I'm sure I can get them to work, I'm just thinking about the locks. As is i don't have power locks but the new motor I have came from a truck with keyless entry so if I hook up power doors to the truck, will the FOB work to lock n unlock the doors? I just don't know what part controls the power locks with keyless entry because I have the FOB that came with the new motor.

When I was talking to people about adding the pwr windows and locks I was told I would need a module for them to work so I gave up on the idea since the truck was gone but maybe something new.
Cory777, said he was working on the idea of pwr locks without the fob but maybe you can add an aftermarket receiver to actuate the lock/unlock.
That is what I will be doing when I get there but first the stereo/speakers/sub, then the soundproofing the doors, then the pwr windos, then the new grille, then , then… too many things to do.

I would say no, but I am no Auto Electronics Tech.
Start a thread and ask around on this site in the Interior/Electrical Section and see who comes back to you.
I know there are some really knowledgeable guys on this site so ask away.

For the power door locks the module in question for a 2000 ranger is the Remote Anti-Theft Personality Module (RAP). In addition to that you'll need the All Unlock, All Lock, and Drivers Unlock relays and may have to upgrade the GEM.

For the power windows, you'll need the One Touch Down relay, IP harness as there is an inline resistor and will probably have to upgrade the GEM.

For what its worth, I'd look at an aftermarket system. Take a look at this site Click Link

This has me interested now... I have an 01' Ranger XLT. No power windows or locks.

I could care less about locks honestly. Windows however are nice.

I don't have a junk yard anywhere near me so going to one and finding all factory parts is impossible.

This seems like the way to go:

A1 Electric Online Store: Power Window Kit for 93-2005 Ford Ranger by Electric Life

Comes with two motors and levers.


Buying this one ebay:

98 07 Ford Ranger Left Master Power Window Lock Switch w Trim Bezel Nice | eBay


Simply use that switch OR use the whole panel... because just buying the switch alone on ebay is around $50.... so why not just get the insert...?

In theory you would wire the motors up to a 12v source then the switches.... so you really would only have at most 6-8 wires going into the door panel right? I've wired up an OHC, in dash navi/rear view camera...etc. So this shouldn't be too difficult to wire up but just wanted to make sure.

Aftermarket definitely seems the way to go if one doesn't have access to pull an entire wire harness from a junked ranger... right?
