1997 ford explorer
hi my name is stacey i have always been a ford owner most times i can work on some of the stuff my self this time is not the time lol. about a week ago my truck started making a kinda loud thump in the front by the driver side tire normally when i turn right or make a sharp turn. this morning the 4 wheel drive light was flashing on and off i checked everything 4 wheel drive was not ingauged then the windows would not go up or down any more. i was thinking fuse for the windows but not so sure about the 4 wheel drive prob. i never use it the last time it was in it got knocked by mistake and i had a hard time getting it to disingauge. any thoughts or help would be great thanks. stacey

welcome to the site. You make want to check the front axles to see if the u-joints are bad in them. A bad axle would make a thumping noise.

check the owners manual, i cant remember what fuse it is but when my explorer blew a fuse it took out the power windows and the 4x4 light was flashing. I replaced it and the problem was fixed

it could possibly be the hubs. mine was making a grinding/thumping noise and after i replaced the hubs on both sides it quit. Also if your ABS acts up it may be the hubs.
