    Hello- I'm installing an Eclipse AVN30D unit into my 2002 Explorer 4-door Eddie Baur 4.6L. I have researched and keep seeing a gray/black wire to search for. I am having a tough time. 1) The PCM- which passes through the firewall on the passenger side- I have opened up each wire loom under...

    2002 4.6L Rear Bearings Axle?

    Update, we got the hub assembly apart. You have to disconnect the emerg brake line pop out three bolt on the back-side and pull what looks like ball joints. Once out, pulled out an o-ring and pounded out the rotor. I also found the emergency brake shoes were all busted up. So, for this job...

    2002 4.6L Rear Bearings Axle?

    Sorry it took so long to get back to this thread. I haven't been driving my explorer as the sound has been getting worse. Yes, I learned it is the bearing pack. My dealer said it was 6-750 per side. I was able to get the parts needed to do the job for about $100. Regarding the warranty, I...

    2002 4.6L Rear Bearings Axle?

    I forgot to mention... my expploer has a drivetrain warranty still... is this something that is covered? I don't want to take it in and find out cause the dealer charges $200 just to look at it. If this would be considered part of the drivetrain THAT WOULD BE SWEET! If not, I'm going to...

    2002 4.6L Rear Bearings Axle?

    A few months ago I started hearing a grinding sound coming from the back. I pulled the wheel and noticed the pads wear worn almost all the way down. (Rotors were fine). Anyway, it seemed to help but still there was a slight sound. I notice that the right rear wheel hub seemed loose... I do...

    2002 Explorer Passenger Window Assembly

    I have a 2002 eddie baur V8 4 door. Two days ago the passenger window stopped rolling up. I pulled the door panel and found the motor is running fine, but there is a plastic shielded wire that appears to have broken off. Basically, the motor just spins until it can't anymore in either...

    Need Remote Start Help

    Yes, it is delayed. I actually was procrastinating a bit cause I didn;t want to pull the dash and search in the kick and all. Finally, I got a new woofer and am going to do a custom build were the factory sub is located. Long story short, there was the factory module, so I ran a wire from the...

    Need Remote Start Help

    This post above is accurate. The middle plug on the security module (green) has 16 wires. The grn/purp pin #5 is the factory disarm wire neg input. It's required to deactivate when installing an aftermarket keyless. I did not have to use it for the remote start when using the pats...

    2002 4.6L Explorer Rear Defrost

    can't hear anything by the fuse box... is there a relay there for the rear defrost? One more thing, the side mirrors don't defrost either... the owners manual say they activate with the rear defrost, thanks for the help!

    Can someone please post the wire diagram for 3-plug security module located behind the passenger rear panel in front of the factory sub box? I'm actually looking for the wire that disarms and rearms that box. Better yet, if there's a way to disconnect it completely and retain that locks even...

    Hello minnesota

    Where are you located? Perhaps we could kick off something based on your invite? Most clubs will meet about once a month I've found. And based on size combine with other clubs and do regional stuff once or twice a year. Guess we're small enough to plan what ever we want without too much...

    2002 4.6L Explorer Fuel Pressure Regulator?

    Does the 2002 Explorer 4.6L have a fuel pressure regulator? If so, is there a part number or link to a place I could price it out? On occasion I've had to push in the gas to start it. Someone suggested a fuel pressure regulator; searching for one, nothing seems to come up? Same issue...

    Hello minnesota

    Well, there are finally a couple more! I have been waiting to see if there are others interested in an afternoon get-together. It would be cool to start with at least 10 confirmed cars/people or more. It could be something as simple as a BBQ in a lot or at a local farm, etc. I know with...

    2002 4.6L V8 Eddie Baur Explorer dies at Idle

    OK, here's a turn for the worse! I pushed the 4X4 button as I was going up this drive way. Suddenly, I gave the car gas but could not get any RPM's to go up... it felt like it wasn't getting any gas. I turned it off let it sit a minute then turned it on. It ran OK, then did the same thing...

    SmartKey Mod Idea...

    I agree with the previous post... get a remote start... plus, get some actuators, shave the door handles, install some suicide door hinges with air lifts... and even better... your doors open at the touch of a button, and it start w/o a key too!

    If your using your factory deck or using an aftermarket deck, it's the same as using an amp (just less power). Use the cross-over as shown or you'll damage those speakers.

    E-85

    How can I find out if my explorer is flex fuel? I have an 02 eddie baur 4.6L? I'd like to try E85, there's a station near my house it's anywhere from 40-60 cents/gal cheaper on a given day. Plus, E85 is cleaner and runs at a higher octaine rating... all good news for me if I can use it. thanks!

    2004 Explorer Eddie Bauer Stalls when using cruise

    Here's a post to keep it at the top... sorry, I have no idea. The older ones with speedo cables can cause the squeeling sound but I think these newer ones are different. I have some weird problems going on with my 02 :rolleyes:

    2002 4.6L V8 Eddie Baur Explorer dies at Idle

    I've been having problems with my X dying at idle. When I step on the gas it runs fine. It does it the worst after it has warmed up. When I come to a stop light it'll try to rev up, then in many cases die. I can step on the gas to keep it going. Here's what I know: *No check engine light...

    That looks awesome! Do you have a model # or link so that I can ensure to get the right ones? I think that makes a HUGE difference w/o getting new rims. By the way, any issues w/ speedo ride, handling, etc? thanks

    2002 4.6L Explorer Rear Defrost

    Nothing is working other than the light going on for about 1 second and shutting off after I hit the button. Anyone know how to test or what to look for? thanks

    2002 Explorer 4.6L Dying at Idle

    I switched the plugs out and saw they have black residue on them. Seems like its running too rich? The plugs seemed to have smooothed it out a bit, but it's still a bit bumpy at idle. I'll have to try again tomorrow when it's cold out. Any other suggestions>?

    2002 Explorer 4.6L Dying at Idle

    I bought it with 75,000 miles on it. Everything looks mint on it as if it was taken care of very well. However, I don't have service records. I will buy a set of plugs today and try those... they are probably due anyway. The plugs have built in coils and are very pricey. Visually they look...

    12v outlet

    If you run 14awg your fine in all appliactions. Anything you would try to run the would melt down 14awg wire would pull more current than the stock fuse on the stock lighter cirucit thus, blowing your fuse before the wire would smolder.

    Another guess would be snow or ice in the RIM perhaps? Hope its all fixed now

    More Horses... Less $

    I put an intake on mine (well a cone filter installed after the maf and removed the air box). Since I did that I'm getting 2-3 mpg more. It sounds a bit better but can;t say I notice a performance increase. I noticed you have chip listed on your mods. I was told that the 2002 and up could...

    Any photos available? I like my stock rims, but I agree, it would really make the X hot if they popped out about an inch more. How about cost and where to get these?
