ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

12/16/2014 - OLD HICKORY, TN
THERE WAS A MISFIRE AND NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. THIS HAPPENED 5 TIMES BEFORE THE COMPUTER SHOWED THERE WAS AN ISSUE. ON THE THIRD TIME I HAD FORD INSTALL THE DEFLECTOR TO KEEP WATER AWAY FROM THE TURBO CHARGERS. THE LAST TIME IT HAPPENED THE COMPUTER FINALLY SHOWED A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO AUTO ZONE TO HAVE THEM DIAGNOSE IT. THE COMPUTER WAS SHOWING MISFIRES IN 3 CYLINDERS. WHEN I GOT THE VEHICLE TO FORD IT WAS ONLY SHOWING ONE CYLINDER HAVING HAD A MISFIRE. BASED ON THIS, AND THE FACT THAT THE COMPUTER DIDN'T REGISTER THE PREVIOUS MISFIRES. I FEEL THERE IS A DEFECT WITH THE COMPUTER IN MY VEHICLE. FORD REFUSES TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE. I KNOW THERE WAS AN INVESTIGATION ON THIS, BUT THE MISFIRES HAVE HAPPENED WHEN IT WAS NOT RAINING OR HUMID, IN FACT THE FIRST MISFIRE HAPPENED ON A DRY DAY. ALSO, I HAVE HAD THE REPAIRS MADE BASED ON MOISTURE CAUSING THE ISSUE AND STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. PLEASE ADVISE

I WAS WITH MY FAMILY ON THE WAY TO CHURCH. I WAS MAKING A RIGHT TURN OUT OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD ONTO THE HIGHWAY WHEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN THERE WAS A COMPLETE LOSS IN POWER AND WAS UNABLE TO RESUME ACCELERATION. THE HIGHWAY ALSO HAS A MODERATE INCLINE IN SLOPE WHICH CAUSED THE VEHICLE TO SLOW DRAMATICALLY. WE WERE ALMOST REAR-ENDED FROM THE CAR HEADING IN THE SAME DIRECTION WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY A SUBSTANTIAL DISTANCE AWAY. LUCKILY THE CAR THAT WAS APPROACHING FROM BEHIND WAS ABLE TO SLOW DOWN FAST ENOUGH CONSIDERING WE HAD A 1 YEAR AND 4 YEAR OLD SON IN THE BACK SEAT. I CALLED THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP AND THE EARLIEST APPOINTMENT THEY COULD OFFER TO CHECK THE PROBLEM WAS ON WEDNESDAY 10/10/2014. THIS IS OVER 3 DAYS AFTER THE INCIDENT OCCURRED. THE TRUCK ONLY HAS 40,000 MILES ON IT SO I BEGAN RESEARCHING THIS ISSUE. I DISCOVERED THAT THERE ARE MORE THAN A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF COMPLAINTS AND IT SEEMS FORD IS AWARE OF THE ISSUE AND IS EVEN ATTEMPTING TO MODIFY THE AIR INDUCTION SYSTEM AND RE FLASH THE PCM. WITH ISSUES LIKE THE MILLIONS OF VEHICLES BEING RECALLED FOR AIRBAGS THAT HAVE LED TO SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH, FAR BEYOND THE MANUFACTURE ORIGINALLY BECOMING AWARE OF THE ISSUES. HOW LONG IS THE ISSUE REGARDING THE 2011-2013 FORD F150 ECOBOOST GOING TO REMAIN SHOVED UNDER THE RUG? HOW MANY LIVES HAVE TO BE LOST BEFORE FORD TAKES ACCOUNTABILITY FOR PUTTING THE PUBLIC AT RISK. IN THEIR REPORT TO THIS SPECIFIC ISSUE (ON THE NHTSA WEBSITE), IT IS MORE THAN OBVIOUS THEY HAVE IDENTIFIED A DEFECT IN THE 2012 FORD F150 AND THE ECOBOOST ENGINES WITHIN THE TRUCKS. CAN YOU HELP ME UNDERSTAND HOW AND WHY THEY ARE NOT BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR RISKING THE LIVES OF MANY PEOPLE. ALSO, WHY IS THE NHTSA ALLOWING FORD TO SHRUG THIS OFF AND CLOSE THIS INVESTIGATION? THERE IS A CLEAR DEFECT PRESENT THAT HAS THE POTENTIAL OF LEADING TO LOSS OF LIFE. IS THIS NOT PURE NEGLIGENCE?

REMOTE STARTED TRUCK WHICH ACTIVATED THE REAR DEFROST, BACKING OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY I HEARD A POP AND MY DAUGHTER CRYING. I ASKED HER WHAT HAD HAPPENED AND SHE STATED SHE DID KNOW (AS WELL AS A 2.5 YEAR OLD CAN) AND THEN I NOTICED THE WINDOW BEHIND HER HEAD WAS SHATTERED, BUT INTACT. THIS IS THE DRIVERS SIDE WINDOW ON THE BACK GLASS.

SERVICE BRAKES

12/1/2014 - STEVENSVILLE, MD
"CHECK BRAKE SYSTEM" WARNING APPEARED ON DASH DISPLAY. NO PROBLEM FOUND WITH BRAKES. TURNING OFF THE IGNITION FOR A TIME SEEMS TO RETURN THINGS TO NORMAL UNTIL THE NEXT EPISODE WHICH HAS HAPPENED MANY TIMES . TWO DEALERSHIPS HAVE NOT FOUND THE PROBLEM. OUTSIDE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE SEEMS TO PLAY A PART SINCE NO PROBLEM IN WINTER. THIS IS NOT AN ISOLATED ISSUE SINCE A SEARCH OF THE INTERNET CONFIRMS OTHER OWNERS HAVE THE PROBLEM. I HAVE BECOME INCLINED TO IGNORE THE WARNING BUT WORRY THAT THERE MAY BE ONE TIME WHEN THERE IS A TRUE PROBLEM THAT IF IGNORED MAY JEOPARDIZE THE SAFETY OF MY VEHICLE AND PASSENGERS.
