Sounds like anti-theft system problem ! There is a little red light center top of dash pad , When you try to start the vehicle does the light flash fast ? If the vehicle thinks it's being stolen it won't let truck crank over an it turns off the fuel injectors !

2003 ford expedition will not crank below 50 degrees. Security light on the dash will flash real fast. motor will turn over just will not crank. later in the day when it warms up it will start right up and...


It can be as simply as a bad battery. The Antitheft system views a low battery as an attempted theft action. Then the Antitheft cuts cranking voltage to around 7 Volts to prevent the engine from starting.

Battery voltage drops in cold weather. This would explain your problem and the activation of the Antitheft light.

Please rate my info. You might try adding a battery charger for a few minutes before you try starting it and see what effects it has.

Another idea is to turn off the A/C when cranking. The A/C clutch is a big drag on the system AND is temperature controlled to disengage the clutch at lower outside temperatures. If this control is not working, the A/C would not disengage.

You can get the starter tested on the vehicle with a DRAW test. The battery can be tested too. FREE at most big parts stores like Autozone.

2000 ford expedition wont start,security light in dash keeps flashing when trying to start,speedometer and gauges move when trying to start,,,fuel pump was replaced last year,,please help.thanks.


Your vehicle is equipped with a passive theft deterrent system that utilizes a "pill" embedded in your key along with a receiver contained in the steering column. If the system doesn't recognize your key, the vehicle will crank but not start and the theft light will flash rapidly. If you have another key, try it. Otherwise, you're in for a trip to the dealer where they can either reset the system or troubleshoot it further.

Good luck.

If you are reseting a factory alarm...lock and unlock the drivers door with the key. If you don't know the code look under the dash driver side in left corner there should be a black cover with a sticker with a code on it 6 numbers that is the factory code.
