    I see you really know what you are talking about so I am going to see if I may lean on your expertise. I promise to be as brief as possible in all respect.

    I have a 2003 Explorer Eddie Bauer. The driver's door lock button (switch) WILL lock all doors but WILL NOT unlock any. I have tried multiple switches to no avail and do not believe it is associated to the switch. Please advise. Thank you in advance!

    Hi Shorod
    Thank you very much for taking the time to reply.

    My email address is I have the ForScan and FoCom via USB convertors neither of which see an SRS or RDC module which is why I was suspecting the module might not be working properly.

    The other codes in question 3 are from the GEMS module.

    Do you know of anywhere I can purchase a complete copy of the service manual electronically? I can get the from Ebay in the USA but the shipping and import will cost more than the manual!

    Thanks very much for your help.

    Hi Shorod
    Appreciate you get lots of questions so thanks for any help you can give.

    1998 Ford Explorer RHD Factory Export to UK

    1. Airbag system. The code flashed on the dashboard light is 14 but I cannot get my OBD scanner to communicate with the RDC module. It does not show up at all. There are six modules showing but not that one. Should it show up on an OBD scanner?

    OBD shows the switch working in both H and L positions. 4x4 H light illuminates correctly but not the 4x4 L light. I also can't hear the normal clunk noise as the motor shifts.

    3. OBD Scan faults
    B1462 - I realise this is probably not relevant as it is an export vehicle.

    Are any or all of these problems likely to be inter-related?

    Any help, service manuals or wiring diagrams you could provide would be hugely appreciated as the support from Ford UK is non existent and I really want to get my truck working again!

    Thanks very much
