Not absolutely certain on your model, but newer fords have a solid state Light Control Module (LCM) that is sensative. You may have damaged yours.

you drain your battery when you leave your lights on

I think you might be confusing Tylenol with a similar item called an alkaline battery. To the best of my knowledge, There are no recharging properties in Tylenol

If parking lights and dash lights are not working and fuse blows out, there might be a problem with battery corrosion. Check the components specific to the circuits of the affected lights. It might be loose.

if the battery is in good condition and the lights are standard then 3 hours might be enough so it will not be able to restart itself but this may vary according to battery size condition and lights wattage.

The oil and battery lights might be showing on your shogun when driving due to an electrical problem. A mechanic can properly diagnose the problem.

The battery ,which gives power to the truck, looses its power because the lights use power from the battery to work. It's just like a batery for a toy.

The engine is clicking with all of the interior lights on? Dead battery... and for future reference... if there is no clicking= really dead battery and it might not recharge. In that case check the alternator, if the alternator is still good, just buy a new battery. If the battery continues to fail to recharge get a new alternator.

The alternator generates electricity, so it's not part of the starting system, which uses the stored electricity in the battery. If the lights work, the battery must be pretty well ok. The starter might be stuck, or it might have failed.

the plug behind the battery might be unplugged or that same plug is disconnected from the fuse box

Because you left the lights on all night. This drains the battery. Connect a battery charger and wait about 3 hours. Then the car might start. If it does not start buy a new battery or a new car whichever you prefer.battery juice is gone.

Charge your battery!It also sounds like you might have an alternator problem.

User Avatar

if that's the case then you battery might be dead take it down or get if you have a battery charger use that to get it going it usually takes about 18-24 hours to charge up a car battery. Type your answer here... If your car stalled when you turned on the lights, it could be that a fuse was blown.

check your fusible link, its connected to your positive battery cable,check for burnt marks or it might be swollen.

Good idea to check the battery. Might need to be charged, or changed.

If your 1999 Ford Expedition has turn signals that do not work but hazard lights that do work, it is likely that you have a fuse that is blown. You might also have a wiring issue including exposed wiring.

the battery might be running down have it checked or check the hood yourself

User Avatar

If you have a big sound system in your truck then it could be a good idea to add a second battery, also if you have a winch or some kind of after market lights then you might want to add another battery so you don't stress the single battery.

User Avatar

Check the battery connections. Clean terminals and battery cables. If still no go, check the battery. Might have to replace. Any parts store should be able to do a battery check.

User Avatar

I would first consider that the car stalled BEFORE the lights came on. You might have a bad ignition switch or loose connection at the battery.

If the car/truck is running, it will not make a difference. However, if there was an electrical short on one of the wires that leads back to the brake lights, it might slowly draw power while the engine is off.
