How do you know the fuse needs to be changed ?

  • The turn signal lamps are never on
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse:
    • 13 (20A)
    • 23 (10A)
  • Circuitry.
  • Multifunction switch.
  • Electronic flasher.

Sounds strange for all of that to be happening. The valve covers might need new gaskets. If you have a misfire, it could cause the O2 sensor to have a bad reading. Usually it's only 1 or 2 coils. (I would also replace the associated plug if they change a coil.) You could run it from there and if it doesn't clear up, then replace the O2 sensor at that point. Given the age of the car, getting the O2 sensor out may be a pain because it may be rusted/frozen in. Ford didn't believe in doing a good job putting anti-seize on the O2 sensor heads. Mine stripped when trying to replace an O2 sensor, so rather than have to replace a whole section of exhaust, I went to Midas and had them cut it out and weld in a new piece with a bung for the new O2 sensor.

It will depend on the model of Transmission. Most common for this a bad "Shift position sensor switch" sometimes also called the "gear position sensor".

Check the body control module. All the locks go through it.

This is because your master switch on the drivers door may have corroded oxidation on the contacts inside the switch and that master switch is the feed for all inside door lock switches your remote and keypad work because those electrical signals go through the driver door module you must clean all contacts on the master switch get them shiny you can use 4/0 steel wool and alcohol and also take the lock switch apart and clean the button contacts inside the switch for this use alcohol and 1000 grit sandpaper glued to a pencil and lightly spin in your fingers to shine the contacts sometimes just an eraser works but it depends on the quality of it so go with the sandpaper glued to the pencil or any circular object that will fit inside after this blow out the switch and use the alcohol to clean out and let dry

If the fluid is low on the larger section of the master cylinder, it is probably an indication that the front disc brake pads are becoming worn. As the pads wear, the caliper piston moves out of the caliper, requiring more fluid to displace it. Since brake pressure warning and low fluid warning use the same indicator light on the dash, if the brakes are operating normally, its probably not a serious problem. If you had an actual brake system fluid leak, the brakes would not work properly(low pedal, mushy feel, etc.)
You should have the front pads checked, just in case they need to replaced now, rather than just refilling the brake fluid because if you fill it first, then find out the pads need replacement, when the caliper piston is pushed back into its bore, it will push the fluid back into the master cylinder, overflowing the reservoir.
Because brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning that it attracts moisture from the atmosphere, the water and any associated corrosion/gunk it collects will settle by gravity to the lowest point, the calipers. So, you do not want to push that junk back toward the master cylinder(and thus through the anti-lock brake control), so the proper procedure to be used before pushing the piston in is to, using a brake hose pinch clamp, pinch off the hose, open the caliper bleeder valve, use a small diameter hose to direct the expelled fluid into a waste container. Then after pad replacement, pump the brake pedal to reseat the new pads against the rotors, then refill the master cylinder with appropriate fresh fluid.

Lastly, when there is a cold snap, the brake fluid will contract, many times causing the warning light to come on. Then after driving(due to heat under the hood warming the master cylinder), the light may go off, or you may see the light come on briefly when cornering. This is a normal indication of the aforementioned pad wear. Hope this helps.

I think you might even have your car battery checked as it is the heart of all activity. Batteries can build up overnight and react differently in heat.

Along that line is the transmitter for your key-less, the mate to your FOB which needs and uses radio signals to operate. The heat may have gotten to the part inside your car. Heat messes with electric components and may drop the strength of the signal. This is what it sounds like happens if the FOB needs to be over the hood of your car to operate. The car part of the system does not have a strong enough signal to respond to the FOB. Could be a gap in the antenna in the responder.

mode door actuator , it's a electrically controlled motor under the dash on the heater / A/C unit . Videos on youtube showing how to replace them .

fix the idle speed to 850-900 rpm
check the alternator and voltage regulator as the voltage should read 14.5-14.8 volts dc at 1000rpm or higher regardless of what is running
have it bench tested by an accredited auto electrician

There could be a fuse you are missing. I don't know your model well enough to say, but some have a separate fuse under the dash.

When filling up do you top off the take or stop when the pump shuts off ? Over filling to the point the vapor canister is full of fuel ? Gas tank filler tube is rusted an leaking , Hose for evaporative emissions leaking ? Look under the vehicle at the fuel for a crack vapor canister etc... Your vehicle is a 2002 an these parts don't last for ever . Any warning light's lit on the instrument cluster ? Check engine light etc.... Do you know what a evaporative emissions system is ? It stores fuel vapors instead of venting to the atmosphere .

DPFE sensor failures are VERY COMMON on Ford vehicles. However, clogged EGR ports are also very common on 5.4L Ford engines. The DPFE sensor is located on the left side of the engine. It connects to two silicone rubber hoses that connect to the steel EGR tube coming from the back of the engine to the EGR valve. (See picture of the sensor below)

Another common failure is a DPFE sensor that has melted due to excessive exhaust back-pressure. If you find the DPFE sensor melted, suspect a restricted exhaust. (smashed tailpipe, clogged catalytic converter, etc..)
