Having problems with your 1998 Ford Explorer ?
Dead overnight battery short in instrument panel
You will need a amp meter to check this. 1. make sure the battery is fully charged 2. remove the negative cable from the battery 3. with the key out of the ignition and doors closed place one probe on the negative battery cable and the other probe on the negative post of the battery (the battery should be in the car with the positive cable attached to the positive battery post) 4. note the amount of amps your truck is drawing (3 is the norm, 5 or more is considered high) 5. if the reading is high remove one fuse at a time, check the amps again until you find which fuse is drawing the extra amps. 6. Start with the smaller fuses; if you suspect it is a problem with the instrument panel start there. This should help you pinpoint your problem area. Good luck
