Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
Go to the hood and open it up and there is a box that is called a power distribution box it has a lot of fuses and much more.What you need to do is replace the fuel pump relay fuse. ( it will cost under $10.00) That is what will fix your problem. This fuse that I am talking about is on the left side next to the power point fuse and the other side is a pcm power relay so just replace the fuel pump relay.
I did have the same problem and it would start when it felt like it and you never new when it was going to start it was the most annoying thing I have every had to go through. I hope that this helps let me know I would be glad to look in it some more to see if there is Any thing else I could fined to help you,

You may have a map sensor prob. Try to unplug it and see if it stays running.

Have a 96 bronco II had similar problem. Turns out there are 2 fuel pumps one low pressure in the tank and one hi pressure on the frame rail under driver side. Check the hi pressure pump. If it is bad just enough fuel will be delivered to start but not to stay running for long. I found out you don't need the tank pump that the hi pressure pump works the system fine. Disconnect the tank pump if replacing the front one. It was a recall not advertised. Mine has been working fine for seven years. Hope this works for you.
