Complete Stock Oem/ Power locks/mirrors/windows Done

Hello everyone I have finally completed my install and all so far so good. I will be uploading plenty of vids to my youtube account and plenty of pics. It was actually a easy install with the fact that I was a newb at it. If their is anyone looking to do this the OEM way and not aftermarket lmk as I have access to alot of power windows rangers.

Special Thanks: To JOHN AKA WVCAT What a guy as he never hesitated to pick up the phone or return a call even send me a donor harness which is in the ranger. I am honered to have met him. Now John and I can start modding like crazy. I will post more tomorrow.

nice :D cant wait for the vids and picts. I'm hopeing you will have some of how you installed the power locks/actuators? my passenger side actuator is busted on my 2000 ranger but I haven't been able to figure out how to get the old one out yet. Maybe seeing one put in will help

oh yeah also cool to see a fellow Sacramentan posting on the forums

Your very welcome Martine! The actuators changed somewhere around 98-2000. Some are held with a bolt or rivet on the outside below the latch. The plastic ones clip onto the bottom of the latch.

Get to posting the how to, already! I just went to a salvage yard that had an FX4 with power everything. I was contemplating buying the whole interior and power lock/window parts.

Notice the key in the picture? The remote buttons are built into the Key. He was suggesting to say screw the keyfob with buttons, use a key WITH buttons instead. The new 2010 Mustangs have those keys as well as the Ford Fusions too.

Thanks for clarifying my post Shane. In addition:

The new style keys (Fusion, Edge, Taurus, Mustang, etc) will only work with 2001+ Rangers due to the embedded PATS chip.
