    Jumpering ABS light

    Well, I bought the Master Cylinder switch, and the light hasn't come on yet. YET! Haha. Quick question...do I need to reset the computer after installing the new master cylinder switch? Or does the ABS check itself during every startup? I can only reset by removing the battery...

    Sorry about the multiple postings. I'm in the process of selling this vehicle and am just anxious and frustrated. I did have a mechanic use a scanner to pull the code, and the code I am getting is B2292. The actual airbag has never went off and no replacement of such has taken place. The...

    Master Cyl switch & Rear Speed Sensor???

    What is the difference between the Master Cylinder switch and the Rear Speed Sensor? My ABS light is illuminating on my 03 Explorer and I've read that I need to change the sensor switch. I'm confused as to which one it may be. I'm getting error codes c1440 and b2292. My cruise control will...

    ABS Error Code Question

    ABS light has been on for a few weeks. I've read that the most common issue is the Master Cyl switch. I also have a brake pedal switch on the brake pedal, and a few months ago that was acting up, and I'm wondering if that is causing the ABS light. My cruise control does not work anymore...

    Airbag light

    AIR BAG LIGHT BLINKS 3 TIMES FOR 10 TIMES. AIRBAG light on, showing code #b2292 I've read in some other posts that the light can be jumpered for it to go completely off. Will this work for this code and 2003 Ford Explorer. If so, how is done again, and where are the wires to do this?

    Painting Brake Rotors

    I've read a few dozen threads on other sites regarding painting the rotors, and have yet to find a solid yes/no answer. Is it ok to paint the "brake surface" of the rotors with brake caliper/rotor paint? Meaning the front, visible side of the rotors where the pads meet with rotor? I have...

    Mountaineer side clear lenses? Keyless Entry Code? Seatbelt Chime?

    On the 2006 Mercury Mountaineer, there are 2 orange lights on each side of the front vehicle. These are not just reflectors, as they light up. I'm not referring to the side marker turn signals, but the lights on the lower front side of the vehicle. My first question is...does anyone know of...

    Custom Interior Lighting Question

    You can disregard my last post... Although not in use, the 4x4 and Message Ctr. harnesses are still behind the switches and once tapped into the power/ground terminals... works perfect! These harnesses are great sources of power for anyone interested in doing some auxillary lighting...

    Custom Interior Lighting Question

    harness?

    Yea I found that the type of switch varied upon what type of Exp you had. If you JUST had 4x4, the 4wd controls would be on the drivers side of the dash. If JUST have the message center, with no 4x4, then that also would be on the drivers side of the dash. If you have both 4x4 and the...

    harness?

    FYI... my vehicle is 2WD. Ive seen some of the Explorers that DO NOT HAVE 4x4 have a set of 3 switches that say something like "INFO, etc...) but those were on the drivers side of the dash. Then Ive seen some 4X4 switches on the passengers side of the dash. Im just confused.

    harness?

    I recently fabricated a new bracket for my GPS and mounted it on the dash. (see photo below) When i removed that black cap (where it appears switches would go) I discovered a harness clipped to the back of it. There are no buttons, but the harness was just kinda clipped in place. What...
