I would go to a parts store and ask for the to take a test to it(it is free) schucks does it. Or get it a diagnostics done on it but it would be a good idea.
I was told by more then one mechanic sensors go out, Yes even the brand new ones because what made you replace it the first time may be doing it again to the one you just did.
good luck.

Cant find base1 sensor2 on a 96 ford explorer 6 cylinder 4 wheel drive

It's called bank, not base. On a v6 or v8, each side of the engine is called a bank. Bank 1 is always the side where the number 1 cylinder is located. On Fords, number 1 is on the right bank or side, the right as if you were sitting in the vehicle, so well, the passenger side.
Sensor 2 is the oxygen sensor in the exhaust stream after the catalytic converter (somebody recently called it the cadillac converter!). You have two oxygen sensors on the right bank, one before the cat and sensor 2 is after the cat. The only purpose of sensor 2 is so the computer can monitor the efficiency of the catalytic converter. It compares the readings from sensor 1 and sensor 2. Sensor 1 information is how the computer adjusts fuel trim.

I have a 1997 ford explorer and it reads 1 2 4 6 cylinders are misfiring and bank 1 and 2 are lean and bank 2 sensor 2 problem please help!!!!

If the front oxygen sensors have over 100,000 miles
on them change & then work on vacuum leaks in exhaust
prior to converter & then ignition misfires

Spark Plugs--every 3 years
Clean MAF Sensor

Exhaust Converter may be shot,then only last 12 to 14 years
If so-- then do the rear sensors as well

Check engine light came on April 11, 2011. It has run fine, tonight I started it and the ABS light came on and stayed on. What does this mean? 1996 Ford Explorer XLT. 98,000 original miles.

Sounds like a "WSS" (wheel speed sensor) problem. Each wheel has one. Located on the backside of each hub, between the brake disc and hub bearing. Check for loose connector first. Wire damage? Wiring touching exhaust pipes or rubbing wheel or tire? Look for mud or debris or damage to the sensor's or the rotating sensor ring. ( has a lot of "teeth") Try driving in reverse, in a straight line 25 to 30 feet, then drive forward twice that distance. If that does not clear the warning lamps most auto parts stores can hook into your computer (usually for free) and determine which sensor(s) have an issue. Replacing these sensors is common and simple. You may still need to get the code cleared to turn light off.

Engine light is on, flashes when driving above 100 Km

stop by local parts store (Autozone,Advance, etc) and have them do a free fault code test. They can print out a list of faults and clear the codes

I have a 1996 ford explorer and the speedometer only works half the time. What could be the problem?

There is a problem with these electronic speedometers, but 1st have the fault codes read and see if the speed sensor has set a code, if it does have a code for the speed senor replace it, if there is no code for the sensor the speedometer is defective and needs to be removed and send out to a Ford electronics repair center.

How do you replace the speedometer drive gear on a 1996 ford explorer xlt 4x4 v6

If you mean the gear in the speedo head .You have to disassemble the cluster. Google odometer gears and order a new one. It's a lot cheaper than a cluster.

1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on

The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......
