Any Maryland Shadetree Mechanics?

I have a 1998 Ford Explorer with so far only minor problems that I'd like to get help with. Things like the inside door handle not working, the remote door opener only locking and rarely UNLOCKING the door, and a slow moving electric window. Besides the minor things I'd love to meet someone who knows about these things or could refer me to an honest (and hopefully cheap) mechanic near Annapolis, MD. Anyone?

Hey Trucknmama never had an Exploder that new but my older ones had similiar problems.I am willing to bet the the inner door handle not working is frogging up everything else.It sounds like maybe everything is just out of alignment.If everything is rubbing other parts then the electric motors have to fight to do thier job.Remove the door panel and see if the locks/windows/latches work easier.You might be able to realign the panel or install it less tight to the door and make things work.A bodyshop/bodyman might be better than a regular mechanic .Hope this helps.
