It sounds like you've got water in your electrics.

Option 1: Wait and let it evaporate normally. Keep the bonnet closed and let the engine run to warm things up. Alternatively, leave the bonnet open to allow the sun to do the job with the engine off.

Option 2: Get a can of water displacement spray (e.g. Damp Start) from an automotive shop and spray electrical connections.

Hope this helps.

How do you remove both cylinder heads on a 2003 ford expedition with a 5.4 liter engine?

A quick answer is you don't

There is way too much involved

First, you can bearly get up & into that
engine bay & it would take an entire
day just to remove everything, to get
to the heads & then remove them.

The timing chains alone are not something
you could figure out.

That will be a $4,000.00 job

Ford 2003 Expedition EB. Check Charging System

Its probably the alternator. It will need to be tested on the vehicle with the engine running and the light illuminated. Measure the battery voltage with the engine running. It should be at least 13.5 volts. If it is lower have the alternator tested at a shop with a charging system tester.
