That looks like the wrong sensor in the picture since the wires are not blue.
EATC temp sensor: red/orange and pink/black
Overhead console temp sensor: blue/white and blue/yellow
Many Explorers have both the console and the EATC sensors. Be sure to get the right sensor and connector for the console (blue/white and blue/yellow wires). The EATC sensor will give a false temperature reading if mistakenly used with the overhead console.
