I have a 98 ford expodtion lost the key and tor into the ignion plz help.


OK. So you lost your key. People do that all the time. That's what spare keys are for. But you apparently don't have a spare. So you tore into the ignition to try to get the vehicle to start. Now you are realizing that the vehicle has safeguards to prevent just that from happening (we call what you tried to do "hot wiring"). The reason that the car is designed that way is to prevent theft and therefore reduce insurance costs. Money saved in order to have a spare key.

So you made some stup1d mistakes.

  1. You lost your key.
  2. You didn't have a spare key.
  3. You destroyed your vehicles ignition system
And now you want help. Unfortunately, you can't fix stup1d.
Call the dealer, get it towed, have it repaired, get a new key AND a spare. And after you spend that $1000.00, consider it a lesson learned.

What fuse should I check for the check engine light for a 1998 Ford Expedition?


Take it to autozone and have them do a free scan to tell you why the engine service light is illuminated.
Most likely its a cheap and easy fix ( bad fuel tank filler cap seal =$9).

Ford 2003 Expedition EB. Check Charging System


Its probably the alternator. It will need to be tested on the vehicle with the engine running and the light illuminated. Measure the battery voltage with the engine running. It should be at least 13.5 volts. If it is lower have the alternator tested at a shop with a charging system tester.

Over drive light on shifter blinks and check engine light is lit.


You need to have it scanned for codes. The flashing overdrive light means it has trouble codes that pertain to the transmission.

The only way to find out is to take it to a mechanic who has an engine analyzer and the rubbing could be caused by a loose mudshield (or a dozen other things).
