Question about 2005 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Looks like a fuse button on center console

I just bought a 2005 explorer. I've read the manual, but cannot find reference to what looks like a red fuse reset button on the center console. This "button" is located on the drivers side of the center console, on the lower area which would be close to the drivers leg or knee. What is this "button" for, please?
Thank you,
Loretta

My change oil display on my 2005 ford explorer i changed the oil and it wont go out


Press your reset button on the on board diagnostics which is located on the dash, keep pressing the rest button until you see "oil life" once you come to the oil life, hold the reset button until it reads "Oil Life 100 percent" release the reset button, shut the vehicle off then re start it, that will turn off the message in the message center telling you to change your oil.

Where is the location of the turn signal flasher on a 1995 Ford Explorer? The manual does not mention it.


Ford Explorer's utilize a Multifunction Switch on the turn signal stalk, but the flasher relay location depends on the year. Either under the steering column (remove lower plastic shroud) or under hood with other fuses, links, and relays, inside a rectangular plastic enclosure). If you've bought the new relay, you'll know what you're looking for.
I have the same year and model, and my flasher is yellow with square-like a relay and extra extended cover, under dash to the left of the steering wheel, fastened with clip to lower upper hidden edge just below your knees.

I was reading that the yellow flasher/relay is for Explorers with a tow package, got to looking around at the electrical on the towing and it was all corroded by the plug in end on the rear of the 1995 eddie bauer explorer, removed it, cut wires off and taped up, tucked up in bumber, replaced fuse in fuse box leftest row, one about 4rth or 5th down blue in color was blown, everything works great now.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Cigarette lighter not working, already changed fuse


Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.

Power windows stopped working.


Look in your owners manual for the underhood fuse box. There are some models which have several sets of fuses. Also check your window lockout button which should be on the drivers door or center console. This is a safety feature to keep kids from playing with the windows.
It is not impossible to lose 2 motors at once, because I've done that, but 4 window motors at once is a stretch. Hope this helps.
