SOURCE: Automatic Gear Shift Stuck in Park 2004 Ford Explorer Sportrac

Common problem with vehicles equiped with shift locks. Check to see if ur brake lights work. If not the brake switch may have a blown fuse or may be defective. The brake switch actuates a solenoid @ the gear selector alowing you to shift the transmission. This is a fedral safety standard so someone can not 1: steal your truck, 2: accidently shift into N. and so on. Good luck and God Bless. If I can be of any further assistance please e-mail me.

Common problem on 2001 Ford Explores. The reason why your door handle doesn't unlock the door(can't be unlocked by remote either)is due to a broken spring located on the backside of the door handel INSIDE the door. True that your one(or two) of your small exterior springs on your door handle are broken(will cause your handle to flap) but this IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM. The door locks will work if there is a bit of tension holding the handle bracket up. I know it's hard to explain without pics. but here's the ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS. It's not that hard.......... Remove the door panel, only a few screws and a few more holding trim around exit handle then, pull out "snap in" clips on bottom. With a flashlight you'll see back side of door handle. To get to that area you'll have to remove one bolt holding a window frame. Do that(with window in up position) then slide down rail, out of your way. Now, get back to handle. With your light aimed at the backside of handle left slowly the door handle as normal, and you'll realize(while looking at the mechanism) that tension(pulling down of bracket) needs to occur in order for locks(manual and remote)to work properly. Trust'll figure it out. Once you do, get a spring(pen spring, 30 cent hardware store spring, any small spring!) and hook one end to bracket and the other end to ANYTHING(OUT OF THE WAY) below the door handle thus, causing SLIGHT tension. Try your locks...THEY WILL WORK! YEAH! Replace that one window frame bolt(try your window...just the make sure), replace door panel and your done. TOTAL COST: 30 cents or FREE(if you have a small spring) Ford dealers will charge $150 to $285! Yikes!

The older Ford Explorers have the KE module behind the trim panel, drivers side, rear. Open the little access panel to get to the jack. Look (with a flashlight) forward behind the panel and you will see a small black plastic box (keyless entry module), I think mine was about (8"X6"), there is a sticker on it that has the original factory code. YOu might be abel to see it but will probably need ot remove a couplr of phillips screws and plastic retainer clips to pull he lanel out a bit.No matter what the code is changed to, that default will always work. I had to partially remove the whole panel in order to read mine, just a few screws though.
I found reprogramming instructiions by searching Google, that way you can have your own code and the default still works as a back up.

Key(s) added or replaced. System malfunction.
Obtain all keys fitted with remote control. Turn ignition switch from position 0 to position II 4 times within 6 seconds. Turn ignition switch to position 0. The system will emit an acoustic signal to indicate start of programming mode. Programming mode activated for 10 seconds proceed as follows: Press and hold lock, unlock or boot release button Fig. 1 [1], [2] or [3]. Wait for acoustic signal (indicates correct programming). Repeat above procedure within 10 seconds to program remaining keys. To exit programming mode: Turn ignition switch to position III or wait 10 seconds. Keys can also be programmed using diagnostic equipment.
NOTE: A maximum of 4 keys can be programmed

Ford Explorer Sportrac 2001. some kind of oil leaking from the backend in the middle of the back tires.just wondering what it was and how to fix it

If the leak is in the middle facing the back of truck most likely the rear end (differential) cover or gasket is leaking. If it is leaking in the front of the rear end it is most likely a rear pinion seal. Spray brake & parts cleaner to clean area. Let it dry & see if it is leaking in the front towards driveshaft or the rear towards rear bumper.

Rear window on my 2001 sportrac will not move. I had itin vent position and tried to close it. nothing happend , put it in open position and it went to full open. will not move from open position. whats...

More than likely, the motor that moves it failed. You should see if you have voltage at the motor wire harness while "opening" or "closing" the window to verify this.

Need instructions to remove rear rotors.seem to be stuck or theres something im missing.2003 ford sportrac

Remove the wheels. Remove the two retaining bolts that hold the pads in place. Slide the pads off the rotors by lifting up and outward on the bracket from the bottom. Sometimes they can be a little stubborn. The reason for this is usually there is a slight ridge on the outer edge of the rotor that they need to slide over because the rotor needs to be turned now.
