    Electrical
    -3 Windows dont roll down, its the drivers/passengers and the back passengers (needs a regualtor) the front 2 dont get electrical current at all?
    -Reverse sensors went out a while ago? idk if its a fuse? and if so where is it located
    -Mirrors dont move, its hooked up to the same circuit as the windows
    -The seats dont heat up

    Thats pretty much it for the electrical

    Now mechanical

    -4X4 dnt turn on, im pretty sure its electrical but im not sure
    -When u accelerate i hear a loud humming sound from the back? What could it be?


    Thats pretty much all of the problems, can anyone please help me out with identifying these problems, i would love to fix it myself and save a buck, o and if anyone knows where i can get the wood panel for the doors i would appreciate it (i need 2)

    Welcome aboard!! :salute:

    As far as your electrical issues go:

    I had similar electrical issues with my 02 xlt. The dome lights would stay on until the battery saver feature turned them off, the accessory delay wasn't working, the driver side puddle light didn't work, the keypad on the door would set off the alarm when I pressed it, the door ajar light would flash and beep at highway speeds, the radio would shut off as soon as I turned the key off, the delayed accessories didn't work, etc. Most recently all 4 windows stopped working.

    A lot of electrical issues can be traced back to broken/damaged wire(s) in the boot between the body and the driver's door. I found 2 broken wires and repaired them. The thin black ground wire was broken and after repairing it all was back to normal. When the windows stopped working, I repaired the thick black ground wire and the windows now work like a champ.

    Here is the thread for removing the door panel: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums//showthread.php?t=303524

    Here is a great thread for checking for broken/damaged wires, thanks to synyster for this awesome write-up: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums//showthread.php?t=270081

    Be sure to take your time when looking for broken/damaged wire(s). Check all the wires for breaks/damage. When you think you're done looking, look again, and again, and again. A bright flashlight can be very helpful.

    Here is a great link for troubleshooting the power windows, thanks to theofam for this great link http://www.scribd.com/doc/14896086/2...stem-Diagnosis

    Here is a great thread for replacing the window regulator, thanks to Dr_Z for this great link http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=243401

    Hope this helps out!! :D:thumbsup:
