SOURCE: power seats

Pull the carpet up right under the where your feet would set and look for corroded splices in the wiring harness, should be a splice with orange wires going to it. Repair the splice and check the ground splice and all should be okay.

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!

SOURCE: 1996 ford explorer windows, locks and seat fuse keeps blowing

Disconnect as many of the door switch wiring plugs, and wiring plugs for the seats that you can. Then, drop in a fuse. If it blows, you probably have a wiring issue, not a switch issue. If it doesn't blow immediately, reconnect the doors, and seats one at a time till the fuse does blow. Once it does, you've isolated your problem to a smaller area, and can replace / rewire that component.

If you've disconnected everything, and the fuse still blows, you probably have a wiring issue that will need to be traced. You will need a multimeter that can read ohms. You'll need to isolate different parts of the circuit (probably by unplugging and or cutting a wire in that circuit unfortunately) then use the multimeter to test the ohms from that part of the circuit to NON voltage side of the fuse holder. (If you try to test ohms on a hot circuit you will likely fry your multimeter!). If the meter reads low ohms, there is your short. High ohms (infinity) means there is no circuit, and there is no short. When you hit on something of low ohms, you've isolated the problem to a smaller area, and can keep tracing that wiring back to the fuse box to find your short.

Good Luck.

2001 ford expolror no power to seat

Check the connectors to the seat motor . They are usually a main attraction for corrosion. If corrosion not an issue use a voltmeter and check for B+ at this connection. If B+ is not here fabricate a set of jumper wires and jump them from battery to seat motor and see if motor works. Now jump them to seat switch.Whatever item the seat doesn't work by this jumping / bypassing procedure is your culprit. If after jumping the seats work, then go to the go to relay for B+, If not there go to fuse or power source ( use shop manual) keep me posted. Items of concern Connectors , motor, switch,relay, fuse. wiring in circuit.

The power seat has problems moving forward and backwards

If the motors try to move then the motors are probably ok if it does not move at all, test at the switch first,make sure the fuse is good ,then pull the switch out so you can test it.power goes through the switch. use a meter or test light to see the voltage moving through the switch when you change positions.
if power is going in and not out the switch is bad.If power comes out of the switch to the motors then something is wrong under the seat.something can be caught in the seat rail.
