Sounds like u have a speed sensor not reading. Easy way to check them is unplug them and hook a multimeter toeach of the wires on the sensor. Set your multimeter to A/C voltage. Now spin the wheel. The faster u spin the more a/c voltage the sensor should produce

SOURCE: radio lights off on 1998 ford explorer

1 -Check your head light switch and turn signal switch by taping them lightly - Common problem with fords to short signal light switch/head lights and they also have radio lights/clock lights control(lights dim for Radio/clock when you turn the lights on)

If you have checked all the fuses and switchs, possible that the light bulbs have burned out. Check with a local radio repair shop and they can remove the radio and install new bulbs.

SOURCE: ABS Light / Sensor on 1996 Ford Explorer

the rear one is a single sensor and is located in the top of the rear differential , unplug it and take the retaining bolt out and it pops straight up out of the differential. the front has 1 for each wheel,and is located on the backside of the wheel hub. take the tire off and look on back side of hub it should be the only sensor thare and is anchored with one bolt then just fallow the wire to its disconnect point. this vehicle is known to have problems with the rear sensor so i would replace it first and see if this fixes the problem

SOURCE: My brake lights do not work for 1998 ford explorer

Fuse #14 has nothing to do with brake lights, test fuse # 9, and fuse # 13, if they test good with a 12 volt test light (avail at any auto parts store for around $6.00) do the following:
Test the brake light switch at the brake pedal, use a 12 volt test light, probe one side until u find power, then press the pedal, at that point the other terminal should have power as well, if not replace the brake light switch, if this switch checks ok replace the turn signal switch.

Ford uses a sensor for brake fluid, to test disconnect from Master Cylinder and connect the leads together. If light goes out, replace the sensor.

make sure the wheel hub surfaces are clean and free of rust both in front of and behind the rotors. also check that your rear brake adjusters are working correctly. also check wheel berring, balljoint and tierod ends for play. theres should be no play and berring should spin free of noise.

How to change hub on four wheel drive 1997 blazer


You'll need to remove the caliper and rotor, remove the axleshaft nut, disconnect the ABS sensor wire. Remove the nut holding on the tierod, and disconnect the tierod end, a Pickle Fork will help remove the tierod end and seperating the ball joints. Remove the upper and lower balljoint cotter pins and nuts, seperate the upper and lower balljoints and remove the spindle. The hub is bolted to the spindle from the back with 3 bolts. You maybe need to have the hub pressed out.

When i turn the wheel the front driver wheel makes a creeking noise


It sounds like a balljoint or tierod end. Usually a frontend alignment place will inspect these parts in order to perform an alignment. This is somethig you can get prices on to compare shops.

Left Side is out of allginment


that easy have a allginment performed on it but first check for play in your upper and lower balljoints and tie rod ends if they hay play in them then a allginment is a waste of money. first get the front end off the ground then take a big pair of channel locks and start check those balljoints and tierodends its easy just put side of the plairs on the nut side then the other side of the plairs beside the balljoint then squez if the balljoint moves up and down then you know you have a bad balljoint and you can follow the same instructions for the tierod ends then after you replace the balljoints or tierod ends get a allginment performed
