This wiper system is controlled through the BCM (body control module), it can be tested with a scan tool, you need that done.

Hi John!
  • There is a short in the Circuit. Do not put any more fuses in it.
  • Take it to the Electric Shop to have it diagnosed.
Good Luck,

On my 02 Excursion with the 7.3L Diesel, the Cam Position Sensor is located at the front bottom of the engine on the passengers side. There is one electrical pigtail plug that is attached and one bolt holds the sensor in position. It may be located in a similar location on your 05 Ex. I do not know where the crank sensor is located. I hope this helps.

Is you question about what a cabin air filter is or where it is located or how to change? Most of the ones I've seen are in the glove box but some are in the engine bay on the firewall. Youtube will have a video of how to swap. Get a replacement from walmart or amazon.

I changed the fuel filter in my 04 explorer last week. You to need a special tool, it is just a little plastic tool that you slide onto the fuel line to release the clips holding the line onto the filter. If you know what your doing and have easy access to the filter, and most importantly...you enjoy doing the work then buy the tool and change the filter. By the way the tool ranges from $5 to $20, depending on what the part store has on their shelves.

you will have to get a replacement line. you can try and repair the leak with a compression coupler, but it would only be a temporary fix.
