So the 4wd isn't working? Which wiring diagrams would be most helpful?

What seems to be not engaging correctly?

There are two options on this year model of explorer. Ford is notorious for their half-year changes. If your explorer still has the white build date sticker on the driver door jamb can you tell me the month/year of manufacture on there?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I have checked fuses and connections date 2 /2002

Ok, so that's early build. The most common problem on that model is the 4wd control unit. Is yours automatic or manual transmission?

Expert:  Jared D replied 9 months ago.
Verify good power and ground inputs to the 4WD control module (the module is mounted on the blower motor housing under the passenger side of the dash). The Orange wire on the module that the wiring diagram shows as hot in start is only used on manual transmission vehicles. There is no connection between this wire and the fuse with automatic transmission.

If power and ground inputs are OK, the module has very likely failed. The control modules have an extremely high failure rate.
