Question about 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

I changed the battery in my 2004 Ford Sport Trac and now none of the dash instruments, interior lights, power windows, or radio work. All these things were working prior to changing battery. I have checked all the fuses.

    My vehicle is a 2004 Ford Sport Trac 2WD drive with a 4.0L SOHC engine. There is no power to the fuel gauge, to the water temp gauge, to the instrument panel lights, to the radio, to the power windows, or to the interior dome light. All of the problems are to things in the cab of the vehicle. The audible warnings do not sound (like door ajar or lights on after the switch is turned off. The fuses have been checked. The battery is good. The vehicle cranks and runs fine. All this occurred after changing a the battery.

I would recheck the battery connections to make sure they are shiny and new looking before hooking them back up to the battery.

This is a common problem for not getting any function.

I would double check that the fuses in both the 'battery junction box' and the 'central junction box' are checked out with a fuse tester.

If that's still not the problem, then I would check for broken wires under the hood or under the dash.

Chassis Electrical Wire & Connector Repair Almost anyone can replace damaged wires, as long as the proper tools and parts are available. Wire and terminals are available to fit almost any need. Even the specialized weatherproof, molded and hard shell connectors are now available from aftermarket suppliers.
Be sure the ends of all the wires are fitted with the proper terminal hardware and connectors. Wrapping a wire around a stud is never a permanent solution and will only cause trouble later. Replace wires one at a time to avoid confusion. Always route wires exactly in the same position as from the factory.
NOTE: If connector repair is necessary, only attempt it if you have the proper tools. Weatherproof and hard shell connectors require special tools to release the pins inside the connector. Attempting to repair these connectors with conventional hand tools will damage them.

The BCM or body control module control all of the things you mentioned. The fuse for it should be under the hood. On the driver side. You should have a fuse labeled BCM./ Make sure that it is good. Hopefully you didn't burn the BCM up. I have never heard of burning it up by changing the battery unless you hooked the cables up wrong.

Hi! You may have a faulty PCM (powertrain control module). The PCM has connectivity on all electrical current that runs inside the car including the engine, transmission, accessories, etc. Have a PCM replacement and you'll be good. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

How to I disable the airbag on my 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac so I can change out the cruise control buttons?


Remove RCM fuse from dash panel fuse box. Fuse F2.10 10 amps. Turn key onfor 30 seconds and see that Air Bag light is lit. Now disconnect battery negative cable for 1 minute, leave disconnected while service is done. now the air bag is disabled. To repower the system turn key on, insert fuse. connect battery, now turn key off for 10 seconds, then turn key on and watch the air bag light. it should go on then after the air bag module is happy that everything is ok, it will turn off.

2004 Ford Sport Trac will not start when you turn the key ..the lights flicker on the inside of the truck we changed the battery car is sitting idle in the driveway


If the new battery is fully charged, then you have a poor connection on one of the large wires going from the battery to the engine/starter. Or possibly the starter itself.

2004 Explorer Sport Trac, windows, dash, and radio not working.


You better check your owner's manual because many cars have 2-3 different fuse boxes, make sure that that is not your case, because what you're saying sounds like a fuse issue/blown fuse....Please don't take me wrong.... is just a possibility.

2004 FORD EXPLORER SPORT TRAC POWER WINDOWS AND RADIO WONT WORK, CHECKED FUSES THATS NOT THE PROBLEM


Look in the owners manual and see if they have a circuit breaker or relay instead of a fuse. It could be bad and you would not see it.

Windows will not operate on my 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac


window relay module probably went bad. theres a window relay under the dash you have power . try getting a wiring diagram mabey at an auto parts store or the library. so you can trace the problem down . short of taking the doors apart and checking the motors that drive the windows . Old fix with the old school cars bang on the doors from the inside with fist . it sometimes works the connections on the old school cars . Its stupid but it worked to get the window up .
