Question about 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
I would recheck the battery connections to make sure they are shiny and new looking before hooking them back up to the battery.
This is a common problem for not getting any function.
I would double check that the fuses in both the 'battery junction box' and the 'central junction box' are checked out with a fuse tester.
If that's still not the problem, then I would check for broken wires under the hood or under the dash.
Chassis Electrical Wire & Connector Repair Almost anyone can replace damaged wires, as long as the proper tools and parts are available. Wire and terminals are available to fit almost any need. Even the specialized weatherproof, molded and hard shell connectors are now available from aftermarket suppliers.
Be sure the ends of all the wires are fitted with the proper terminal hardware and connectors. Wrapping a wire around a stud is never a permanent solution and will only cause trouble later. Replace wires one at a time to avoid confusion. Always route wires exactly in the same position as from the factory.
NOTE: If connector repair is necessary, only attempt it if you have the proper tools. Weatherproof and hard shell connectors require special tools to release the pins inside the connector. Attempting to repair these connectors with conventional hand tools will damage them.
Fuse locations and Applications
Good luck on this repair.

The BCM or body control module control all of the things you mentioned. The fuse for it should be under the hood. On the driver side. You should have a fuse labeled BCM./ Make sure that it is good. Hopefully you didn't burn the BCM up. I have never heard of burning it up by changing the battery unless you hooked the cables up wrong.

Hi! You may have a faulty PCM (powertrain control module). The PCM has connectivity on all electrical current that runs inside the car including the engine, transmission, accessories, etc. Have a PCM replacement and you'll be good. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
