Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

2000 ford expedition eddie brauer edition - starts by itself

My ford has several problems, first we have a wireless starter on it that does not work, but it will turn on truck whenever it feels like it with no one pushing any buttons, wipers work off and on, and we keep going through batteries like crazy. Now you take out the key, the radio and clock stay on, blowers on, and lights will stay on, even with the key out. The truck also keeps dinging like the keys or light are on, but they are not.
Any suggestions would be nice!

    wipers work off and on

  • cvelguth May 12, 2009

    I first noticed problem when the heater blower was on with the key out of vehicle, Now it won't shift out of park, the windows won't roll up or down... I did trick the vehicle out of park by starting in neutral, and that was a mistake because 4wheel low engaged while i was driving down the road. I need to stop the leak before i replace the gem. Does anyone know what to do about stopping the water leak??

Whenever it rains the van shows fuel err and will not start until I wiggle computer many times...nothing is wet under hood but its a problem every time it rains and its getting tiresome.

Find out whether all FSBs have been incorporated. Check battery age and condition. Find out whether alternator and starter are due for replacement. My 2000 Windstar is on its seventh battery. Many earlier problems were traced to battery failure.

2011 ford focus 1.8 clicking noise when start engine

Could be several problems - check the battery terminals to make sure they are clean. Next check the battery to see if it is fully charged. If both those items checked are OK then the next step is to check the starter.

Now the starter has a selenoid which engages and provides power to the starter motor when you turn the key to the start position.

If you only get a clicking noise then it could be the selenoid valve itself or the starter motor.. Some fords have the selenoid mounted on the firewall others are mounted on the starter motor itself.

So what you need to do next is bypass the selenoid valve and provide power directly to the starter - if the starter turns the engine over then the selenoid valve is the problem. If the starter motor doesn't turn the engine over then it's the starter motor and a replacement is necessary.

Hope this info helps.

My brakes light turn on whenever I turn on my running lights.. so it looks like I am riding my brakes wherever I do I fix this problem?

I have a strange feeling that someone has inserted the bulbs 180 degrees off, otherwise it is a wiring problem or your brake light switch on the break pedal arm is stuck or bad... try these and get back to me if these things don't work...MK

98 jeep cherokee does not start straight away. No pattern just whenever it feels like it, nothing happens when the key gets turned. but other times it starts with no problem

Sounds like the fuel pump. Sometimes it'll start right up, others it'll crank for 30 seconds. Probably losing pressure. It's located in the fuel tank.

1997 windstar won't turn over when cold

this is caused by burned/worn/erroded contacts in the starter motor solenoid, testing the starter doen't always show this problem, but I assure u this is what is wrong, I have 20 years of Ford dealer work to back me on this fix. Thanks for using FixYa!

Starter will not turn over until the batt. cable is disconnected

Sounds to me like there is a short in the starting system that is causing this (or it's wired wrong). Ford starter solenoids are known for problems. The reason the starter will turn after the cable is disconnected is because the circuit (or in this case short circuit) has been broken . I'll bet if you replace the starter solenoid, your problem will be solved. I think it's just "shorting-to-ground". Good Luck!

1993 ford ranger starter turns won't crank

Youll have to take it out and check the condition of the ring gear through the starter hole use mirror and torch if you have to.Before taking the starter out turn engine over by hand to a different position then try to start with key.Try this several times if it doesnt work first time Why was the original starter replaced.Im assuming the starter you brought was reconditioned or new Did you check that the battery is still ok?
