Hello, I'll take a shot at solving this one. It would either be a chaffed wire in the steering column or a bad Interlock switch under the dash by the pedal levers. Check wire connectors for corrosion on either end of the steering column. Check the Interlock first.

To remove the plastic cover on the Column you will need to pull the Ignition lock. You will need to disconnect the NEG battery cable and have the Key turned to either ACC. or RUN position to remove the cylinder after pressing the spring lock under the Ignition switch. There is a hole under the keyswitch to put a punch and press upwards to release the lock cylinder. This is necessary to remove because of the flare on the cylinder core preventing the plastic cover from clearing the lock.

You will need to tilt the steering wheel to remove the plastic cover. Then reconnect the Battery and test the circuits. Would like to know what you finally find as the problem to add to my bag of tricks.

I hope my solution is very helpful in fixing your Expedition.

Have a2006 ford expedition police model with radio not working fuses are good put in aftermarket radio and still no power radio has two ports but there is only one harness conecter with antena

There may be another fuse I had a Ford Taurus and had a hard time finding the other fuse it had two. it was not marked. I would check them all, maybe under the hood as well. Not 100% sure you have two but if you have not checked all the fuses it may be worth a shot before you start tracing wires. Good luck.

How do I wire an after market radio in a 1998 Ford Expedition?

Easiest and best way to put a aftermarket radio in any vehicle is to buy a radio plug adapter at Walmart for $10. No factory wires cut just wire the plug to the radio and plug it in.

Everytime it rains, when i put the car in drive or reverse the radio cuts off and windshield wipers stop working. When its in park or neutral, they both work fine. What is the problem?

Ours was doing the same thing. The windshield had been replaced by the previous owner and was not sealed well. We had the windshield replaced correctly and that took care of the problem. The water was leaking down into the fuse box and creating havoc.

Your post is ambiguous, I am not sure if you are saying that is a whole list of things that don't work, if that is the case I think you have a lost the main feed to part of your fusebox.Have you done any basic voltage checks?

2 ways of dealing with this. Install a new motor or put up with it until you install a new motor. I usually give it a very light tap with a hammer or a wrench & they start working fine at least for a while

The wiper motor replacement is not a difficult operation, just ensure connectors are firmly attached to the motor, and that wipers are working after installing the new motor.
