Picked it up from the shop and it started fine. after work today I went to start my truck and bam the fuse blew, again, again, again, and again. I think I replaced it at tleast 5 times(iginiton fuse) One other thing. during the same time period my rear wiper quite working during a rain storm. All other fuses are good and have been checked numerous times. It won't start at all so I had to leave her at work. Am a lose for words at this moment. HELP!!

Just finished working on a 99 expedition 4x4. Fuse 21 kept blowing out. We trouble shot it by removing fuse 21 and 30. Take a test lamp and tie the one side to the positive of the battery. Put the other side to the disconnected side of the starter solenoid (disconnected small wire). If the light is lit the wire is grounded somewhere. Shake the wiring to find the sensitive spot. So the owner recently had the exhaust header fixed on the passenger side. We found the harness laying on the exhaust pipe. Problem solved. Good luck with yours. Oh and connecting this wire to the positive side would blow the short open.

The expeditions had a problem with the rear wiper motor grounding out, i would try replacing the wiper motor first, as for the fuse blowing, it is blowing for a reason, fuses don't just blow. if the wiper motor does not fix you may need to have someone go thru the electrical pin point tests to find the short.

How do i remove the old ignition from my 1998 ford expedition eddie bauer edition

If you still have the key there is a small hole in the bottom plastic of the steering column where you can put a small screwdriver or pick up through and push the pin in with the ignition on and it will slip right out.. It may take a couple tries to get the right spot but you will feel the pin push in as you turn the switch.
