How 'bout clutch chatter from that brand new clutch installation?
(Although the computer thing sounded good too...)

Subject: FTE Small - The B-II with the chattery start....

Okay guys, see what kind of sping this throws to you. I disconnect the speed
sensor on the rear pumpkin, and the problem goes away!! :-) Of course, I
have no rear braking action while doing this, but the truck is ever so easy
to drive, start, manuever, etc. It engages like it should! (And did a while
ago..)

My father has a 1988 Ranger 2.3 cylinder 2 wd that has 210,000 miles on it,
using the original clutch. My dad is a delivery man for donuts that he makes
at the shop. Been doing this since we bought this truck. I learned from him,
and we can drive 'em so smooth!! :-) I should get at least 70,000 miles out
of my clutch here in the little B-II.

So, what would be in the RABS circuit? I could have screwed up my RABS speed
sensor when I crunched my rear end two months ago. I just moved the sensor
from one pumpkin to the new one. Maybe I transplanted a problem?? Thoughts
anyone?

Thanks adam,

Adam

Subject: FTE Small - Trailer Wiring Adapter

Just installed a trailer wiring adapter on my 94 Explorer XLT. It
mates with a plug inside the jack compartment in the cargo bay, and
terminates in a standard flat jack.

The problem: turn signals don't work properly when
running/headlights are on. The trailer lights are wired
correctly--they work fine with my Nissan pickup and other vehicles.
Is the Ford wiring different?

Also, there seems to be another capped round plug beneath the
passenger side rear bumper. I think I have seen adapters to fit
this plug.

Any help/info will be much appreciated!

The wiring harness is different and Ford will not trade up. I asked them
the same question, they told me to go with an after market as it will be
cheaper and better sounding.

Hello.
Saw u posting msgs...thought I would ask a question.
Do the new Head Units from the 99/2000 stereos fit in the 97 explorer XLT's
and if so what type of harness do they require"
Does anyone have any ideas as to where a stock unit can be traded in for a
newer or refurbished stock unit...basically my cd changer is in pain and
needs to be replaced.

You probably already have a tow package on your truck. You might just need
to get a 6 or 7 prong adapter down to a four. Most auto parts stores will
have them. If they dont just go to a U'Haul place they will have it

The capped round plug under the bumper on the passenger side is the one
you're looking for. My 94 Explorer came with the trailer wiring adapter
that fit the plug. The lights on my trailer work as they should using this
arrangement.
