VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

1/25/2016 - DEARBORN, MI
DRIVING ON HIGHWAY AT 70MPH, I SAW MY SPEEDOMETER MOMENTARILY DROP TO 40MPH. IT DID IT AGAIN ABOUT 15 SECONDS LATER, AND DOWNSHIFTED TO ABOUT 4TH GEAR MOMENTARILY. ABOUT A MINUTE LATER, STILL AT 70MPH THE SPEEDOMETER DROPPED, AND THE TRANSMISSION DOWNSHIFTED TO 1ST GEAR! MY REAR WHEELS LOCKED UP, AND I LOST CONTROL, AND FISHTAILED FOR A FEW SECONDS. LUCKILY I HAD TAKEN A HALF DAY VACATION AND WAS NOT IN RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC. STILL OTHER CARS HAD TO SWERVE TO KEEP FROM BEING HIT. THE DEARLERSHIP WAS ABLE TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM, AND REPLACED A MOULDED PLASTIC MODULE MADE BY CONTINENTAL THAT I THINK CONTAINED THE TRANSMISSION SPEED SENSOR. SO IT APPEARS THAT WHEN THE TRANSMISSION SPEED SENSOR SIGNAL IS LOST, THE FAILURE MODE IS TO DOWNSHIFT TO 1ST GEAR NO MATTER THE SPEED OF THE VEHICLE.

WHEN THE "SERVICE ADVANCE TRACK" LIGHT INDICATOR LIGHTS UP, WHEN YOU ACTUATE THE TURN SIGNAL LEVER, THE TURN SIGNALS WILL ONLY FLASH ONCE, AND THEN THEY STOP FLASHING. THIS CAN HAPPEN WHEN THE VEHICLE IS STATIONARY OR MOVING AT ANY TIME.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

1/15/2016 - ONEIDA, NY

STEERING

1/11/2016 - HUMBLE, TX
WHILE TURNING THE POWER STEERING WENT OUT. I WAS NOT GOING FAST BUT IT STRAIGHTENED OUT THE TRUCK AND LUCKILY THERE WAS NO ONE IN THE LEFT LANE. THE POWER STEERING ASSIST AS WELL AS THE SERVICE ADVANCETRAC WARNING MESSAGES CAME ON. I WAS ABLE TO GET THE VEHICLE HOME BUT DEFINITELY DANGEROUS TO DRIVE. THE TRUCK IS AT THE DEALER AND HOPEFULLY BEING FIXED. THIS IS A SCARY FAILURE AND SHOULD BE ADDRESSED. A FEW DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES AND THIS COULD HAVE HURT SOMEONE. SUDDEN LOSS OF POWER STEERING IN A TURN SHOULD NOT BE SOMETHING A VEHICLE WITH 37,400 MILES ON IT SHOULD HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT.
