Question about 1999 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

I have a ford 1999 expedition and I disconected the battery and re connected it and the truck won't start unless I reach down to my right and hold a little button in and turn the ignition at the same time. I called Ford about this some years ago and was told that I need to hold the button in and go back and forth with the ignition key so many times and then it will start. Can you tell me what the procedure is.

Sounds like battery not holding charge. Or a light staying on, boot or glovebox? Most likely battery tho.

Probably the inertia switch for the fuel pump..You owners manual should show you where its located..See if the button has pop up ..If it has push it back down until it clicks..If it wont stay down then hold it down and see if it will start..If it does you will have to replace it..If thats all good then check the relay for the fuel pump..

My 2004 ford expedition cranks but won start, I disconected the fuel line at the fuel filter and there is not fuel pumping when I crank the engine. I checked fuse, realay and inertia cutoff switch and they...


Yes. Unfortunately, it sounds like it is your fuel pump, and if it is, I believe it's located in the gas tank. Would be extremely hard to replace it yourself unless you have the proper tools, jacks, a lift for the car, etc.... If you decide to do so, write back and I'll provide step-by-step instruction.
