    2006 explorer EB no heat, actuator works

    I replaced the thermostat housing today because I could see it was leaking some. I replace coolant and still no heat. I guess i will try the heater control valve now. I am not 100% sure it leaks but I already have one here, so maybe it stopped up?

    2006 explorer EB no heat, actuator works

    after popping radiator cap, i do not see coolant in there. It looks to be a little wet beside the heater control valve. So guessing that maybe leaking and causing me to lose fluid. plan to replace that and coolant and see where that goes

    2006 explorer EB no heat, actuator works

    I have a 2006 explorer 4.0 with 124K and today it would not blow hot air. I initially pulled actuator but that works fine, no stripped gears or any of that. Wondering if theres a vacuum leak or something else. It has not had any recent work done to it.

    Head liner problem.

    yep mine is doing the same thing. debating on pulling the headliner completely out to apply new fabric to it. looks like that might be a real PITA to do!

    interior lights wont come on

    just a quick update, not sure how much it matters but apparently the part I got is for an 07 expedition and not an 06 explorer so trying to track down the correct part at the moment....

    interior lights wont come on

    no the dash lights work, but are pretty dim, i can see my speed and all that I just can't adjust the brightness of them, and then courtesy lights don't come on when any of the doors are open. my puddle lights work(in my visors) and I can turn the dimmer switch all the way to right to cut lights on

    interior lights wont come on

    yes all doors and the hatch when open will not trigger the lights. I can turn 3rd row light on with switch and as I said turn dimmer nob all the way to right and they all come on.

    interior lights wont come on

    you mean like turning it off and back on again? I have drove it a few times since fixing that switch and its still the same. I have also looked at the fuse to make sure that wasn't it.

    interior lights wont come on

    so i thought it was the dimmer switch(rheostat) but i replaced that yesterday and now I still can't brighten or dim my instrument lights and I have to turn it all the way to right for my interior lights to come on. wondering if I could have got a bad switch or its a relay somewhere?
  12. F

    interior lights wont come on

    Yes, so far I've determined it's in the rheostat switch, but tonight I checked and the lights now work, weird but going to put a new switch in it anyhow. Earlier today when I rolled the wheel the lights would come on and go off so thinking it's in the switch

    Crappy MPG on my '07 Explorer

    something i just changed and never had and hoping it fixes a light of mine....fuel filter?
  17. F

    p0193 and p0193p

    the truck has a little over 103K miles and I just changed my fuel filter for the first time and cleared the code. the gas that came out of the old one was almost black so i'm going to see if the light comes back on after that, i'll keep the posted updated.

    06 EB radio install issue

    it was a bad wiring harness, I ordered a new one and replaced. I also installed a relay between the harness and connection to stereo.
  20. F

    Which wiring harness to use

    new harness was the trick, I also installed a relay with it per notes from talking to customer support at PAC who make the wiring harness.

    Which wiring harness to use

    quick note, helps to have a multi meter. tested the access wire(red) and did not have output to stereo. ordering a new wiring harness
  22. F

    Which wiring harness to use

    Apparently I have the right harness but the guys at PAC are telling me I need to add a SPDT relay to the setup because some stereos pull more power.

    Which wiring harness to use

    I have an 06 Eddie Bauer that had the factory 6disc changer with the factory sub. No sync in truck either. And I'm installing a kenwood radio. I'm having an issue with the PAC c2r-frd1 harness. When I drive along the radio turns off after 10 or so minutes of playing and will not come back on. I...

    06 EB radio install issue

    The radio has cut off twice on me and will not restart without unhooking battery for 30mins or so. It cut off once while radio playing and just cut off on ipod playing. So guessing either a radio issue or a wiring harness issue. My harness has that blue pac module on it, are people using that on...

    06 transmission question

    Have an 06 EB with 78K on it, for awhile now it has been slow to engage in R or D from Park Or R to D as well. But the other day I was on a slight incline, got in car and dropped it in R and it didn't engage nor did D. It took a few times messing with shifter before it finally kicked in. Anyone...

    brake smell for wheel

    I pulled the wheel off and when I smell the caliper I can still smell it. It also looks like some of the paint coating is chipping off the back pad. So I am guessing its the caliper?

    on our 06' Eb the airbag light comes on and stays on sometimes. Someone told me its a loose connection under the seat? and i searched other posts and they say battery is going bad.

    Baby seat install

    its the Graco myride65. and yes i don't think it will hurt at all either. i had my firefighter neighbor help me with the install and he was baffled the head rest would not come off, but we did recline the seat, he actually sit in it and him and I both pulled on the strap to tighten it down. so...

    Baby seat install

    I have installed a baby seat in my 06' EB but the top of the seat hits the head rest. And you can't remove the head rest on that row. SO i have installed the car seat with the seat reclined a bit so it sits flush on the baby seat. Does anyone have any other suggestions here to avoid reclining...
