    Angelo, what you just described is for retrieving the keyless entry code, but I am trying to locate the engine computer module so that I can replace it on my vehicle. Do you know where that is located?

The engine computer module.Its also called ECM. The engine computer module is located behind the trim panels on the rear passenger side pillar, just below where the outboard seat belt shoulder harness exits. These top trim piece can be removed by hand.A long flathead screwdriver can be used to press the release on the lower panel. The black computer module is just below the release with a white label. The plastic panels just snap back in place. In the second row seating in your 2004 exp, sit directly behind the front passenger seat, to your right at your right shoulder is the seat belt retracter, 10 to 12 inches below the retracter and behind the lower panel you will find your module. Pull the top panel off, it goes up in front of the rear right side window, now pull the lower panel out and away, you will see the module in all it's glory. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

The most important step is disconnect the battery. Then you should be able to unbolt the computer and unplug the computer.

    I am sorry. I just thought that you wanted to know how to remove it. I am pretty sure that it is on the passenger side fender-well under the hood. Right above the passenger tire.

Hi. The module is located behind the trim panels on the rear passenger side pillar, just below where the outboard seat belt shoulder harness exits. These top trim piece can be removed by hand. The bottom piece can be pulled out far enough to see the code attached to the module. A long flathead screwdriver can be used to press the release on the lower panel. The black computer module is just below the release with a white lable. The five numbers for the keyless entry code are in bold on the lable. The plastic panels just snap back in place.

I have replased my battery and alternator and my battery light and service engine soon wont turn off it a 2004 ford explorer 4.0 sohc


When the Check Engine light comes on that means that the computer in your Explorer has set Diagnostic trouble codes and stored them in the computers memory.After all repairs are made to all D.T.C. The codes need to be erased from your computer, this resets the Check Engine Light, and it should not come on again untill the computer finds another falt.Good Luck.

The idle air control (IAC) valve on my 4.0 L OHV is on the driver's side of the engine mounted on the side of the upper "plastic" intake manifold.
Removing the valve and CLEANING it does wonders for its operation ability.

I had a Knocking sound under the hood of my 2004 Ford explored and now the truck won't turn over when I start-up.what could it be?


Knocking sound is either generated by a broken part spinning inside your engine or fuel detonations. 
Both can do a lot of damage and destroy your engine, both must be fixed by removing the engine to be overhauled so this is a job strictly for a shop, and both will be expensive.

The check engine light will represent fault codes that the computer is sensing. Have a mechanic, or go to your local auto parts superstore and have them scan for the fault codes. This will at least give you an idea about some of your problems.
