check your on and off button at the steering wheel.
use a multi-meter set in the ohm postion and see if there is conectivity as you push each button. you will have to take the button off the steering wheel but it will take
just a few minites. while your at it you can check the right side also.

The light on your interior button should only come on when the lights are on, so I wouldn't worry about that until the lights are fixed. There should be a relay for your fog lights. I would check your underhood fuse relay box. switch that relay with another, such as fuel pump. I lights come on and now vehicle won't start, you know that it is the relay you have now put in your fuel pump circuit from your fog lamp circuit.

Common problem on 2001 Ford Explores. The reason why your door handle doesn't unlock the door(can't be unlocked by remote either)is due to a broken spring located on the backside of the door handel INSIDE the door. True that your one(or two) of your small exterior springs on your door handle are broken(will cause your handle to flap) but this IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM. The door locks will work if there is a bit of tension holding the handle bracket up. I know it's hard to explain without pics. but here's the ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS. It's not that hard.......... Remove the door panel, only a few screws and a few more holding trim around exit handle then, pull out "snap in" clips on bottom. With a flashlight you'll see back side of door handle. To get to that area you'll have to remove one bolt holding a window frame. Do that(with window in up position) then slide down rail, out of your way. Now, get back to handle. With your light aimed at the backside of handle left slowly the door handle as normal, and you'll realize(while looking at the mechanism) that tension(pulling down of bracket) needs to occur in order for locks(manual and remote)to work properly. Trust me.....you'll figure it out. Once you do, get a spring(pen spring, 30 cent hardware store spring, any small spring!) and hook one end to bracket and the other end to ANYTHING(OUT OF THE WAY) below the door handle thus, causing SLIGHT tension. Try your locks...THEY WILL WORK! YEAH! Replace that one window frame bolt(try your window...just the make sure), replace door panel and your done. TOTAL COST: 30 cents or FREE(if you have a small spring) Ford dealers will charge $150 to $285! Yikes!

2001 ford explorer sport will start but won't idle


Most likely there is a vacuum leak somewhere, check all small hoses and plastic "T" fittings for cracks or breaks, could be a vacuum line to the heater control, power brake booster also, listen for hissing noise @ startup. Happy hunting.

What should it cost to get cruise control fixed


depends on the cause that it is not working. the cruise control switches in the steering wheel send signals to the ECM and theECM sends signals to the cruise control servo.so there is a wide range of what it would to fix it. the cheapest and usually the most common failure is the brake pressure switch located on the brake master cylinder. it is the switch that FORD had the recall on to install a new wiring pigtail because the switch would short out and cause a fire. the switch starts to leak brake fluid and shorts out and also will not allow the cruise to work.

The cruise control on my 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XS is not working after I took my car in for a complete interior / exterior detailing. What do you suggest I check? It has worked beautifully since...


well the first thing is to check all your fuses, then i would take a look under the hood for any broken or disconnected vacuum lines,this is what i would check first, hope this is helpful.

I need to replace the cruise control switches on my 2001 Explorer Sport and don't know how to get to them. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am concerned about the air bag. Thanks-- Pete


The air bag is completely disabled when the ground cable to the battery is disconnected. Check online for recalls from Ford on your cruise switch also for they had a fire hazard recall a couple years ago

Cruise control, Every thing shows that its working. but no cruise control,the on/off buttons makes the dash light go on/off and the brake turns off the dash light.


check the linkage from the cruise servo to the throttle.
and make sure the vacuum servor is connected to the vacuum line and check that the servo is not leaking vacuum.

hope this helps

thank you

Where, exactly, is the orifice tube located on my truck?


the orfice tube is locate in the line between condenser and evaporator. near the spring lock coupling. you must unbolt the cruise servo and overflow bottle, reposition them out of way and you will see the line connection..the orfice is inside line near that uniion. the ac system must be evacuated prior to removal, and recharged afterwards..
