Question about 2004 Ford Expedition
I would say it is something else. The most serious is the battery meter jumping to high. This means you have a short before the radio and instrument cluster. A grounding of the wire will pull all the power from the alternator in an attempt to feed the power demand of the short.
The short can be between the fuse and the underhood relays(which trip and break the circuit) or the short can be before the relay to the alternator.
There is a connector on the firewall where the hot (pos) cable comes from the battery post and joins a junction. This is where the charging system attaches to recharge the battery. If the wire from the alternator grounds there it will spike the battery meter. I can not say that the other things will short out exactly as your does from this fault, but it is something to look at.
