#187 of 287 2003 Ford expedition electrical problems
Dec 27, 2010 (3:49 pm)
On my 2003 Ford expedition my windows sometimes will not roll up, also I noticed my radio is acting really weird when I try to turn it down with the knob it load ens the radio instead of lowering it also the CD player says error when I try to do anything with it. I use to be able to use my key less entry it would just take a long time for it to unlock I would have to put the code in several times well now it does not work at all. Has anyone ever experienced this and if you have what was the problem?

I currently have the same problem with the door ajar in the mess center as well as the pentals not functionly properly. What was the fix?

The pedals not moving is a common problem, there is an issue in the linkage in most cases. Check the fuse first just to make sure it isn't something simple. The door ajar message can be fixed in most cases by spraying the latch mechanisms with WD40. You need to douse them and slam the doors a few times. It is easier if you know exactly which one is doing it, but it wont hurt to do them all.

Well since the recommendation to change the blend door actuator which I did and it took care of the issue, now weeks later no noise but my new battery has gone completely dead after sitting in my driveway for 2 or 3 days. Is there anything else that would be killing my battery??? Could the alternator. I tried to with cable but no luck. I do get head lights when hooked up to charge but the motor won't turn. What could it be?

Autozone will check your alternator for free. Rear winshielf wiper has known to draw battery down if it sticks also a burnt stuck relay if you have had allot of clicking from your fuse box and your door atuator that will trigger on and turn the inside and courtesy lights on, are you sure you got the right one, just other things to look into if your alternator is not the issue

I was having the same problem, and it was our rear wiper froze up and was draining the battery. I hope that helps.

As soon as I saw your post, and before I read the responses, the rear wiper was my guess. Not sure what else it is fused with, but if it is with a bunch of non critical things you could pull the fuse to test the theory. Or if it is with critical stuff and you are planning on letting it sit for a few days, pull it anyway.

'98 Expedition, 5.0L, fairly new alternator, new plugs, about half the coils replaced, 160,000 miles and generally runs well.
My problem seems to have some similarity to what I'm seeing on this board with the exception that the vehicle has not died.....yet. There have been intermitant, short, lived problems as follows:
1. Battery light goes on and voltage meter maxes out, then returns to normal. This has happened a few times over the past three months.
2. Battery light goes on and voltage meter flucuates with engine RPM, then returns to normal,
3. Battery light goes on, then entire console goes dead, with screeching noises coming from speakers and loud relay clicks while engine continus to run smoothly. Returns to normal after a few to 30 seconds.
4. Console comes back on but then 4X4 indicator light won't go out.
5. After a night the car starts and runs normally.
6. Odometer light intermittantly goes out and back on.
I'm expecting the truck to die unexpectedly unless I can resolve this issue.

I have a question. were you able to get the window and radio working/fixed because I am suffocating in my truck. Can you tell me what you did? Was it the GEM Modular
