i removed the battery cables from the battery to try and
clean out the corrosion off the terminals. not after replacing the cables, the truck will not start. i did not realize or know that the explorer has the fuel pump shut off switch. i do not have an owner's manual because i bought it used. I NEED to know where this is located in a 1996 ford explorer or any ford explorer (i assume they wouldnt move that around on the newer ones). PLEASE HELP!
Thank you. i found it. unfortunately still no go. battery is not charging up enough for engine to turn over. i think i just may have a dead battery. the positive cable was very corroded and the positive terminal and end of the cable are melted. the bolt is stripped as well, making it nearly impossible to get on and off. sooo i guess i'll be going to autozone tomorrow to get a new cable and check out my battery. maybe hopefully i'll find out what caused this, it was not like this yesterday. all of a sudden, on my way home from work, check engine light came on and truck got real sluggish. and now here i am. sigh.
