Expedition Triton 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 165,000 miles


Backing up I heard a ticking sound. I stopped, put it in park, then reverse, and no problem until I got on road and it wouldn't shift out of second gear. I tried overdrive and it downshifted very hard and was only at idle, tried four wheel drive had nothing. I made it home doing bout 35mph.

The next day went to start it and put it in gear nothing, and speedometer pegged out at 100 mph. I let it sit through winter and checked, all I could find and found solenoid on passenger side firewall to be corroded, cleaned it up. It fired and ran fine for a week until I put plate back on it. Now when you put it in gear it doesn't want to hardly move and overdrive light is blinking. Any ideas? HELP, TIRED OF DRIVING A CAR!!!

Expedition XLT 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission

i first thought i bought a great truck but then it started , when it rains or too much moisture, my truck thinks the keys are in the ignition and turned on. I go out to go to work at 5am and my truck battery is dead. so in order to stop from having a dead battery , i just unhook it every time i shut it off. it gets to be really a pain in the butt when you have to do that. but i cant afford to buy another vehicle , just got this one paid off . had to put tierod end and balljoint just two days ago. i would really like to know if anyone else is having these kind of problems. please let me know via email thank you

Expedition 4X4 XLT 5.4L V8

-Windshield wipers has a serious delay (around 10 seconds) before coming on after turning on at switch.

-Digital Odometer periodically turns off/on while driving

-Radio occationally turns on and off.

Ford dealership says that everything points to a faulty GEM Module and shoud be replaced. Tech was able to "trick" windshield washers into working (for now), so my Expedition would pass inspection, but that eventually, the gem module would completely fail.

I did not have it replaced, due to having 154,000 miles on it, it would have cost $850 to replace it, and, it passed inspection anyways. I have read all over the internet that this is an ongoing problem with Ford vehicles. Does the government safety unit not think the windshield wipers not coming on is not a huge safety issue? Not enough to warrant a recall?

I guess it will take this causing an accident before they will do something about it.

Expedition Ebbie Bauer

seem to happen when it is raining or damp outside. Panel lights blink, radio cuts in and out, air conditioner turns on by it's self, this is happening when the car is parked and shut off. I have to disconnect the battery to stop it. Any suggestions?
