My explorer want start, I've heard of a fuel pump switch can't locate
it, also alternator and battery tested good, changed out selenoid
switch. Still can't get it to start can anyone give me some advice on
Does it crank? The fuel reset is either in the back by the rear
window washer bottle and the jack (should be a round red button) or up
front, probably on the left side of the tranny hump sort of under the
edge of the carpet.
When you turn the key to "on" and just listen (don't turn it to start,
just on) do you hear the fuel pump run for about 2 seconds? If so,
you don't need to worry about the switch. If you don't hear it run
you might want to try and find the switch although the only reason the
switch should need resetting is if you ran into something hard. You
can also try replacing the fuel pump relay if it's not running for the
2 seconds. It's somewhere in the electric distribution box under the
hood I think. If you get the 2 seconds of pump noise but no start you
may have an ignition system problem. Could be lots of things. Bad
coil, bad computer, bad position sensor. There could be other fuel
problems too even if the pump does run. It still needs to have the
computer open the fuel injectors.
