    I've got a 95 XLT 4.0 OHV 4x2, and the O/D light is blinking and it won't shift into overdrive.

    Does a 1995 Explorer ECU have to be programmed?

    I'm replacing the ECU in my '95. At the last minute I saw a clause in the sales slip that said that the seller was not responsible for programming ECUs. I called the guy's attention to that, and he said that applies to newer ECUs, but my '95 won't have to be programmed. Is he correct?

I will also say that my Explorer was manufactured in the later of the year of 1995, causing it to have some 1996 parts as well. So the problem is my driver side window went...
