EATC ambient temp sensor part number

Anyone have this? I am not having much luck at the local JY and was thinking about picking it up at the dealer or online. I have searched through every post about EATC and there is discussion about the differences but nothing on the part number.

I have a part number for the overhead console temp sensor but I have never found the one for the EATC. I'm sure that a good dealer parts guy could get the correct number and order it tomorrow. Remember that you will also need to get the repair connector pigtail through Motorcraft and that is probably more expensive than the EATC ambient sensor itself.

Or you could try the salvage yards again.

Thanks Bob, I am going to attempt the JY again in another week or so. I may call the dealer to find out anyways. Thanks.

FWIW, the '95 Explorer Manual shows a base part # of 12A648 for the Outside Ambient Temperature Sensor. That is the one for the EATC with the R/O and PK/BK wires.

The base number for the overhead console sensor is 12A647. Knowing that difference may be enough info to keep the dealer from ordering the wrong sensor, if it comes to that. Thanks Joe.

Good point Bob. It's interesting the part #s are so close.

I've noticed that Ford was consistent with using R/O and PK/BK wires for the Explorer EATC sensor, at least through the mid-late '90s, so that's maybe another way to help confirm the proper part.

That should work when removing the sensor from a vehicle at the junkyard but the sensor does not have any wires attached when ordered new. They are part of the Explorer engine bay harness.

True. I was thinking that maybe I would try and get the parts guy to do a search by way of the electrical diagrams if he can't pull up the part up another way. I'm assuming - maybe mistakenly - that the computer software used by the parts department can access wiring diagrams which not only reference components, but also the part #s associated with them.

Bill, I've got one laying around here. It's the one with the pink wires right? Because when I got the sensor for my OHC I just grabbed both. But I've got one laying around that I could probably mail you for free.

I did it on my 97. The instructions out there would work fine.

Tyler if you could find out for sure I would appreciate it. The Explorer EATC sensor wires are red/orange and pink/black. Let me know

the upper sensor in the pic, IIRC, is the ambient temp sensor...

I know the lower one is for the OHC...

That's the same as it was with the temp sensors I pulled off a '95 Explorer. But as Bob recently pointed out, you can't really go by the shape of the sensor alone:
