Default Swapped SJB 2007 Ranger

Swapped the SJB interior passenger fuse panel in my 2007 Ranger that had no power options with a 2006 fuse panel.

I did this to make my power windows and locks work which I'd swapped out of a 2008 and added the wires from the harness in the cabin to my 2007 harness.

Strange thing is locks and everything work, and windows, but is there something I need to do as now the ignition won't turn on and the car won't start with the new SJB from the 2006? If I put my old SJB back in everything starts again.

I hate to be the bear of bad news, but you need a 2007 SJB because Ford changed the electrical system in 2007 AGAIN. I was in just the oppisite situation because I tried to install a 2007 SJB in my 2004 Ranger and it wouldn't start. I still have the 2007 SJB. Send me a PM if you're still looking for one.

Oh thanks for the information, yeah I was worried about that seems in 2006 they didn't have the passenger side airbag sensor and some of the wiring had changed.

I am still looking for a SJB with power options for a 2007 or 2008. Are those the only years that work cause it changed again in 09?

I'll PM you about the one you have, I have a 2006 one if anyone needs one. I'm swapping the seats from the 2006 into my truck too and that will require moving the airbag sensor plate which should just swap in I hope.

Does anyone know if a 2008 is compatible with a 2007 for an SJB swap?
