This is kind of an open question as I am not sure what the A/C problem is so I have given you the 2 fuses that deal with part of the A/C as well as a relay. In the passenger compartment fuse panel in the number 10 position is a 10 amp fuse that deals with the tempreture blend acuator,the A/C clutch contact but also works with the heated seats. Diagram of fuse layout below. In the passenger compartment fuse panel in the number 37 position is a 15 amp fuse that is for the A/C clutch relay but also has some dealings with the transmission as well. In that same box in the number 52 position is the A/C clutch relay itself. below is a diagram of that fuse layout as well below. I hope this helps you and good luck.

    my service engine soon light came on in my 2002

    my service engine soon light came on in my 2002 ford explorer what can it be?

    Posted by on

    Answer

    • Most Helpful of 2 Answers

    The service engine soon/check engine (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system you will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

    Rubbing or grinding noise coming from Driver side rear tire/wheel

    When I accelerate from a complete stop while turning left, there is a rubbing or grinding sound that comes from the back tire or wheel. I had my tires rotated today and the mechanic stated that i need to service the rear differential. Could that be causing the noise? He did check the brakes and calipers and those looked fine.

    I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.
    Good Luck

    2002 ford explorer-no 4 wheel drive

    I have a 2002 ford explorer v6 4.0 sohc. when I try to engage it into 4 wheel drive high, nothing. The light comes on on the cluster but doesn't work. I try to put the vehicle into 4 wheel drive low by putting into neutral, depressing the brake. the light blinks on the button and I hear a noise from the transfer case and a clicking behind the glove box but no 4 low . could the problem be either the actuator or the module? maybe something else? If I put the vehicle into 4 wheel drive high, would i hear a noise like a whinning or a clicking from somewhere?
