It seems to be a short in the steering column wiring.
The high beam is on the stalk of the steering wheel correct?

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Explorer Sport wont start

Even though I bought the vehicle new, there was an aftermarket security system installed. The system had a bad diode, so i removed the system and reconnected the factory wires.

SOURCE: 2003 ford explorer battery light on

Are you sure the alternator isnt "over" charging? if not, you may have a "loose" connection somewhere with the cables, or a malfunction in the dash cluster. Also, are you positive the battery is forsure good?

first thing i would check is the wiring were the plow wiring is spliced in at this is most likly the culprate. or you may have a bad multi function switch in the steering column

SOURCE: 2005 ford escape, starting problems. The battery

If the battery tests that it is holding a charge and has plenty of volts to otherwise start the vehicle then I would be willing to bet that it is the starter. Try following the red or positive battery cable down to the starter. Have some one turn the key to the start position while you or someone else gently taps on the starter with a hammer to see if it is just stuck. If this does not work, i would take the starter out of the vehicle and take it to a parts store and have it tested before buying a new one.

2000 ford 4.0 explorer cranks but fails to start. It acts like it starts after sitting all night but then only cranks, what is wrong?


Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.

What causes my 97 ford explorer not to start? it clicks but wont start.i got the starter checked and it pass.coil pack tested good and the battery is new. what else could be the problem?


you need to takes a good look at the battery cables. sometimes the cables burn or pull apart inside the insulated outer sheath and can cause this, also check for poor connections at both ends of the cables(corroded) loose. this doesn`t happen often but it does. take and disconnect the cable and pull hard it should not stretch or fell soft when pulling.

Installed new battery in my 2005 explorer; now warning lights, cabin lights, and door locks are acting irratically.


how long was the battery out of the vehicle? some vehicles require reprogramming if the battery power is off the vehicle for a period of time. Might want to check with a parts man at your dealership. They sometimes give you free information. they know their fords because they sometimes they sell a lot of the same parts.

2005 ford explorer spot trac acts like is running out of gas but has 1/2 tank


hi,

sounds like a combination bad vacuum leak and/or fuel. find the egr valve and temporarily plug the line going from and to it and test it, check all your vacuum connections, you would hear it hissing. those plastic vacuum connectors get brittle and crack about this time . Ive had a few electric fuel pumps fail that way, half dead. bout time for one of those. check fuel pressure also.if it threw a code and the check engine light is on then you can have the code read at autozone for free.

2005 FORD EXPLORER DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES 9318, 9352. battery, alternator and starter were checked. these codes show on my message center. car hesitates to start WHAT IS MY POSSSIBLE TROUBLE? car died...


This really sounds like a problem with your battery. I know you said you checked it, but is it really putting out the appropriate voltage (12.66 volts) and CCAs? Even draining the battery once can damage it (especially in cold weather), and cold weather reduces the CCAs a battery can put out. A weak battery can cause those codes. When the vehicle hesitates to start, does that typically happen on colder mornings or after the car sat for longer periods of time? I would double-check your battery. If it's the original, it's near its end of life anyway.
