I have a 97 ford expedition the lights were staying on inside . When truck was off they would just turn on all of a sudden. I'm trying to check all of the fuses Because now my brake lights wont work but a whole row of fuses are not working plus the bottom half of the other 2 rows I've changed a few fuses but they are still showing that they don't work when I test them. Any ideas why half of 2 rows and 1 full row of fuses are not working

REPLY: This will sound crazy but it worked for me. My 98 exp had a similar problem in Dec. I even had to get it towed from the store's parking lot to my trusted mechanic. Turns out the ONLY thei wrong was that my "big key" - the main key died out. In other words, my mechanic told me that there is a chip inside of the main key head that can wear out and the only way to get around the problem is to 1) take it to Ford and have them reset or 2) use your backup key - which is what I am doing. My car would rev up and then die. BTW, my car has 178,000 miles on it so I didn't want to put another penny into it. Thanks to my trusted mechanic, I didn't have to. I did pay him $50 for his diagnosis though. Try that other key - worth a shot. Good luck!

I bought a used 1998 ford expedition eddie bauer edition and the remote control didnt unlock or lock the door and the controllers on the inside both side didn't work ether. I sat there for like 10 mins hitting the lock button and all of a supped it started working on everything. Worked like that for about 2 weeks and now it wont unlock or lock again. I have tried for 30 mins the past few day and it wont work again. Before it worked again the first time there was this loud ticking sound coming from behind the radio before the power door locks started working again. What is my problem?? Please Help?? I am going crazy.

I had the same exact problem. The code I was getting was P1747. After the first 2 mechanics I took it to couldn't figure it out I took it to the Ford dealership. It was a faulty Power Control Module and shorted out electronic pressure control solenoid inside the transmission pan. They replaced both. That fixed it.
