      ok hello to everyone im new here and am in need of desperate help , my explorer will randomly stall and die (but it will mostly do it while waiting for a red light or at a stop sign), it will do it few times accelarating , and has died only 1 time (out of the hundreds) on the freeway, (fyi over time it has gotten worst as in the stalls and dies happened more frequent) so out of desperation i took it to ford for a diagnostic ($114) and this is what they found:

      OBD-1 Codes-

      536 brake switch
      629 Trans fault
      157 MAF
      211 IGN module or loom
      542 Fuel pump or circuit (it has new fuel pump)

      543 these were both labeled
      556 together as wire harness


      ok based on ur guys knowledge and expertise :D what could be causing the random stall and dies, if not what to start replacing first , i hope i can fix this its getting out of hand thx all :(

      If you follow the instructions in this thread, you can save yourself $114 every time you need to pull codes.
      Best thing to do would be to disconnect the negative cable from the battery and let it sit for 30 - 45 minutes then reconnect it. Afterwards, drive it for a day or two and then pull the codes using the method in the thread I linked.

      I want to know what the current codes are and if they're KOEO hard codes, Continuous Memory codes, or KOER hard codes. Most of the codes you posted have different diagnostic procedures depending on the type of code, so I'll need the most current codes and the type of code it is.
