Well you may be able to get a tow truck to open it for about $50.00-$75.00,or you can gently pry the door open just enough to put a straightened out metal coat hanger in there to hit the door lock button..you should hang a spare key with a dog chain hook under your truck to a wire for just incase times

Hi!!
On Ford vehicles from 98 to 02, the light Door Switch on the Driver's or Passenger side is a common problem. One day you come home from work and in the morning, your vehicle's battery is drained, First thing to do is to take the Dome Light Fuse out to avoid a NO START situation, Second is to check your Door Switches starting with the Driver's Side.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

My boyfriend replaced the key cylinder and steering column has a box It has wiring I need a diagram or how to wire it 1998 ford expedition xlt it cranks but doesn't start.??


That box is for the anti-theft system , he changed the lock cylinder . You need new PATS keys . PATS - passive anti theft system .The transceiver module communicates with the encoded ignition key. This module is located behind the steering column shroud and contains an antenna connected to a small electronics module. During each vehicle start sequence, the transceiver module reads the encoded ignition key identification code and sends the data to the instrument cluster.
And the dealer is the only one that can program the keys . or a mobile lock smith .

I have a 98 expedition that starts every time but shuts down everytime too.


When you start it up don't completely release the key from the crank position, let off just enough to stop the starter, if the engine continues to run the ignition switch is defective, a common problem in this year. This is not the lock cylinder but the electrical switch located down at the bottom top of the steering column that the ignition key cylinder actuates via a long steel rod.

How do I program or fix the key-less entry remote on my Expedition 1998 4.6? I tryed but the truck wont go into programing mode.


This is the procedure to Replacing lost transmitters

Take all your vehicle's transmitters to your dealer for reprogramming if:
1.- One transmitter is lost, or
2.- You want to purchase additional transmitters (up to four may be
programmed).

To reprogram the transmitters, place the key in the ignition and switch from OFF to ON eight times in rapid succession within 10 seconds. After doors lock/unlock, press any button on all transmitters (up to four).

When completed, switch the ignition to OFF. All transmitters must be programmed at the same time.

Hope thie help (remember rated and comment this). Good luck.
