Your fob or key isn't being recognized. It may need replacement. If it's not the key or fob, it's probably the radio (radios often control things like anti-theft or keyless entry). I recommend talking to a car locksmith.

98 Ford Exp.4X4. Cranks fine but after in drive will start to flutter as I brake and cut off.


Suspect a brake servo diaphragm has faild so when you apply the brake its suckingf in air causing it to cut the engine out ,the grinding is possible the front brake pads ,or the disks or rotors as you colonialists call them are worn and the lip on the edge is so intense that the brake pads are now touching this lip ,common fault they dont make steel like they used too

98 FORD EXPEDITION ACCELERATION ISSUES


Do you have a check engine light blinking when this problem occurs? I assume you do because if it is missing and sputtering like you say the engine control computer would detect that and turn on the check engine light. Next step is to have the systems fault codes read through the diagnostic port under the dash in front of the driver, Autozone and others does this test for free.

2003 ford expedition will not crank below 50 degrees. Security light on the dash will flash real fast. motor will turn over just will not crank. later in the day when it warms up it will start right up and...


It can be as simply as a bad battery. The Antitheft system views a low battery as an attempted theft action. Then the Antitheft cuts cranking voltage to around 7 Volts to prevent the engine from starting.

Battery voltage drops in cold weather. This would explain your problem and the activation of the Antitheft light.

Please rate my info. You might try adding a battery charger for a few minutes before you try starting it and see what effects it has.

Another idea is to turn off the A/C when cranking. The A/C clutch is a big drag on the system AND is temperature controlled to disengage the clutch at lower outside temperatures. If this control is not working, the A/C would not disengage.

You can get the starter tested on the vehicle with a DRAW test. The battery can be tested too. FREE at most big parts stores like Autozone.

I have a 98 expedition that starts every time but shuts down everytime too.


When you start it up don't completely release the key from the crank position, let off just enough to stop the starter, if the engine continues to run the ignition switch is defective, a common problem in this year. This is not the lock cylinder but the electrical switch located down at the bottom top of the steering column that the ignition key cylinder actuates via a long steel rod.

I would check the ignition switch and also try a diffrent key, the antitheft may be kicking in, ive had a few of these with bad computers, the dealer should of given a better answer than that, i would start with the ignition switch but not the key part i mean the electrical ignition switch.theres also a tsb on the antitheft system, theres a problem with thee ignition lock, you will need to have the system checked i would taje it to another dealer as you will need a scan tool to check. hope this helps.
