Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
The only power source for that light comes from the dimmer switch.
(when the fuse is in) The switch is located in the steering colum by
the turn sig. switch. To get at it remove the access panel. lower dash
under the colum. Next there is a two piece cover around the shift lever
and turn signal lever.There are two screws in the bottom cover remove
them. Now you have access to the dimmer switch. About 8 out of 10 times there is a piece of plastic brokeen off. But check for power out.
With a 12v test light check for wire with constant 12v in there should be
no power out till the lever is pulled. You will probably get voltage from
the smaller gauge wire out. If it's broken plastic and you can fix it great,
if not pick up a new dimmer switch. I hope I have been of some help.
