2000 expedition no crank


try to turn the motor over by hand. If you can't. Remove the serpentine belt and you'll most likely find a frozen alternator or water pump or something.

Odometer won't work unless headlights turned off, radio lights dim, blinker won't blink all the time now battery light comes on but battery tests good. Intermittent issues getting worse. Horn


You probably have a bad ground in the electronic instrument cluster, or cluster connection to wiring harness. I would recomend you have a qualified auto tech diagnose it. It is not a easy fix.

I have a 2000 ford expedition that fell dead at the light and will not start. car will not start. already changed battery. fully charged


You must verify the main power cables to ground( -) and another to fuse box. If the lights not work, after you changed the battery and doesn't light anything in control panel( board), one of that cable is
interrupted.

Got new brakes about 8 months ago --abs light is going on and the lights are dimming--can you advise what that means?


For this problem you may need to put your SUV on a specialized scanner. The ABS system has a dedicated diagnostic plug to test the computer within it. The fact that your lights are dimming is unusual. For something to pull enough power to dim the lights without blowing a fuse first is showing this is a wiring problem.

You may want to disconnect the NEG battery cable or park the SUV outside your house, away from anything valuable. There were recalls on Cruise control circuits for some year models. You should read the Vin# to the Dealer as it is possible this unit was missed. You can also check under the Brake pedal lever and see if there are any broken plastic switches. Sometimes a foot will break parts in the interior of the drivers pedal area. The resulting short could affect some lighting.

The ABS warning can simply be a wheel sensor which fell out of its mount. For it to ground consistently to dim lights, I don't see it happening. Would like to know the results of this repair.

2000 expedition wont start changed sloenoid and battery still just click wont turn over


The poster should first make sure new battery is fully charged.Be sure battery cables are very clean and tight,same with connectors on solenoid. Have an assistant turn on headlamps(high beam) and attempt to start vehicle.Do lights remain the same or do they dim excessively? If lights dim noticeably check for shorted starter cable or defective starter.also check engine for excessive turning effort using turning tool on engine crank bolt or screwdriver in flywheel with starter removed.If lights do not dim check for open circuit in starter or cable.Sometimes a few sharp raps on the starter body will get it to work temporarily.Defective starters will often have a burnt smell. IF engine is excessively hard to turn,mechanical problem,such as leaking coolant into cylinders or defective injector may exist.Always use extreme caution when working under vehicle or near electrical components,batteries can explode or burn you badly and starter can engage causing serious bodily harm.Most auto parts stores can test starter with component removed.Also be sure correct replacement part is installed.This vehicle has several solenoids that will fit,but will not necessarily work.

I have a 2000 Ford Expedition. The battery was


Hi:
The battery light is telling you that you are running off the battery,and you have a problem with your charging system. An easy way to check your alternator is to get a volt meter, and measure the voltage of your fully charged battery. with your expedition not running, it should read about 12.6 volts. When you start your expedition, it should read approx 14 volts if your alternator is working properly.
Of course, check all of your connections first, and most auto parts stores will check your alternator out for free, so they might have a chance to sell you one!

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.
