Question about 2002 Ford Explorer

2 Answers

My 2002 Explorer starts, but then won't re-start...

My 2002 Explorer will start, then I can drive it for a while, but then I will try to start it again after making a quick stop, and it won't start up for me. If I let it sit for a few hours, it will start up again. It seems to happen on warm days, and only happens every now and then. Any thoughts?

    The fuel pump was a suggestion from a friend, as well. The transmission has yet to give me any problems, but there was an excessive fuel smell when I was able to start it up the next morning (with this last incident). Thanks for the help...taking it down to a shop in the morning.

2000 explorer won't start cranks OK, drove it to the store with no problems got back in won't turn over to start.


Try some starting fluid, if it wants to run then you need to check the Inertia switch. The location of this switch is behind the passengers foot kickpanel.

There is a Reset button that you push and it will reconnect the fuelpump. Please rate my info. You can try the Reset without testing with starting fluid but the fluid verifies fuel starvation as the problem.

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start


Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

My 2002 ford explorer wont start. lights come on


first thing to check is the battery and the connections at the battery. if all this checks ok then you should try and look at the fuses for the ignition system. this should get you going in the right direction.
