Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
My daughters 98 ford explorer's tail lights and interior lights stopped working a couple of nights ago. Now she's have steering issues and other issues as well. I vaguely remember there being an issue similar before, we replaced the light switch assembly and the issues seemed to be fixed at least for quite awhile, but is this possible that's really the fix, and if so, what's causing the light switch assembly to malfunction?

Yep Your going to have to take some of the Back Paneling near the light to get it out. Its not to bad just peal back enough of the Paneling to get to the bolts for the lights. Sorry no way around it.

check for the complete fuse box and search for short circuits. Check the fuses and the amps of each. Did you change the battery for a new one? Did you install any device not OEM? An alarm? Check the cable system. If this is ok, scan it.

you have to check all fuses with a test light both fuse boxes under hood and under dash... if good next to look for is the light switch itself... has any radio work been done to the lately... if so alot of times hooked up wrong will blow park fuse as one of the wires to radio is the park voltage to tell radio to dim down some
