Its your GEM and fuse panel. They sometimes do that and the way to fix it is to replace the GEM and fuse panel. Mine did the exact same thing. The dealer wants an arm and a leg but they are easy to replace yourself, except the module flash the dealer has to do for about $175-$200.

MY 2000 FORD EXPEDITION WILL NOT CRANK. ALL THE INTERIOR LIGHTS AND EVERYTHING ON OUTSIDE WILL WORK WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE RADIO. I CAN DRIVE IT ONE MINUTE AND THE NEXT MINUTE IT WILL NOT SAY ANYTHING. THE LAST TIME IT DID THIS THE REMOTE WOULD NOT UNLOCK THE DOORS NOR MOVE THE SEATS TO THE CORRECT SETTING. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHETHER SOMEONE HAS HAD SIMILAR PROBLEMS AND WHAT WAS THE SOLUTION? THE FORD DEALERSHIP CANNOT FIND ANYTHING EITHER BECAUSE EVERYTIME WE CAN HAVE IT TOWED AND IT COMES OFF THE WRECKER; THE EXPEDITION STARTS RIGHT ON UP. HELP HELP HELP!

What is happening is that water is leaking in from a small leak in the window and getting into the Fuse Box and GEM. I took them out and dried them out and put a couple of holes in the bottom of the plastic cover and it has been working fine for me. The GEM is on the back bottom of the fuse box.

Wipers stopped working. Checked fuse and its fine.
Everything else in perfect working condition. Ford said GEM needs to be replaced. Did so at a cost of $687. Left shop and radio, clock and speedometer stopped working after Ford worked on car overnight. They say coincidence. I'm not buying it. What say you? Did they take advantage of a woman? Car is back in shop, gave me a rental and I am very frustrated.

on my 2000 ford expedition, my radio comes on when it wants to, the overhead interior lights work when they want to, when i try to cut the car off, it doesn't want to cut off, and the vehicle makes a funny noise when it doesn't want to cut off.
