electrical troubles, of course

Hi there! I'm having electrical problems with my '99 explorer....the driver is the only one who can operate the power windows----when I stop the car and turn off the engine, the headlights have started staying on afterwards, and the dial won't turn them off. They now shut off after 5 minutes or so---- The cd player will read any cd until the engine warms up, but after that, it won't play anything I put in----the oil heating gauge will bounce from cold to warm while the car is warming up. Does anyone have any ideas? Someone suggested that the ground might be rusted since I live in a cold, snowy place with lots of salt on the roads. I'm taking it to the dealer next week, but I'd like to have an idea of where they can start looking, since I know electrical problems in Explorers can be hard to figure out. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

A bad PCM will cause wierd things to happen like you're talking about. You might want the dealer to check it. You can get one pretty cheap from a junk yard
