I have a 2001 Ford Expedition, just all of sudden one day my power windows, air vents/ A/C does not want to work. My dash lights, turn signals, 4 way flashers dont work when my headlights are on either. All it does is make clicking sounds and lights on my dash show up when I push my window buttons or turn on my vents. The weather is hot, and having no A/C or air vents is unbearable.

Can someone please help me fix the problem I am having with my expedition? I posted once before about the electrical problems with my vehicle. I'm wanting to know if it is fixable to where I can do it myself or do I have to take it into someone to have it fixed. Mind you I am not "electrical " minded when it comes to my car. so, every possible help would be greatly appreciated..

Your problem does not resemble mine. Mine was caused by a leak in the weld on the drivers side in the windshield gutter underneath the rubber seal. Water had leaked in and caused problems in one of the electrical components. You should be able to find my posts that addressed the problem. However, I don't know if your problem is caused by the same thing.

Check your bearings had mine replaced and it worked great.

I had the exact same problem with my 2003 5.4 eddie bauer expedition. I replaced the entire fuse box due to melted/distorted connector on the back side. Takes about 1 hour and $500 bucks at Ford. Had to change the fuse box twice about every 75K miles. Got rid of the vehicle, just started falling apart.

After stopping to get gas, when I cranked my 2012 Ford Expedition, I could not shift out of Park. After trying seeral things, I pressed the TCS button and was able to shift from Park. However, then I lost sound on the radio and Sync and as I was driving I saw the displays on the dash come and go. Hoping that it would reset once I got home and turned the car off, I was disappointed to find that now the vehicle is parked in the garage and I cannot get it to shift out of Park. I have checked the fuse and taillights to make sure those weren't the problem and they weren't. Any suggestions--it's a holiday weekend and my vehicle is stuck in the garage!
#274 of 279 Electronic problems with new 2012 expedition
Jan 16, 2013 (4:03 pm)
I just bought a new 2012 XLT. After driving a few days realized that none of the buttons on the steering wheel light so I can't see to use the cruise control or answer the phone in the dark. I have had two prior expeditions and both lit. Also, my gear shift is not lit so I cannot see what gear I am in in the dark unless it is reverse because the camera lights up. I have had it back to the dealer and they can't find anything wrong.
I have also been communicating with Ford online. Today they told me they talked to the dealer and agree with what he says because he has been "trained". I can't imagine the technology has gone backwards and it is a safety hazard. Anyone have a 2012 expedition that can tell me if this is the same on your vehicle?

#276 of 279 2001 Ford Expedition No Power

2001 Ford Expedition
I left the lights on and the battery was dead. I jumped the vehicle and it started right up. When I disconnected the jumper cable, the vehicle died. I reconnected the cable and it will not turn over. No ignition, no lights, no horn. I let it charge for a few minutes before I disconnected the cable again.
Battery output is at about 9V.
I have the Owner's Guide with the fuse charts.
All of the fuses under the dash are still good. I can hear a faint, steady, slow (one per second maybe) ticking at the box like a relay but I cannot determine the particular one.
All of the fuses in the Power Distribution Box under the hood are good (Mini and Maxi.)
I removed the Maxi fuse for the "Junction Box Battery Feed" and get 9V across the terminals.
I removed the Maxi fuse for the "Ignition Switch Battery Feed (Run/Start Circuit)" and get NO voltage across the terminals.
I am going to try to find a schematic and continue troubleshooting, but I was hoping someone could shorten my search. I am a computer guy, not a car guy, so electricity doesn't bother me. I just don't know the flow to trace in sequence.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
