Ford has a updated module. They took the clutches out and drained the transmission fluid. I would really like to no what is causing this problem so I don't have to put a lot of money into this dam vehicle. I take care of all my vehicles with the intention of keeping them a long time so it has nothing to do with me maintaining the vehicle. This was not the problem. As we were entering the express way we loss control of the truck only going 28 miles per hour.
We put the 2002 ford explorer in 4x4 drive due to the weather conditions. Car slid backwards into a ravine. I had it to a shop shortly after and they said nothing wrong and charged me to have the computer test run. It took time to receive the parts. The entire rear of the vehicle makes a humming noise so I suspect that a rear bearing is going bad. I then lost 4 wheel drive.
Ford definately has a problem with this the automatic transmissions. My 4x4 problem started after I changed the battery. I have had the entire transmission overhauled and the same parts keep wearing down. The dealership is going to have to program it before it works. This relates to 5th grear not being correct ratio. My explorer exhibited trouble since july'04 and was mfgd. Tires were replaced and problem continued.
He checked the grease in the crank case but levels were fine. What do they want a certain number of deaths or injuries? Complaint Number: 10220005 Incident Date: June 1, 2007 Date Added to File: March 4, 2008 Description of the Complaint: I have an 2002 ford explorer and it only has 81,000 miles and I have had problems with the transmission since it hit 77,000 miles. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. The harness was obsolete so it was partially rebuilt. Not to mention the 4wheel drive system has not worked since I bought it a little over a year ago. It didnt, but she also said the light would not come on. When brought to the dealership after the accident, we were told that the 4 wheel drive electronic monitor had failed and we had no 4 wheel drive.
This all seemed to happen after the battery died, so I replaced the 4x4 module behind the glovebox. But it is a aluminum hood. With a volt meter, I checked to see if voltage was coming to the switch. He checked the grease in the crank case but levels were fine. Accident was avoided due to light traffic this day. Hello, It sounds like either the switch or actuator is bad.
Therefore, no repairs have been made. Now there is an electrical problem coming from the dash. Was told Ford was aware of problems with 2002 model but claimed no responsibility. I cant just buy one and install it myself. Jobwan The battery thing makes a lot of sense on my 02 xls 4x4 problems also.
It costs nearly 3K to replace and parts are only available from dealer. Thanks, Ron Ok lets start with something simple and check number 7 fuse under the dash in the fuse box. Sure we realize that this would cost quite a bit , but if you would design something that does what is promised then this wouldn't cost you anything. After it was towed to the dealership, we were told that a valve had broken and had been sucked into the engine, causing engine failure. I now have to have it towed to a Ford dealer to get it fixed.
While there for free also they can bring their tester out and check your battery and alternator. After a while of trying to get it into gear it would go. I've had intermittent issues with the air bag control module and also the backup alarm system. Complaint Number: 10183460 Incident Date: January 20, 2007 Date Added to File: February 25, 2007 Description of the Complaint: In january, 2006, my car stopped dead on the highway. The vehicle would not disengage, it was pulled forward and parked.
They say it is unrelated. Can anyone help me rule one or the other out or how can I test which is bad? Many other things have failed too. Since it is getting cold out and you just bought it. I am now taking it back into the shop after 6 months. Checked the cable to the transfer case and it wasnt getting any power.
Looks like it is asking early or late build so I have attached a picture please look at the label on the door and give me that date. The contact was instructed by the dealership to slowly drive one and a half miles to the service department. I removed the transfer case motor checking my work. Here is a link for some other Explorer owners who had the same problem. This relates to 5th grear not being correct ratio.
