small electrical issue

My nf2 fairlane has presented me with an interesting issue i only noticed today.

Well, as everyone knows, the power windows/seats remain usable for upto 45seconds after the ignition is cut.

Now I'm having usuable power windows/seats for like 5 minutes instead!

Is this a tell tale warning sign that my body control module is starting to pack it in?


Best wishes

I thought that the eletrics remained enables for 60 secs after the ignition is turned off, and a door is opened.

But if you leave the door closed, the electrics will work work for 60 mins after you turn the engine off.

Might this be the case.

No, they are that smart.

Before I posted the reply I checked my glovebox manual and the ford factory service manual, and it states the 1 hour on time if no door is opened.

But I stand corrected on the 60 secs. It is only 45 secs after you open a door.

Could this 1 hour ontime be what is happening to you.

Or maybe the switches in the doors have failed and not telling the BEM that a door is open. I couldnt see that if your BEM has died, it not affecting other things.

something is wrong, because its working for about 15 minutes now even if the doors been opened. And the door switches are working as i can see the car diagram on the dash showing which door is opened also all the lights come on. Very strange.
