The contact stated that some of the vinyl siding on his home was damaged by the fire. Wipers come on and off no keys in ignition. The fire was coming from the engine compartment. This may be caused by an intermittent Battery Saver, Accessory Delay or One-Touch-Down Relay operation and possible chafing of vehicle wire harness. Disconnected for ten minutes, reconnected, started engine, put in neutral, moved switch to 4wd low, nothing for a couple seconds, then shazam, clunk, and engagement with 4wd low light on.
Total time to swap out, 5 minutes. It worked for another three weeks until we had another down pour of rain, while driving I heard continuous beeps a minute or two later there was a burn smell in the truck it seems to come from under the dashboard on the driver side, being scared I had to park the truck and have it tow. Could it be some type of compressor issue from the 4wd malfunctioning or something?

Can anyone tell me what this lite means? Is there a recall on this truck? The car will not go into 4wd high or low.

Go down to your local auto parts store, I prefer Advance Auto , take a pair of gloves, just because, and they should be able to help you. An online search found numerous similar complaints along with a Ford service bulletin Ford special message 15773. I then ran out the door and was going to try and move the car away from the house. Neither the dealer nor the manufacturer was notified of the failures. The car will not go into 4wd high or low.

Complaint Number: 10109101 Incident Date: November 17, 2004 Date Added to File: January 27, 2005 Description of the Complaint: While being parked vehicle inadvertently caught on fire. We tried to push the car out of the garage and couldn't it caught our two-car garage and our children's room and bathroom. There are so many things that can cause the flashing internally like hall sensors that it would be difficult to diagnose it over the internet. See action for Code 9. Nov 28, 2012 It can be faulty 4x4 wd switch. It started out just the warning lights would blink, then the radio would shut off in drive but come back on in park. No more blinking lights and the windows work like new.
Common problems were easy to diagnose back then but now with the computer run transmissions along with the shift solenoids and everything else I have no idea where to start. No after market equipment added. Lights may or may not come on. Several times the blower for the heat would keep or turn on after I shut the truck off. My problem was as simple as replacing that fuse. I have checked and replaced many relays.
Things that haven't worked in years auto locks now work. Can anyone tell me where the battery saver and accessory delay relays are located on the 97 explorer. The failure usually occurred in rainy and snowy weather; the doors would lock and the passenger was unable to get out of the vehicle. It was melted and smoking. Car ignition turns over but will not start. If the truck is turned off the stereo and ac will stay on and locks will lock and unlock by themselves.
Still dies out if i turn on headlights and or depress brake pedal. I had the dealership run computer diagnostics to tell me what the source of the problems was. Root cause was leaking windshield seal which corroded electronics. I was awoken by a passerby by doorbell at 0555 in the morning. This is a triton 5.

We then drove our vehicle from california to our new duty station at fort belvoir, virginia. I just wrote the ford company and they told me they knew nothing about such problems!!! We had to remove a battery cable for it to stop. The fire damaged everything in the upper portion of the engine compartment, the hood, the cowling and the grill. Battery dead again several hours later.
The fire department stated it seemed to have been an electrical malfunction. Apparently the recall did not correct the fires. My expedition is currently at mullinex ford in apopka, fl. Odometer intermittently comes back on since then. Otherwise its still in high. There is a 3rd sensor in the rear axle, and as I understand it, this is for abs brake system only, not the 4x4.
