Why won't my 2000 Ford Expedition turn on. Is the battery dead when lights won't come on or it won't light up inside. Dash won't light up. Nothing comes on.


IF you have no power then 99.99999% the battery will be dead. So it will either need to be charged if it will still hold a charge or it will need to be replaced. There may also be other issues(see 2) but that is where to begin.

You might also try and start the vehicle using jumper leads connected to another vehicle. After the leads are connected properly , start the engine in the other vehicle and then try to start your engine. You do not always need to start the other car but you will if the battery fitted to the other vehicle has insufficient cranking amps to turn over the starter motor in your car. If your vehicle starts and you have normal power to lights and accessories once your engine is running (and you are disconnected from the other vehicle) then you know your battery is possibly the only issue.

2. However, your alternator must also be providing power to the vehicle when it is running and the alternator also charges the battery whilst your engine is running.. If the alternator is faulty and not generating the power supply, your battery will be the only power source and it will run down very rapidly. In your case(with a 2000 model vehicle) I would definitely have the alternator checked to ensure it is generating the required power because eventually these components do fail and need to be replaced.

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.

2006 Expedition ran great, parked over night, would not start, battery checked Okay


See if you can jump start the car from another battery which is sound. If you can then the battery you have is rubbish and must be replaced.

1999 ford expedition wont start after battery been out for 2 months


Recharge the battery and retry.

Turn on the vehicle headlights. If they dim considerably when cranking, then your battery requires replacement.

When your battery light comes on it is telling you that your ALTERNATOR is not charging your battery! So you need to replace the alternator.

You can verify that it is bad by taking the car or just the alternator to an auto parts store and having them test it for you for free.

I have a 2003 Eddie Bauer edition of the Explorer. It ran fine until the battery dies from the back hatch being left open. We replaced the battery and it ran fine for a while again then the battery died....


Sounds like the alternator is shot. The alternator charges the battery when you re driving and also gives power to the engine and accessories. If this dies the car will run on battery power until it dies.

Battery being drained on 2000 Expedition


you should remove your alternator and take it into an auto parts store and they can test it for you.
this alt had an internal regulator which can be replaced easy.
your auto parts store will be able to full feld your alt to bypass the regulator. this is how you test it to see if the regulator is bad.

you didnt say how many miles are on this truck .
most of these ford alt will last 120,000 or more
on the back side of the alt you will see the replaceable regulator.
