The code is for the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor. Available almost anywhere (auto parts store), easily changed.

    one other question - is it ok to drive the car until part comes in?

  • downhille Mar 28, 2014

    I believe it is okay to drive. My daughter had one go bad, but I do not recall how the car acted. Auto parts store should have this in stock, or a wrecking yard. You might try resetting the ECM. Disconnect the negative cable on the battery for a minute or so. I don't know how the reply vs testimonial works. I get few of either. I think most people just fix the problem, then forget to respond. I'd like to know if my suggestions work... not for applause, but to know my time is of value. Thanks.

SOURCE: my ck eng lite just came on the lights in the van

What happen is most likely you lost battery power for an instant. This was long enough for the computer sensors to send a weak signal to the computer so the computer saw numbers that were out of range. Most likely you have a bad relay or connection somewhere. Start with cleaning the battery terminals and inspect in the fuse boxes for corrosion. If you have a ECM relay or fuse or one that goes to the alternator check them. Switch the Relays around if you have some that are the same being sure to note which ones went where.

Battery being drained on 2000 Expedition

you should remove your alternator and take it into an auto parts store and they can test it for you.
this alt had an internal regulator which can be replaced easy.
your auto parts store will be able to full feld your alt to bypass the regulator. this is how you test it to see if the regulator is bad.

you didnt say how many miles are on this truck .
most of these ford alt will last 120,000 or more
on the back side of the alt you will see the replaceable regulator.
