SOURCE: 2006 Ford Explorer "Oil Change Required" light is still on after changing the oil


Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.

SOURCE: 2006 Ford Explorer XLT the Blower Fan only works on 4 and 3 Sp

Look under the dash on passenger side and just to the left of the blower motor housing you will see the 4WD control module.Remove the 2 screws holding the module and let it hang down and your resistors are behind this.Remove the 2 screws holding the resistors and remove.
Now I am assuming you have manual climate control and not electonic.

Depends on the case. Was the fluid that you drained red or blue? If it was red, ATF. It was blue then Autotrac, The auto 4 wheel drive model require Autotrac.

SOURCE: when should you replace the speed control sensor

it is not a speed control sensor it is a speed sensor. it needs replacing when it fails. the problems to look for from it failing would be intermittent or no speedometer or cruise control kicking in and out. these sensors do not fail very often they are just a prox switch picking up metal tabs on a ring as they pass by the end of the sensor

Transfer Case oil dirty. What's the problem?

If it has never been changed or the wrong fluid put in it will look dirty. Does it work in all ranges okey? Change it every three years and use correct fluid ,preferably synthetic. Check the level to make sure it isn't coming from the trans due to a bad transfer case seal

Transfer case fluid?

Under the truck at the rear of the transfer case there is a plug, pull it out, you should be able to touch the fluid with your little finger, that will be a level that is just below the fill hole
