Question about 2002 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

My radio and power windows have been shutting off as soon as I turn the key from the engine running position to position 1. I thought they used to stay on for 10 minutes or until someone opened the door. Am I remembering it wrong or is something wrong?

3 possible solutions: Check fuse #17 (it's 17 on my 2004) to see if it blown, that controls the power accessory delay relay. You may need a power accessory delay relay, they are on top of the fuse box way up underneath the dash to the left of the steering wheel. They are about 10 bucks, but they are a real *$%@# to get to. Also check fuse # 6 in the power distribution box under the hood. There is a list of all the relays etc.. on page 182 of the owners manual (pg 182 for my 2004)

My key is stuck in the ignition.


Your car has several different ignition positions. They each offer slightly different functionality.
Off: In this position, the engine is off, and so are your electronic accessories (unless the delay has not expired yet). You can still turn on lights (headlights, interior lights, etc.).
ACC: This is the accessory position. Turn the key to ACC if you want to listen to the radio, play a CD or use other accessories without cranking the engine.
On: In this position, all of the electronics should come on. This is also the position that the key will return to after cranking the engine.
Start: Turn the key to this position to crank the engine. Let go of the key when the engine is running and the key will return to the on position.

I use to own a car that had an ignition that was ACC - OFF - ON - START.

Try turning your ignition one position clockwise and see if the radio turns off and the key comes out.

What color wire


find the wire that has power when the key is in the run position and off when the key is off and piggyback that wire.. Normally the radio is wired into the accessories wire so that you can listen to the radio without having power run through the coil and burning it out. That wire will have power when running and when turned to the accessories position.

Do it three times in a row.

1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.

My first thought was a dirty battery cable connection...corrosion builds up and allows contact to work all of your accessories, but not good enough contact to work the starter? Sounds like the problem comes and goes...as this is the case, if your Buick has the 3800 V-6 the start sometimes and not sometimes usually points to the crank position sensoe...$35...If your car is running now...does the check engine soon light come on? If so, your local Auto Zone will plug in a testor that can help pinpoint the problem...:)

KEY ON ENGINE OFF THE RADIO, A/C BLOWER MOTOR AND


This is normal. It has a timer system cutting Power to all of these with the engine off. It is to limit power from the battery to run these too long, decreasing your voltage capabilities of your battery.
To run the Radio / Power Windows with the Engine Off: turn the Key counterclockwise from Key OFF position to ACC (Accessories) position. Your Radio and Power Windows will operate. Your AC/Blower will not.
