You might do better asking in Ford Expedition forums. Auto forums may be the best place to share problems and answers.


I have the same issue, my PATS is currently unplugged but the theft light does not Flash and the vehicle will not start. The theft light will flash briefly every couple seconds when the key is out of the ignition like normal so I know the bulb is good. The fuel pump will prime for maybe half a second and none or my guages are working at all. I've checked all relays and fuses, even combed through the wiring to look for burned or chewed wires but found nothing. The truck was running fine, I parked it for about a month and she just wouldn't start back up.


Fjoe Burton hasn't replied. Perhaps his problem was fixed and like many, neglected to post results.

Without knowing what you're driving, no assumptions can be made to suggest steps for troubleshooting. Some EFI systems like GMs cycle fuel pumps at ignition On time to pressurize the fuel rail just before starting up to lower cranking time. As most know, EFI systems allows instant starting in any temperature without any gas pedal input.

Hi Fjoe, I am not a mechanic by any means and this may be a long shot but I will share with you my experience.

On my Lexus I had an issue with it not starting. Somehow the remote fob was set on valet mode. After figuring out how to reset it worked well. 2) On a friends vehicle there was a shutoff switch under the dashboard which I bumped and that turned off the remote start. Of course you checked the battery and different places to see if you have power ie: 4 way flashers, headlights, and so on.

A long shot as I said but sometimes the simplest things cause a great deal of grief.
