* Remove the screws from the top of the instrument panel. Set the parking brake and pull the shift lever down to improve access. Rotate the instrument panel to gain access to the back. The black bulb holders house the panel lights, the tan bulb holders house the sensor lights. Reach behind and grip the back of one of the holders. Twist it counter clockwise and pull outwards. Burned out bulbs will have a black coating. Replace with an identical bulb (194). * I recommend replacing all bulbs while it is out (they all went in at the same time, they are all likely to burn out about the same time) Check the link below for Auto Zone directions to remove the Instrument Panel

Some Ford models had a external voltage regulator. If yours does, replace it.
According to my Haynes repair manual, 1997 through 2000 Ford Explorer models: have a R-134a capacity of 22 ounces
The cam sensor is located on the top of the engine where older models had a distributor installed. The sensor needs a special tool to be able to remove and replace it.
where is the thermostat and how do you replace it on a 1997 ford explorer? I don't know why this is listed as an answer. Its in the front top of the engine. in the middle, underneath that plastic cover that says SOHC. You'll probably need a universal joint on your extention to remove the 3 bolts holding it in place. (10 mm) One of the big hoses from the radiator connects directly to the plastic housing that surrounds it. Can't miss it.
That seems to be a common problem on the 1998 models. From what I have read, it seems to be bad soldered connections in the radio.
I'm not a mechanic / technician but I don't think so From what I have read there are ( 3 ) different engine blocks for the Ford 4.0 liter OHV / pushrod style V6 engine used in a Ford Explorer ( 1991 to 1994 models ) ( 1995 and 1996 models ) ( 1997 to 2000 models )
Starting with the 1995 models of the Ford Explorer the automatic transmissions were ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED ( so , the answer would be NO )
According to motorcraft . com , the automatic transmission in a 1995 Ford Explorer only is used on the 1995 and 1996 models , so no
In the fuel tank
I would say ( no ) In a Ford Explorer , the 2002 and newer models had a third row seat available . Earlier models were not designed to have a third row seat
That depends on what model year the 4 door Ford Explorer is : 1995 to 2001 models are / or around ( 21 U.S. gallons ) 2002 to 2010 models are , I believe ( 22.5 )
2003 Ford Explorer 4 door models do not have an automatic transmission dipstick , Ford has a way of checking from underneath the Explorer
According to my Haynes repair manual, 1996 and later models do not use a conventional speedometer cable. They use an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor (VSS)
I have never known a Chrysler product to have "driving lights" ("DRL"--- daytime running lights) such as used in GM products. ??I have never known a Chrysler product to have "driving lights ( or daytime running lights -- DRL-- as ther are referred to by Gen Motors)Canadian Models do have them, but not American Models.
The voltage regulator is attached to the back of the alternator with 4 torx screws for the 1991-1995 models non-integral type.
Starting in 2002 , the Ford Explorer 4 door models do not have an automatic transmission dipstick
Unfortunately you didn't mention the year , but I noticed on 2002 through 2005 Ford Explorer 4 door models that fuse # 24 - 15 amp - is listed for cigar lighter , OBD II . I'm just wondering if the fuse is bad ? and if that is the cause of your Explorer not starting ? just guessing
That depends which model it is. On older models CV-joints were moulded into the driveshaft. To be replaced they had to be removed using a press and then warmed to be able to replace them. On these models it is often better to replace the whole driveshaft. On newer models CV-joints are attached with clips and can be replaced more easily.
I have never seen a listing for a diesel Ford Explorer SUV since they started manufacturing them in 1990 as 1991 models in the U.S.A.
In 2001 Ford made F-Series trucks, E-Series vans, Focus, Mustang, Explorer, Ranger, Escape, Expedition, Escort, Crown Victoria, Windstar and Taurus models. Some of the models had more than one version such as the F-Series, Explorer and E-Series.
the bulbs can be accessed in two ways, in older models with the top mounted light above the rear window the screws are through the lens, remove them and replace the bad bulb. On newer models it is inside on the rear window and the trim that covers the light must be removed from inside.
It is your multifunction switch that has gone out. It is located in the steering column. I used my emergency lights and it blew out brake lights, turn signals, and emergency lights. In newer models Chevy did a recall not so for our older models. Mine is a 1995.
* To replace the belt rotate the tensioner counterclockwise on V6 models or clockwise on V8 models to relieve the tension on the belt * Remove the belt from the auxiliary components
All Sport Models hold 16.8 Gallons. All other Models hold 22.5 gallons.
