Question about 1995 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I bought a 2007 ford explorer with 16,000 miles, when I went to get a state inspection sticker, it failed. they told me it was because the battery was disconnected or they replaced the battery. I was told to drive it for a couple of days and bring it back. Something to due with the computer in the car. I don't know the answer.

Apparently the code checker that they use tells them how long the computer has been recieving codes. If the battery has been unplugged recently, they may suspect that you have an engine problem, but the code has not shown up yet. It makes sense because I know of people who disconnect the battery to erase the codes then go get the car checked. One of my friend's engine light came on just after he left the testing station, so, he passed but had an engine problem. Run the car for a couple of days and try again.

My battery went dead after only 16,000 miles- I have the car for 2 years, 6 months. Is there a recall notice out on the charging system or battery used in the Milans. It's a 2007 Milan 6 cyl AWD model


no there is not a recall on your milan, only on the monterey for after market fuel filters. The fact of the matter is they just don't build them like they used to. So Its probably your alternator thats the number one probable cause.. hope this helps and god bless.

Obd not ready won't pass inspection


It usually takes more than one drive cycle to clear all monitors to "ready".The vehicle may take multiple "from cold" drive cycles and hundreds of miles to clear all.Drive normally with varied driving and include long coasting down stops.Buy a cheap scan tool ($35) and check monitors as you drive.
DO NOT CLEAR CODES or run the battery dead or you will have to start over!

2007 FORD SPORTS TRAC BATTERY KEEPS DYING


180 milli-amps is way to much draw,ford's limit is 50 milli-amps but typically we usually only see around 20-30. Now when you say fuse 2 is that in the under-hood fuse panel or the interior fuse panel? And if this vehicle is a 2007 it may still be under factory warranty which was 36 months or 36000 miles providing that the add on automatic starter is not causing your draw.Which in that case the people who installed it should be responsible for that.
