COLMAR, PA--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2011) - Dorman Products, Inc.

Professional Technicians and Do-it-Yourselfers now have the convenience of buying Fuel Pump Driver Modules, Window Channels, Sliding Door Harnesses and Ignition Lock Housings from their preferred Aftermarket parts supplier.

New from Dorman is the Fuel Pump Driver Module found on over two million Ford F-150 Trucks and Explorer Sport Tracs from 2004 to 2010. This module controls voltage to the fuel pump and because of its location, the original part, with its aluminum housing is extremely failure prone due to corrosion, exposing the circuit inside to the elements. Dorman has re-engineered the part by adding powder coating to prevent corrosion, including mounting screws to position the module away from the effects of the elements and improving the micro-processor to provide greater response time and reliability. Learn more by viewing our installation video.

Power sliding doors are found on millions of minivans. On Chrysler minivans from 2004 to 2009, the original sliding door harness which delivers power to the sliding door motor is highly failure prone. Years of use cause the wires inside to kink. The Dorman Sliding Door Harness can be installed on either the left or right side power sliding door.

Our newest Ignition Lock Housings offer coverage for nearly 12 million GM vehicles. This part mounts to the steering column and contains the Passlock Sensor. When the sensor fails, it causes a "no start" condition and a flashing security light.
