FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

10/28/2015 - INDEPENDENCE, MN
RAPID UNCONTROLLED ACCELERATION FOLLOWED BY SUDDEN LOSS OF POWER. SPEED IS REDUCED TO UNDER 10 MPH, THE WRENCH LIGHT TURNS ON WHEN THIS OCCURS. POWER IS RESTORED AFTER TURNING THE VEHICLE OFF AND BACK ON. THIS PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED TWICE IN THE LAST WEEK, IN RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC, AND NEARLY RESULTED SERIOUS ACCIDENTS INVOLVING BOTH OUR VEHICLE AND VEHICLES BEHIND US TRYING TO AVOID OUR ALMOST STALLED VEHICLE. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS DEFECT! THE CAR BEHIND US SWERVED IN FRONT OF A SEMI TRUCK WHICH NEARLY CAUSED A CHAIN REACTION CRASH IN 70 MPH TRAFFIC. THE SECOND VEHICLE, BEHIND THE ONE THAT CUT OFF THE SEMI, NEARLY REAR ENDED US AS WE LIMPED ALONG AT UNDER 10 MPH. IT WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO GET THE VEHICLE TO THE SHOULDER FROM THE CENTER LANE IN BOTH INSTANCES. WE PURCHASED THE VEHICLE USED ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO AND HAVE NOT RECEIVED A SAFETY NOTICE CONCERNING THIS DEFECT.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

10/27/2015 - HILLIARD, OH
THE CONNECTOR TO THE AIR CONTROL RELAY OVERHEATS. WOULD SMELL AN ELECTRICAL BURNING SCENT. CHECKED ONLINE FOUND PICTURES OF MELTED WIRING UNDER DASH. TOOK PICTURES OF THAT AREA UNDER DASH AND FOUND THE SAME THING. THE CONNECTOR TO THE AIR CONTROL RELAY IS MELTED. THE BLOWER FAN HAS QUIT WORKING. FORD DEALERSHIPS WANT 500.00 PLUS TO FIX THIS. I WOULD CALL THIS A SAFETY DEFECT. IT ONLY SEEMS TO HAPPEN TO CARS EQUIPPED WITH THE DUEL CONTROL AUTO CLIMATE. THIS INCIDENT DID NOT CAUSE A FUSE TO TRIP AND COULD LEAD TO A FIRE IN THE DASH. IT NOT UNCOMMON BECAUSE IT WAS QUICKLY AND EASILY FOUND ON YOUTUBE. FORD WAS AWARE OF THE PROBLEM, BUT DENIED IS WAS ANYTHING OTHER THAN A MAINTENANCE ISSUE.
