Due to the complexity’s of today’s vehicles, the vast majority of owners or DIYer’s do not possess the proper diagnostic equipment nor the knowledge and training that’s required to effectively and successfully perform their own automobile troubleshooting / repair.

Therefore it is highly recommended to seek professional *hands-on* assistance with this issue as that tends to be the most cost effective and reliable solution..

Unfortunately It is impossible for us here ‘online’ to determine what the actual failure is.. We could post a ‘list’ of the possibilities - however that isn’t going to help due to the fact the same diagnostic equipment and troubleshooting knowledge is still going to be required before a logical repair strategy can be obtained.

Good luck!

Not at all sure what a "flash code" for anything other than an Air Bag light could possibly be on a 1999 Expedition. Nothing else provides a "flash code".

Jumping / swapping batteries all smells of a likely reverse connection situation that happened on accident or some kind of electrical arcing that likely damaged circuit protection or worse. You'll need professional help like Pushrod suggested.
