      the later ones have the starter solenoid built into them dont they? The 96-95 has the fender mounted solenoid

      the 98 Mounty I parted out had a diff box so I think its 95-96 are same,. 97+ diff

      The 99 starter solenoid is on my starter. The number of fuses and relays is similar, but my 98 harness had more odd relays elsewhere under hood.

      I don't trust autozone's diagram's-if you look in the 98 explorer for example it mentions a WOT relay.
      there is no such thing as a WOT relay, in a 2nd gen explorer anyway. lol

      I know that their diagrams are from Alldata. I guess any company could have printing mistakes. I saw in other threads quotes from Haynes, and Chilton manuals stating wrong bolt torque values, and relay, sensor, and battery locations.

      If you guys with 95,96,97,99,00,and 01 owners manuals could please scan and post the same in here, or email them to me-I'd sure appreciate it:thumbsup:
      Not to sound picky,(I am) but I don't want anything from an on line source here-I don't really trust them.

      There are differences from year to year-and I think this would be very helpful.

      Thanks:D

      I have read this post and thought I figured out my problem on my 1999 Explorer. However, when I plug my trailer lights into it my 3rd brake light comes on right away when I have the head lights on, and I have no left side blinkers or brake lights on my trailer but both tail lights work. Does anyone know why this could be happening? Any quick info would be great since I need to use my trailer in about 12 hours. Thanks in advance.

      Do the explorer's lites work fine when the trailer harness is NOT plugged in? If so, it sounds like something is shorting in the harness only. Or maybe even a mismatched harness? Seems like the tail lites are shorting to your 3rd break lite some where in there, and break/blinkers are not even reaching the trailer. Do the explorers signals/break lites work w/ the harness plugged in and headlamps off? This just seems like a bad harness, or improper harness installation.

      Thanks for the reply jwrezz. It was really odd on how i got it fixed, I had to replace the #7 fuse, which was blown, and that got me to the problems that I explained in the above post. I then took the wiring off the tow dolly and started over, since everything seemed to work great at the pigtail on the Explorer. I found some bad spots in the wiring on the dolly so I replaced that and still had no brake lights or turn signals on the right side with the headlights on. Just on a thought I replaced the right 1157 bulb on my dolly and now everything works great. There was also a bad ground so I got a better ground and everything is good. Thanks again for the reply.

      2000 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Fuse Pages

      I have been trying to trace a dead DLC (Data Link Connector or OBD-II port) and saw people were posting scans of their owners manual fuse info.

      I have a 2000 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer with 5.0 V8 and here are the pages...#192-199 in my manual:

      Sorry, not the best scanner...

      Did you figure it out? Good luck. As for the 2007, jjfbugs09, start a new thread, maybe some one else will see it. Good luck.

      This is great.

      Where is the layout for the blower motor realy box behind the headlight?

      Man, this truck is harder to troubleshoot than ever.
