You can as long as the tag id's match and engine but it should fit anyway the 03 trans is a 5R55 and so is the 05 but you must be sure by checking the door post tag for the trans code

What model years have interchangeable doors?

A search I did suggested that the 2002 - 2005 were interchangeable. But that was for an Explorer door, LH, not the Sport Trac.

Alternator wire diagram

I'm afraid not. The alternators as well as the trucks are wired differently.
The black yellow wire on both models goes to the fuse box, but on the 2005 model with the extra wire, the gray orange and brown white wires goe to the engine computer which acts as the voltage regulator. The 2003 computer would not have provisions for those circuits.

Will a radio from a 03 ford explorer fit in a 05 ford escape? The 05 escape has the pins you need to take it out. The explorer doesn't, that has two bolts. Just wondering if it will or could work.

They have kits to retrofit radios. Another thing that will cost is having the radio reprogrammed. Everything has theft lock on them now days. You would be better off to get a aftermarket stereo

1998 ford explorer 4wd no reverse gear, what could be the cause

It is a transmission problem. Had the same problem a few years ago and had to have the transmission rebuilt. I put it off for a while by not parking where I had to back up and if I had no choice, I put it in neutral and was pushed backwards until I could find the right person and price to get it fixed! Good luck.

My 98 ford explorer won't go in reverse... it will drive forward and go into lower gear but not this gonna be a big tranny job????

I know this sounds stupid but will it back up if you put it in 4wd low? If yes its a transfer case problem. If no, they the transmission will need rebuilt. Also can you push the vehicle forward or backward in park?
