The roll restrictor was torn. If not aware of issue and have foot on brake would hit what ever in the way of car. I've driven it a total of about 25 miles and started it a total of 10 times. The brakes need to be held down firmly otherwise the car has a chance to smash into anything that may be in front or behind you when shifting into drive or reverse. Took back to 2nd mechanic, when they shared with me that it was likely the pcm and the dealership would need to fix. Over the last six months, I have had repeated engine fail safe modes, but have always reset when I turn off the car and wait a few minutes.
As a result, the contact crashed into another vehicle. I had my car fixed at a Ford dealer and then contacted Ford motor about the problem and they don't seem to take the issue seriously. Have come close to hitting pedestrians and stopped vehicles at stop signs and traffic lights. I'm not telling you to rush out and buy a battery---if the parts store test reveals yours is bad, or the charging system needs attention like getting a new battery or alternator. No check engine light so far.
The car has shut off twice while driving with the wrench light appearing on the instrument cluster. This condition seems to be getting worse and Ford doesn't seem to be doing anything about it. I know that Ford extended the warranty period in 2006, but I thought that was for the 2007 model year? Realized early-on that the transmission was not smooth, but willing to settle for less than perfection since it was a 2005 vehicle. The failure mileage was 126,489. Most I've read have been that people have found a hose that has either been clogged or disconnected. I have tried to reset the computer as you recommended.
Ford needs to recall this part. The car has been well maintained and unless my wife has been sneaking cheap gas behind my back only high quality fuel has been used in it. Alternator checked at battery with motor running- 12. Take it to a certified, trusted Ford dealer tech for proper diagnosis. That it is the full procedure how to.
Hopefully the article of Reset Oil Life Light on 2005-2007 Ford Five Hundred 500 can solve your problem. Then twist out the correct but connector. Was able to restart, engine light has remained on since yesterday's incident. Guessing over and over gets you nowhere! Today I decided to do a dry run on the repair and take a look at what the engine looks like with the transaxle roll restrictor brace removed I can't get the parts till later this week. The car still accelerates on its own when I pull into parking spaces or leaving parking spaces.
It should be a recall major safety violation. The first time this happened I only had the break pedal slightly depressed - car jumped forward - I fully depressed brake pedal to stop. It's going to be tomorrow. It's mainly when it is on, but still completely random. It will suddenly rev up when in either drive or reverse without my foot on the gas pedal and try to move in an uncontrolled manner. When I turned the air conditioning off the car stopped shutting off.
Took back, replaced sensor for free nice! The contact merged to the shoulder of the road, powered off, then restarted the vehicle. It does not do this every time that the car goes to idle in drive or reverse for example, if I am in traffic at a stoplight but it will do this at least once every time I drive. It is making a very strange thumping noise in idle in both park and reverse as well. The fact that I have not hit anyone yet is proof that this is not a pedal misapplication error, but my concern is that an inexperienced driver or someone who is unaware of this defect will be surprised by it and kill or injure themselves or someone else. In late 2012 or early 2013, I received 'recall' notice that pcm I.
The car was unable to lurch forward only because I've had my foot on the break due to my shifting of gears from park or neutral to drive. . I have to make sure I have my foot firmly on the brake so it doesn't cause a serious accident. The fact that I have not hit anyone yet is proof that this is not a pedal misapplication error, but my concern is that an inexperienced driver or someone who is unaware of this defect will be surprised by it and kill or injure themselves or someone else. The vehicle would only move in reverse.
