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!

#6379 of 6385 Difficulty in filling gas
Feb 05, 2013 (10:20 am)
I have a Ford Explorer 2006,everything has been fine until recently, when I started having trouble filling up the gas tank. The gas pump keeps stopping – every 30 seconds or so – while I’m trying to fill it. I thought it was the nozzle that had a problem, but after trying with other gas stations, it was still the same.
Any ideas/help please...why does the gas pump nozzle keep turning off??

Couple of things- be sure that the tanks is not actually full. Just be sure the gauge is not faulty.
That said, there is a check valve in the filler neck that must open to let fuel be added. There is a bypass hole so some gas will go down the filler tube but slowly. Remember your chemistry here and do not poke a screw driver down the neck to open the valve. Sparks are not your friend here. However, you may use a section of stiff hose or other rubber product to loosen the check valve or determine if something is blocking the tube.
If your are not familiar with working around gasoline fumes, then please use a garage to replace the check valve.
Let me know what you find!
