Question about 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

1 Answer

2004 Ford Sport Trac CHECK GAUGES light came on & truck lost all power.

I had to coast off the road with no power steering or brakes. Shut everything off, waited a minute, and started up again. Everything seems to be fine now. The gauges are reading properly and never indicated a problem when this happened.

It seems that there is a battery draw that is shorting out the fuse. you need to trace the wire back to the point of power and see what is going on. My theory would be that some place in the power out (from the fuse) it is grounding to the chassis. I wouldn't even be able it give you and idea where to start considering how many wires there are, but if you can isolate that wire and chase it back to the cluster and the gauges you will find the issue.

2004 ford sport trac lights and rear lights not working


Do the brake lights work? if not there is a more serious problem affecting all lights at once.
If they do, The switch unit may be damaged, have a look..
Then check for burnt wiring or damaged wiring near the keyswitch and in the engine bay. Clean all wiring connectors by seperating them and spraying wd 40 on them.

Have a ford explorer sport trac and rear brake lights don't come on I replaced the bulbs and checked all fuses all good could it be the brake switch if the third brake in the center comes on ?


There is a short in the steering column. Put the tilt steering all the way up. You may even have to push it up. This will close the short. Open the cover and you will see the wire has become loose in the harness.

I have a 2003 ford explorer sport trac. The brake light are not working. The bulbs are fine. The fuses are fine. The 3rd light works. What could be the problem?


it could be the brake light switch, you should find it under the dash around the area of the brake pedal , a wire may have come off or the switch could be loose & needs to be adjusted & tightened up, also check the wiring around the brake lights for any loose or disconnected wires..........hope this helps......cheers.

I'm having about the same issue. I've traced it to a problem behind the instrument panel/cluster. You will need to or have a mechanic pull the instrument panel and check to see what is causing the gauges to malfunction. I can tap on the instrument panel and everything comes back. There is a short of some sort.When I find out more, I'll post. Good luck
