Water leak in the front windshield (following a few consecutive rainy days), causing electrical failure of the dome light, wipers, radio and gear selector. Ford service advised replacing the fuse box and gem module for $1,100. This is my family vehicle and I am deeply concerned that this may cause an electrical fire or unwnated electrical activity when the car is unattended. My car is just under 80k miles. I have done some research and can see that there are many others that are experiencing similar problems. This is a safety concern that should should be attended to immediately. I hope this can be resolved without taking legal action.

I am having severe electrical problems with the 2000 Ford eb Expedition. These problems were caused by a defect in the seal of the factory installed windshield leaking water into the cab of the vehicle. There have been many incidents where the vehicle has become incapacitated, and one instance when smoke emerged from the driver's side of the front dashboard water was seeping into the cab and accessing the fuse box. Upon contact a short was created, causing the climate control unit, heater and a/c unit fan to begin blowing when the key was removed from the ignition. This problem occurred anytime the vehicle was exposed to rain or snow.

I have been having the same problem with my 2001 Ford Expedition since March 2004. The problem is with the fuse that displays lights on the dash board. This fuse repeatedly blows. So I took the vehicle to allan vigil Ford in morrow, georgia and the repeatedly could not find the problem. At this present time the problem still has not been solved therefore I am forced to be inside before night fall.
While driving 70 mph fuse on the passenger's side caught on fire. The fire department disconnected the battery, and the flames began to settle.
There was a heavy rain the Expedition was parked outside. There was water on the floor mat. The headlights, windshield wipers, radio worked when the Expedition was off. Yet would not work when the car was on. The Expedition acted on its own. We took the Expedition to the dealership (jim keim Ford) where we purchased the vehicle. They charged us 893. 00 to fix the fuse panel, sensor panel and reseal the entire front window. Then jim keim told me it would be another 200. 00 if they broke the windsheild. I paid the money and have not had a problem since.
My husband happened to be walking up to my car and noticed the smoke coming from the hood. When he opened the hood the cruise control switch was on fire. We still have it disconnected because we're afraid it will catch the car on fire.
Consumer parked vehicle at 9:00 am, and at around 4:00 pm fire started in the engine compartment on driver's side. Fire spread to house. Air conditioner compressor was replaced nearly six months before fire. Fuse went out on a blinker. Never had problems with cruise control. Rarely used cruise control. Made a long trip within 3 weeks before fire and cruise were working.
Water in the fuse box causing many shorts. There is a leak in the wheel well. No water is any where else in the SUV. Shorts include, radio off and on, flashing lights on the dash, all lights off on dash, SUV starter relay shorted and tried to start the ignition without any keys or anyone in the SUV. Because it is considered water damage my extended warranty will not cover it. Ford motor company has been contacted by myself and they have apparently heard of this complaint and will not assume responsibility at this time.
Turn signal/wiper control stem shorting out with electrical arc sounds as long as stem is in l/r position. Same item occurred in similar vehicle owned by same: 1997 Ford Expedition, VIN#1fmeu17l3vla98362. Suspect this is a defective assembly which may cause accidents due to lack of ability to indicate turning intent, especially when turning left or changing lanes.
Reported engine losing power to dealership while vehicle was under warranty on 2 prior occasions before vehicle shut down totally while in driving mode. Dealer's service department could not find a problem on those prior visits. With the complete power failure, the dealer's service department found that a fire had occurred in the electrical junction box, burning several wires that had to be replaced. Dealer insisted that this total shutdown had nothing to do with previous lost of power that I reported to them. I was fortunate not to be in a lot of traffic when my failure occurred, but the next person may not be so lucky.
