Solved the charging issue. Swapped it with the one in the blue car Ordered the drivers side power window motor since the one I unlocked took a dump. Guess it has an open circuit in the rotor because if I take it off the window regulator and press the switch, the stupid thing works. I put it back in and works for a couple weeks or months, then it craps again.

The seller was out of stock, so I got a refund. And I got it from the local pepboys for less

Windows work as intended I've been chasing an electrical gremlin messing up the charging system. I swapped altetnators between the cars to see if that was the issue. It wasn't. I made two new connections to the battery. Guess that solved it. Oh and the battery is almost dead. Wont stay fully charged after a few hours. Can still start the car, but it's a matter of time before it goes out completely. My brother is interested in it, so I may sell it to him when he comes back from Virginia.

My brother likes the car so far. He's fixing it little by little the annoying stuff it has like a blown right strut, tie rod and ball joint. Sway bar bushings are next.

Got it back.

Long story short, my bro needed something more practical to haul the family, so I got the mustang back an sold him the Lancer instead. Guess I'll decide if I part it out this time or sell it.

Update

The 96 was spewing coolant before the fan turned on. A new radiator cap fixed it.

I was wondering if you flushed the cooling system or not? Pressure check? Did you get a new battery? Also Autozone will check the charging system for free that is if you still have a charging problem. .

Charging problem solved. Still need to drain and refill.

edit: looks like the alternator took a dump. No longer works.

Haven't driven it for some time. Possibly parting it out soon. There are parts for both the 94 and the Ranger that I can pull out from it.

OBD II port and power locks work now. Was a blown fuse. Gauge cluster has one half lallen to pieces literally, much of the circuit board. Alternator works when it wants lol. No trouble codes Every sensor works as intended.
