SOURCE: ABS Light / Sensor on 1996 Ford Explorer

the rear one is a single sensor and is located in the top of the rear differential , unplug it and take the retaining bolt out and it pops straight up out of the differential. the front has 1 for each wheel,and is located on the backside of the wheel hub. take the tire off and look on back side of hub it should be the only sensor thare and is anchored with one bolt then just fallow the wire to its disconnect point. this vehicle is known to have problems with the rear sensor so i would replace it first and see if this fixes the problem

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on

The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......

SOURCE: 1996 ford explorer head light has high beam but no

The components involved in your headlamp system vary considerably depending on whether your vehicle is equipped with "Auto Lamps", "Daytime Running Lamps" and/or "Fog Lamps". In any of these cases, both the High Beam and the Low Beam elements share the same grounds. Yes, it could be the dimmer switch. It could also be the Daytime running lamp module or the Headlamp Switch or the Auto Lamp Control Unit. It is also possible that you simply have both of your Low Beam Headlamp elements burned out or have bad sockets where they connect to the wiring harness.

The shift interlock solenoid works off of the brake lamp circuit. Check your brake lights to see if they are working. If the brake lights are not working, the most likely cause would be the brake lamp switch.

No dash lights. dimmer switch turns on dome light but dash lights won't come on


Check for a small amp fuse in the fuse panel to be blown,if it is not blown,check ,with a test light to see if there is voltage going to the fuse,note,the headlight will have to be on to test this,if there is no voltage going to the fuse(remember to adjust the dimmer when testing also)replace the head light switch,this circuit is controlled by the head light switch,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.
