I have a 1993 ford exporer sport 4.0 and need a smog check; however, the engine light won't go off. I took it to several smog places. It Diagnosed with codes 214 and 556 (Mass Air filter sensor). I fixed the 556; however, the 214 Cylinder I.D. circuit (system) malfuntion. I was told it is an electrical problem and would cost a lot to fix. What do you think? I want to sell this car.

I took my the 1993 Ford Explorer to a reputable electrical repair person/he says since it is an electrical problem it could be more expensive than what the car is worth. Now if you would like to buy it, I will sell it to you for 1500 or less. We can talk.
