    Leak through overhead console... not drain lines.

    I've got an '04 Explorer. I posted on this a year or so ago, and got one suggestion, to caulk it shut forever. Another summer is here, and I'd rather not have to keep it in the garage, and not use it when it's raining. Usually, but not always, water leaks through the overhead console, coming...

    I have had this issue for the past year and cannot find a fix. The only way to get my 94 Explorer Sport to start is if I jump it off. I have a brand new 10 year battery from Costco, the alternator tested good, and I changed out the entire battery cables from the battery to the starter. The...
