They can also check to see if your charging system is working which may be the case here as low voltage causes all kinds of problems for computer systems. She managed to pull over to the shoulder and was able to restart the car after 10min. Following the schematic, we inspected the wiring, which showed the problem the main harness for the system was cut clear through Photos 6 and 7. One alternative would be to spend the money to have it towed to a different Ford dealer, to see if the diagnosis is the same. A sudden engine stall in the middle of the road is inacceptable with two small kids and a serious safety issue. After that there is a complaint with the dealer claiming for a vehicle replacement.
The vehicle would not restart and was towed to an authorized mechanic who stated that the computer burned itself out and should be replaced. Left car where parked and called a tow truck to take car to dealer in the morning. I couldn't pull over, it won't restart even after many attempts. If you didn't get the Alarm built into the vehicle but had it installed after you bought it remove the fuse from the Alarm power line to disable the kill switch. Brake pedal goes nearly to the floor and no braking assistance is given. Power assist for braking failed.
It occurs every time the outside temperature drops to around 40 degrees F or lower. I lose acceleration and all I can do is break and pull off the side of the road. But it does cause delays in busy intersections and hesitation on the driver to pull in to traffic. On-board computers set the gearing to the optimum setting for fuel efficiency, resulting in a 30 percent increase in efficiency over a conventional transmission, according to Ford engineers. That's the first step if any car's been sitting for several months.
The dealer was notified of the failures and stated that the vehicle needed to be diagnosed. For the next 35 miles until I got to my destination this same thing occurred 3 more times on dark, rural roads. Start - stop button is located in drivers right knee area and is two inches from similar looking climate control button. This resulted in loss of power steering and power brakes. Assuming the 12-Volt battery is fine, then the dealership is saying she has a problem with her high-voltage battery the one specific to the hybrid system. The battery is new and the cables are clean. All put me in a very dangerous situation.
Not to mention having to worry; about having money for repair after repair. The approximate failure mileage was 111,000. The car would not restart. The failure mileage was 110,000. Luckily, my husband was traveling the same route in another car, traffic was light, and there were available shoulders on the road for an immediate pull-over.
The approximate failure mileage was 116,000. When you turn the key you get a click no turn over at all. The service department stated that no error was registered on the computer and that the car would have to be returned. If all are good check the Alarm circuit ignition kill switch. After reserch on line I saw I was not the only person with this same issue.
However, the recall indicates 2. Ford documented fix is to try bleeding the brake system and see if that works. I have had nothing but problems with this vehicle. The manufacturer was not notified. Tried several times to restart and it would not.
The contact heard an abnormal noise when the brake pedal was depressed. This was a dangerous and frightening situation. All dash lights and headlights, radio, windows, etc. I was left stranded when the car failed to start and had to have it towed. The failure mileage was 90,000.
No gas, but electronics remained on while merging onto a crowded highway at 50 mph. The brake travel sensor is the problem and from what I've read, most people with this car have this same problem. The dealer replaced the 12 v battery under warranty and said my problems should be fixed but they would check for fault codes. It was clear that we would have to work our way with a schematic, which would be our roadmap to possibly finding the fault. I have found where there is a recall for the same year built and type car for this issue.
