Question about 1999 Ford Expedition
This is very strange because of How the low range is engaged. I drive a 1999 F150 4x4 which has the same dash and controls for the 4x4 as your Expedition. I do know that the fan control switch is unfortunately the same shape and very close to the 4x4 switch. It is easy to grab the wrong knob and turn the wrong thing than was intended.
My initial impression is if it is possible, your girl could have reached over to move the fan switch and actual grabbed the 4x4 switch instead. Or you were warming up the Expedition and meant to turn up the fan and instead turned the 4x4 switch to Low. Or a backpack she was moving with schoolbooks could have hit the switch. What puzzles me is that to go into Low range, you need a foot on the Brake and simultaneously need the gearshift in Neutral and the 4x4 selector in Low. That is 3 things to make the low range happen.
Even if your foot was on the Brake and the sensors caught the gearshift going through Neutral on its travel to Park, the 4x4 Selector would have to be in Low. There is one problem you can have with the 4x4 Selector.***The Selector has 3 Resistors and a LED bulb.***
You stated the Selector switch was good. This would mean there were 3 different Voltages under the vehicle. Sometimes when the LED bulb burns out, it shifts the Voltage out of range for the Servo, and although the Selector says one thing, the Voltage at the Servo has the wrong value for that function. Since the dash light and the Servo agree on Low, it would seem the Selector is out of sync with the other 2 parts.
I hope my solution is very helpful in solving your problem.
