    My windshield washer fluid pump isn't working. Figured it might be clogged, so I blew compressed air throughout. Still didn't work so I bought a new pump ($19) and installed it, but still not working. Asked my dad to listen if the pump hums when I press the switch, he says it was silent. I'm...

    2004 Ford Explorer Heated Seat Warmer Always On

    I have a 2004 Ford Explorer with heated seats. For some reason the switch is always on, but there is no light on the switch itself other than the display on the console that the driver's side heated seats are on (and hot buns). Is it safe to just unplug the fuse switch in the driver's side fuse...

    2007 Ford Explorer blowing fuse #43 (coil) when accelerating

    Hi everybody! My 2007 Ford Explorer XLT (6 cyl, 114k miles) often blows fuse #43 when I accelerate hard or medium-hard from a stop -- causing the coil to lose power and the vehicle to stall, often in a busy intersection, which is fun. I can go a few days without blowing a fuse if I accelerate...

    1997 Ford Explorer fuse help

    So I recently tried to use the cigarette lighter on the passenger side of my explorer and noticed it did not work. The cigarette lighter next to the radio on the front works just fine. I looked at the fuse (#17 i think) and it looked fine. I was just curious why one works and not the other.

    Went to get my 2000 Explorer Limited inspected in NC. Their computer would not talk to the car through the OBD connect (just under steering wheel). The fix was super easy, but non-intuitive. The cigarette lighter fuse (no. 17) was blown and this apparently sends power to that connector...
