I have a ESP until 100K I have 42K .I was told on another site............. Automotive Forums.com.I had the same problem with my previous Expedition, a 2003 model. It are the latches, but don't bother adjusting them... I got hands on the below Ford service message. The dealer ordered the kit (Weatherstrip and latches), installed it, and all rattles where gone. Was done under warranty.

SOME 2003 EXPEDITION/NAVIGATOR VEHICLES MAY EXHIBIT A RATTLE/RUBBING/TICKING NOISE FROM ONE OR MORE DOORS DUE TO EXCESS MOVEMENT OF DOOR RELATIVE TO THE LATCH STRIKER PLATE. TO VERIFY, DRIVE VEHICLE AND MANUALLY PULL DOOR INBOARD WHILE NOISE IS PRESENT. IF NOISE IS UNCHANGED, SEE TSB 03-23-3. IF NOISE DECREASES, REPLACE THE WEATHERSTRIP AND/OR LATCH AND/OR SHEDLIP ON AFFECTED DOOR(S) AS NEEDED. UNITS BUILT AFTER 05/12/03 CONTAIN REVISED WEATHERSTRIPS; UNITS BUILT AFTER 7/21/03 CONTAIN REVISED LATCHES. DO NOT RESET DOORS - DOOR CLOSING EFFORTS WILL DECREASE IN 2 WEEKS AS SEALS AGE.

SHEDLIP: 4L1Z-7851222-AA (RIGHT); 4L1Z-7851223-AA (LEFT).
I PUT BLACK TAPE ON THE LATCH AND IT TOOK ALMOST ALL OF THE NOISE AWAY. I will replace them later , I wanted to see if it would work and it did

Our 99 Exped does the exact same thing.
Tap on the odometer and it appears again.
Happens on a random basis.
Any fixes for it yet?
#1348 of 1953 Problems with 2002 Expedition
Nov 17, 2005 (9:36 pm)
Maybe you all have an answer for me.....I have a 2002 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer and I have a problem with my brakes...My problem is an unusual and terrible shaking when the brakes are applied, it happens while slowing down between the 70 and 30 mph range. Once the vehicle has slowed down to 30 mph the vibration goes away....while accelerating to any speed range there is absolutely no vibration....this problem has gotten so bad that the whole steering column shakes while applying the brakes....anyone help?

I am a technician, and have a solution to your problem. The problem is that the brake rotors are warped. meaning that they have high spots and low spots, caused by overheating. (usually city driving, towing, using your brakes hard etc.) the fix for this is a brake job. I would recomend replacing the the rotors. you can machine them, but if they are as bad as you say, it will just come back. As the rotor turns the high spots push the pads back and the result is a brake pulsation. At highway speeds this results in a severe vibration. you dont feel it below 30 mph because the rotors are not turning fast enough to cause a vibration. If you can feel it in the steering wheel it is the fronts, if you feel it in the seat, it is the rears. You will need a whole brake job because the pads have already worn into the old rotors, And you have to take the pads out to replace the rotor anyway. Hope this helps, Justin

I found out it was the battery. It was malfunctioning so they replaced it and so far it's been good. Hopefully I won't experience any of the other problems that I've read about. Good luck!!

My ford dealers charged me close to $300 for the same problem. You got off cheap!

Problem fixed for $344.
Seems there are 2 Hall Effect sensors on the rear axle that sense speed. They replaced the first one and a different code appeared...still the 4x4 light flashed.
So they replaced the second sensor...and problem is gone.
Each sensor is about $53. Seemed to make sense, at 110.000 miles, to replace both so I wouldn't risk future problems between the 2 of them on the same circuit.
