The only central connecting point for all these systems is the ECM. I mean it is possible you have a vacum leak on the cruise control system causing a problem and then a short or blown fuse that would effect the door locks and finally a bad solenoid in the trans all at once but I would look at the ECM. Now, if the Trans has been acting up, the 4X4 not working, for a while it is possible that it is just that bad Solenoid in the transmission. I would check the ECM first then move to the Transmission.

I have a 1994 XLT Ford Explorer, was running fine with no transmission problems. Parked vehicle during snow storm about two days later I got into the vehicle to move it again, put the vehicle into...


That don't sound good. If you shut the engine off and restart it, is the grinding noise still there? If you engaged it with wheels spinning there's a good possibility the you broke something inside trans or transfer. If you did that with engine idling, I find it hard to believe anything would break. As far as it not moving it could be something as simple as the brake pads are frozen to the rotors (cold weather). I guess it's possible you have the transfer case jammed somehow, but that doesn't explain the grinding noise in the trans. The park pawl is in the transmission, so when the trans is in park the only thing turning is the input shaft and maybe a clutch drum or two. The output shaft should be held still by the park pawl. If you have a push button on the dash to engage the 4X4, that means it's done with an electric motor, it's possible that motor failed. You could try pushing the vehicle by hand a little maybe you jar it loose.
I guess I'm not much help, sorry.

92 Explorer 4x4 won't engage


It could be the shift motor assembly needs a little TLC. Check this site out. http://draco.acs.uci.edu/explorer/

But first try the rest button located in the drivers rear qtr panel. Remove the jack access panel and you'll see it up front. It's black with a white button on the bottom. With car running, press reset.


When you rebuild the motor, don't cut the brown wire. Disassamble the connector and the pin slides out the back.

2002 ford explorer 4x4 will not disengage


Not knowing what type of 4wd engagement sytem you have, this is a guess. Maybe vacuum operated, look for a cracked or disconnected hose.

Or do you have manual locking hubs, that have to be turned manually?
