Sounds like electrical power is lost to engine.
So, power source is at starter relay. Check connection there. If you have a volt meter - use it. If not, rig up a 12V light and use it. Find the bad connection - starting at the starter relay. I guess that the lights (head lights, radio, etc.) work.
So, carefully clean battery power leads. The problem is in that part of the electrical system.

Shutting Down

Could be a relay, fuel pump, ignition coil, or several other things.
The charging system would only affect the condition of the battery.

2003 ford explorer shut-off while driving and it won't turn over, no sound when key is turn.

If the headlights work, I would check for voltage at the key switch and the major fuses.
If nothing works, I would start at the battery and work toward the fuse boxes. Could be a bad ground connection too.

Loud ticking noise under the hood of my 2003 ford explorer

if your lifters are sticking, you can try using MARVEL MYSTERY OIL. depending on the mileage and whether it's dual over head cam or over head valve ,their is a chance that a cam lobe could be worn or a rocker could be worn or slipped off. a lifter will collapes and some can even replaced without removing the head.

2003 ford explorer xlt 4.0 ,2 wd is making an air release purging type noise when shuting off the car. it lasts only 5 seconds or so. can any one help

it could be the pressure in the air conditioning system equalizing through the orfice tube. Usually if it's this the noise is most noticable inside the car, probably from the vents. The A/C will run when the defroster is on even if you don't have the A/C on.

2003 Ford Explorer wiper stays on after vehicle is turned off

Every wiper motor has a switch built into it that is supposed to shut off the wiper when it reaches it's 'home' position. Apparently that is getting stuck. If you're brave you can try taking it a apart and check it out, otherwise you probably need a new motor.

My 2003 explorer shut off on the highway. nothing happens when you try to start it.

fords have a fuel shut off valve, if it turns over and wont start, check that. it should say in your handbook where to locate it.
