Pwrd Dr Lcks

I just got a set of doors from an 01 Ranger XLT with all of the power stuff in place. the truck had 100K miles and most of the stuff looks brand new.

My problem is this, I had to cut the driver’s side harness short, just under the dash, is there anything else I missed that is needed to operate the pwred components, like the remote actuated locks ?

Thanks for any help, I can still get to the truck so the extra parts are still there is needed.

Assuming that your Ranger doesn't have the Power Equipment Group already, you'll need the Central Security Module to make the power locks and remote keyless entry work. It is hidden forward of the airbag above the glove box. Also need to make a patch harness if the dash harness is not prewired for PEG. Need PW relays added to Aux Relay Box #1 up under the dash to the right of the steering column.

Thanks Bob and yes I do not have any pwr components, at all.
Is there any numbers or shape to look for because I am not really familiar with the control boxes and the such, I’m old school.
I will look when I go back up on Thursday.

The module is off-white and cheap looking (but I'm sure it isn't) and has 2 large multipin connectors. There will be a 5-digit code stamped on the label.

I Googled "Central Security Module" and got a couple of pictures from an old R-F post of mine. LOL

Make sure you take lots of pics of your swap. I'd love to add power windows and locks to my truck but am not about to swap under dash harnesses. I've done several dash swaps in my past, and hated them all.

The pwr swap is now on the list but not high on it.
Finish Back Rack Mounting
Interior mods first, Bucket Seats, Sound Deadening, new carpet, power port in the rear of the center console, new speakers for OEM CD6 (no idea on this one), Dash Lighting, to include cluster, All the ***** and the switches, etc.
Manual T/C and all of the Linkage
Rear AxleSwap
Readjust the Coil-Ovver Lift in Front
Then we can talk Pwr Windows/Mirror and then the Locks.

the locks are going to be a problem, I have not idea what I am doing with them, how they match up to the Control Module and the System itself; would be nice to get a stand alone control and use it instead, maybe something I will have to think about but the locks will be last on the list, sorry.

Power locks are about that high on my priority list as well, lol. If someone does find out an easier way to swap in power locks with out a total rewiring then it might get bumped up the list just a little.

Exactly… I was thinking an aftermarket control module that can use the Ranger actuator, just two wires for power and one or two for the actuator.
that should be enough, I will have to talk to some of the aftermarket companies and see what will come up; another thing on the list, chk w/companies… LoL.

The cheap aftermarket security system I bought came with actuators but said you could hook it up to existing actuators. Its not to bad wiring it all up.

I have not used any aftermarket systems but A1 Electric seems to have a good rep. I don't know if they sell the RKE receiver separately or if it would work with factory actuators. Might be worth a call.

I got the Security Module but there are a few wires that need hook up and not being a Wiring Wiz Kid, like some on this Site, I am going to pass on the locks until I can verify the A-1 System working with the OEM Actuators.
I want to hook up the OEM Actuators and Switches with a Control Module for opening/closing the doors and maybe some security.

Not high on the list of things to do but it is on there as stated earlier.

Have you checked out this guys thread? I'm considering giving this a try. I don't really dig the way his power windows look with the stock door panels so that would need to be addressed.
