ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

12/9/2014 - EASTON, PA
THE VEHICLE HAD BEEN TURNED IN TO BROWN DAUB FORD IN NAZARETH, PA WHERE IT WAS REPORTED TO HAVE DIED TWICE ON THE ROAD. THEY THEN REPORTED IT DIED ON THEM TWICE ALSO. THEY REPLACED THE ENGINE FUEL PUMP AS THIS IS THE ECOBOOST THERE ARE TWO PUMPS (ONE AT FUELTANK ONE AT ENGINE) AND RETURNED THE CAR. IT DROVE FOR 30 MINUTES AND DIED AGAIN IN AN INTERSECTION WHERE IT ALMOST CAUSED A SERIOUS ACCIDENT. THE DEALERSHIP WROTE UP THE COMPLAINT AS CAR WANTS TO STALL WHICH IS NOT WHAT WAS SAID. THEY WERE TOLD IT DIED AND WAS DANGEROUS, THEY RETURNED IT WITH THE SAME MILEAGE AS THEY TOOK IT IN SO IT WAS NOT TEST DRIVEN. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS PROBLEM AND WILL CAUSE A DEATH. THE NONE TURBO ENGINE HAS A RECALL FOR WIREHARNESS SPLICES NOT DONE PROPERLY AND THAT IS WHAT THIS SOUNDS LIKE. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS.

IT DIED ON THEM TWICE. THEY NOW BELIEVE IT COULD BE A DROPOFF IN PRESSURE IN THE FUEL SYSTEM WHICH MAKES NO SENSE. THE CAT JUSTS STOPS RUNNING.
