Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

My airbag flashes and then stays on. I took it to the dealer and they are saying that the alternator is bad, #4 cylinder is misfiring and need new plugs, wires and coil for $1,700 This doesn't make sense to me how this would have anything to do with airbag. Can you please help?!?

You should try taking it to a certified ford technician since the dealer ship couldn’t help this happens when they lift these trucks with airbags they don’t turn off the switch or the airbags are cracked.

Test revealed cylinder 5 is missing on my 98 expedition


You have a bad COP Ignition Coil or several

They only misfire whenever they feel like it

If you had professional software --you could road test in
Mode #06 & look at cylinder misfire counts

You need to buy a couple of coils & try in cylinder #5,
front one drivers side

If that isn't the correct one or you have several,walk the
other new coil to get to the bad ones

Disregard any other stray codes until the coil issues are
solved

If it stays on your have Class B misfire
If it flashes you have a Class A misfire that could
damage the exhaust converter

check the fuel pressure and run injector cleaner through the sustem
that will account for the misfires
the rest are gm specific codes so you will have to get them from a dealer service center

im a tech in the bronx and i dealt with the same code for the misfire. burt i realized that there wasnt any power to the coil of #2 cylinder. I replaced the sensor mounted on top of the air filter box, which solved this problem.

Motor is skipping, lacks power,ck eng. light is


A flashing light means you're actively misfiring. Have the ECU scanned to find out which cylinder it is. Bad coil packs are common and there is a recall for them. Call a dealer with your VIN number and if yours qualifies, you'll get four new ones free. If not, buy a coil pack for each cylinder that is indicated as misfiring and replace them. They're $35 at AutoZone and about $160 at an Audi dealer.

Hold light flashing and car wont start


I had a similar problem with the hold light ( i believe that problem is a separate problem from your cylinder misfiring). There is a sensor near or on the tranny that was bad. But, perhaps that sensor being messed up is causing the car to think it is in a different gear and causing the misfire?

2001 audi a4 CEL came on


I would start with the cylinder 4 spark plug and make sure it look good and is firing correctly.  After that I would look either at the final coil, ignition module and then o2 sensor.  These problems are so hard to diagnose and are trial and error so much of the time.
