    Here are some wiring diagrams, though I don't know if they apply to all 95-01 model years. Come to think of it, I don't recall where they came from either, apparently I was a glutton for collecting them about 4 year ago, but they've been more useful to me than the manual because this forum rocks:

    Thanks for the wiring diagrams, there's stuff on here that's Ford standard for the era that I've had to manually figure out.

    Thanks J_C. Really needed those. That was a solid. I hope all your babies are born naked.

    Not sure who shared the shop manual and wiring schematics. But to those who did I just wanted to thank them. I recently acquired a 96 explorer eb and have been chasing out all the wiring gremlins. Been fun and a total learning experience since the newest I have owned before this was an 85 ranger.

    The link provided by J_C worked a treat for me. The 256Mb pdf file is detailed and informative. Thanks very much!

    If the original links aren't working anymore (this is starting to be pretty old thread), just send me pm and i will figure alternative locations or make it work again. :hammer:

    Is a "stripped postal chassis" an Explorer and not a Ranger?

    Hacra I'm pretty sure that I am using the same software (I downloaded that ISO a while back, and am unsure of whether I originally found it on this forum, or just stumbled across it on my own) and unfortunately, I've never been able to get the wiring diagrams or basically anything but the workshop manual to behave properly. :(

    You might try grabbing the smaller wiring diagram upload that someone uploaded earlier in the thread. If they are just pdfs, then all the script errors shouldn't apply.

    I think the root cause for the TSO DVD not working properly has to do with the way people used to develop most apps like this to rely very heavily on Windows 95/98 versions of Internet Explorer. I haven't tried it, but I bet that if you were to dedicate an older machine to running 98 and then installed the service DVD onto it, everything would possibly work properly. For god's sake don't connect it to the Internet, though!

    Practically all the features required by the service software rely on really insecure aspects of the way Windows and IE were configured by default. Microsoft finally started doing the right thing and closing the barn doors, but unfortunately in our particular situation that means that software written (lazily, if I may be so bold as to say) back then tends to act really squirrelly, if it runs at all. :)

    I just came across a site that has a bunch of Ford manuals, and ironically one of those they offer looks like just a rip of what I posted on that link a few posts back, as it even has an Explorer Forum topic in it showing that I was logged in at the top of the page.
