You can as long as the tag id's match and engine but it should fit anyway the 03 trans is a 5R55 and so is the 05 but you must be sure by checking the door post tag for the trans code

If the theft light is flashing with the proper key in the ignition then either the chip in the key is bad or the transceiver on the ignition cylinder is faulty. The PATS system is built into the PCM.

If it is the factory system that needs to be reset, unfortunately you will need a Ford IDS, which most large shops have or your local Ford dealer. If it is the aftermarket alarm system that needs resetting, then you need and authorized dealer of that alarm system.

It's a dual relay and it's above the fuse box inside but try turning on whichever works turn/4ways to here it clicking if not go to rockauto.Com and look up your vehicle and then go to the electrical section to see what it looks like skirted or non skirted also go to ford owners.Com and download the owners manual then go to roadside emergencies and your fuse box diagrams and fuse values are there and the relays location also check your bulbs to if one filament is blown and there 2 in each the signals brake lights and 4 ways work off one and the regular tail/parking lights work off the other

Teresa: Your not really shorting the start. Whomever is doing it is bypassing the starter Selinoid. The Selinoid is bad and it is part of the starter. Replace the starter and your problem should be fixed.
Hope this helps you.

The PCV valve is located 60 degrees from the driver side. Under the intake manifold coming off the center. Just about a blocks length of distances there is a Z-connector running down the side of the firewall cover. Once you locate the rear motor arm move directly down (horizontally) to the female extender. Open the cover and press lightly with strong mussels on the clamp hoses. Release the rear bumper and jiggle the left arm firmly until the latch reconnects. Disconnect the latch again. The PCV valve should be in plain sight now. It's nearly impossible to local on a rainy day and just as easy when the suns outs puns outs. The Dealership swears the Part # Z-SPARTA1 fits the 2011 models, however, check with your local emissions office to ensure road safety compatibility.

THERE IS A BRAKE PRESSURE SWITCH MOUNTED ON THE MASTER CYLINDER. IF THE ABS LIGHT IS ON AND THE CRUISE CONTROL IS INOP. THE SWITCH OR WIRING TO THE SWITCH IS BAD. THERE SHOULD BE VOLTAGE IN AND OUT OF THE SWITCH IF ONLY POWER IN AND NO POWER OUT THE SWITCH IS BAD. ALSO CHECK FUSE #45 IN THE UNDER HOOD FUSE BOX TO SEE IF ITS GOOD. HOPE THIS HELPS.

There should be an instrument panel fuse in the fuse box located inside the car. Check the fuse and replace in needed.

You can go through either the dealership or a locksmith. Usually the dealership will be more expensive, and the locksmith will come to you a lot of times, but that can get spendy, too. If you can get the door open, the cheapest way to do it would be to take the actual lock out of the door and bring it in to the locksmith. I know that this way costs around 15 bucks.

No ,not tunex . Qualified repair shop . Code's stored in 4X4 control module. Need a factory or some other professional scan tool to read code's .
SECTION 308-07A: Transfer Case - General Information 2000 Explorer/Mountaineer Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Procedure revision date: 06/17/1999 Transfer Case -Automatic Four Wheel Drive (A4WD) The A4WD system is an electronic shift 4x4 system that allows the operator to choose between three different 4x4 modes. The operator can switch between A4WD and 4WD HIGH modes at any speed. To engage or disengage LOW range, the vehicle speed must be less than 5 km/h, the brake depressed, and the transmission must be in NEUTRAL.
The front/rear driveshaft speed sensors (Hall effect) are mounted to the transfer case and detect the speed of the front and rear driveshafts. This input is used by the generic electronic module (GEM) primarily to control A4WD operation.
The throttle position output signal is provided to the GEM from the powertrain control module (PCM). This signal is used by the GEM in controlling the A4WD clutch.
The shift motor sense plate, an integral part of the electric shift motor, informs the GEM to the position of the transfer case.
The digital TR sensors are located on the LH side of the transmission; these sensors inform the GEM when the transmission is in the neutral position.
The electric shift motor is mounted externally at the rear of the transfer case. It drives a rotary cam which moves the mode fork and range fork within the transfer case between the HIGH range (A4WD, 4HIGH) and LOW range positions.
The 4x4 shift motor uses a module containing two relays which, under the control of the GEM, shifts the transfer case shift motor between HIGH range (A4WD, 4HIGH), and 4LOW modes.
The solid state clutch relay is used to activate the A4WD clutch within the transfer case.
System Function
Hall effect sensor monitors input and output shaft speed.
In the A4WD (C-Trac) system, the GEM varies the torque sent to the front driveline by controlling the transfer case clutch. At rest and under cruising conditions, the GEM activates the transfer case clutch a minimum duty cycle (percentage of time the clutch is turned on), which allows for the slight difference between the front and rear driveshafts which normally occurs when negotiating a corner on dry pavement. Under any of the following conditions, the GEM will increase the duty cycle in order to prevent or control slip:
  • Slip is detected (by using the Hall Effect Sensors)
  • Heavy acceleration (throttle position).
Feature inputs:
  • Brake ON/OFF switch.
  • 4WD mode switch.
  • Digital transmission range sensor.
  • Clutch switch (manual transmission vehicles only).
  • Vehicle speed signal (transmitted from the ABS module).
  • Front/rear driveshaft speed sensors.
  • Throttle position information from the PCM.
  • Contact plate position inputs A, B, C, D.
Feature outputs:
  • Solid state clutch relay (pulse width modulated signal: grounded when relay is on, battery potential when relay is off).
  • A4WD indicator (ground when activated, open circuit when deactivated).
  • 4x4 shift motor relay outputs.
Shifts between A4WD and 4x4 HIGH can be made at any speed. Listed below are the inputs and outputs needed by the GEM to execute a change between any of these modes.
Feature inputs:
  • Front/rear driveshaft speed sensor.
  • Vehicle speed signal.
  • Throttle position information.
  • 4WD mode switch.
Feature outputs:
  • Solid state clutch relay (pulse width modulated signal; grounded when relay is on, battery potential when relay is off).
  • 4x4 HIGH cluster indicator (ground when activated, open circuit when deactivated).
When shifting into or out of LOW range, the GEM requires that the vehicle speed is less than 5 km/h (3 mph), the brake is applied, and the transmission is in NEUTRAL.
Feature inputs:
  • Throttle position information.
  • 4WD mode switch.
  • Contact plate position inputs A, B, C, D.
  • Vehicle speed signal (transmitted from ABS module).
  • Brake ON/OFF switch input (battery voltage when brake is depressed, open circuit when not activated).
  • Digital transmission range sensor (ground when transmission is in NEUTRAL, open circuit otherwise).
  • Start/clutch depressed input (manual transmission only).
Feature outputs:
  • 4x4 shift motor relay outputs.
  • 4LOW cluster indicators (ground when activated, open circuit when deactivated).
  • Solid state clutch relay (pulse width modulated signal; grounded when relay is on, battery potential when relay is off).

Did you have the vehicle scanned for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's ? Have engine scan data checked ? Does it have electronic throttle control ? Do you know what that is ?
