Only make right turns! Only kidding! Have you hit a bump lately? Ford uses an Inertia switch to cut off fuel flow when triggered.Have that checked and reset.

SOURCE: Where is the location of the ECM on a 1998 ford

ECM (Engine Control Module) is the old name to the new PCM
(Powertrain Control Module) denomination; this unit performs many functions on your car. The module accepts information from various engine sensors and computes the required fuel flow rate necessary to maintain the correct amount of air/fuel ratio throughout the entire engine operational range.

Based on the information that is received and programmed into the PCM's memory, the PCM generates output signals to control relays, actuators and solenoids.

The module is mounted under the hood on the firewall. On 493-94 models, it is mounted low on the firewall, near the left-hand fender (drivers side). On 495-99 models, it is mounted high on the firewall offset to the right-hand side of center.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disengage the wiring harness connector from the PCM by loosening the connector retaining bolt, then pulling the connector from the module.
  3. Remove the two nuts and the PCM cover.
  4. Remove the PCM from the bracket by pulling the unit outward.
To install:
  1. Install the PCM in the mounting bracket.
  2. Install the PCM cover and tighten the two nuts.
  3. Attach the wiring harness connector to the module, then tighten the connector retaining bolt.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope helps (remember comment and rated this).

I have a 2004 ford explorer i changed my battery and alternator and my battery light and service engine soon lights wont go off


you might want to get a scan to see why the engine light is on. it would be unusual to burn the fusible links, but that's about all that could stop the alternator from charging. The links are along the wires from the battery to the alternator.

Ford 98 explorer computer malfunction


Your ECM is reading that everything is ok. The light will stay on when the problem becomes constant. You can have the codes read safely while the motor is running.
