Hi everyone I have a 97 Eddie Bauer Expedition with the 4.6, I just replaced the heater core last week ( removed the dash and all) when I put it back together the truck started fine. I let it sit a few days and went out to use it on Sunday and the battery was dead, not sure what drained it, but I put the charger on it for 20 minutes and went to start it, and it cranked over but wouldn't start. I then noticed the "theft" light blinking like crazy and it won't start. I disconnected the battery for 1/2 hour, like I seen on some posts, but that did not work. I do have a friend that has the OBD scanner from snap on, and I have the owners manuals along with the 2 large factory manuals from Ford on this truck, is there anything we could do to get this thing going without going to the dealer? Right now I am checking things without the scanner because I am off today and he is at work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
