#6369 of 6385 swamped explorer
May 31, 2012 (8:23 pm)
I recently swamped my 2000 4.0L SHOC explorer. I have removed all the water, dried all the electrical components, and replaced the spark plug wires. But it still dose not want to start, and if it dose start it has no power to move when in gear. Anyone know what else might be wrong?

If you recently changed the tires they could be the wronge size. I had that problem with my 2003 for explorer put the proper size tire and it was good as knew.

i've had similiar problems with ALL 4 WINDOWS, but in my case i can hear the power window motors running, the glass just does not move. can get stuck either up or down. obviously a design flaw. ANYBODY HAVE ANY MODIFICATIONS I CAN DO TO REPAIR , I'M SURE I'LL FIGURE OUT SOMETHING eventually, but a push in the right direction would sure be appreciated. ziggypiggy

I had this alarm problem. It turned out to be the connectors at the top of the rear hatch. Open the rear hatch, pull the trim panel down at the top area to expose two connectors. These connectors twist each time the hatch is opened. If contact is lost due to temperature changes, wind, etc, the alarm sounds. They can be tightened by gently squeezing the female side of the connector with pliers. CAREFUL NOT TO OVER DO IT. Lube the connectors with electrical grease and reinstall. Mine drove me bonkers before I figured it out. Good luck

Hi, I was wondering if you knew how I could go about fixing a leak from the rear left side window? The seal looks tight, but rain is getting in like crazy. Thanks.
#6376 of 6385 SHIFT INDICATOR LIGHT
Dec 19, 2012 (10:45 am)
I have a Ford Explorer 2006, the light on the shift indicator is not working, this is where you see the P R N D 1 2 3. Can anyone tell me please, on which fuse the light is connected to. I tried to check the light bulb and it seems okay, so I guess it might be a busted fuse. Thanks!

the fuse box for that is under the dashboard (steering Wheel) if u check the manual u will be able to identify the fuse.They all have a specific number and spot. Good Luck
