#101 of 281 NO START "SOMETIMES" 2001 EXPEDITION
May 04, 2009 (6:23 pm)
Problem started MAY08. Cranked good but no start. Try an hour or so later,started fine. That went on for a month. Sometimes no start or start and run at about 300 rpm, accelerator had no effect. Took it to Ford,they had it a full week. It started for them,their diagnostic found no faults.Ford suggested a new battery. Had it replaced. No problem for ten months. Now it has started again. Don't think it is the battery, 12v after sitting over night and 10.5v while cranking.Good for 25 days,bad for 2 ok for 10 and counting. HELP! HELP! FORDSFOLLY

I had this same problem in December 2008 and we just now figured it out ... Seems the amp for the subwoofer has gone bad. We took the amp out and the radio works fine. Now to find a replacement amp

OK to all, I have finally pulled my dash completely apart and the problem went away temporarily and when I put it back to gether it came back. it is either the connector housing in the instrument display or it is the instrument display all together. No more banging the dash, I just left the two screws out that lock in the dash face plate and when the radio is not on or the windows don't go down, I just push in on the instrument panel and everything comes back on. I pulled the instrument panel part looks like some of the flat leadss are warped out a bit and apparently with the severe heet or humidity makes it worse and they must be spreading just enough to loose connectivity, I just push in on the display and everythingtarts working, now to find out the cost of a replacement

ok here goes. I have had all of the above problems, cranking in park, radio goes off and on ,sunroof stuck on stupid, so we changed the battery , starter, etc. Took it to my mechanic,thank god his wife had similar problems!!! He advised me that my winshield was leaking!!! Imagine that!!! The water leaks from the upper corners down the rubber seal onto the computer located on the passenger side(way under the dash). Went down to napa and my husband sealed the windshield"> with windshield sealant.I have never had the problem again!!! Even the slightest humidity will do this to the computer. I even went to Ford and they couldnt find the problem. Hope this helps everyone in this thread....
