This is my family vehicle and I am deeply concerned that this may cause an electrical fire or unwnated electrical activity when the car is unattended. The vehicle was not repaired. A: No, there is nothing in the fuse box that needs programming, if your dealer tells you this they are being dishonest. There are many threads on this subject here on the forum. I know you guys have had a lot of questions, and I have summarized a few of the most popular questions below. The last time it happened it actually got so hot it burned the circuit board itself.
As always we are happy to help! The video above shows how to replace blown fuses in the interior fuse box of your 2004 Ford Expedition in addition to the fuse panel diagram location. At this present time the problem still has not been solved therefore I am forced to be inside before night fall. Both the 03 and 04 expy have had problems with the fuel pump relay which is on the circuit board inside of the fuse box. Kind regards, Grumps Bedrck47: Thank you for your reply. While driving 75 mph, the engine stalled without warning. Should have done so earlier but was not in the mood to pull trim panels they've got it just so you can't get to the wiring. I was fortunate not to be in a lot of traffic when my failure occurred, but the next person may not be so lucky.
I was recently having problems with my wife's 2004 expedition intermittently starting would crank and turn over but would not stay running and died once when driving. Does it even have one? A: Usually Not, Unless your old ground strap is corroded or broken, you can simply attach the ground strap to the new fuse box, saving you about an hour. If you could shoot me the method for bypassing this relay so I can get the truck to a safer location, I would really appreciate it. A: The fuse boxes have production dates on them, All of our fuse boxes we sell are produced within the lat 6 months, we are seeing them sometimes produced just a week or 2 earlier. The contact had changed the battery several times, but the vehicle continued to have the problem. I will start pricing this board just in case I need a new one. Just call, or contact us with any more questions.
The dealer stated that the fuse box and gem module multi-function failed due to a water leak from the windshield. Q: Whats the difference between the years? The more electronics your Expedition has, the more fuses it has. Some components may have multiple fuses, so make sure you check all of the fuses that are linked to the component in question. Q: My Ford dealer says the fuse box had to be programmed and want to charge extra labor, is this true? The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the main fuse block needed to be replaced. If your Expedition is experiencing electrical problems, you should always check the fuses first, because they are relatively easy to check and cheap to change.
The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. It is not mounted near the rear wheel well. Kind regards, Grumps I would also check fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Some Fords have multiple interior fuse boxes even the trunk - the video above will show you where the interior fuse box of your 2004 Expedition is located. Then jim keim told me it would be another 200. It is not above the fuel tank as far as I can tell , and it's not on either side of the chassis under the doors or the bumper. The dealer repaired the failure.
So I did some research on the internet and found Sparky's post about relay which made sense in our case. The new fuse boxes have been improved. So it looks like this truck still uses the older, return line setup. This is a safety concern that should should be attended to immediately. Hope this helps someone as sparky's post helped me. The cause of failure has not been diagnosed.
There is a leak in the wheel well. I apologize if this post is a bit rash, but I am frustrated. Thanks, again for replying back. Q: Do I have to replace the Ground strap that comes with the new fuse box? There is a great step by step guide here. The contact witnessed smoke ascending from the fuse panel and disconnected the battery.
For nearly a year dome lights and windows continue to malfunction after replacing fuses many times. Water was leaking into the vehicle, but the source was unknown. My car is just under 80k miles. This problem occurred anytime the vehicle was exposed to rain or snow. Q: How do I know I'm getting the newest version? Dealer insisted that this total shutdown had nothing to do with previous lost of power that I reported to them. I have spent the last 2 hours crawling around under this truck and cannot find it. If checking and replacing the fuse for the component in question doesn't work, we recommend seeking assistance from a trusted professional mechanic.
If it is the original pump it wouldn't hurt to put a new one in and also a new fuel filter. With the complete power failure, the dealer's service department found that a fire had occurred in the electrical junction box, burning several wires that had to be replaced. I find it incomprehensible that no one knows where this module is on a 2004 Expy. Hopefully Your most common question have been answered. Posted on Aug 14, 2013 Fuel pump relay is behind the radio to the left. This was once in a blue moon, but this past month, it's been daily - even several times a day. These problems were caused by a defect in the seal of the factory installed windshield leaking water into the cab of the vehicle.
