My 2003 ford explorer xlt hazard indicators on the dash light up when the heater or headlamps are turned on and the truck won't shift out of park until they are turned off.


Power back feed through the electrical systems ,maybe . Looking at a wiring diagram to see if these share a body ground point would be the thing to do. Do you know anything about automotive electrical circuit's ? What the difference is from B+ voltage side of the circuit and the ground side . Do you know what a wiring diagram is ,how to read one ? Scanner wouldn't show anything in these cases . Testing the electrical circuits for the affected systems is the only way .

Battery light flashing


The battery light on, is an indication of alternator failure. If your battery is more than 3 years old it needs replacement . A bad battery can damage a new alternator (full field condition). The age of your truck warrants inspection of the charging system. It requires at Least 20 amps output, from the alternator to run the engine.

Sounds like your flasher relay is broken. A lot of people think that because their hazard flashers work that everything is OK, this isn't so. Hazard flashers are on a seperate system, and as such they have their own relay.
You will need to find where your indicator relay is located and replace it with the correct type.

to be sure let the engine cool down then check the coolant level if is low than normal put some until reach the normal level then start the truck dont drive it on the road in five minutes or less will be hot enough to creat pressure on the cooling sistem check for leaks around the engine if the weather is too cold some steam will come out from the exaust pipe and some times a little bite of water from the butom of the moufler but dont have to be antifrezz if is coolat coming from the exaust sistem beter tow the truck is cheaper to change a cilinderhead gasquet than the engine good luck

OD off Light Flashing on my 1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 V


The OD light is flashing to alert u to the fact that some kind of fault has occured in the transmission, the problem is in many cases a slipping condition, you need to have the trans control system tested for the trouble codes that are stored when this light flashes, this will let u know what the problem is and a direction to follow to repair it.
