my temp sensor went crazy, i just put a new one on. you might just have a bad sensor, just check your local yard and they are behind the front bumper on the explorers

thats where mine is, as far as the tape goes, just go to home depot or somewhere like that and get some cheap wire connections for a few bucks when u put the new one on. It may make it last longer anyway

It's the engine heat man. Move it to the radiator support in front of the engine

Mine used to be messed up too, until I moved it

do you have the vss (vehicle speed sensor) that sometimes can play havoc on the actual temp... also try mounting it up front. there is a few nice wholes in the core support

what code is the airbag throwing? installing the ohc shouldn't have anything to do with your airbags.

yes, it should be the grey/black wire behind the radio on the G.E.M. easy to do. keeps the temp accurate when your driving.

it should flash a series, pause, flash another series, long pause, repeat. count how many times it flashes and that's your code.

no, it means either the switch is unhooked or the light bulb is burnt out.
