how many wires are on your visors? 1 or 2? if 1, then you have to add a ground. the explorer doesn't have the little plastic pieces for the screws like the ranger does. so the explorer would just ground through the mounting screws. you will have to add a ground wire. i just ran a wire from the inner brace to one of the screws. used an eyelet connector and put it between the visor mount and the inner roof.
