2002 Explorer broken wire in door-body harness

Are broken wires in the door-to-body wiring harness, inside that rubber
boot in the jamb, unusual? I recently had all the power windows on the
02 go intermittent for several weeks. Finally they failed totally.
Traced it to a broken 12 gauge power supply wire in the driver
door-body harness.

The only reason I ask this is because I own a 94 Jetta having this as a
chronic problem. Anyway ... please tell me this is unusual. Probably
damaged during harness or vehicle build. I can't see any metal it
could have come in contact with and the other wires are fine.

I sure hope I'm not seeing a future of wacky windows, alarms, speakers,
etc.

Bill

Re: 2002 Explorer broken wire in door-body harness

For an '02 its unusual.

On 2000 and older expeditions I had a few with "door ajar lite " on caused
by rubbing in the rear doors

But it can also be caused by temperatures , below zero temps and opening
your drivers door 30 times a day can cause a wire to break faster then
normal
