I just acquired my parents 2004 ford explorer from them and was wondering if the 4x4 auto comes on automatically or do you have to turn it on? they said there was some problems with the lights in the dash...


Why would or how would a vehicle know it was snowing,
and needed 4 wheel turned on?

Of coarse you have to select a button to turn it on or off

That said, it may not be working correctly,which is what your
parents told you!!

My brake lights do not work for 1998 ford explorer


Check and make sure you have the right bulbs and fuses installed. However, it sounds like a wiring problem. Probably at the rear of the vehicle. If you are in a "snow" area state, the ice and snow formation can break or pull wires apart. Also, check your ground wires.
