I've seen many recent ford vehicles with a built in Test mode in the digital odometers, including a trouble code display, digital tachometer readings, speed, and other information. I've found the procedure for mustangs F-150's and focuii on the web, but the same procedure doesn't work on my explorer.

Anyone know how to do this?

The Explorer may not have that feature.

True, may not have. But I bet it does. The focus, mustang, and F-150 definitely have it. And some people on e-bay are selling the 'secret' of how to access it for virtually every ford vehicle on the market.
Anyone with a shop manual or the CD should be able to find the procedure easily. I can run a similar self test diagnostic on my 92 ford taurus' Electronic climate control system.

Why not just post it up? Is this some sort of secret handshake club? :confused:

It's emptied now. If someone wants to post it up, go for it. I just don't have the time to sit there and upload all the pics that go with it to an online host, and then piece it all together on here with the right pics to the right steps.

If you would like to post it send me your email and i'll send it to you.

I have tried this on my 02 limited and it does not work. Maybe it doesn't work on message center displays.
