Question about 2007 Ford Expedition EL XLT

1 Answer

Hello- was driving my expedition el and when I stopped at the store and got back in it won't even turn over. The lights ficker- could it be a wire shortage? We jumped it and it started immediately and I drove it home. I turned it off and then tried to crank immediately and wouldn't turn over again. The lights started flashing on and off and the door locks started going on and off. Any ideas?

I noticed the year model of your Ford, it may be under warranty for some of the parts. First, clean your battery connections. If that does not help, get your battery tested as it may be shorting out.

The negative battery cable usually mounts low on the engine. Check the end of the negative cable for corrosion or a loose mounting nut.

You can get the battery and the starter tested at Autozone or Oreillys for free, as well as an engine scan. The battery would be your responsibility, but the starter may still have warranty. The other electrical parts may be under Warranty.

The lights flashing could be part of the Alarm system but the locks would indicate a short in the power supply.

I was hooking on a boat trailer to my 2008 Ford Expedition, all lights work except running lights when hooked to my truck, I don't know what fuse I have blown

IF you have this trailer with this vehicle before the problem will probably in the wiring in the plug. Loose broken or corroded away. Check condition of the light sockets and earth points and wiring back to the plug

Odometer won't work unless headlights turned off, radio lights dim, blinker won't blink all the time now battery light comes on but battery tests good. Intermittent issues getting worse. Horn

You probably have a bad ground in the electronic instrument cluster, or cluster connection to wiring harness. I would recomend you have a qualified auto tech diagnose it. It is not a easy fix.

I have a ford expedition el 2007, my problem is that the starter won't turn on although it works .. i need to know what's wrong asap plz

Click on the link.
Starter wiring, early production.
My info says your security system is starter disable, the security will also disable fuel injectors.
In the diagram, pull starter relay, use jumper wire between cavities 30 and 87, if possible, the starter should crank. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set. Terminals 85 and 86 are the control side of relay. Terminals 30 and 87 are the load side of relay.
The control side of relay needs voltage and ground.
The load side of relay, terminal 30 is hot all the time. W/o testing I don't know the problem?

I have a 2002 Ford Expedition and the brake light will not turn off. We do not use the e-brake. can anyone help with this problem?

Your stop light switch has failed. This is the switch operated every time you operate the brake
pedal. This switch fails in one of two ways - always open (brakes lights don't work), or always
closed (brake lights won't turn off).

To replace a stoplight switch, first determine what type of switch you have.

If you have an electrical switch mounted to the brake pedal in the passenger compartment:

* Unplug the wire connector at the back of the switch.
* Unscrew the switch.
* Replace with a new switch. Adjust the adjustment nut as needed.
* Plug the wires back in.

If you have a hydraulic pressure switch that is mounted in the brake master cylinder:

* Mark and disconnect the wires.
* Unscrew the switch.
* Screw the replacement switch in.
* Reconnect the wires.

I had the same problem with my 2007 Ford Expedition EL Limited. The dealership suspected the heater control module on the center console is malfunctioning/tripping. They reset this by unplugging the it then re-plug after about 3 minutes.
You can do this yourself, too.
To do this, take off the bottom-most center console cover, then lift up the whole stereo cover to expose the wiring behind it. You will see the back of the heater control module with two (2) plugs (black and blue). Unplug the blue one then wait for a couple of minutes before plugging in again.
turn on the ignition and you should see the display on the dash back to normal, then start.
