Hi Every one
This is my first post so here goes.
I live in Kingaroy Queensland Australia.Please dont hold that against me ;)
Recently I bought an Explorer off of ebay that had a crook auto.After finding the parts I needed I purchased them from USA and than rebuilt the gearbox.It now goes like a dream.....BUT the 4X4 is not working. After lots of searching I believe it is the control module that is at fault. The only problem is trying to get one over here in AU so I was hoping someone over there may be able to help me with a few questions.The module in my car is :Ford number:1L24-7H473-AG
Can anyone tell me what the upgraded module number would be and where I could get one from. As I had the battery disconnected for about a month would that have killed it and if not what happens to them?Can it be reprogrammed or repaired?
thank you in advance

David - Aaaarrrgghh! Early Ford Explorer!! (backs away, holding out a cross) ....... [:-)

Those things are known as money pits. Good luck on fixing the problem. I think these blokes on this following forum are going to be your major help area.

My eldest nephew bought a later model Explorer, and the tranny kept giving him grief. He got it fixed one last time, after many times - and then sold it, and bought a Landcruiser - like he should have done, first off. [;-)

Cheers - Ron.

Hi David,

Sorry but I have to agree with Ron. Get rid of it.

Not against ford as I drive one myself and my last car vehicle before this was a ford as well. Both are fantastic but the Exolorer is a real dog.
