Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

1 Answer

How do I fix my 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac hood to latch shut?

The primary latch is stuck and will only lock in place if pushed on heavily with a wrench. The secondary latch moves fine. When I pull the lever inside the car to unlatch it, it makes a LOUD pop and unlatches. I have sprayed WD-40 and tried to loosen it. After a few hours, I still have a hood that will not latch shut. When I push down, it gets under the secondary latch, but the primary latch will not fully lock down. So it's only half-way latched shut. Help?

horn fuse should be under the dash. you may also want to check relays under the hood. They are in a block box labeled relays. Check under the dash first. There should be a diagram for the fuses in the owners manual or located near the fuse panel. The fuse block should be up above the brake

Drivers door won't open using key, handle or push button. Passenger door window won't go up using drivers or passenger door button


there is a broken spring inside the latch assembally. i dont think it can be replaced but if you remove the door panek from inside you can reach the latch assabally and find the lever that the spring was operating. when you pull up on the lever the door lock will work.. attach a new spring to the lever and to the inside of the bolt that attaches the exterior door handle and you will be back in buisness. had the same problem with my wifes sport trac and fixed around two years ago and sill works fine
