2000 Ford Explorer battery gauge staying low, replaced the battery with a new one. No noise form belt or alternator. Belt might have a very little more play in it. Lights aren't dimming, turn...


Hey Vick, make sure your battery cables are in good shape,,especially the connections.. if you see ANY corrosion anywhere on either cable - replace it!!
If you are game.. disconnect the alternator and while it is running reconnect it - ONLY IF YOU CAN DO IT SAFELY!!.. sometimes this gives it a "kick" and helps..

Fuel gauge not working on my 1988 ford f159


It is most likely the sending unit in the fuel tank,but,check it first,if you unplug the connector to the fuel tank,the gauge should go past full.If you use a test light,and ground the clip on the end of the test light to a good,known,ground,and touch the right wire,it will light up dim(test light)and the gauge will pull down slow,to ,past the empty mark on the gauge,if it does this,the sending unit is bad,if it does not respond to any of this testing,then the gauge,or a connection to the gauge is bad.

My power windows wont go down and everytime i do try to roll down the windows the panel lights go dim


you have a short in one of your window motors,probably the drivers door
any time something fails to respond to a request for power Do not hold the switch on it you can cause damage by heating up your wires.

Power winidows, wipers, dome lights not working on 1998 explorer


This could be a combination of electrical issues, although i feel that the timing is coincidence in this case. When the combination is elec. windows, wipers, and dome lights this is indicative of the GEM module located behind your radio. The GEM (generic electronic module) is an electronic body control module that regulates electrical flow through a number of accessories.

These factory module boards are notorious for acting quirky by failing to ground intermittently until failing completely. I would be cautious in replacing ignition switches, locks, etc. as the issue can be also compounded by corrosion of the main battery ground wire in the engine compartment and which can cause frying of your under dash wiring into the main wiring harness which can get expensive (i speak from experience having had the exact same syptoms). My issues were that these symptoms occurred only in full ON. When in key BACK ACC mode, they disappeared.

New price for one of these modules is around $280-$300 and easily replaced.

Good Luck

Lights Dim, Radio shuts off, battery gauge dropps


I would check the ignition switch, they are know for separating and causing issue's like this one, Ford recalled many of them, but the Explorer was not on the list, though it uses the same switch as the recalled cars..
