Ford Motor Complaint - 2000 Expedition trying to start itself!
My son woke me up because he heard our car trying to start and when he looked out the window he saw the lights were on. He thought someone was trying to steal our expedition. I hit the unlock button in the house and saw that no one was in the car. I had to call the police because the ignition was grinding so much and making so much noise I thought the car was going to explode. My husband was on his way home from work when I called him. He could hear the noise. He told me to go out and start the car with the key. When I turned the key the engine did start but at the same time it was grinding and gunning so loud, I ran out of the car because I thought it was going to blow up. When the police arrived the battery died and the car quit making the noise but the lights wouldn't go out. So the police officer pulled out a few fuses but the lights still wouldn't go out. Then my husband arrived and he had to disconnect the battery for the lights to go out. Since then we charged the battery but to no avail the car won't start. The lights will come on and it beeps when the keys are in the ignition. So I think my starter blew up. Has anyone else had this freakish experience and how did you handle it? Did Ford take
