Question about 2000 Ford Expedition
This could be a number of things, however, make sure that the battery is indeed good, as I have had batteries that have tested good, but once I put in a new battery my car would start immediately.
Have the alternator tested, check all connections at the battery, the starter, and the ground which will run to either the chassi (frame) or the engine block, or a bracket that mounts to the engine block.
Also make sure all relays and fuses related to the battery, alternator, starter and ignition are good.
If this has a distributor, make sure the coil wire is secure at both sides. This alone will prevent it from cranking and/or starting. If you have coil pack(s), have it (them) tested; this (these) will also have a modular under them, which cannot be tested, so if you look at it, if it looks white, bubbly and/or melted, it needs replaced.
I will let you know that coil packs and the modular are spendy, so only replace any packs that are deemed (tested) bad.
Last, if this is equipped with a distributor, check the cap and rotor. If the rotor is cracked, is white on the metal end tip, and the metal points in the cap are white, and/or warn (grooved) and have caked material on them, replace them. Check all plug wires for frayed, or melted plastic. If any are in such conditions, replace all, (they come as a set with a coil wire for distributed systems)
Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
