Your gas cap could be losing pressure, bad seals. Most of the time the light goes on cuz no one closes the gas cap all the way, by rotating it right till they hear 3 clicks.

A light still on after 3 clicks, go to autozone, by a new cheap gas cap - under $20

My turn signals and emergency flashers work some time where is the turn signal flasher relay located and how do you detach it?


For 1998 Ford Truck Explorer 4WD 4.0L EFI SOHC 6cyl the Flasher is located in front seating area, driver side, behind dash, mounted on steering column.

Both the turn signal flasher and the hazard warning flasher are mounted on the fuse panel on the truck. To gain access to the fuse panel, remove the cover from the lower edge of the instrument panel below the steering column. First remove the two fasteners from the lower edge of the cover. Then pull the cover downward until the spring clips disengage from the instrument panel.

The turn signal flasher unit is mounted on the front of the fuse panel, and the hazard warning flasher is mounted on the rear of the fuse panel.

Hope helps.

Your turn signal flasher is separate from the hazard flasher. Replace the turn flasher.

No turn signals or hazard lights


Check the FLASHER, also can review the Fuses, located inside the passenger compartment, under the drivers-side of the instrument panel.

Fuse panel and power distribution box identification for 1995-99 Explorer/Mountaineer models-Part 3


Power Distribution Box
Located under the hood, in the engine compartment. It houses the fuses and relays for most of the under hood components which are not controlled by a dash mounted switch (such as the alternator, fuel pump, ECM, etc.). The fuses and relays are replaced in the same manner as the fuse panel inside the vehicle. The power distribution box cover is hinged on one end and utilizes a retaining latch on the other. Simply release the latch and lift the cover up to gain access to the fuses and relays.

Ford explorer 2003 Issue the turn signal indicator lights in the dash went out one a week ago the other yesterday. turn signals are working fine just no indication off the instrument panel. all other...


It seems that the bulbs went out or the ribbon cable that runs behind the instrument panel burned out check on a junkyard for a replacement instrument panel and replace it, verify that the truck you pull out the instrument cluster is the same year and the same model.

Engine light came on, gas cap was loose


Probably nothing wrong if the gas cap was loose. Sometimes it takes an odd combination of driving modes to reset the monitor. Toyota seems to have an especially fussy drive cycle for the evap system which includes the gas cap. Just keep driving it, it should go out soon.
