Customer Question
I have 2003 ford expedition...
I have 2003 ford expedition 5.4 4wd. No start No crank. Buzzing noise coming from passenger side fuse box. Message center says error prndl for a moment and goes away. Turn key to start engine and nothing but a buzzing. I pulled all the relays starting with the starter one from the fuse box one by one and buzzing continues with key on and relays out. Relays do not have any corrosion on the contacts. What is my next move?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). No experts here are Just Answer employees, we do not get a paycheck or benefits from JA. We are independent contractors, only paid when you rate our answer.

Will it crank in neutral?

Is the battery voltage good at 12.6 volts?

With the starter relay removed, the key held in the start position are there 2 pins at the relay showing battery voltage?

It will not crank in neutral nor any other position. Voltage is good. Battery is new. Swapped in after problem started. I will have to check the voltage at the pins. Away from vehicle at moment, it quit at a friends house.

Also forgot to mention that I do not hear the fuel pump pressurizing the system. The buzzing sound stopped on one attempt to start and all I heard was clicking from the fuse box when key was moved to start position but still no fuel pump noise. The very next attempt about 30 sec later the buzzing started back up and still continues with no more clicking. I believe that clicking was the relay engaging. That only happened one 1 attempt to start.

Are there other relays not visible that are on the inside of the fuse box?
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

What relay is it your trying to find?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I was just trying to figure what was causing the buzzing because I still hear it with the relays out of the box.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Non serviceable relays built into the fuse box are:

trailer tow reverse lamp relay

fan clutch relay

battery saver relay

horn relay

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off. I am also sending an offer allowing me to upload diagrams or repair guides if that helps.

Thanks Chris

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
