1991 to 1995 Explorers have a conventional speedometer cable

with a drive gear that is driven by the transmission on 2 wheel

drive or the transfer case on 4 wheel drive.

1996 and newer have an electronic speedometer with a vehicle speed

sensor that connects to the transmission or transfer case.

2000 and newer the VSS is combined with the rear axle sensor

located on top of the differential.

I believe that 1995 was the last year for a conventional speedometer cable on a Ford Explorer , and then Ford went to an electronic speedometer with a vehicle speed sensor

The odometer on a 96 Ford Explorer is tied into the speedometer. If the speedometer is working then there is a gear problem inside of the speedometer causing the odometer to not work.

There is no speedometer cable on that vehicle. The speedometer is driven electronically.

There is no cable its electronic speed sensor

Follow the speedometer cable to where it connects to the engine, the cable is the dipstick.

I pretty sure it doesn't have a speedometer cable, it is electronic.

Wherever the fuel filter on a 96 ford explorer is

Maybe a broken cable The needle on the speedometer of the 96 aspire is still moving, but it acts like it is out of control.

there i no cable it is controlled by the vss{vhecile speed sensor} speedomoder is controlled by the vs or vehicle speed sensor

Sounds like your speedometer cable is going out. If it's one of the ones that has the computer attached and does NOT have an actual cable.....it could be that computer. Some cases may cause to have to buy the whole instrument panel because it's all one piece. That's what happened to my ford explorer.

how to disconnect the factory alarm system on a 96 ford explorer

No , 1995 was a redesign , so 1991 to 1994 would be more compatible

a 96 Taurus dosent have a racknpinion it has a gear box strearing system...im not shure it it would fit in the explorer due to i never ownd a x plorer ....

A 1996 Ford Explorer XLT would be just under ( 16 feet in length )

It's in the back of the alternator

I'm not a mechanic / technician but I believe the answer is ( no ) From what I have read there are ( 3 ) different engine blocks for the Ford 4.0 OHV engine ( 1991 to 1994 Ford Explorer ) ( 1995 and 1996 Ford Explorer ) ( 1997 to 2000 Ford Explorer )

Underneath the Explorer , below the drivers door , mounted on the frame rail

The 1993 Ford Explorer used an A4LD automatic transmission and the 1996 Ford Explorer 4.0 L - V6 uses a 4R55E electronically controlled transmission , so I would say no
