I have the same vehicle and had the exact same problem. It failed several times over a period of 1 1/2 years and would always restart until one day it just died. It turned out to be a faulty relay in the security system. Once the relay was replaced I never had the problem again.

2003 Ford Expedition start problems?

In this case, the starter was the problem after 55K miles. While driving on freeway, the instrument cluster of lights flashed momentarily and then the car went dead. After coasting to the side of road, the electrical system worked fine, but the car wouldn't start. Not sure why a bad starter caused the car to go dead while driving. After inspecting and cleaning all electrical connections from the battery to the starter, and checking all related fuses and relays, I came to the conclusion that the starter motor must have gone bad. I replaced the starter motor and the car started right up. See "How to replace the starter motor."
