2003 ford explore no front heat

I switch to heat and can hear it trying to close the damper, but all it does is keep on clicking, like a relay pulling in and out. The rear heat works great.

Common problem , blend door actuator motor , plastic teeth and they strip a tooth , very common and the giveaway is the clicking sound , replace it or have it replaced . call parts store or ford and get price , they may want the number on the original one . happy motoring .

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.

Where fuel box for fuel pump

? If you mean the Power Relay box, they are usually under the hood and there is a fuel pump relay. If you mean the "Inertia switch" which disconnects fuel pump power, it can be either behind the front kickpanels or behind a cover panel in the rear cargo area. If you have Air-ride, they like to put the Inertia switch close to it. There is a reset button on the Inertia switch.

2003 Ford Explorer wiper stays on after vehicle is turned off

Every wiper motor has a switch built into it that is supposed to shut off the wiper when it reaches it's 'home' position. Apparently that is getting stuck. If you're brave you can try taking it a apart and check it out, otherwise you probably need a new motor.

IF you can,try to unclog the spray nozzles on the hood of truck with a paperclip.

IF you can not hear the motor its possibly a fuse.

Linc Navigator Moonroof Stuck Open

I had the same problem with mine. 2003 Navigator, and the moonroof would open but wouldn't close. When hitting the switch to "open" you'd hear a click, but no sound when trying to close it. So I popped that console down off the ceiling, pulled out the harness for that switch, and figured out which wires to jump to close it.
