    2017 Heated Seat Control Module Location?

    Hello all, I bought my Explorer a few months ago, it was just under 3 years old and off-lease. No issues at all, seemed brand new. After just 6 months of ownership, though, the heated seats don't work at all now -- both sides. I've done a lot of research and narrowed it down either to the...

    Headlight problems

    I have headlight problems in my 97 Ford explorer. When I checked the headlights, the side (orange) ones work fine when I test them but the main ones that are troubling me. I have a driver-side high beam that works, but not the passenger side. I have watched a video that helps but doesn't solve...

    Accessing cabin fuse box??

    So I've read all the threads and I can actually see the fuse box. The problem is there is a huge cover going over everything and I cannot physically get my hand into the fuse box. Is this a 2013 thing? It is bolted on so doesn't look very easy to remove. I don't even know the purpose of this...

    Ideas on Light Bar Mounting Location

    I'm thinking of buying an LED light bar, however, I can't seem to think of where/how to mount it so I'd like it. The main concern is, I can't have it on my roof if it's higher than the roof rack. I park in a garage on a daily basis and this is what limits me from lifting the Ex higher...

    Found disconnected vacuum tube, where might it go?

    My 1992 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr 4wd Auto 4.0 V6 has begun suddenly running rough and the check engine light comes on. It happened after I replaced the O2 sensor, when I was reaching behind the engine to get the O2 sensor wiring, and ended up pulling up that AND a vacuum tube from alongside the...

    Where's best place near dash to tap into 3rd Gen Reverse Signal Wire Black/Pink?

    Location of Camshaft Sensor for 98' 4.0 OHV V6

    Does anyone know where this is? I've read its on the back of the block, dead center. Problem is the back of the block is against the firewall and near impossible to see, even with a mirror.

    Where is the Temp Sensor for my Overhead Console?

    :confused: I have replied to a few post. But never asked a question myself. I can't seem to find the answer to this one. Although I am sure it is on here somewhere else. I have an overhead console, that recently burnt out(but that is a different story, unless you have one for sale...

    I just recently bought an '06 EB and it is time to change the oil. I just want to confirm that I have the proper location of the drain plug. Is it about in the middle of the engine area with the drain plug pointing to the passenger side. The oil pan is black and to the passenger side of...

    Alt. repair/replace.

    Four t-20 torx head screws secure the voltage regulator to the back of the regulator. It is possible to remove the regulator and brushes without removing the alt. But it is a pain and the chance of dropping a part into the housing is great.
