08 Expedition Weird Electrical Problems

Having intermittent electrical issues while on the road. A Ford shop looked at these yesterday for several hours but could not re-create, so sent me on my way. But today, they're more persistent.

With car stopped, we opened LR door, then these things happened
-- Left running board deployed, then immediate retracted.
-- Could not lock doors from switches on either front door or from remote.
-- Hazard lights began to flash and we could not turn them off.
-- Got “right door ajar” message, door had been opened, but at that time it was fully closed.
-- Couldn’t release shift lever from Park position.
-- Map lights started flashing; hazard lights are still flashing.
--Rear lift gate would not open from dash button or with remote.
--After unloading wheelchair, the switch at left rear interior would not operate to close liftgate.
-- Tinkered around, and did something so hazard lights would turn off to save battery overnight. Wish I could remember what it was.

Any suggestions where one might start looking? Or if there's something I could disable temporarily? The car runs fine once I can get it in gear, but I'm wary of turning it off until I reach my destination.

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

Re: 08 Expedition Weird Electrical Problems

It almost sounds like something is going wrong in the security portion of the truck.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
