Technical questions - IMS and Resistor at door pull

I just bought a 2003 from AutoNation and have driven it about 1K mi. I'm the third owner. Like many, I'm a bit nervous about the dreaded IMS. This weekend I changed oil filters to inspect. Visually I can't see any plastic or metal debris. Any information on how to inspect and whether it's worth doing on a regular basis?
Second item is I just replaced the passenger window regulator. In reassembly, I had difficulty with the white 2 pin connector; I may have pushed the pins in on the housing.
It connects to a resistor. Any idea what function it performs?
Third item is the car came without an owners manual. Where can I get a manual for the? 2003 base model

IMS issue is way blown out of scale. Only a small percentage of the total production run
has had issues.
The way I inspect my filters is to cut the plastic ends of with a razor knife.
Put the remaining paper filter in a vice. Squeeze the oil out then open it out flat and look it over.
Can't help with your other issues sorry.

Function of resistor in door - Solved

The resistor powers the light emitting diode (LED) in the door pull.
