2000 Ford Expedition Engine/Radio problem

One of the statements in my paragraph may have been misleading. My car finally started and the radio did start working. I don't understand why the car did not crank with the first attempt on the new battery though. Sounds like it wouldn't be related to the battery protection relay.

Most likely the issue is the battery protection relay, it may have been set off by a sticking courtesy light switch on the door latch (very common), this would have kept the dome lights on after u left the truck, this would have triggered the relay after about 10 minutes

2000 Ford Expedition, Removed radio to see if the antenna was plugged in or not. Now the radio will not come on. Can hear static in the background like it is transmitting sound but none of the lights or...

If this is the stock radio it has an anti-theft code that needs to be entered into the stereo.The only way I know to get the code is to contact your Ford dealer.

Radio shuts off when headlights are on

Likely bad ground. Also check battery voltage when headlights are on. Most stereos shuts off when battery level drops bellow certain value

Radio does not work but cd does

Mine had a similar problem (radio/tape casette days a 2 decades ago) Had to return the radio 3 times till they finally fixed it correctly. It was a problem internal to the radio. Sounds like you may have a compnent loose & not soldered well to the PC board. Or maybe it's a bad component & got fried. (output transistors ?)
