Question about 1999 Ford Expedition
Check down at the Starter. There was a problem with the wiring connections at the Starter. Since the main wire from the Battery is probably corroded or completely corroded thru, it will not matter how much power you put in the top. The bottom is disconnected.
There was, I believe a NHTSA letter on this problem (See NHTSA.Com) and some Ford assistance on this. It would probably help if you had a copy of this report to show a Dealer. But it has been 11 Years.
I fixed the end terminal by soldering a new end on the main wire. This was after completely removing the harness (Like wrestling a Python) from the vehicle. It is not a good time. Your best bet would probably Internet shop for an Aftermarket harness. But if time is important, check Autozone or Oreillys or NAPA for the same part. An Auto Electric shop can easily duplicate this harness from scratch.
It is always possible that your Starter is bad. You can visually eliminate the wiring ends as the source of the problem. The Starters are not easy to remove without 3 or more feet of socket extensions.
