Question about 1999 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

1999 FORD EXPEDITION intermittantly will not start.

The 1999 Expedition starts OK when cold. After it is driven even just a short distance, parked and shut off, nothing happens when the ignition key is turned. No click......no nothin'! In addition, all of the lights seem to work fine during this time, but the radio won't play.

If it sits for an hour to cool down, turn the ignition key and engine cranks and vehicle starts and runs fine (and the radio works). Again, try to start it when warm.....nothin' happens at all.

What should I be lookin for?

You have a bad starter. A faulty starter will function when its cold but when it heats up, it takes more energy to get the starter to engage. Your problem is exhibiting the classic symptoms of a bad starter. I hope this solves your problem and the best of luck to you.

1999 ford expedition wont start after battery been out for 2 months


Recharge the battery and retry.

Turn on the vehicle headlights. If they dim considerably when cranking, then your battery requires replacement.

Our 2000 Ford Expedition only puts out heat after being driven a mile or two even if it has been idling for a long period


when idiling in the winter it doesnt get hot enough until you raise rpms, that gets the motor hot enough to open thermostat so water starts circulating throughout the whole system.

sounds like something came loose or broke in the steering column, you will need to remove the covers and look at the linkage and ignition switch and see if its worn or broken,
