1994 Explorer has an A4LD trans.This trans shifts purely off of engine vacuum and the governor mounted onto the output shaft.The kickdown cable is just that....kickdown (passing gear) only.To properly check vacuum,you need a vacuum gauge.Disconnect the vacuum line at the modulator and connect the vacuum gauge.Engine vacuum at the modulator should be 17-20 inches at idle.Have a helper rap the gas pedal pretty hard.Vacuum on the gauge should drop to near zero,then back to 17-20 inches at idle.This is important,as this trans shifts off of engine idle.If you have inadequate vacuum,fix the vacuum leak.The only electronic controls inside this vehicle is lockup (TCC) and 4th gear is controlled by the PCM and actuated by a solenoid on the valvebody.The other 3 gears shift off engine vacuum and roadspeed (governor).Make sure the modulator you installed is indeed for an A4LD as a C3 modulator will fit,but leave you with late shifts.

Since you have the same 4R100 as the 7.3L I recommend checking the resistance of the solenoid connectors, it is like sonic said at the rear passenger side and it will be hiding under some flexible heat shielding (it is next to the exhaust pipe afterall..). Specifically, take the resistance (ohms) from pins 1 to 4 doesn't matter which is black or red. It should be 10-20 ohms. You also might have to put a jack under the transfer case, unbolt, drop the support beam and let the whole drivetrain come down a bit for decent access. These pins should be labeled but pin 1 is in the row away from the tab and is the rear-most pin. Replacing the solenoid body is $200 and a pan drop. Grab a few gallons of Mercon!
