Should the motor stay running when you unhook the battery on a 2000 ford expidition

Yes it will stay running as long as the altenator is working but thats not a good way to check the alt.It could send a voltage surge to the ecm or one of the other sensors and ruin the parts,that could get very expensive.

The body shop unhooked my car battery and know my anti-theft system is locked . how do i unlock it . they said something about they unhooked my alarm. PLEASE HELP!!

This worked on a 2000 so try it and see if it works on yours.

Disconnect both battery wires and "short" them together. This kills stored memory.

(1)Turn key to crank & then release. Security light still on. Wait till it goes off (maybe 15 minutes)
(2)Turn to off. Repeat step one.
(3)Turn to off. Repeat step one.
(4) Turn to off. Wait 20 seconds and start car.

Key must go to full off on each pass. Must have fully charged battery. Good Luck.

Even if this does not work a good testimonial would be appreciated

How do i unplug my daytime running lamps??? they will not shut off unless i unhook battery.....thanks holly

If you are talking about the lights inside of the car there is dimmer switch on the left of the steering wheel that is below the air vent. If that is turned all the way up the lights inside will stay on even if all the doors are shut. Turn that down and the lights inside should turn off. Hope this helps!

Flasher lights stayed flashing, no gages would work.

Try Re-Activating the Remote System to Lock, Unlock and back to Lock again several times. Does the original problem re-occur? If so there is a problem with the Remote System, and possibly with the Remote itself sticking. Try Lock and Unlock and disconnect the battery. Wait at least 5 to 30-minutes before reconnecting. The remote itself you can take apart and check to see if the depress button is sticking causing the signal to be constantly sent over and over again.

Headlights staying On

You probably have a faulty sentinel switch. It's supposed to shut off, has a bult in elctronic timer. Does it even have the sentinel switch?
