Having problems with your 1996 Ford Explorer ?
I have residual current draw on 1996 Ford Explorer. I traced it to fuse #25 (Speedometer and Gem System). Which is most likely? Can I (with battery disconnected) disconnect Gem, then reconnect battery to see if current draw gone? Any other ideas? Anyone seen this problem? Thanks for your help.
When checking a draw you have to wait to check till all modules have powered down including Gem module. This can take up to 30 min. Specs are 50 ma draw. To check get you a test light take off the postitive cable, " you can also use a meter", now you have to put the light in series withe the battery and cable. Clamp one side of test light to battery cable the other side to battery post WITH CABLE OFF THE WHOLE TIME. Now if you open doors turn any switches you will have to restart your 30min. then you can check and see if unplugging module, if that fixed problem. what we do is open the doors before, then take a screw driver and close the door latch so that you can get in and out of the car without turning something on
