    FWIW, got out to my wife tonight and our truck.... Got the damn thing jumped and running we thought it was good to go and she turned the heater on and boom it died out.. Never could get the battery to take a jump after that so we left it parked at the local mall tonight. Told security so they knew it was there plus there's a dozen or two snow plows running around so I'm not worried about it being left there. Come back tomorrow and throw a new battery in it and bring her home...

    Freakin vehicles!
    Alternator? Or is the battery old enough to be dead?

    I'll figure that part out tomorrow... I'm guessing battery (2nd battery since new) right now since its a few years old and it takes a beating with the remote starter and alarm system on it. Given the mileage about 135,000 on it the alternator could be a player too so first thing is to get a fresh battery in it regardless and then when I get home I can get my tester on it and check the volts coming out of the alternator.

    Its a 2005 Ford Expedition 4X4.. Been a great vehicle with a few little exceptions that the extended warranty package (thank god!) took care of for us...

    It had a tranny seal, front diff seals and needed the top half of the engine cracked open two years ago.. Premature breakdown of some valve guide seals and it was letting oil bypass and caused some crazy crap to go on.. In the end Ford covered us with a full rebuild on the tranny because they had it cracked open to replace the seals then they rebuilt the entire upper half of the engine on that last deal which was a unknown premature major seal failure.

    The diff seals going is a common deal with 4X4's.. Seems like regardless of what you do I've always seen 4X4's showing a little leakage after some time....

    Telling ya if you ever have considered buying into one of those extended full coverage warranties its well worth it when something like we had comes up.. We paid $50 deductable on those repairs and the engine/tranny work was well over $10,000 in parts and labor charges that the warranty covered

    I know you maybe saying WTF! But when you have $40 grand tied up into the family vehicle to haul the kids and crap around its not like you can just go dump it and get another vehicle.. Until recently the only vehicle's that hauled 7 people legally (seat belts, etc...) was an Expedition and Suburban otherwise it was full size van... Mini vans cut out at 6 people on just about any American models.. I will never own a foreign make so I wouldn't know if they have vehicles that handle 7+ people. I wanted a Suburban but that was almost another $10 grand for the same options as we got with the Expedition...

    My mom's 2001 Windstar has 7 seats with belts. Is the 6 person limit a newer thing?

    Yeah there was the Windstar I do remember that.. We considered it but I can't remember what the reason was we passed on it... I think they discontinued it in 04 or 05? We purchased when they had all those crazy low interest rates during the good days before the bottom fell out on everything housing/cars, etc...

    Think the 6 person thing was just the family trends... Big families weren't popular in the late 90's into the 00's. so they reflected that in the size of the vehicles and what they would handle... Now big families are making a comeback so more vehicles are supporting 7 passengers....
