Having problems with your 2004 Ford Explorer ?

2004 Ford Explorer 4.0 v6 will not crank

\015 I ran out of gas the other day. After putting some gas in the tank, I tried to start the engine but I had lost power from trying to crank it. I hooked up a battery charger to the battery, waited a few minutes and tried to start it. It cranked a few times but didn't have enough juice. So, I tried to jump start it with a friends vehicle. After hooking up the cables properly and waiting a few minutes, I tried to start it and nothing happened. It wouldn't even crank and there was no clicking noises when I turned the key, but all the dash lights came on and the radio worked. So, I let it sit over night hoping that the computer just needed to reset something. Came back next day and still nothing. I replaced the battery and still nothing. I replaced the starter and solenoid and still nothing. I replaced the ignition relay and still nothing. Keep in mind that the whole time I still have power because all of my lights and electronic equipment still work. I hooked up a code reader and it said no codes found. Let me know if you can help. My email is [email protected] Thank you so much\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 30-11-2020

You have a fuel reset switch that needs to be pushed back in. This is why you are not getting any thing to happen
\015\012
The fuel pump inertia switch is located in your right front passenger\015\012
\015\012area. It is located on the right side of the transmission hump on the\015\012
\015\012toe board, just under the edge of the carpet. If you don't see any gas\015\012
\015\012leaking, or smell any gas, push the button down that has popped up\015\012
\015\012on the top of the switch. This will allow power to go to your fuel pump.
First do this if you tried cranking the car several times it is very possible you took out the crank sensor or threw the timing off also have the alternator tested and if it has been over 40,000miles replace the drivebelt also there is a 175amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood get a volt meter and switch the car on without starting it and you should have a 175amp volts do everything else first and if all fails test this please let me if I was able to help you with your problem
