I think there should be another fuse box located inside the vehicle possibly under the dash panel on the Nearside.

www.edmonds.com for owner manuals online I also have a 2000 expedition and it is normally one of the coil packs is out if you have an autozone near you they will put it on the tester for free and that way you will know what is wrong and if it is the coil pack if you are standing in front of the truck looking at the engine this is how the cylinder location is on the passanger side back to the back of the engine is one thru four and on driverside is five thru eight so when they tell you which coil pack is bad you will know which one to replace and you can get just the boot and a new spring and replace that for around $6 to $8 then replacing the whole thing for around $65. try www.autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you

Since you've ruled out the fuse and the brake sensor switch, based on this diagram from Chilton's: http://www.chiltonlibrary.com/content/images/WD/Ford/167/WD_Ford_167939.pdf
I'm guessing the shift lock actuator itself. I found this is a common Ford problem and found a nice description on how to troubleshoot it. Click below to see Step by step instructions. Hope this helps and best of luck with your problem.

Truck will start but engine dies and service engine soon light comes on/truck was idleing fine for 10 minutes then began to hesitate then shut off when first happened


When the engine dies the Check eng light is supposed to come on. You need to do a fault code test on the OBD2 engine control module.

My Chrysler 300 won't start. Problem is not battery or fuses. Not getting 12 volts to 5 amp fuse (fuse is good) for control voltage to starter relay. Applied 12 volts to fuse socket with ignition s


PLease, check if the check engine light lit up when you turn the switch, if it doesn't lit up, your EMC (computer) is not getting any electricity. And that could be the reason that you the fuses are OK but it won't start.

wont CRANK or CRANKS Fast but will not start , which is it?
the fuses blew or the battery is dead (discharged)
battery voltage is 12.6vdc rested, if not and is lower, its discharged.

did warning lights come on before the STALL? (died is stall)
if yes, and the charge lamp came on, and was ignored this is normal
for the battery to die. with alternator dead.

try jumper cable starts yet? that be next after fuses. and battery volts. (no cranking)
if it cranks fast, still fuses. check. then check for spark if not a diesel. some GV have Diesels, (3 kinds too)

Try or (have your mechanic) remove oil pressure switch and clean. They gum up and it's a safety feature that when car is in accident and/or roll over, when oil pressure drops (eng quits) power to fuel pump shuts off. Sticking oil pressure switch is common on Benz Diesels

Car starts, then dies within 2or3 seconds.


Try this start eng and before it dies disconnect the starter solenoid, and hold the ignition in the crank position like you are starting it, if the engine remains running replace the ignition switch, they come apart and cause this issue
