How to find an electrical disturbance in 1998 ford expedition


Normally this condition is the result of a poor body ground connection. Testing for this can be deceiving. At the static(nothing on) condition, testing can show a good ground. However when a circuit is excited, it has a determined resistance and a set current flow. If the ground connection to this or a branch circuit is loose, corroded, or broken wire. This will allow just enough connection to show as being good, but not good enough to complete the circuit with the required amount of connection when energized.

How to pinpoint and fix electrical disturbance in 1998 expedition?


Could be the ignition switch itself. Under the hood where all the wires go into the fusebox in the cab is a good pkace to start. You need to take the bolt/nut off and pull the box and wires apart. I have seen fuse blocks heavily corroded and cause problems as you are haveing. Also could be the ecm (aka)computer in your car is going bad. You can get a remanufactured one cheap. And it is simple and strait forward

What to look for? why is this electrical system malfuntioning?


Well that kind of sounds like a bad connection, but it was difficult understanding with no good punctuation... Have you checked the battery terminals? If not, do so, and have your alternator checked too. I've seen some really goofy stuff happen when some vehicles don't get enough power.

When I put the key in the ignition it doesn't try to start everything else comes on then shuts off. I drove it yesterday but now it won't work


The remote starter module is not getting an electrical signal when you turn the key to the on position after remote stating the vehicle. When you depress the brake without turning the key on the vehicle shuts down. The remote module thinks the key is off even when you turn it on. There is a loose connection or the remote start device is defective.

I have no power at all when the key is in , no light in the dash nothing


Do you have headlights with the headlight switch on? That would eliminate a battery connection problem. If things like headlights and brake lights work, one should next check that power is getting to the ignition switch. If you pull the connector under the dash off for the ignition switch, there should be a hot-at-all-times wire going to the ignition switch. Check with a test light or voltmeter. If no power to the switch, back to the fuse box by the battery-an ignition fuse may have blown. If power is available to the switch, suspect a bad ignition switch.

1991 Park Avenue: new battiery will not hold charge...


Check the following to see if your cars electrical system is causing a power drain.

*Make sure all headlights and interior lights, and accessories are off when vehicle is not in use.

*Have your alternator professionally tested to make sure the built in power regulator is not going bad. Also check that the alternator is putting out a proper charge during vehicle operation. (Use a digital multimeter, touch the test leads to the battery terminals while the car is running RED to positive+ and BLACK to negative-, being careful you don't cross the two and never let positive and negative touch. Multimeter should read 14 volts DC with the car running. If it reads under 14 volts, replace the alternator.

*Check for a bad grounding wire (usually the negative battery cable), if it's cracked, frayed, or bare wire is exposed replace it right away. It can drain the battery if the bare wire touches the metal of the vehicle.

* If your car is equipped with the twilight sentinel (automatic headlight feature) shut it off manually when your done using your car for the day. If the twilight sentinel is going bad, it can draw battery power even if the headlights are off.

*Have a test performed to make sure you don't have a faulty ignition switch. This can draw power even with the ignition key off.

*If all of the above test good, you likely have defective battery. Replace battery. Feel free to contact me if problems persist.

Good Luck!

Headlights have gone on without prompting


Any thing is possible. But I would start with a defective switch. Relay does what switch tells it to do.
Regarding Engine Control Relay usually hot at all times looks like you did a reverse battery drain test.
So far either headlight switch or relay and ECU relay.
This takes most techn's one hour to do .
After you finish testing the light switch and relay do the following test to make sure nothing else is draining your battery.
Remove the negative battery cable from its post and connect an ammeter red probe
to the negative battery post and the black probe to the negative battery cable.
Now start pulling fuses until the voltage on the meter returns to normal.
(anything above a half of a volt is too high) The fuse you pulled to get this
result is the affected circuit. Now you have to probe it from its B+ source to
the load
to find the short. Check all connectors for rust and the line for opens or
shorting to ground. Repair accordingly.

No power


You have probably missed re-connecting part of the electrical wiring- probably missed a ground connection..
Check you have re-connected:-
the main power supply via the fusible link (or in line maxifuse),
the battery negative terminal is correctly grounded to chassis/frame,
the motor ground connection to the chassis or battery negative.

92 toyota corolla dx lights wont shut off


Headlights are wired to receive a constant "hot" even when your keys are out of the ignition. Your problem, more than likely, is in the switch. Depending on what type of switch you have, you can expect to pay between $20-$80 for a new one.
