#72 of 106 heated seats....
Feb 19, 2004 (4:25 pm)
maybe there's a problem where mine do not get hot enough; I'll have to ask my service Rep. The manual (2004) says the heater will come on the next time you use the vehicle if you had not shut them off previously. In the summer I won't be turning them on, of course
If they do cycle off, I wouldn't notice since the switch/indicator is on the side of the seat/s near the door where you cannot see it without opening the door.
On my 03 Dodge Ram there is a high/low switch which makes a noticeable difference. It does not shut off automatically but since the indicator is on the dash, it is very visible and can be adjusted as necessary.
#73 of 106 Headlight Low Beam
Jan 12, 2006 (5:02 pm)
Hello I have a 2003 Sport Trac XLT. my question is that drivers side low beam does not work but the high beam does, passenger side headlight works fine low and high. I changed out the bulb on the driver side but it still does the same thing does not come on. the fuse is good since there is only one fuse for the headlights. The dealer wants to charge me $95.00 per hour to do a complete ele. systems check. does anybody out there know what else might be the trouble before I spend this much just to see why the low beam will not work? please post or e-mail thanks

#76 of 106 Moisture in Crankcase
Mar 05, 2006 (9:51 am)
Brought my truck in for an oil change yesterday and they noticed a yellow buildup which is said to be moisture in the crankcase. The guy said it was caused because there wasn't enough airflow to the crankcase. Has anybody else experienced this? What can be done to prevent it from happening in the future?

My truck is a 2005 sport trac for the above moisure in crankcase message.

After 32000mi. on Goodyear Wranglers, I am told by the Ford dealer that all 4 tires are "cupped", accounting for terrible road vibration. This '04 Sportrac Slt had tires rotated & balanced every 5000mi! What gives, Ford!?

I currently have the 2004 sport trac adrenline. It has only 25k miles and I was told at 20k miles that my goodyear wranglers were also "cupped" and this was the reason for the terrible road vibration. I also have had the tires rotated and balance every 5k miles. Today at the 25k checkup they now say that it is a bad ball bearing joint. I say that this has to be a manufacturer defect because its extremly well maintained and not driving hard/off road. Any others with this same issue??

Have '04 Sport Trac that I bought from a dealer with 4K miles on it & had tires rotated at 5k and then at 10K tires (Goodyear) were cupped. Spoke with Ford Service Manager & then Regional Service Manager for my Ford Dealer, this is my 3rd Explorer . I had Proof of Rotation Sams Club receipts, then a dealers receipt at 10k point.
Regional Manager REPLACED ALL 4 tires at 11K miles as tires were cupped.
This is Goodyear Wrangler problem. They don't make good tires.
Will get BF Goodrich or Michelin once these wear a out at around 60K . These tires do have STIFF Sidewall & are good in Mud & Snow though. Not especially good in rain, have witnessed them Hydroplaning. Wife has 2000 Explorer 4x4 SUV with Michelin LTX that even with 125k on the tires still have 10/32 tread depth & run circles around these tires.
Good Luck , Veteran Explorer user in Central Virginia
