confused 2001 Windstar electrical stuff

I still need to take care of the PO171 and 174 codes, but I am also working on the following and just can not seem to get anywhere:

1) Keyless system will not work or program keychain remote.
2) Interior light will not work when doors open and I have no auto lock functions.
3) Daytime running lights do not work
4) I have to keep fuse #8 jumped to fuse #17 or I have no REM finctions.
5) Fuse #15, console power point, does not work at all, but the fuse is fins. Can not locate what this actually does.

I am going out today to re-check fuse box modules and fusesm but are there other modules, fuses or items that are there. I have gone through the book and see "general electronic module" and I assume these are what is in the fuse box? There is also a keyless remote module listed but doesn't give a location. Is this the black box under the dash?

The van runs great, but the MPG is down due to the lean codes and I would love to get the electrical crap fixed.

Thanks for anything that may help!

Do all these electronic issues sound like the front control module?

Re: 2001 Windstar electrical stuff

So fuse #8 has power and you connect it to #17 to give it power? How about fuse#2, 11, 14, 106, 113 in the battery box? Also fuse#8, 11, 14 in inside box?

"So fuse #8 has power and you connect it to #17 to give it power?"

The other way around. Fuse #8 has no power and I have to jump it to 17 in order for anything to work. The rest of the inside fuses (Less the power point fuse #15) all work. Outside did check them all when first and as far as I can tell they worked. I did look at 106 today to see if it was blown and it's not. I'll go out in the am and check the rest again.

I also read something about a sensor in the front for the day time running lights? The van was hit in the front so if there was one I may need to have that as well?

Thanks

Use a test light or volt meter on the fuses to make sure they are getting power. The fuse may be good but the power source for the fuse circuits may have a problem.

OK, well I checked everything that you listed above. Thay all have power and work, but the strange thing is that when I pulled fuse #105 I heard the relay click and then other functions started to work: day time running lights, auto locks and maybe others. When I pushed the fuse back in they all shut down again. Pulled the relays and they seem to be ok so now I am lost. How would the fuse for the started motor solenoid and ignition switch do this? The van starts and runs fine, but could the ignition switch be the issue? Thanks!

Fuse #195 doesn't run any relays. There would have to be some wiring problem somewhere, shorting to the wrong circuit.

Well, it looks like I may have to pull the box out and check under it for wire that are doing stuff that they shouldn't be doing. I know for a fact that it was fuse 105. Is it possible that a bad connection - ground- is creating feedback in the system?

I also have those two fuses jumped together. Could that be doing this?

One day this will all be finished......... when I can buy a new one maybe?????

Re: 2001 Windstar electrical stuff

I meant fuse 105. Fuses 8 and 17 would be hot at all times anyway so that shouldn't do that. It'd be a good idea to get power to the fuses without jumping across. Where that problem lies could be the same location for the other problems.
