Ford Explorer - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I would try unplugging the connector to the ABS Module
You will have dash lights on, but can use the truck,the brakes
will work,you just won't have ABS
Then plug it back in
If you still have a MIL lamp
You go to a shop,different one & not a dealer,& ask them to scan for codes in Enhanced Mode & just look at the ABS System Codes/Faults
Then Google the issue, or look at the shops data base, for
the proper way to diagnose.
To say entire system-- is just you not knowing what is going
on, or what your told,need to be more involved & ask
more questions & get people to show you & prove to you,
how they come to any conclusion or fix.
I found the B1342 code is used for different systems,
which is odd, & different vehicles,so be careful your looking
at the correct vehicle,application etc on the internet
At a shop with the scan tool your looking into the vehicles
system & can't get that wrong
Just know that codes do not mean a part failed
Component testing for failure is required
At very least do voltage drops on power & ground
side of any module, using a wiring diagram, before
throwing electronic parts at something & get it wrong

Your vehicle has a front heat / A/C an a rear auxiliary heat / A/C system . If heat or A/C isn't blowing from the front vents the blower motor could be bad or blower motor resistor . Video's on youtube showing how to test blower motor electrical circuit an how to replace .

Sounds like rear wheel speed sensor located in rear differential on top, easy fix, just replace it.

Need to have full coolant in the system for it to read properly. Once you have this, check the temperature gauge, if it is still reading incorrectly, use an accurate thermometer and test the hot coolant to see that it is the proper temperature or close to it. If not, change the thermostat.

If you are losing coolant look for obvious leaks. If none are seen, look at your oil to see if it is foamy or contains coolant. if it does, then you probably need new head gaskets.

If not, look at the exhaust, if it is white, then you probably need new head gaskets.

If the coolant is coming out the overflow and the cooling system seems too high pressure, then you probably need new head gaskets.

Sounds like the blend door. Unfortunately it is under the center of the dashboard. When you get to the point where you are removing the lower plastic framework under the dash, just cut the plastic between the two screws under the driver's side bottom, that way you do not have to remove the entire dashboard.

There is usually a setting in the computer interface. You must be stopped to change the setting.

It likely has a sticky value in the trany. You can buy an adittive called trany medic, but I use a half a cup of acetone it works better.
I have used it in Chevy and Dodges it works great for me!

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE WHEN THEY SAY THEY DO NOT INTERCHANGE EXACTLY

Ford Explorer... | Answered on Dec 17, 2018


For 2006 up it is none of the above. The problem is a little $5 switch on the right side of the shifter. If you take the console cover off from around the shifter and look at the right side while you step on the brake and squeeze the shifter button you will see a horizontal pin slide up and down. There is also a solenoid that pushes a plastic piece out of the way of the pin. Ford insists on charging you for a whole new shifter assembly insted of replacing the little switch. They knew the switches were bad and gave you an access hole in the console to get to it with a long skinny screwdriver. Look under the rubber bottom piece of the cup holder and you will see a small square hole to stick the screwdriver in to get the switch to manualy release.

For the 2008 Ford Explorer ONLY (SUV). Look under the steering wheel. There is a black fuse box near emergency brake pedal. You will need a flashlight and a dental mirror (very tight space. Look between the lower lid of the box on the slim space to the left side. Take your time, you will see a bar code and 5 above it...That's it! I found mine that way. If you are laying on your back looking up, it's the gap above your right shoulder.GOOD LUCK!
