I'm not sure, but the turn signal flasher may be behind the glove box, If it is, you probably heard it shorting out and blowing a fuse or fuses.

The starter solenoid relay is behind the firewall in front of the glove box. A weak battery will cause the relay to "chatter". You have a dead battery.

I dont think I have ever come across your exact problem.
I checked for TSB's regarding your problem, and there were
none.
I would recommend removing the instrument panel (I.P), and
checking the connections.
I would also check the connections at the ignition switch.
It is possible that one of the ignition wires is not being fed when this problem occurs. This could be caused by
a poor/broken connection, Worn ignition switch, or a remote car starter poorly installed or malfunctioning.

The next time this happens, grab a test light and remove panels for access to the wiring harness to the ignition switch. STAY AWAY FROM THE HARNESS FOR THE CLOCKSPRING AND AIRBAG. With the ignition on (in run) check for power at the dark blue wire, black&white wire, and the black&orange wire.
If one does not have power, then test it at the switch. If still no power, then replace the switch. If the wire has no power, but has power at the switch then repair the wire.

Truck start but nothing else work inside


What do you mean nothing else works ? interior lights , radio instrument cluster lights etc. The alarm light flashes while truck is running ? Let's be a little bit more specific if you can !

The accessory delay relay supplies power (B+) to the driver master window switch . This relay is located in the central junction box ,under dash panel right side . An this powers the windows , the instrument cluster energizes the relay .
Interior Illumination is controlled by same relay .

Whereis the power door lock rela for a 1998 Expedition. NOT the Eddie Bauer edition. The owners manual does not specify what the 5 relays are for on the fuse panel under the dash. My Expedition's jack


The relay your looking for is behind the right side of instrument panel , ford calls this a relay block , because there are three relays in it driver unlock relay , all lock and all unlock relay ! I cant be more specific , my diagram isn't very clear . You may have to take the glove box out to get at it.
