#227 of 269 2002 Ford Explorer XLT Electrical Problems
Nov 08, 2011 (6:48 pm)
I have a 2002 ford explorer xlt and when i was driving the suv started to loose power, the rpms wouldnt go over 2000, and it started to loose speed. It would start and drive with difficulty it would only go about ten mph and again the rpms wouldnt go over 2000. After it was towed home it would start and then stall, now it wont even start. I plugged the computer onto the truck and it read cylinder misfires, intake airflow sensor, and mass airflow sensor. I replaced the mass airflow sensor and charged the battery and it made no difference the truck has a full tank of gas and still refuses to turn over. I was told it could possibly be the coil packs or the ignition module. The coil packs are fine but could it be the ignition module and what other possible problems could it have? has anyone had these problems with their explorer? If so how was it fixed? PLEASE HELP I NEED MY TRUCK BACK!

Had the same issue with mine. The exhaust Y pipe with the catalytic converter was the issue. It was not cheap!!!!

Yeah, it sounded to me like the cats were plugged. This will slow the engine right down due to back pressure, the exhaust can't get out of the engine. Check that first.....

Excellent post. I am having the same problem. I can only raise and lower my windows with the door all the way open.
How did you get to the wires inside the boot? Did you cut it off?
I appreciate your help.

Did you get it fixed? I have same issues. Windows worked periodically then quit all together. Interior dome light doesn't work, 4X4 lights flash and will not work. ???

I highly suspect the Body Control Module. It's rare, but if they go bad, this kind of inexplicable stuff happens. What I recommend is a full reboot, which means disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then rehook. If it continues, you may want to pursue that course. It's hard to find, and quite expensive though - I had this problem in an 06, and sold the car. Got a much better 07. I believe the module is behind a plastic panel somewhere in the rear driver's side. Not positive on that.

Yesterday after I started my car and warmed it up, My radio, power windows,interior lights and moonroof stopped working. I checked all fuses and relays. They all seem to be fine. Any ideas out there?

I figured out that it is the wiring harness thats causing my electrical issues. How did you get the boot and wires out? Do I have to remove the door?
