Power window and locks

Alright guys, I just got almost everything I need to install the power locks and windows in my truck. I bought it all from a buddy so I am not sure where to start or what is missing.

I think Bob as a good write up on how to do this. If so can someone post a link because I need something to help me through this. If not can someone tell me how.

The first three pics I am not sure what they are or what they do.





This is everything that I received from him. Can you guys tell me what I need to make this thing complete.

Also he said I can have remote locks if I buy a "brain" for it. He already gave me the keyless entry and I think that white box pictured has something to do with it.

Thanks guys

I think you are going to find that your trucks wiring harness doesn't have the wires in the plugs for the pw & pl setup. You will probably have to run some wires. I am not sure about this but I know my 99 didn't have the wires in the harness so I used manual doors.

Probably some power and grounds, some to the parking lights so the flash when you lock and unlock, one for the horn so it honks when you look. Stuff like that.

Ford makes several different dash harnesses for Rangers so yours may or may not be prewired for PW/PL/PM. Since you have a 4.0 XLT, the odds are better but you still may not have it. If you need to add any wires, I recommend that you get a Ford factory Wiring Diagrams manual for your 2002. They can usually be purchased on eBay for $10~15.

Thats what I was talking about. Pull you kick panel off on the ps side and compare the amount of wires in your existing door harness plug to the one for the pw & pl's

So I need to take off my pasenger door panel and see if I have the harness. If I do is it just plug and bolt on the new power stuff. Then running power to the battery and a few grounds?

You want to pull the PS kick panel, not the door panel. Look underneath for a 16-pin connector that will match up to the 16-pin in the PS door harness that you got from from Dane. A truck that is wired for the Power Equipment Group will have almost all of the 16 positions filled in the dash harness side (something like 14 wires, give or take). If the 16-pin isn't there or only has a few wires, then you definitely don't have what you need for plug and play.

The plastic piece below the dash just ahead of the door. It's a small panel held on by a push pin or two.

I highly doubt your Ranger is prewired for the power group.

1) you do not need the GEM (black box) the one in your Ranger is the same, just add to your original.

2) were are the connectors for the CSM? (whitish box) There are A LOT of connections to make here and it's not very practical if you don't have them.

3) you do not need the interior door handles or the cable going from the PL actuators to them. Use your original ones.

4) you need a lot of wire and butt connectors (or solder) and tape/heat shrink.

6) you'll need some extra pins, if you have the connectors for the GEM in the pic, you have way more than you need - they are not easy to find either.

6) you'll be bypassing the horn relay you have now for the one in the CSM. If memory serves me correctly, the original relay is in the box that would house the PW relays if you had the OEM power group and it's a PITA to reach.

7) Relays, you'll need them for the PW - again, the factory box is a PITA to get to...

8) If you have the base interior door panels like my Edge did, the power group panels that house the switches are not going to fit in them so you'll need to obtain the correct door panels.

9) Etc., Etc.

No Sir, you do not have the power group wiring. You have the same wiring that I originally had in my Edge.

There are 18 connections for the CSM, 8 connections for the power mirrors, and ?? (I don't remember) for the power windows.

I can't speculate how long it will take you. All of my wiring is from scratch, and although I have all of the wiring done, I still haven't installed the PW motors/regulators. They've been sitting in storage for about 5yrs - I reckon I'll install them some time this coming week.

Reading this thread with interest. However under my PS kick panel I don't even have the box. Just two things that look like they may be bolts for something to attach to. No power anything, so I guess the wiring is not even there. Bummer.
I guess I need the full thing too if I decide to do this.

If you're kickin a 2 wheel drive, you won't have the box shown in Lords' pics of the PS kick panel area. That box is the Four Wheel Drive Control Module.

Just asking, how bad would it be to take a wiring harness from a prewired truck in the junkyard and putting it in the truck? Would you need the whole wiring harness or just everthing in the cab? Maybe just the prewiring wires? Maybe I am just really talking dumb?
