    all connections are clean, like my post said all fuses are good. i see that there was a simular problem listed, i am 100 % this is a common problem with this truck, what is your next suqestion.

    hello
    not sure where your going with this, but i took your advice, nothing wrong with o/d wirer in perfect cond, again no blown fuses, some of the fuses you listed were not related what so ever, high beam fuse?
    again no power windows or dash lights.
    what do you think would be best next step?

    Cabin Fuse #21 supplies power to the Instrument Cluster Module and the flasher coil. If your turn signals work, this fuse is good. The Battery Saver Relay (cabin relay #5) supplies power to the ICM circuitry for gauges and Odometer, and this ICM circuitry in turn supplies coil power to the Delayed Accessory relay (cabin relay #3 - power windows, dome lights, radio) and the Rear Defrost relay. If the Instrument Cluster doesn't give gauge readings or Odometer, then it is most likely the Battery Saver that is at fault. Cabin Fuse 17 supplies power to the Battery Saver relay and thus (directly or indirectly) to all of the equipment that is not working on your vehicle. If relay #5 tests good, you may still have a problem with the car's computer not sending a coil voltage to the relay, so test that as well. If you have a good #5 relay, and #5 relay circuit coil voltage, load voltage, and ground, but your instrument panel still doesn't come online, then you either have a wiring problem to the instrument panel or a faulty Instrument Cluster Module.

Check the shifter wire.The wire coming out of the shifter shaft that powers the o/d rubs back n forth when the shifter is pulled. The dust boot at the base of the shifter holds the wire to the steering column.Check this wire. I agree the fuses are good.But still remove all the fuses,Inspect them,then clean the fuses and reinsert them.Check fuses number 45,46,9,19.In most of the cases with this problems,this fuses blows out.---------To access the O/D wire.The OD wire at the shifter beneath the rubber boot.After removing the lower shroud under the steering column, you have to turn the ignition switch to on , then push in the retainer ball under the ignition housing to remove the ignition assembly. You have to do this to remove the upper shroud to access the chafed OD wire.--------------Check out this possibility.Thanks.Helpmech.

    The fuse box under the dash.check fuse number 17.If its blown,replace this fuse.The fuse number is 17.you can use a test light to check each and every fuse with the Key switched on.But if all fuses checked out ok then this problem has to be checked part by part.It can be loose or short wire in dash board.Also it can be short wire in instrument cluster.It can be loose soldering in cluster circuit board.It has to be checked.For power windows not functioning. The most common cause is a bad or a fauty power window's motor. The switch might be faulty or the regulator could even be binding or the cable could be off one of the pulleys.
    f you hear NO sound at all coming from the motor it may not be getting any power or the motor itself may have an open circuit. To check and see if any power is getting to the motor normally requires removing the inside door panels to access the electrical wiring. After access to the power window wiring is gained, a test light or multimeter can be used to see if it is getting power and ground.Also check the battery terminals.If they are loose or dirty.Then with the ignition off, disconnect the battery terminals and clean them and reconnect.-------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Why won't cruise control, power mirrors, and power windows work on my 2003 Ford Explorer?


The diagram shows fuses--circuit breaker--relay, power windows. Did you check the applicable fuse circuit for voltage, use a test light? As you can see terminals 30 and 85 at the relay are hot all the time, use a test light to check for voltage. At the relay, the bottom right wire, 86, is ground, controlled by instrument cluster.
Are there any applicable trouble codes?

I lost my manual guide for 2002 ford explorer. Witch fuse belongs to the power windows?


It is fuse #17 in the fuse block under the driver side dash. That fuse controls the dome light, radio, and power windows in the 2002 Explorer. Nowhere n the manual does it tell you that the power windows are on that fuse. I am going from recent personal experience. It is a 15A mini fuse (blade type). Good luck!

How do I fix the problem of all 4 power windows


See if you have power coming out of the master power window switch when a button is pushed down. Remove a door panel and check for power at the window motor with the switch pushed. If you do not have power it could be the master switch. Good luck.
