Yes. You have to take the car to a ford dealer and have the new key programmed. This should solve your problem. Good luck.

I have a 98 ford expodtion lost the key and tor into the ignion plz help.


OK. So you lost your key. People do that all the time. That's what spare keys are for. But you apparently don't have a spare. So you tore into the ignition to try to get the vehicle to start. Now you are realizing that the vehicle has safeguards to prevent just that from happening (we call what you tried to do "hot wiring"). The reason that the car is designed that way is to prevent theft and therefore reduce insurance costs. Money saved in order to have a spare key.

So you made some stup1d mistakes.

  1. You lost your key.
  2. You didn't have a spare key.
  3. You destroyed your vehicles ignition system
And now you want help. Unfortunately, you can't fix stup1d.
Call the dealer, get it towed, have it repaired, get a new key AND a spare. And after you spend that $1000.00, consider it a lesson learned.

Why won't my 98 expedition crank after changing the battery?


I would look at the main power fuse in the main fuse block. Could possibly have a fried relay.

I replaced the battery the 98 ford expedition still won't start it will crank but will not turn over


If it is fuel injected check for fuel pressure at the fuel rails. If it has a carburetor then try pouring a little gas in the carburetor and see if it will start. If you have no pressure at the fuel rails or the motor starts after adding fuel directly then the problem is the fuel pump.

My ford expedition won't start i change the fuel


If it a diesel then you must be aware that when changing a filter and pump they must be full of fuel, otherwise it won't **** the fuel into the engine.

1998 ford exped v8 battery is good, but turn ignition key, battery goes dead. have a clickng sound in fuse box, battery will jump off and stay running but when i turn it off will not start back up


battery is low on voltage, it is either bad or the alternator is bad. after you jump start check volts at the battery . if volts are below 13.00 the alt is most likely bad. if volts are about 14.00 alt is good. battery is bad.

I CAN tell you that its probably not your coils packs. Possibly yoyur computer if you haven't gotten it fixed yet. But if you have I would like to know what it might have been.
