    Hey guys,so my truck has 335,000 miles still running well,still have the back up issue stalling and running rough but now my power windows will not open or close,locks won’t work unless I open the door till you hear the door open sound,not sure what it’s called,and then the windows open and close,I can only lock/unlock the doors with the remote unless the door is open,it’s an extended cab,I tried pushing the switch between the front and back door(pictured) but nothing changed,any thoughts? ,as usual thanks in advance!

    I experienced a similar issue in another Ford product and discovered cleaning up the ground wires seemed to fix the problem. FWIW, YMMV.

    Pull the door boot loose inspect wire loom for broken wire(s).Ground is usually behind kick panel.Yeh,I hate electrical gremlins,very frustrating.Check other F150 forums,may point you in right direction..

    Funnily enough, that does not often happen. I've made pass-thru wiring repairs only twice I can remember since I began fixing car electricals. But, if you take an old hunk of radiator hose after you've repaired the wires, you can secure a 1" wide, 3" long strip to the inside of the bundle, which will afford some further protection to the repaired wires.

    They were the only ones on the edge. I once had a Plymouth that had one wire break in a wire loom behind the dash; it allowed the key/headlamp reminder to keep dinging even when both doors were closed. The harness was across an edge, and just that one wire broke. And the harness wasn't under any stress.
