This could be a little bothersome but pull one at a time and you will eventually find the bad one. Make sure to use the same amperage.

1998 ford explorer radio does'nt work switch on sterrein wheel to fix it ?no power to the radio

You can't turn it on by the switch on the radio ? Nothing showing on the radio display ? If not check these fuses
Blown central junction box (CJB) Fuse 1 (7.5A), Fuse 20 (7.5A), Fuse 28 (7.5A), and Fuse 29 (25A) . The switch on the steering wheel should not stop the radio from being turned on at the radio !

Replaced cigarette socket, and tail lights not working now on 1998 Ford Escort

Check for blown fuses first. pull them out to inspect them one at at time on the affected circuits as indicated on the sticker on the access panel .If none are blown under the dash, check the underhood fuses. and just check the condition of the wires bolted with the + battery cable on the starter solenoid. If none are blown underhood and all wiring looks good, you may have pulled a wire out of the harness, or it may have been a coincidental failure of light bulbs. The location where the wire may have pulled out could be on the fuse block under the dash, or even off the collumn connector which is on top of the tube, down near the firewall..

If anything was moved around in the trunk for other reasons, just check the wriring to the tail lights to make sure nothing got broken or disconnected, and check to make sure the black wires are attached to the body and that the contact area is clean with no nust.

Maybe you problem is with the switch, or check if power seat circuit has the regular fuse or rather one of those thermal ones.

Check your fuses for blown and busted fuses. If so, replace them with new ones of the proper amperage.

Need to replace the fuse for 1998 Explorer brake lights

Check for the busted fuse in the fuse box. This can be done using a multi-tester, Set the tester to 1 x 10 Ohms. Using a multi-tester, put one probe of the tester to one end of the fuse, while the other probe to the other end of the fuse. Good fuse will move the pointer to zero,
while bad ones won't. Check the fuse one by one.

Just started to happen. air conditioner, defrost, heater not blowing any air at any setting on 1998 ford explorer. my stereo was stolen a week ago. my husband pushed the wires back into the dash board....

There's a fan speed control module mounted on the firewall in the engine compartment. It probably needs to be replaced assuming you've checked the fuses and are certain a fuse isn't blown as a result of pushing the wiring back into the dash.
