2002 ford expedition- clicking from the relays inside car

We changed the battery in it because it froze at the Mechanic shop. Next morning, we tried to crank it and nothing happened. No lights came on inside or outside the truck. No clicking when you turn the key, but if you keep the door open, one of the relays from the fuse box constantly makes a clicking noise. I jumped it and it started running again but im afraid it might stop working again. Sounds like relay one and two is clicking. Relay one is the head lamp relay and relay two is the battery saver relay. Does anyone have a solution to my problem? please help

If your saying the starter motor won't crank, make sure the battery has a full charge.
Note the starter components picture, If that is what you have, I'd check the starter relay switch. It appears to be underhood--firewall or rear of fender lining, passenger side.
See the two large lugs, that should be battery voltage to and from relay switch. The smaller terminal should be feed from crank position of ignition switch.
In the past on different makes and models I have used a large screwdriver to short between the two large posts at the relay switch, to see if starter motor will crank. If you try this, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
I may be coming in the back door to diagnose, but, It should lead to same place.

SOURCE: battery saver relay is on and do not start

One it could be the battery but if your radio and stuff works then it is not the case, the clicking is your starter trying to turn over, so that could be it as well.

If it is a single click, the problem lies in the starter solenoid or relay. If it is several clicks in succession, the battery may be low or there may be a loose cable. ---------- also try this :-- Please make sure the battery is fully charged before doing this test! Also make sure all the connections on the starter, battery and cable ends are tight and clean! this is important!! This won't be fun to test but it will tell you if the starter is good or not. Crawl under the car. (Make sure you use the proper jacks and jack stands!) find the end of the starter (not the end that is attached to the bell housing) and find the solenoid switch. it should have 3 bolts on it. Two large ones and a small one. The top large wire should be the positive battery cable, the bottom large wire should go into the starter and the small wire should be from the ignition switch. Take a wire and hold it to the top large wire on the solenoid. (be careful of the other end of that wire when you have it connected to the top large wire of the solenoid! don't ground this wire. it will turn out badly. take the other end of the wire and touch it to the small bolt on the solenoid end. If the starter is working, the solenoid should engage and the starter will turn. If this happens it is most likely the ignition switch. If the starter doesn't turn, the starter could be bad. ==== Starter Relay Test
Place transmission in Park.
Apply parking brake.
Check for battery voltage between starter relay battery terminal and ground.
Connect jumper wire on starter relay between battery and ignition terminals.
If engine does not crank, connect a second jumper wire to starter relay between ground terminal and good ground and repeat test.
If engine cranks in step 3, transmission linkage is misadjusted or neutral safety switch is defective.
If engine does not crank in step 3, starter relay is defective.
Follow this step by step and you will pinpoint the problem.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

You said you tightened the battery cables, did you check the other end of the negative where it bolts to the engine. When you tightened the cables you also used a battery brush and cleaned the posts and ends?

Starts but won t keep running


your first problem is that you are taking it to a mechanic with questionable qualifications
engines don't clear throats or have relays do it for them
the car has an onboard reporting system called an ECM and any mechanic who knows his trade would connect a scanner to the data plug and read the fault codes ( you can do that at autozone or like spares shops for free)
knowing the fault codes , the faulty sensors can then be fixed or replaced
from your description of the problem it appears to be a cold engine problem as you say runs well for the rest of the day
That indicates an ambient temp sensor, Baro sensor, MAP/VAF sensor and low fuel pressure from a faulty fuel pressure regulator sensor problem
find yourself an accredited service center that has experience on your make of vehicle and have it properly diagnosed

Where is the fuel pump relay located on a 2004 ford expediton.


67sunbeam, this is a rather complex system. The actual fuel pump,relay is located in the central conjunction box which is located behind the left kick panel. IT IS NON SERVACEABLE according to Ford. There is an inertia switch inside the left rear cab corner near the bottom. Just push it into the relay, if it was tripped, it will click.There is a fuseable link in the engine compartment next to the battery on the engine side. Aside from that, the fuel pump it self could have connection problems and more. Beyond the simple things, unless you fix cars for a living, it may cost you more to fix it you self than to bring it to a pro.

03 ford expedition interior lights stay on and door ajar reads


This is a very common problem with Fords. I have one that was doing this as well. What works for most people is pretty much what you have tried - spraying inside the latch all over with WD40 Until it's coming out the bottom of the door. If this fails to work, the switch probably needs replaced. The switch is located inside the door near the latch. It should be pretty easy to find once you have the door panel off. Look for the wires leading to it. A new switch is usually very inexpensive, but may have to be purchased through your local Ford dealer. If you're not comfortable taking the door panel off, a mechanic should be able to do this repair for you in less than an hour of shop time.
