Why The back lights wont turn on, is a 1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer?

If by "back lights" you are referring to the backup lights and 10A FUSE 26 in the interior fuse panel checks OK, the transmission range switch may be defective.

If the park lamps are not working, the headlamp switch or the park lamp relay could be defective.

If the stop lamps are not working, the brake on/off switch could be defective.

1993 ford ranger. when you turn on left turn signal front light burns steady and back light does't burn. tested for power and had power. bulb is good. right side works fine.

Although you say you tested it for power, and the bulb is good, I am almost certain it you change the bulb it will work. The one at the back. Take the one from the right side and try it in the left. Then you'll know. If there is still nothing and your test light shows power, it has to be a bad ground wire. If you have an aftermarket trailer plug on that thing, that will be another place to look.

Will a tranny out of 2000 Explorer work in a 92 Explorer. If not is there any thing i can change or do to make it work ? ...

No they will not interchange,The 92 has a hydralic transmission and the 00 has a fully electronic transmission.You would need the engine,computer,wiring harness,transmission and god knows what else to even try to make it work.Better off just rebuilding the trans in the 92(A4LD Trans) or buying a working 00 explorer and driving it.You should be able to get th 92 transmission rebuilt for about 1500 give or take.Let me know if you need me to help you locate a shop in your area through ATRA or ATSG.Good luck!
