      Hi guys. I'm posting this, but figured out the problem. Hopefully this will help someone else out. I have a 2002 XLT & Just replaced the battery on Tuesday. My daughter drove the truck all week with no trouble & then this morning (Sunday) it wouldn't start. It wouldn't take a jump from my Ford edge & with no keys in the ignition, I could hear a "clicking" from the fuse box. My "theft" light was dimly flashing, but no other dash light would come on when the key was turned. I opened the hood & the fuse box under the hood & put my finger on a couple of the relay switches. I could feel the one clicking & per the manual, it was the "police ivd relay". (Number 51). I went to the local Auto Zone & they didn't carry the part. I went to a local junk yard & found a 2000 Explorer & the relays were the same number. I bought 2, came home & swapped it out and the clicking stopped immediately. I then connected the jumper cables & she fired up after only being connected 10 seconds. Done! Hope this helps out someone else.:exp:
