How can i pop the ignition to a 1996 explorer

Here's a common way........but I don't have your manual so I can't say it's going to be applicable.
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Find the hole in the steering column cover that is NOT a screwhole to hold the cover,but allows you to access the bottom of the ignition keyswitch.
Turn the igniton switch to the ON position.
Now using a long thin straight metal rod or object,one eighth inch or less diameter,push up thru the hole and you'll feel a springloaded button resist.
When you push this in, the whole tumbler can be pulled out.
Insert the new ignition tumbler and make sure it engages and can't be pulled out.
Turn the keyswitch to LOCK (with your new key in it).Rotate it to make sure you have it right, and then leaving it in the LOCK position,attach your negative battery cable.Your car may run a little funny for a few minutes because you disconnected the battery cable and the computer has to adapt again. don-ohio (:^)

2000 pontiac bonneville how do i reset brain. it runs rough sometimes idles high n shifts funny n i loose all oil pressure on gauge. i think its the vehicles brain just wondering if i can reset it

Normally you clear the codes with a scanner or code reader. You could disconnect the battery and see what happens, but I doubt trying to reset it will help.
Sounds more like a wiring problem or something inside the computer.

I just changed the CMP and the MAP sensor on my car and its still running funny.Do i need to reset the computer so it can read the sensor is new.

i hope you disconnected the neggative terminal on the battery before performing these replacements.after 1996 all cars are obd11 so you must clear all fault codes with a scanner.normally you would have to run the car above 30 miles an hour for 20 -3o minutes for the computer to relearn all systems.

Can you tell me where the crankshaft sensor is located? Would this being bad make it not start sometimes? Sometimes it will start up, other times, not. Sounds like the fuel pump is not running when it...

the crank sensor is behind the crank pulley and must pull off the pulley to gain access to it and it must have the air gap set so the timing slots don`t hit it when the motor is running,this can cause your problem also if the wires rub through by the crank pulley can cause it as say you don`t hear the fuel pump running when it won`t start then you need to make sure that is what is happening as this will cause an intermittent no start(pump works sometimes).do you get a 2 second run pump prime when the key is turned on and a no start then it could be the crank sensor as the computer looks for a crank signal from the crank sensor when trying to start the car.

I have check engine lcode p2187 on my mazda 6 2003

i had the same code....did you resent the ECM? If so then it takes about 40-50 miles for the computer to relearn the new stats of the engine (intake air temp and volume/fuel mix..etc..).
If you need to reset it...just disconnect the battery for 30 mins and then reconnect it. When you start the car back up let it idle 5 mins before you drive. It'll act funny for 30-40 miles then it should run smooth. Let me know if you have more issues. You can also hit us up at or
