fuse 41 stall

Asked by Oct 12, 2016 at 12:53 PM about the 2004 Ford Explorer XLT V6 4WD

Question type: General

I have a 2004 ford explorer v6. it badly idles at 500 rpms. it sometimes stalls when idles down when breaking or downshifting into first at a stop or start. when it stalls it blows my fuse 41 in my box under hood. if I replace the fuse. it runs till stalls again but if I don't replace fuse no start. it still has full power but no start, not ever a little crank, nothing. I have a check engine and check gas cap light on with code p0457. I was told that it was a evap leak. I checked the cap and all good and any hoses that are visible are fine. I currently drive it with two feet, one on the brake and one on the gas just so that the car doesn't idle down to a stall. could I have overlooked or have a short for a wire or something that would just do it.

Check the O2 sensor wires to see if one of them has gotten loose from it's clip and allowed it to get against the exhaust manifold. The cure for this will be finding what is blowing the fuse.

thank you. I figured the same thing. im thinking that it could also be a bad or dirty iac Idle control
