door and A pillar for broken wires. Also check that the outside temp sender is working, as in warmer climates the heater circuit switches off above 9 degree Celcius.
Kind regards, Neil

Heated Mirror on Passenger Side needs to be replaced. Mirror Part #91039AG02A. All mechanical features work, mirror is just cracked. How to install?

There should be a plug for the heater element. I think a new replacement comes with it, I am unsure. But just remove the old glass by using a screwdriver, wrapped in tape if you want, to pry it from the clips. The clips will release it, then unplug the heater element wire that is in the mirror. Plug the new mirror heater element, install mirror, it snaps into place, just give it a little pressure to make sure it is seated in the clips correctly.

1997 f150 drivers mirror doesnt work passenger moves in and out but not up and down

If you can hear a humming from the driver's mirror the motor in it is probably bad. The passenger's mirror is on it's way out. Inside of the mirror the motor has the pivoting actuator that controls it. Depending on where you live they can get corroded and/or dirty. They're not entirely shielded from the elements as moisture and debris can get in through the edges. The fact that the passenger's mirror is still trying to work indicates to me that the driver's mirror has already passed that stage and it's not an unapparent electrical problem. Time vs. hassle and money. The simplest solution would probably be to change the mirrors. Maybe not the cheapest. But the easiest.
