If there's a ford dealer in your area go to the parts dept and ask for a battery for your remote and tell him what your excursion is doing, these guys sell parts all day and they know what the most common problems are, because they supply parts for all the repairs at the dealership. Start with a fully charged battery because if its weak you can't troubleshoot the problem.
I had to have the power actuators replaced in my 2000 excursion. My friend at the ford dealer told me it is a common problem. Apparently the bracket that holds them in place is faulty and causes the linkage to bind. When the dealership repairs they replace the bracket and actuator. Cost me $650 and that didn't include the rear tailgate.
