#1601 of 1953 4th time slip differential repair..........When does it stop
Aug 22, 2006 (2:44 am)
I have a 2003 Expedition and I have just now (August 21st, 2006) had the 4th repair on the rear axle for the limited slip. I would say about every 9 months I have to have it repaired. Now my Ford dealership is making me pay for the very high price repair. When does it stop? At what point does FORD do something about this? I have 70,000 miles on this car and its been great other than the limited slip. Please help every 17,000 miles I have had to have repaired and its not cheap.
#1602 of 1953 Tranny groan. . . .???? . . .or self adjusting brakes . . . ?????
Aug 26, 2006 (6:30 pm)
yet ANOTHER problem with my 2003 Expy 4x4. . . awhile back i mentioned how the tranny clunks into 2nd on the decelleration at about 20 mph. . .well. . .the dealer found nothing wrong on the computer. . .go figure. . .and now the tranny groans just about ALL the time now on decelleration at about 30 mph to stop. . . it works fine. . no slip and all 4wd levels work fine. . . does anyone have this problem or is it something like the self adjusting brakes???? when i hose them down it seems to stop for awhile. I think it really is the tranny though cause also when i hit about 45mph. . . when it downshifts. . . it starts to groan at a very low rpm. . . do i need an adjustment or just a servicing????

there is also a fuse for the cigarette lighter under the hood or at least there is one on a 99 expedition

I just bought a (used) 2006 Expedition, we traded in our 1999 Expedition which we never had any probs with. Since the day we got it, it has pulled to the right and the steering wheel shimmies if I brake on the freeway. What the heck??? Took it to dealer they said the PSI on the tires were all off so they set them all the same. Manager said he test drove and no pulling or shimmying. Well it still did exactly the same thing! Took it back again and mechanic drove w/ me in the car and he called it "drift". I was sooo mad- its a definate pulling to the right, they did an allignment, put a weight on one tire, and again said it was fine. Well it still does it!!!! Now what!?

Take it to another dealer. . .I have had to do that on numberous occassions. I have had so many problems with my Expy in the 6 months that i had it, that i have come to the conclusion that either the dealers DONT know how to make proper repairs, are imcompetant, or Ford just lives up to the "american car' reputation. If Ford can ALLOW so many faults in steering and front ends, I am soon becoming sorry that I purchased my Expy.
#1607 of 1953 '03 Power seat fuse???? I can't find it.....
Sep 03, 2006 (9:19 am)
The driver side power seat is stuck to the absolute furthest point forward and I cannot locate the fuse that operates this. I assume it is blown but I just cannot find it. I have looked through the 03 owners guide and it appears to be space 109. Please help!!!!

Sep 03, 2006 (9:32 am)
I took out 108 and the passanger seat stopped working. So my assumption that 109 was the correct fuse should still play out. So, I moved 109 to 108 and 108 to 109 and the passanger seat still works. So it is obvious to me that if 109 is the correct fuse it is not blown.
Now, the drivers seat still doesn't work. Is there some other fuse some place else that runs this? Like, a secondary fuse under the seat? I am stumped.

Find a place with Hunter 9700 equipment. It will even help determine if you have wheels or tires that are out of round and need replacement.
#1610 of 1953 Expedition; Cranks, Won't Start, Has Gas; No Codes
Sep 07, 2006 (8:05 pm)
Kudos in advance if you can answer this one. 1999 Expedition Eddie Bauer; 5.4L 4X4; Never has a problem until now. Engine will crank, won't start; has no codes; emergency fuel cutoff hasn't tripped; has gas; fuel pump runs; "Theft" light goes off properly; in park; all electical systems function; key code is good; locking and unlocking door manually was only activity to get it running fine!; next day; cranks, won't start. Battery is fine; not idle air control; same response in neutral or park; MAF is clean;wet or dry same no difference; not a temperature issue; when last running it ran great (not a coil or plug); has compression; engine is multi-point fuel injected and single coils for each cylinder;OBD-II reports no codes; gas cap is sealed correctly;no ignition occurring;checking fuel to plugs and if it'll turns with carb cleaner in the intake; battery strong; gear position sensor, security system, or sensor issue seems plausible (again, no codes). I'd be honored if anyone can diagnose this issue, or share similar conditions and ultimate fixes. I'm a "gear-head" from way back...but this one's stumped me. TELL ME WHAT I'M OVERLOOKING?! PLEASE!? Thanks in advance & sorry for the long message. Wanted to give as many details as possible.
