Can't get power to foglights on my 2003 Explorer

Likely there is a relay that operates the lights. I believe it is a relay that operates when the on/off switch grounds the relay, kind of like the horn relay. The relay may have lost a connection -- power in wire or ground wire to the on/off switch. Or the power wire into the relay or out to the lights may have become disconnected. Try turning the lights on and off several times in a quiet location and listen for an electrical relay clicking. The under hood fuse/relay block may contain this relay. You'll have to trace wires from there until you find the lost connection, or bench test the relay with a battery and ohmmeter. Check fuses too. All fuses and relays will be identified in the owners manual or under the fuse block cover. G'luck.

My 03 Explorer will crank but no start. Has spark fuel comes out of schrader valve. RPM gauge doesn't move when turning key to start. Can hear fuel pump come on. Probably over my head but thought I'd ask if anyone knew anything about this or what my next step should be, thanks

No RPM or fuel to the cylinders could be crank position sensor not giving a pulse. The injectors won't pulse without a signal and I believe the RPM counter comes from the same point.

2003 ford explorer no heat and clicking in dash

Clicking sound is your blend door actuator stripping it's gears and failing to open the door that directs the blower air through the heater core. Follow the sound to the actuator and remove it. Install a new one. You may have to remove some panels to get to it. The part is shown below and costs $32 at autozone. Please let me know if you have questions.
