Expedition 8-cyl

  • 109,089 miles
We have had a down pour not long ago on Saturday. The next day after using the Expedition once when it was turned off the power locks repeatedly lock and unlock (we had to take the fuse out to get it to stop). There is a clicking noise in the fuse box/on the passenger side where the fuse box is located. When the locks function on their own with every click the dash lights faintly flicker. With the power locks fuse removed the dash lights still flicker making the gauges jump with every flicker. It eventually stops. I've read on many forums of these similar problems. But Ford seems to turn the other way with these reported problems. I've called Ford already and there is no recalls. On the forums with these similar and same issues it says it was diagnosed as a leak into the fuse box by bad manufacturing windshield sealant. Some vehicles seem to function on their own even at night and there had been some that burst into flames and the loss of the vehicle was the result. This is the manufacturer's responsibility due to faulty put together and product causing electrical problems when water drips down into the fuse box. Please help us! we cannot afford the $1000's of dollars for this particular repair that is an ongoing issue for many other Ford Expedition and Ford F-150 and Ford Taurus vehicles!!!
