Possible power relay in fuse panel underhood has failed.it is a black square plug in fuse block. these are available at parts store for about 6 bucks each.i had this problem on another ranger coupled with fuel injector problems.i traced it down to a blown power control module fuse and the fuel injector problem was the (ecm) engine control module had shorted out in the circuit board. the ecm on the ranger i worked on was located next to the vacuum booster in the fire wall at drivers side fender behind a cover plate.there is a wire harness plug attached to it and once unpluged it is replacable.

If this is a 4 cylinder, check your timing belt.

Changed plugs and wires on a 94 ford explorer and now it 's not tunning right. need a diagram. please.


FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired.

Need firing order and, I need to know what side the number one piston is on?


To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.

The 3.5L (VIN H) engine's unique ignition system has the ignition coils directly over each plug. No spark plug wires are used.
If a coil is replaced on any of the 3.1L, 3.4L or 3.8L engines, it may not be numbered, as is the factory coil. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your guide to reflect how your engine is wired.
