My 2000 ford excursion runs bad and the over drive light turns on often

When it dies the over drive light will come on and stay on when I restart it. The light will go off after it's runs for a few minutes but still runs rough.

    The Excursion runs extremely bad when the over drive light is on. The light turns on when the auto is put in reverse and at other times. Don't think it's a transmition problem because it seems to work great. When the light turns off and it goes down the road the Excursion works just fine, but will stall at slow RPM's or when idling.

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

You have a door adjar light sticking in one of the doors or deck lid.
Take you a can of WD40 open each door and spray it into the latch on the on the side of the doors then open and close it a few times,this will take car of the problem most of the time. Start with the driver door first it is usually the one.

If these lights still work on your excursion then it is probably not a fuse problem. It sounds like it is a loose pin(s) with the trailer plug or a loose electrical connection(s) on the trailer or maybe the bulbs on the trailer are burned out. This should help, if not then contact me again at FixYa and I will be glad to help.

After gasing up my 2000 excursion the truck stopped then it only starys on if the gas pedel is down it just shakes


That sounds like your Idle Air Control valve has gone out.

You can get one at any parts store, and swap it out in a few minutes.

If that doesn't fix the problem, look at your Mass Air Flow meter, that could be out too.

There is a turn signal/flasher relay that has probably died. They are usually plugged into the cars fuse box. Get a new one from a dealer - they are cheap enough.

Honestly you should send it into the dealer. I don't think guessing will help you. Typically it is a dirty connection into the steering column (behind the ignition key) But diagnostics need to be run and a look at the VSS system (through a good scan tool) is needed to confirm.

2000 Ford Excursion diesel when shut off interior and running board lights stay lit for long period of time or won't go out at all which in turn causes the cars battery to go dead.


You have a door ajar switch sticking in one of the doors. Start with the drivers door,open door and spray a liberal amount of WD40 into the latch on the side of the door. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This usually unsticks them.
