Question about 2005 Ford Expedition

Electronic Throttle Control

My wife has been driving our 05 Expedition - Eddie Bauer and this has happened to her at least three times within the last six months. The vehicle has 90K miles and other than this issue we haven't had any problems. When the computer signals this Electronic Throttle Control problem it doesn't set a trouble code. I don't understand how the on board computer can notify the driver of an issue that is severe enough to cause the vehicle to die while in motion and not set a trouble code. Any insight into this issue would be greatly appreciated.

The ETC is located inline with the air intake hose. Take the air intake hose off, then take the ETC off. Go to advanced auto or autozone and get carb cleaner or throttle body cleaner. Give the ETC a good bath and put it back on that should fix the problem and save you $600 or more in repair. This is a typical problem with the ETC when you start to get high miles. Hope this helps it help me.

I have a 2006 Ford Expedition (Eddie Bauer edition). I love the car, but three times now it has just shut off at random while driving it. I receive a Engine Failsafe Mode message and the Check engine...


It's random failure of the ECM. I experienced the type of failure you describe in my '95 Windstar. Sudden total failure and check engine light on. Coasted to a stop (no traffic), let it sit for a few minutes with ignition turned off, then restarted and it ran fine.

here is the instructions,i had to type it out because the picture was too large.Its actually for my 2000 Ford,give it a try because it might work.

Before following the procedure,make sure that the ignition is OFF and all vehicle doors are closed.You must complete steps 1-7 within 30 seconds or the procedure will have to be repeated.If the procedure needs to be repeated,you must wait 30 seconds.
1.Turn the ignition key to ON.
2.Press the power door UNLOCK control three times.
3.Turn the ignition key form ON to OFF.
4.Press the power door UNLOCK control three times.
5.Turn the ignition back to ON,The horn will chirp.
6.Press the UNLOCK control,then press the lock control.The horn will chirp once if autolock was deactivated or twice(one short and one long chirp)if autolock was activated.
7.Turn the ignition to OFF.The horn will chirp once to confirm the procedure is complete...Page 89 of the owners manual

Location of Shift Solenoid in 1999 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer?


They are round "cans" with wires attached. You should have SSA, SSB, SSC, Torque converter and Pressure Control solenoids. They control pressures and have no mechanical linkage.

Check electronic throttle control


We have been experiencing same faults on a 2005 Expedition,with engine stopping and the message "Check electronic throttle". Ifirst went to AutoZone and they read the codes. They suggested replacing thethrottle sensor, which we did, but car stopped again. We had to replace thebattery in a month and this is the fix. The battery was almost 6 years old andwhen you first start your engine, it sucks too much load and gives these faultsto the computer. It never stopped since then (3 mo already). Sometimes we useto get the message 3 times a day.

Electronic Throttle control light came on and car died


We ended up taking the vehicle to a trusted auto repair shop. The codes came up indicating a failed throttle body, most likely in the electronics. After a few more pinpoint tests, the recommendation was to replace the throttle body. The cost for this repair was just under $500. Since there is no aftermarket on this part, Genuine Ford parts were used.
