Question about 1998 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Electrical accessories stay on after key is off

Intermittently the interior fan and radio will wither stay on after key is off or turn on by themselves while parked.  A strange solid beep tone can sometimes be heard from around the glove box area and it's not the same tone as the key warning.  Nothing seems to affect a fix; it just stops on it's own.

SOURCE: Interior Lights and Door Ajar light stay w/beeping noise.

Try spraying WD-40 into the door latching mechanism (door side). I learned this fix after two battery replacements, but have only had to spray twice in the more than seven years of ownership

The beeping noise is coming from the airbag module located behind the glove box. It will require a trip to a mechanic to get the issue resolved.

Stop 2006 Ford crown vic fro m beeping


Austin Parker... hello,

When car electronics DECDE to act strangely... it is ALWAYS a good time to check for BATTERY TERMINAL corrosion...
(If you are not comfortable playing with highly corrosive materials... IT'S SERVICE STATION TIME.

So...
You have removed the key... The car is fully in PARK...
BRAKES applied... Lights all turned off... (no lights on dash?).

Repeat your last exit cycle...

Get back in start the car... Make sure everything functions as normal Set your brake... Park, off the lights (everything)...

Put it in gear...

Still beeping... (write down your radio settings)

Time to do a Bill Gates... (hard power cycle)
Disconnect your negative battery lead
and take a 10 minute break...

Reconnect battery... start car & park it again... OK?

ELSE...

If it resumes beeping it will be time to beg, borrow or buy that OBD Reader you always wanted any-way!

HOPE this helps

My 2000 bravada oldsmobile wont start is it the sartaer


It depends upon what actually happens when you turn the key. If the engine turns over, but doesn't start, it is NOT the starter. If all you hear is a clicking sound, or the starter motor engages but doesn't have the power to turn it over, then it could be wither the starter or the battery. A quick and easy check when this happens is to turn on the interior light. If, when you turn the key and get the click or no activity, the interior light dims way down or goes completely out, it is probably the battery. If you turn the key and get nothing at all, things are more difficult. The interior lamp test should be performed. If the light goes out immediately, try the battery. If the light doesn't flicker or dim at all, then the problem could be the starter, the starter relay, the Park/Neutral Position (PNO) switch, the ignition switch, or the IGN E (Fuse 22) or IGN A (Fuse 34) fuse in the fuse block under the hood.

Turn off the interior lights in 04 Excursion w/ back doors open?


If you wait long enough, the lights will turn off by themselves. Or if you turn the ignition back to accessories setting (ACC) and the radio should stay on and the interior lights should go off. Let me know at FixYa if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.

sounds like you might have a problem with your ignition switch, it's sticking and acting like your key is in when it's out.

Headlights and Blinkers Go Out Intermittently


You will need to most likely replace the lock cylinder and the ignition switch, sounds like a worn out parts issue. This should cure your problems with the lights and any other strange electrical problems.
