It ended up being the control module for the 4WD. There was no communication between that and the switch. Once I replaced the control module, I had a bad reference from the rear speed sensor on the transfer case. I'm assuming that shorted the module as well. Any way, it all works good now. If anyone is interested in knowing where it is........Directly above your right leg behind the lower access panel to the right. Its a module about 3" by 2" grey in color.

If the fuse is OK, check if you have power at the horn, if yes, replace the horn, if not check the switch or wire. make sure you have a good ground too.

The windows in my 1998 ford explorer dont work all the time and i cant find the relay fuse or any fuse for the windows where is it?

Hi there:
CHeck in Passenger Fuse Panel (early drive side dashboard / will need open drive door) and look position 12, 7.5A for Power Window Relay, Washer Pump Relay.

Also, could be a problem with the power windows switch, harnesses, wires or ground connections.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My Ford Explorer Sport 1998 4wd 4ltr stopped in traffic. When I press the gas the engine revs however the driveshaft is not engaging and the vehicle will not move in any gear. I even tried putting it into...

It seems like this 98 is well known for this, i have a 98 as well and never had this problem YET? god i shouldnt have said it. but in my fuse cluster on the side of dash inside behind drivers door is a fuse in the 26 th position (10 A) that says its the electronic shift relay,electronic shift control module,power window relay,interior lamp relay,battery saver relay. CHECK THIS FUSE, also pos 27, ( 15A) it says DLR,back-up lamp switch,DTR sensor, GEM, (generic electronic module) ELECTRIC SHIFT. check this fuse also. Under the hood by the battery there is another fuse box inside there is a "POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE' I dont know what this is but it says what it says, it is located in the # 6 position and is a 10a fuse...." Be careful if you rev the gas as if it does engage you could do damage to drivtrain, also if someone is under,in front of or behind the vehicle and engages " POSSIBLE DEATH or SEVERE INJURIES could occur. Be safe and good luck
