Usually grounded wire--to in tank fuel meter--coolant temp sending unit--or voltage regulator (alternator).--Check prior repairs for hint .What has been removed and or replaced recently??? Fuel pump or tank? Intake Manifold? Alternator? start looking for pinched wire and or shorted component there.

SOURCE: my 1997 ford expedition is only blowing cold air,

Sounds like the common blend door failure on the Expedition. The problem is either with the heater core not getting hot, or the blend door not diverting air through the core. This is a common problem that Fords have. It is caused by the blend door getting stuck. This door is located behind the glove box and it controls the flow of Heat and A/C. Its probably stuck or broken, allowing the cold air from outside to come in instead of the heat from the heater core.
The heater core is difficult to change on the Ford trucks. They have it buried in the plenum box and you have to remove the steering wheel, steering column, dash, evacuate the refrigerant system, drain the radiator, and remove the plenum box to get to the core.

Replacing the core is easy, getting to it is a day's work. The Expedition is particularly difficult to get to. It is almost above the transmission tunnel and well buried behind the dash. The Expedition uses the same plenum box as the F150, so any information on that system applies to the Expedition/Navigator.

You need to be sure that the heater core is really the problem before tackling this job. If you have a pool of coolant on the floor, you'll have to go after the core. If the problem is lack of heat, there are some things you need to eliminate before tearing into the truck. You need to make sure that coolant is flowing through the core. Check the temperature of the heater hoses going into the firewall when the engine is cool and see if they warm up together as the engine warms up. If both hoses get hot at about the same rate, this is a good indication that coolant is flowing through the core. You can also remove the hoses and flush the core with a water hose splice from Home Depot and a water hose. Water should flow unobstructed through the core.

If it appears that coolant is flowing and you don't have obvious leaks, the next step is to check the blend door. This door controls the air flow through the heater core and failure is common on Ford trucks. When the door breaks, it can block the flow of air through the core and kill heat and will also have an impact on AC. If the system seems to work intermittently, it's a good indication that the door is broken and rattling around randomly blocking or opening the passage to the core.

For diagnostic information on how to check the operation of the blend door and a cheap easy fix, check the heatertreater listing on Ebay or the web site at heatertreater.net. The dealer fix for the blend door is basically the same procedure for replacing the heater core, so it will be expensive. The HeaterTreater alternative will solve the problem at a fraction of the cost and work and is well within the capability of the average shade tree mechanic.

You can try to fix it yourself if you check THIS VIDEO: Ford Expedition Lincoln Navigator


Hope helps.

SOURCE: Temperature gauge fluctuates and the heater blows cold air

Definitely check your fluid level in your radiator. Top it off all the way. I've seen that happen multiple times on cars that were low on anti-freeze. If that doesn't work try replacing your thermostat. It's cheap and the easiest place to start if topping off the fluid doesn't get you fixed up.

Dashboard In a 1997 ford expedition won't come on


If you are talking about the instrument panel and radio lights, one possibility is a broken panel light dimmer rheostat (This is not the same as the headlight dimmer switch). Try turning it to full brightness. If at some point the lights suddenly come on, that's definitely your problem. If the lights don't come on, it could still be broken.

I have seen an older vehicle driven by a person who didn't notice the instrument panel lamps were burning out until the last one went - maybe all you have to do is replace all of the bulbs. :)

Also, check the instrument panel fuse. If it's blown, you'll have to track down the wiring problem that caused the fuse to blow. Merely replacing the fuse is just asking for the problem to happen again at the worst possible moment - such as on a dark road on a dark night where there is a known speed trap, when you're low on fuel, and suddenly you're unable to see either the speedometer or the fuel gauge.

1997 ford expedition the fuse for the gauge blowing when I turn on the key switch what cause that


Impossible to tell without knowing what fuse number is blowing, along with some basic electrical troubleshooting.
Common suspects include:
altered factory stereo
Aftermarket alarm system
chafed wiring
defective instrument lamp
defective instrument panel

1987 Chevy silverado gauge / idle fuse keeps blowing


The 20amp ga/idle fuse powers a hot fuel module which powers the oil pressure switch, the fuel pump relay, and the fuel gauge in the tank.
Any of the four components including the fuel pump can blow the fuse.

My air conditioning is not cold?


First thing would be to check and see if the freon charge is low.
You would need a special gauge to check it.

You can't reset the light by removing the battery cable. It must be turned off with a scan-tool. However, if the light is on you need to pull the code(s) that caused it to come on in the first place, diagnose the problem, make repair, turn off the light and re-test.

The a/c blowing warm air is a separate issue. Perform basic a/c troubleshooting. Start by attaching a manifold gauge set to check the charge level. Report results back here if you have trouble.

Instrument cluster failure causes fuse #29 to blow.


ok it could be quite simple
lets look at wrong size fuse
example 15 and you need a 25 fuse
also if you did any work on vehicle its quite possible that you grounded something out wrong retrace your work and fix accordingly
bad cluster relay is another problem that would cause these problems
