Hi Lou. Thanks for the question tonight. If the wire was attempted to be spliced while the battery was connected, it may have shorted the fuel pump or other electrical components on your Ford Expedition. Anytime electrical work is completed, if if minor - power should be disconnected. It is also possible that this is not related to your trailer brakes. I would check your fuel pump relay to see if this is damaged for starters. If this checks out, and you’re able to crank the starter, then it’s likely you have a damaged fuel pump that would require replacement under most circumstances. If you need some assistance trying to correctly diagnose the root issue, please feel free to set up an onsite inspection.
