98 Pathfinder All Electrical in Vehicle Gone.

I would go with the corroded cables. You would have power to everything even with the alternator out of the truck.

When i start my 97 expedition it cranks hard and almost doesent start and the battery is new and ive checked the volts b4 starting it so i know its not a battery issue what could be the problem

sounds like the starter or starter solonid is bad ,if you have an amp meter test the starter or remove the starter and take it to your auto parts store and have it tested .most will test it free.also check all cables and terminals coming off of battery for good connections. If cables are corodded replace them, If engine is running rough check timeing of engine, timeing chain or belt may have jumped time

97 Expedition, 5.4L hesitated during acceleration 40-45MPH. Check Engine light flashed, then stayed on. Would get up to 55-60MPH. All guages read ok. First trouble ever with this car.

go to a parts store and they will let you use their scanner for free. sounds like a cylinder misfiring. The scanner will tell you which one it is.
