Re: 1997 ford expedition wont stay running?
Check all of the battery terminals and cables and check the wires on the starter/selonoid, start from the battery and follow the cable out and check all conections , clean and tighten them and if it still does it the starter/selonoid is bad and needs replacement

first off make sure the battery connections are good and clean,then there is a solenoid on the fender by the battery ,these go bad you can test it by removing the little wire that slides over the small terminal and touch a screwdriver between this little terminal and the positive terminal next to it on the solenoid this will engage the starter motor,if it does then your solenoid is bad ,there are plenty of utube vidieos so u can see what im talking about if your not sure
Do you get anything from the dash (lights, gauges..etc.) when you turn the key or is it completely dead? Check the battery connection and also the starter. Sometimes the battery is on its last leg and will provide enough for lights but won't turn it over.
get a multimeter and test battery output, if more than 13v when you turn key to crank position if below then battery may be faulty and not holding charge, check starter relay and fuse, if ok also check for any parasitic draw from any accesary that might draw down battery when engine not running
Hi, this light is signaling a malfunction within the OD shift solenoid that is located within the transmission. the best action here is to take it to the local ford dealer for a PCM scan. you shouldreceive a code that will point to a transmission OD shift solenoid issue.
Under the hood on the passenger fire wall you will see the starter solenoid.Unplug the small wire running to it and see if your problem goes away.If it does problem is ignition switch if it does not then tap the solenoid and see if it quits.If this takes care of it then solenoid is bad.
