SOURCE: ABS Light / Sensor on 1996 Ford Explorer

the rear one is a single sensor and is located in the top of the rear differential , unplug it and take the retaining bolt out and it pops straight up out of the differential. the front has 1 for each wheel,and is located on the backside of the wheel hub. take the tire off and look on back side of hub it should be the only sensor thare and is anchored with one bolt then just fallow the wire to its disconnect point. this vehicle is known to have problems with the rear sensor so i would replace it first and see if this fixes the problem

Looked up your OBD II code for your Explorer and got the following: Bank 1 Sensor 1
The possible causes are listed below per Chilton: *same result for all engines available on your vehicle

Trouble Code: P0141 (4.0L V6 VIN E Auto)
HO2S-11 Heater Circuit (Bank 1, Sensor 1) Print this code dataprint_icon_codes.gif
Number of Trips to Set Code: 2
OBD II Monitor Type: CCM Details
Indicators: MIL Details
Trouble Code Conditions:
During testing the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) heaters are checked for open and short circuits and excessive current draw. The test fails when the current draw exceeds a calibrated limit or an open or short circuit is detected.
Possible Causes:

  • Vacuum hose disconnected on exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system module (ESM) applications* Short to VPWR in the harness or HO2S
  • Water in the harness connector
  • Open VPWR circuit
  • Open GND circuit
  • Low battery voltage
  • Corrosion or incorrec
The sensors themselves appear in the illustration linked to below. The illustration is for the Ford Ranger but indications are that other models have similar locations. Hope this helps with your problem. Best of luck!

No you don't

You have front or upstrean O2 Sensors before the exhaust
converters & downstream or monitors in the converter outlets

You obviously have wires going to them

I have a 1996 ford explorer and the speedometer only works half the time. What could be the problem?


There is a problem with these electronic speedometers, but 1st have the fault codes read and see if the speed sensor has set a code, if it does have a code for the speed senor replace it, if there is no code for the sensor the speedometer is defective and needs to be removed and send out to a Ford electronics repair center.

1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on


The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......

Speed sensor codes return after replacing the sensor. are their more sensors


I would go to a parts store and ask for the to take a test to it(it is free) schucks does it. Or get it a diagnostics done on it but it would be a good idea.
I was told by more then one mechanic sensors go out, Yes even the brand new ones because what made you replace it the first time may be doing it again to the one you just did.
good luck.

1996 Ford Explorer


your TPS is the fault. The TPS(throttle position sensor) is located on the throttle body and is responsible for your idle speed. when this is faulty the engine speed sensor tells the ecm that the engines is losing rpm and then the ecm tells the fuel pressure regulater to give more fuel so this loads the throttle body up and you basically are flooding the throttle body and that's when ypou get a bog down. change the tps and this will solve it...please rate the solution..........thanks
