    LED headlights (92 sport) (Success)

    I know if I ask about led headlights, people will tell me why not to use them. But has anybody retrofitted the housings to accommodate an LED bulb or is there a housing that works with the first gens.

    I replaced all my 1997 Explorer Eddie Bauer lighting with LED lights. Brake, tail, reverse, turn, interior and the headlights are now HID bi-xenon everything but the high mount 3rd brake light and instrument panel/dash is now LED. Prior to replacing the stock bulbs with these LED's I had no...

    My "Modified" Stock 97 Explorer

    Hi there, I just though I'd take a minute to share what I've done to my 97 Explorer, while keeping a relatively stock appearance. First, I decided to replace the stock dash lights with LEDs. Many of them were burnt out, and I was getting tired of the green hue. By putting in...

    DRL Activation Possible Resolution (US Owners).....

    PlatinumOwner has gone to the trouble of figuring out the codes in the BCM in order to enable DRLs and to also allow the LED turn signals to work without resistors. It disables the bulb outage warning and is supposed to stop the hyperflashing. Look at the second link where he lays it out in a...

    Turn Signal Wiring

    I'm trying to tap into the turn signal wires (to run additional lighting). There's 3 wires running into the turn signal, 2 of which appear to continue on to the parking lamp.

    Removing face-plate from stock CD receiver

    Has anyone taken the face-plate off of the stock CD receiver? I would like to change the bulbs but don't want to take it apart until I know a little about it. And installing a new unit is out of my budget right now.

    Temperature Control Buttons

    I took apart my dash today and took the temperature controls off. It's a white box-like with the silver front on it. What I want to do it remove the green film behind it and replace the bulbs with blue ones. The problem is I don't know how to detach the face-plate from the rest of it without...
