This is a pretty common issue especially on fords that the owner uses the tilt steering a lot. What happens is the wires in the connector that goes to the back of the switch pull out of the connector. Usually the locks that hold the pins in plae end up breaking when this happens and even if you push the wires back into place they will not stay. For sells a new connector with wires to correct this problem.

Loose steering wheel shaft on 97 EXP. when I hit a bump i get the death wobble I checked everything else and and so did pep boys, tire discounters and bob somerell Tires,all is good. Has anyone had this...


Hello, Sir is your 1997 Ford Expedition a 4X4? It sounds like the drag line and it's ball joints.
There is a bent heavy steel arm at the end of steering box. On the end of this pitman arm is the drag link and the drag link is hook to each front hub with a ball joint on each end and the pitman arm. This way when the steering wheel is turning both wheels in the front will follow each other.
If the ball joint are wore out on the drag link this will cause the front wheels to wobble.

Need to get the Ford Exp off the ground where the front wheels are free of a load. Now, just grab one of the front wheels and move it back and forth. There a good possiblity it rattle like marble in a car.
Also, check the upper and lower control arms that attached to each front hub. There are hugh ball joint in each control arm, upper and lower on each of the Ford Exp. Two per side four all together.
I hope this help you. GB...stewbison

The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer. The cause: while out in the woods I came across a small dip which cause my back left wheel to lift off the ground. The suspension...


I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

2001 ford expedition (trident v8) no hazard or turn signal lights


I have the same issue. There appears to be a bad harness connection, short term fix is to adjust the wheel up rather than down and see if that helps. You can take apart the steering assembly and see when the tension of moving the steering wheel down causes the connection to fail.

96 FORD EXPLORER XLT 4X4 LIGHT FLASHING


Does the 4x4 "actually" work because this is a signal that the system has a problem. Its like a check engine light that comes on or flashes when there is a problem with the engine or emission system.
