Your 04 Expedition is not equipped with the electronic throttle control as
featured on the F series. It does ahve the older cruise control servo type
system. While your MY isn't covered under safety recall 05S28, the recall
has been expanded several times to include more model years....
I would start by inspecting F2.5..... this is fuse #5 in the underdash fuse
panel and should be a 7.5 amp fuse. If this fuse is blown, do not replace it
until the reason has been discovered... especially, do NOT overfuse the
circuit. Whehther the fuse is blown or not, proceed to the brake master
At the front of the master cylinder, you will find the cruise control
de-activation switch. Disconnect the wiring and inspect the switch for
leakage and the wiring for any signs of overheating.... make any necessary
FWIW, I have performed this recall on many, many vehicles and haven't seen
any leaking switches THUS FAR.....
Remember.... your car is not currently covered under this FSA so your dealer
will be unable or unauthorized to perfrom the necessary actions at this time
and expect Ford to pay for it.... I do expect that there is a very good
chance that FSA coverage may be expanded to cover your unit in the future.
If you opt to purchase the recall harness and install it, the harness isn't
expensive and, if you save the receipt and the FSA is expanded to cover your
car, you should be able to be re-imbursed for the cost of the harness....
