Question about 1993 Ford Explorer Limited
I drove my Explorer to the store. It ran like it always had without any problems. When I came out of the store 20 minutes later it wouldnt start, Dead and no click nothing. I at first believed it was the starter or battery. I changed the battery, nothing. I pulled the starter and had it tested, now I get a clicking noise from the sil-a-noid on the side wall next to the battery. So believing thats next I replaced that with a ford replacement. Still nothing so I was talkign with a mechanic who belived it could be the starter switch. I dropped the colume and he helped me replace that, still I get the same clicking from the starter and the silanoid on the fire wall. What could the problem be now? I really have used all my knowledge
I remember reading in the owners manuel of my 93 exploer about a cut off button. If wont allow your car to start if you are in an accident, and sometimes, even if you hit a pot hole or bump too hard, this can also trigger it. It can be reset though, and I believe it is located between the front and back seats in the middle. Not sure where, because it has been a month or more since I read it. But maybe some else knows just where to look.

Have you checked for cut or lose cables to the battery? I've had this happen to me and jiggled the battery a bit. Not sure your fix will be so easy. My battery was not securely fastened into place so it was breaking the connection with the battery cables.

following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any
electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.
The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.
