    I've got a whole lot of noise (squeaking) coming from the rear window trim panel that covers the wiper motor. How does that cover come off?

    ABS light and flashing 4x4

    I would check the connector right down by your hub. Also check the routing from the hub to the connector. Sounds like the left turn could be tugging on the connector making an open and causing the error.

    oil gauge issues

    Take a look at this sticky thread. I am pretty sure the oil pressure switch circuit runs in this harness that has given many V8 Explorers trouble.

    Bluetooth/Handsfree options - 04 Explorer Limited

    The rear DVD unit has power to it at all times from the same power circuit as the head unit. However, the DVD needs a signal to "turn on." The DVD connector on the back of the Ford head unit is a 16 pin connector. Pin 6 (LG/BK) is the turn on signal (see photo at top of post). Ford listed it...

    I just installed a Kenwood Double Din Bluetooth w/ handsfree unit in our 04 with Premium Sound and Rear Entertainment System. We no longer have sound inputting to the head unit from the DVD but I wired it so the DVD does get power when the key is on. That way the DVD will still play and...

    4.6 intermittent stall?

    Our 4.6 2004 experienced 2 different episodes on dying. The first was at stop lights, the engine would occasionally struggle and die. All it wanted was fresh plugs. The other time it died while driving. We could restart it until one day it would not. That turned out to be a bad fuel pump.

    2004 Ford Explorer - Rear A/C not working

    For the rear fan to work you must have something other than OFF selected on the main vehicle system. That signals the Aux. A/C relay to energize to allow for rear fan operation. Power for the fan comes from a 30 amp fuse in the battery junction box. Verify that is good first by visual...

    03 Explorer rear turn and lower brake lights dont work

    One circuit powers the rear lights for brake purposes through the brake relay. Another circuit goes through the flasher and power up the same bulbs when selected for turn. Both circuits power through the Multi-function switch which is a potential cause.

    03 Explorer rear turn and lower brake lights dont work

    I would suspect your brake pedal relay. It is inside the Battery Junction Box. You could swap with another just for a simple test. The relay should pick up when you activate the brake pedal but does utilize the ABS module. The high mount brake light does not go through this relay.

    Recommendations for replacement CD player

    We just bought the Kenwood DPX501BT but have not installed it yet. We also got the PAC-SWI steering wheel interface adapter. This will retain the ability to control the unit from the steering wheel.

    05 explorer wont take fuel at the pump

    I pulled my tank a couple years ago to swap out the fuel pump. There is more to the tank than people give it credit. Make sure the tank is low on fuel when you lower it to reduce weight. Also, consider doing outside since there is fire risk. A fire could injure you, damage your vehicle and...

    There is one or two large electrical firewall/bulkhead connections up and left from the brake pedal. Those needed to be pulled for the dash and reinstalled. You may want to pull those, reseat them and tighten the bolt that goes through.

    Voltage Regulator source & replacement

    I thought I could get by last year on our 04 original alternator with a voltage regulator. After I got the reman from Ford I took mine apart to find the slip rings were worn and pitted. I would go with a quality reman and don't fuss with replacement of a single subcomponent in the alternator.

    I wired at bluetooth adapter directly into the RCA wiring up in the RES. The sound comes in on the Aux in and sounds just fine. It's all hidden. Here's what I used.
