The ABS motor is controlled by the computer. The function is different for 2 wheel vs 4 wheel ABS. My guess is that you have 2 wheel ABS. Look at the write ups by Chris and Helmet. Basically the computer will compare engine speed and transmission speed to wheel rotation during braking. If very different, it will pulse the braking system to avoid skids and most effectively apply braking pressure.

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on

The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......

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: Temperature Control not working on 1999 Ford Explorer

Sounds like your temperature actuator is not moving or your temp door is broken. On max a-c ,coolant is shut off to your heater core allowing only cold air in.

SOURCE: 1996 ford explorer windows, locks and seat fuse keeps blowing

Disconnect as many of the door switch wiring plugs, and wiring plugs for the seats that you can. Then, drop in a fuse. If it blows, you probably have a wiring issue, not a switch issue. If it doesn't blow immediately, reconnect the doors, and seats one at a time till the fuse does blow. Once it does, you've isolated your problem to a smaller area, and can replace / rewire that component.

If you've disconnected everything, and the fuse still blows, you probably have a wiring issue that will need to be traced. You will need a multimeter that can read ohms. You'll need to isolate different parts of the circuit (probably by unplugging and or cutting a wire in that circuit unfortunately) then use the multimeter to test the ohms from that part of the circuit to NON voltage side of the fuse holder. (If you try to test ohms on a hot circuit you will likely fry your multimeter!). If the meter reads low ohms, there is your short. High ohms (infinity) means there is no circuit, and there is no short. When you hit on something of low ohms, you've isolated the problem to a smaller area, and can keep tracing that wiring back to the fuse box to find your short.

Good Luck.

My ABS light stays on, Can the ABS system cause my rear wheels to heat up? (To hot to touch) 2003 ford explorer.


Remove the ABS fuse to disable the ABS system . The brakes will work as NORMAL brakes and you will now see if the rear brakes heat up. They more than likely will as the ABS would not have any effect on the brakes in normal running situations.
Suggest take the vehicle to a GOOD brake shop and get them to fix the problem

1991 ford explorer will not turn over when hot


Have the battery tested and check the battery positive cable for corrosion. Also have a amperage draw test done on the starter motor, it is one of them. If it just clicks but won't start then the starter is defective in most cases. Have it properly diagnosed by a dealer before any parts are replaced to avoid unnecessary parts replacement

1996 ford explorer+abs light on+no scan codes


Check fluid level in master cylinder first.

Then check the connector on the differential. Leads/connections may be corroded. Follow the wiring harness in the frame channel for abrasions of the wiring harness up to the ABS solenoid. If you have a towing package with the larger "Bergman" plug instead of a 4 flat, check the wiring connections for the controller, and check to make sure the other connections have not broken.

The ABS codes may only show up in real time. Nothing is stored except total failure of ABS solenoid.

My heater just stopped working, it still blows air but just not hot air, i checked the coolant and its fine, it had never over heated. so please help


check to be sure that the thermostat is closing, sounds like yours is stuck open, which happens a lot ,, if the water won't stay in the motor long enough to heat,, then you won't get any hot air coming out , follow the top radiator hose to the motor, under that housing is where you will find the thermostat , thay are pretty cheap, less than 10 bucks normally ,, I'd just replace it

We have all of the power when we turn key. wont turn motor.


On the firewall Ford has a starter solenoid. Follow your battery positive cable from battery to solenoid. There will be 1 wire attached to the solenoid. Have someone turn key to start position not run and with test light check for power at the wire. If power present solenoid is bad.

Are the brakes ABS all around? 8 cylcinder two wheel drive. Does anyone know?


IT DEPENDS ON THE OPTIONS THAT CAME WITH THE VEHICLE. IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT IF THEY ALL HAVE ABS THEN LOOK ON THE BACK OF EACH WHEEL FOR A WIRE THAT GOES TO THE CENTER OF THE HUB SOMEWHERE. THAT WIRE GOES TO A RELUCTOR WHEEL THAT MEASURES VEHICLE SPEED AT EACH WHEEL. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

My 96 ford explorer power window will not work


TRY CHECKING THE SWITCH. WITH A TEST LIGHT, THERE WILL BE A WIRE THAT IS HOT. WHEN YOU PRESS THE WINDOW BUTTON, SEE IF ONE OF THE OTHER WIRES GET POWER TO IT. IF YOU GET A WIRE THAT LIGHTS UP ON THE BACK OF THE SWITCH WHEN YOU PUSH THE BUTTON, THEN THAT MEANS THE SWITCH IS WORKING AND THE MOTOR NEEDS TO BE CHANGED. IF ONE OF THE OTHER WIRES DON'T GET POWER THEN THE SWITCH IS BAD. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA.
