Expecition, eddie bauer: 2004 expedition. truck will not crank

Customer Question

2004 expedition. truck will not crank or start . unhook battery and reconnect and it will start crank and start only in the first 15 seconds. It will run fine till you shut it off and try to restart: no crank. I discovered that fuse 102 (ingition power) can be pulled and reinserted and this will work the same as disconnecting battery. What's up with that?

I did put in a new battery and a new ignition switch. Still no crank or start except in first seconds after battery power applied.

I also switched starter relays with other like relays in the distribution box. the starter relay does "click" when key is put in start position.

Hello, when this happens does the theft light blink fast when it won't start?
