My 2000 Explorer XLS is leaking from the thermostat housing. My door locks switches and window switches don't work and now my air conditioning is not working either. Is there a connection?
The thermostat housing leak, is an O-ring or gasket,that needs to be replaced,
& install a new stat while your in there. Every 8 years, is a good amount of time,
to avoid heating issues involving the T-stat
Since winter is close ,I would work on the window and door locks.
If your talking all of them are dead,then you look for a common problem
You need a wiring diagram to answer that
They may be on the same fuse,but remember fuses do not fix things,
they complete a good circuit and protect it from an overload,or most peoples
favorite,a short circuit.
One defective window motor, could blow a fuse and shut down several items,
as you discribed. Also your vehicle and all ford trucks have bad window regulator
cables,they jam the window,you try and use it,fuse goes,motor okey
The A/C System is just that. Many items that have to be diagnosed
Does the blower work on all speeds?
Does the compressor clutch come on?
Does it stay on or cycle on and off?
Does the refrigerant lines get cold, I would suspect you have a leak after
10 years. That will be a costly repair. You can't add to a system ,just to have
it leak out and polute the atmosphere. A repair first would be necessary
Answer 3 separate issues. 3 separated systems.
There will possibly be related components with the windows and locks.
