Ford Expedition Accessories and Modifications



  • I recently purchased a cold air intake through ebay (big mistake) the instructions are very vague and tech support is non existent. there are a series of wires going to the air filter housing, but on the new cold air intake there is no hook up for these wires. the guy from "tech support" told me to leave them unplugged. Is this right? He couldn't tell me what they were for and I his lack of knowledge has raised some red flags. Is it o.k. to leave these wires loose? Please help! Thanks!
  • I have a problem with my door lock; Everything seems to work fine except when exiting the truck, the door lock does not unlock, front passenger door does unlock on exit, but the drivers door doesn't. I am disabled, and am grateful that I have the door code memorized, or I may have been in trouble had I left my keys inside. I assume it has something disconnected it unlocks with the key, code and the unlock button, just doesn't work as expected when I exit the vehicle.

    Also, I was wondering if I could install the temp/compass unit that goes near the rear view mirror if I can purchase one, are they all pre-wired?

    Just bought a new '06 EB Expedition 6 disc CD stereo system with SAT button/no nav. I thought I was good to go for listening to Sirius radio except the monthly fee. Didn't know I would still have to buy a tuner etc. Dealer wanted $550 and I thought that was way too much! Was I right? Where can I get what I need installed cheaper? I am a newbie to satellite radio so please be specific with any help (what I need and approx.cost). THANKS!
  • Please Help my w/ my DVD installation !!!!!!!!!!I have a 2003 Expedition w/ the sunroof and rear ceiling AC. I bought the vehicle with a rear ceiling DVD taken out. So, I purchased a factory DVD and found that the one prior was an aftermarket rigged up to plywood above the headliner. Since the factory model is heavier, it won't hold up to plywood. Besides, the rough dirt road that I live on will cause it to fall out. I need to know how to install this. I read about a support bar but no direction to find one. Also I need to know what wire harness is needed or is there a direct bolt in behind the headliner. I really would appreciate some insight since the dealers won't talk unless you have cash. Thanks for your time.
  • A single 40 series Flowmaster with dual turndowns has had my truck turning heads when I drive by. I plan on cutting my cats before to long, even though my check engine light my stay on until I get some O2 sensor simulators.

    I have a 2005 Eddie Bauer Exp w/Nav Radio, 6-disc changer and rear DVD entertainment system. Does anyone know of an adaptor that wires into the factory radio for my Ipod Nano? Id be willing to get rid of the cd changer to do it so is there an adptor that can wire directly in to that slot?

    I recently purchased a 2002 Expedition with the VCP option. VCP works fine, but I'd like to replace with a DVD without a lot of hassle. Does anyone have any experience with this? I'd like to be able to just pull out the VCP, stick in the DVD (located in center floor console) and plug in the DVD to the existing wires. Any recommendations?

    Did you ever find the answer to your question? I am interested in this also.

    I recently purchased an '06 Expedition without the fog lamps. I was wondering if there is anything else I need to do besides buy the fog lights to have them work. The expedition has the wiring harness already and all the fuses/relays to operate the lights, but they still don't work. What could be the problem?

    Would anyone happen to know what the part number is for the 05-06 Expedition 6 disc in-dash cd changer? Thanks, Ron

    I saw this question posted from a couple of years ago but without an answer - any help is appreciated

    We have a 99 Expo with the 3rd seat which does not have head restraints. With the kids getting bigger and the vehicle still running fine, is there a way to fix this e.g.,

    1. After market head restraints?
    2. Will a replacement 3rd row seat from a later year that did have the head restraints fit?
    3. Any other ideas??

  • I bought a 2006 Exp-limited in Jan. My brakes went out when I went to stop at a stop sign 8k mi. I didnt stop, cars had to swerve out of my way.I called my dealership, brought the truck in & they said it was the MAster Cyclinder. Now 3 weeks later w/ 10k miles on it the brakes went out again at a stop & almost smashed by a semi-truck! Now they cant find the problem but said I cant Have my truck back since its a safety issue. I said I dont want mine back & find me another of the same. WELL, they found an almost same but now they want me to pay the difference of a new 2006 vs my 7 mo old 2006. They want me to pay $9k!!!!Thats AFTER the so called 5k rebate. SO, beside my brakes out they are saying my truck is only worth about 28k after all the rebates & incentives. I paid 40K in Jan!!!! What is this crap???? Kimberly :mad:

    Go the lemon law route . Maybe u will make out better. You should get a refund minus the mileage allowance. Good Luck.I have an 04 Expy EB. I think its a great truck when it
    doesn't have a lemonade problem . Mine is fine after 23k, with just a few minor issues that have been fixed
  • I recently removed the cover and whole dash on my 98' Expy. Although they are different models, im sure they are somewhat similar in removal/installation. It is a pain in the "you know what"! I replaced my heater core, which requires pulling the whole dash. First, you have to start with the center console, then the foot trim on both driver and pass doors. You have to drop the steering column (but be very careful not to ruin/break the transmission shifter cord. After getting further into it, it is alot of work. Alot more then what is outlined in a manual. If you decide to go further into this, let me know. GOOD LUCK :confuse:

    Looking at getting a 2007 Expedition. Tried the EL today - in our driveway overnight. Nice vehicle but just too big for our purposes. Trading out for a std. Expedition tester tomorrow. If I pull the trigger it will be for a std. Expedition and we don't tow. I have been told the only purpose of this air suspension is if you tow. Please let me know your feelings. I am still going to go for the optional tow package as it will be good for resale and I like the idea of tranny cooling and the larger radiator.

    The air suspension also lowers the truck when its parked for easier egress.

  • I've got a problem that a lot of owners have with an actuator failure in the rear A/C. I know which one it is because I popped the top tray off and looked. However, I can't figure out how to remove the trim panel that covers it. I don't want to break the thing monkeying around.

    Does anyone know how to remove this interior panel? It's right by the third seat on the passenger side.
