    I seen this right after I got my vehicle, it's on diver side. but not sure what it is.

    Also my gas hand can't be working right. How many miles can you go on a full tank? When it gets to 175 miles my light comes on need gas. 20181130_161312.jpg

    Its a switch, and it’s not from the factory. What it’s for is anybody’s guess.

    Are there aftermarket lights on the truck? Is there an aftermarket alarm? Have you tried switching it?

    @Mbrooks420
    My '04 4.0 makes it to 300 miles, semi-rural driving, at which time gauge reads about 1/8. It will take 17-18 gal. to fill full. Warning lamp supposedly comes on @ 2 gal. left, never had it come on (may be NFG). Tank capacity supposedly 21 gallons. imp

    I think there is a problem with the sensor level will need to be replaced. Says it's empty at only 174 miles

    NFG = no good.

    When it says it’s empty how many gallons does it take to FILL it? This will tell you if you have a gauge issue, or a consumption issue.

    You won’t get 20 gallons in unless you drive it to fumes. 19 should be pretty normal.

    Shirley, is your Explorer a 4x4? Reason I ask is that switch may be for the "Brown Wire Mod". Just wanted to toss that into the discussion being how winter is close at hand. Best wishes,
    Doc

    BWM is basically a switch cut into the brown colored wire that energizes the electromagnetic clutch which enables 4x4. Some folks don't like AUTO 4X4, the BWM overrides that feature.

    No this is for the automatic 4x4 function of the transfer case where it will engage the front driveshaft on slippery road conditions. Not at all related to automatic or manual transmission.

    @shirley klotz
    To explain, they refer to a clutch within the 4-Wheel drive system which electrically couples and uncouples the front driving wheels from the rear. imp
