After lifting carpet on passenger side, I still cannot find Inertia Switch. I am a female living alone. What else should I do to actually get to the part? I just need to reset it.


Asked by Nov 19, 2014 at 04:25 PM about the 1997 Ford Explorer 2 Dr XL 4WD SUV

Question type: General

What tools do I need, if any?

assuming that you looked under the dash right about where the carpet ends? that is a likely spot. also on some models it can be behind the passenger side kick panel. that is the plastic panel to the right of your feet on the passenger side.

Sometime behind a rubber grommet.
