Re: 1999 ford expedition
If you have verified that the fuses are OK, then the only possibilities left are: 1. the fuse holder itself or the contacts that holds/locks the fuse specifically for the clock and music display; or 2. the connector that goes from fuse block to the clock and music display.
Alternately, you may want to check on the grounding of the dashboard and/or the clock and music display assembly/circuitry.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Could be the key switch, or the neutral safety switch. Try cranking it in neutral. You may have to trace the circuit from the key switch to the starter to find the problem. Also the ground connections between the engine and battery.
we have 2000 exped. and seller didnt know code. Heard that it is located in the rear of the truck where the bumper jack is... and i couldn't figure it out. Went to dealer...yikes!! and paid 50.00 to have it reset to factory. had to weigh fustration...locked in keys... and inconvience against my time of not figuring it out.... took 15 minutes at ford....
Mine is doing the same exact thing. I recently took it to an oil change place here in town and they put the wrong oil 10W-30 in it and the wrong filter. It needs motorcraft 5W-30 from what I hear. Im taking it to the Ford dealership today. I feel your pain my friend, it's extremley annoying. I will keep you updated if the new oil fixes the problem. Also have you checked the oil sending unit?
The reason it did not read hot, on your temp. gauge, is cause your temp. sensor read's coolant or water temp only, not air, if cooling system is empty, coolant temp. sensor will not read, like an air temp. sensor well, more the likely there could be a coolant leak for cooling system to be empty, also could have damage your cylinder's head's, need to have a block test and cylinder compression test done to fine out if head's are damage.
First you need to check for spark and if that is okay you need to check for fuel pressure/volume. sounds like a possible bad fuel pump. you can also try hitting the fuel tank with a rubber mallet while cranking. If the van then starts you need a new fuel pump
