      Hello everyone....

      New owner here.
      I just got a 2004 EB Explorer.
      It’s a 4.0L, 4x4, has the electronic heat/ac.

      It was having the power window issue that I’ve read is common to these trucks inside the flex connector of the drivers door. It looked to have been previously done, but poorly.

      I reconnected the wires that came apart, and the ones that were half assed.

      Closed everything back up, turned the truck on, and now the whole dash cluster , radio, and the heater/ac unit is not working.

      The only thing in the cluster that works is the turn signals. The airbag light signals on when the truck starts too. Other than that nothing at all.

      I checked the delayed accessory fuse (fuse #17 I think it was?) wiggles the wires I made connections with, no sign of life in the cluster.
      Right now in the door, the power locks and the power mirrors are working but nothing else...

      Any ideas what could have happened?
      Thanks in advance...

      That is a tough one! If you only repaired the harness at the door jamb it certainly should not be effecting anything else. The only thing that I can think of is that you might have inadvertently pulled on a wire somewhere under the dash and disconnected it. It almost has to be something that was disturbed while doing the work. I haven't had to do this repair myself but I have seen ground wires under trim screws that were left off during re-assembly causing issues.
