The Vehicle Was Purchased About 4 Months Ago With 3,000 Miles. Have Already Filed A Complaint With Nhtsa Regarding A Problem With Wiring Harness Which Caused Vehicle To Lose Power In Traffic As Well As Change Gears. ford Looked At The Problem And Said Computer Didn’t Record. Upon Receiving Car Back (5th Time For Same electrical Problem) The Car Began Exhibiting The Same Problem. On 8/5/17, While In Garage The Alarm Unexpectedly Starting Going On And Off, Doors Locking And Unlocking. See Below For Details. As Of 8/17/17 ford Has Not Been Able/willing To Escalate It To Senior Engineering To Explain Why The Events Are Not Recorded In The Computer. Please Note, We Have Videos Of The Vehicle In Motion And Being Loaded On Tow Truck While Alarms Etc Are Acting Up. We Believe This To Be A Very Serious Safety Flaw. See Below For Details Sent To ford On 8/8/2017. 1. Called ford Roadside – 8/8/17 10:00pm (approx) 2. The Car Kept Turning On And Off. 3. Moved Car To Front So Tow Truck Could Get It 4. While I Was Driving From Back Of House To Front, It Put Itself Into Park. And Then Back Into Drive. You Could Feel The Electronic Dial Shifter Move Mechanically 5. Got To Front Of House. Alarm Continued To Trip. Left Car On In Accessory Mode To Keep Alarm From Going Off And Left In Park. After 10 Steps Away From Car (9:55pm) It Put Itself Into Drive And Drove Into The Back Of My Truck. No Damage That I Can See. But Have Photos. 6. Decided To Move Back To Garage As To Not Be A Risk To Neighbors. The Car Kept Locking And Unlocking Doors. 7. It’s Now In Garage. It Keeps Locking, Unlocking And Power Cycling…and Short Alarm Sounds 8. When Tow Truck Arrived, Alarm And Other electrical Issues Persisted While Being Loaded And While The Tow Truck Drove Away Again, We Have A Couple Of Videos, As Well As 3 Eye Witnesses To Confirm This Behavior.

Vehicle was involved in a crash. Mileage was 3000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):3FA6P0SU3HR. Ford Fusion Energi 2017 problem was reported in EVANSTON, IL. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 2 mph.

While Driving My Car On The Freeway The Computer Screen Shuts Off And Turns Back On, This Has Happened Several Times, Took The Dealership And The Now Service Manager Said Maybe It Needs A Update, Which According To ford It Does Not. While Parked Turned Off, You Can Hear electrical Componets Making Noises. I Only Have A Video Of It Happening While Driving That I Cant Upload. Also, The Computer Tried To Eject A Cd But I Have Never Used The Cd Player. Also There Is The Transmission What When Putting In Drive Or Reverse Kicks Really Hard. There Was A Couple Times The Car Couldnt Changer Geers Like The Rpm Were Reving Up But Not Changing Geers

My Car, With 2k Miles, Would Not Start (push Button Start, This Is The Plug-in Hybrid “energi” Model). After Being Towed To A Dealer, They Had To Tear The Car Apart To Find A Bad Wiring Harness As Part Of The Hybrid System. This Part Was Unavailable, And I Am Having To Wait Over 5 Days To Have The Car Repaired. In Addition, The Manufacturer Has Not Provided Any Alternate Transportation And Instead Tried To Get Me To Buy An Extended Warranty. Horrible Customer Support From ford. This Is A Safety Fix, And The Car Itself Just Wouldn’t Run. To Not Take Care Of The Customer Or Have The Ability To Quickly Get A Part Is Unacceptable. Wiring Harnesses Should Not Fail In 5 Weeks And 2k Miles. The Car Drove One Mile, Then Would Not Restart. It Only Complained To “get Off The Road Soon”. A Failure Of What Should Be A Very Basic Part At 2k Miles Is Concerning, Not To Mention The Inability Of ford To Repair It In Quick Fashion. This Does Make Me Wonder If The Problem Is More Widespread And So Parts Are Hard To Come By.

Issue 1: Fmvss Critical Safety Issue. Intermittent Total Failure Of Climate Control System, Including Failure Of Defogger Causing Obstructed Visibility In Cold Climates (vehicle Is Based In Metropolitan Detroit). The Failure Is Both electrical And Mechanical. Neither The Touch Screen Nor The Physical Console Buttons Respond To Commands. After Second Intermittent Failure, The Vehicle Was Parked Overnight In An Attached Home Garage. After Ignition, Defogger Functioned, But No Other Climate Functions Worked. Defogger Emitted A Burning Smell Akin To A Campfire. Forced To Drive With Such Conditions To Work To Maintain Visibility. Issue 2: Possible Fmvss Safety Issue. Intermittent Failure Of The Audio System, Including Snyc Commands. Touchscreen (both On The Home Screen And On The Toolbar At The Bottom Of The Screen) And Physical Buttons Do Not Respond When Audio Buttons Are Pressed. When This Happens, Sync Does Not Respond. Although Bluetooth Is Active, Occupants Cannot Hear The Dialed Party, And The Dialed Party Cannot Hear The Occupants. Since Sync Is Tied Into 911 System For Crashes, This Will Prevent Occupants From Engaging With 911 Operators Hands-free In An Accident. If Occupants Cannot Reach/manipulate Phone In A Crash, They May Be Unable To Call For Help. Issue 3: Intermittent Rear Camera Failure. After Rainfall And Frost Events, The Rear Camera Does Not Engage When The Vehicle Is Placed In Reverse Gear. The Screen Is Black, Except For An Outline Of The Vehicle. The Radar Sensors Remain Active And Beeps If The Vehicle Is Close To Backing Into An Object. After A Period Of Dryness, The Camera Re-engages. I Assume There Is A Moisture Intrusion Problem, But Am Unable To Identify The Entry Point. Online Searches Suggest That Moisture May Be Intruding Through The Factory-installed, Roof-mounted Antenna.

Mileage was 3000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):3F6P0HD0HR1. Ford Fusion 2017 problem was reported in BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 45 mph.

Dead Battery Issue. Brand New Car Sitting For 6 Days Has Battery Go Below “minimum Start” And When Start Button Is Pressed, Entire Car Goes Dead. Issue Is Not Isolated To Only My Car. Many Owners Have Experienced This Problem Only To Be Told That It’s “not A Problem”. The fordfusion Sport Forum Has Tons Of People Complaining (http://www.fusionsportforums.com/forum/257-fusion-v6-sport-audio-electronics-lighting/3770-dead-battery.html). When I Contacted ford Corporate Customer Service, I Was Told That There Are No “recalls Nor Technical Service Bulletins” Issued On This Problem And To Lodge A Complaint With The Nhtsa. This Issue Is Safety Related Because Owners Can Be Stranded Away From Home; And This Problem Happens Continuously. Problem Occurrence: This Problem Will Occur If The Vehicle Is Parked, Shut Off, And Not Used For 3 Or More Days. Suspected Issue: As An It Professional, I Surmise The Problem’s Origin Is Based On The Car Having A Modem That Needs To “ping” And Communicate With The fordpass App On A Continual Basis (their Selling Point Is That The Car Can Be Located Anywhere If It’s Stolen). And Just Like A Cell Phone, If The Car Is Parked In An Area With Only One Bar Of Cell Service, The Unit Must Use More And More Power To Ping The Cell Tower, Thusly Draining The Car’s Battery At Exorbitantly High Rates. Couple This With The Fact That The Car’s Battery Is Not A Deep Cycle High Cca Model, And Your Left With Uncertainty That Your Car Will Start The Next Morning. *tr

2017fordfusion Hybrid – Driver’s Window Will Not Stay Closed. It Does Not Matter If The Car Is Parked Or Being Driven. When The Power Window Button Is Pulled To Close The Window, It Will Start And Then Stop When Released. If The Button Is Pulled Again, The Window Will Travel All The Way Up As If It Is Going To Close And The Open So That It Is Open 3/4 Of The Way. It Is As If The Window Came In Contact With Something And Then Reopened Automatically As If To Prevent Trapping A Hand Or Arm. The Net Effect Is That The Car Cannot Be Secured Or Driven In Inclement Weather Without Putting A Plastic Back Over The Window Area Of The Door — Thus Obstructing The Driver’s View To The Left.

Took Car To The Dealer The Third Time For A Problem With The One Touch Feature With The Front Car Windows . Called On 4/25/2017 And Talked To Repair Dept. At Glenn ford; He Explain His Remedy About The Switch Up Til Clicking; Utube Had Similar But Doesn’t Work On Mine. He Search For Service Bulletins And Indicated Something New ..reprogram.set An Appoint Next Day At 10am . Arrived At 9:55 Am And Was Rtold They Were Running Behind. Later At 10:20 They Pulled The Car Into The Back Lot. I Immediately Went To Dan ,the Service Advisor, And Asked For My Keys Since I Had An Appointment For !0:00am And Evidently My Problem ,3rd Time ,wasn’t Important To Them And That I Would Go To Another Dealer. He Said They Were Bringing It Right In. 10:45 Said Mechanic Was Downloading A New Fix That Was Just Received. 11:00 Am I Peered Into The Shop And The Window Still Was Not Working Properly. 11:15 He Came And The Fix Didn’t Wotk And Let Me Drive Off And Said He Would Be In Touch. No Copy Of Work Done. Needless To Say After 3 Months; I Can’t Believe ford Egineers Can Get A Software Bug Repair Or A Temporary Work Around. I Think I’ll Ash For Extended Warranty On My Cars Windows As Much As They Have Been Over-used Trying To Repair ;just Hope I Don’t Get Rain Damage Since At Times It Is Very Difficult To Get “almost” Closed Before The Windows Automatically Reverse And Go Down.this Happens Any Time Intermittently And Rotates Between The Driver And Passenger Windows.

The Vehicle Was Parked In A Grocery Store Parking Lot For Approximately 30 Minutes. Upon (trying) To Leave, The Vehicle Would Not Shift Out Of Park. All Other Systems Were Functioning Normally. There Were 3 Or 4 Warnings Displayed Across The Dashboard However, These Did Not Register In The Computer System. The Reset Options Provided In The Owner’s Manual Were Not Effective In Resolving The Issue Therefore, The Vehicle Needed To Be Towed To The Dealership. Also, According To The Dealership, The Vehicle Did Not Repeat The Problem The Next Day. Eventually It Was Determined That An Actuator Module Needed To Be Replaced. This, On A Car With Just Over 2100 Miles On It…..

I Purchased This Car On 8/31/16 And On 11/28/16 The Dreaded Dead Battery Problems Started. I Took In It, They Replaced The Battery On 11/28 Said That It Was Probably Just A Faulty Battery From The Manufacture And That It Happens, Rarely But It Happens. On 12/31/17 I Went To Start My Car And It Again Would Not Start. Each Time That This Has Happened, I Have To Manually Unlock My Car By Taking Off A Piece Of The Door Handle To Expose The Key Hole And The Dome Lights Or Dash Lights Do Not Come On, That’s My Dead Giveaway That It Wont Start. When I Took It To The Shop This Time They Informed Me That The Car Was Manufactured On 8/1/16 And Sat Too Long Without Being Driven So It Caused The Battery To Mess Up(even Though I Had The Battery Replaced A Month Earlier, And Drive Every Single Day To Work). I Got The Car Back And I Bet You Cant Guess What Happened On 2/4/17… My Car Was Dead. Wouldn’t Start, Wouldn’t Unlock… Dead. This Time They We’re “99.9% Sure” They Fixed The Problem By Updating My Power Train Control Module. They Hadn’t, It Died Again On 5/22/17. When I Took It In, They Updated The Powertrain Control Module And Sent Me On My Way, So I’m Just Waiting For It To Die Again Honestly. Then… I Told Them My Transmission Is Slipping On 5/22/17- They Ignored It When Doing Updates And It Wasn’t Resolved. On 6/13/17 I Took It In Because The Transmission Was Still Slipping So They Updated The Powertrain Control Module Again… Didn’t Fix It(obviously) And Then On 6/22/17 I Took It In Because I Almost Got Into An Accident Due To The Transmission Slipping And Sliding My Car Into Oncoming Traffic Trying To Shirt Gears(its Automatic) And They Replaced A Pressure Valve, Not Sure Why You Would Need To Replace A Part Like That On A Brand New Car Anyway, But The Transmission Still Acts Up.

The 2017ford Superduty Trucks Have A Remote Tailgate Release In The Lariat And King Ranch Models. The Tailgate Of My Truck And Others Have Dropped Without Action From The User. This Makes These Vehicles Unsafe When Carrying Cargo That Is Only Secured By The Tailgate Or When Towing 5th Wheel Trailers. Mine Has Dropped Some 16 Times Since November. Apparently ford Dealers Are Universally Blaming The Operators For Accidentally Pushing The Tailgate Button Twice On The Fob. However, I Had An Accident On May 6th, When I Could Not Have Pushed The Button On The Fob. The Tailgate Dropped, After I Drove Over 65 Miles On Mountain Roads – Just As I Was Entering An Interstate On-ramp. My Trucks Tailgate And My 5th Wheel Camp Trailer Were Both Damaged. Fortunately I Was Not In Traffic. The Damage To The 5th Wheel Was Just Under The Propane Tanks And Near The Mail Power Bus. I Am Changing The Truck Wiring To Disconnect Power To The Tailgate, But This Is Really Not A Satisfactory Fix. On Line I Found At Least 3 Other Instances Of This Problem. Whether The Operators And Unknowingly Activating The Tailgate Release Or The Fobs Are Faulty Or The electrical Systems Are Faulty Or Whatever The Cause, The Result Is A Hazard That Can Cause Loss Of Vehicle/ Trailer Control Or The Dropping Of Cargo On The Highways. This Is A Hazard That Needs Fixing By ford.

Battery Still Show 80 Miles Charge. Indicator Warning Shows: “stop Safely Warning Lamp” And “electric Motor Warning Lamp”. All Interior Lights Are Bright When The Car Door Is Opened, It Does Not Appear That The Battery Charge Is Low. Also There Is No Warning Of “low Battery” Before The Car Suddenly Lost Power. I Also Noticed When I Turn Off The “power/start Button”, The “information And Entertainment Display/gps” Stayed On. Even After I Have Clicked The “lock” Button On The Remote Control Key. After Pressing The “power/start/stop” Quite A Number Of Time And Switching Between The Two Keys, Then The “display Center” Finally Turn Off. We Had To Call Roadside Assistance To Have Car Towed.

Engine Stalls At Stop (after Letting Up On Brake And Auto Start Stop Re-starts The Engine) Followed By “hill Start Assist Not Available” Error Flashes Along With Other Brake Related Errors; Vehicle Engine Won’t Turn Over/start Unless Transmission Is Put Back Into Park. Upon Restarting All Engine Error/fault Messages Are Cleared And Things Seem Back To Normal. Today Was The Second Time This Has Happened. The First Time Was About 7 Days Ago. This Is Dangerous Should It Happen Entering An Intersection. I Reported The Problem To Livermore ford And They Said That Since It Is Intermittent Without A Check Engine Light On They Cannot Diagnose It.

On 09/15/16 We Purchased A 2017fordexplorer Limited From Supreme ford Of Slidell, La. Two Weeks After Having The Suv, We Noticed The Right Tail Light Was Not Working At Times. On 11/16/2016, We Drove The Vehicle Back To The Dealership To Repair The Light. When The Sales Manager Drove The Suv To The Service Department The Rear Right Taillight Was Working.. But When The Service Manager Looked At The Suv, The Light Was Working. But When We Started Back To Denham Springs, La, The Right Taillight Started Acting Up Again. I Took Several Videos Of The Light Randomly Going Off And On The Trip Back Home With My Iphone. I Attached Video Of The Light, I Edited It To A Smaller Size And Emailed Back To The Dealership. On 11/17/16 We Received A Reply From The Service Manager Stating; Thank You For Taking The Time To Video And Send It To Us Regarding The Taillamp Concern You Are Having With Your 2017explorer, The Next Time The Concern Display Itself Consistently, A Rental At Our Expense For A Day To See If We Can Isolate The Cause. [xxx] Service Manager Supreme ford Slidell [xxx] [xxx] I Replied To The Dealership; [xxx], The New 2017fordexplorer Limited Still Has A Problem With The Right Tail Light Intermittently Working About %50 Of The Time. I Do Not Think There Will Be A Time When The Tail Light Will “consittantly” Go Out… This Problem Needs To Be Repaired Asap Before Someone Is Killed In An Automobile Accident… The Video Clip I Sent You Is Just A Sampling Of The Tail Light Intermittently Going Out During Our Drive Home To Denham Springs… I Am Concerned With Driving The “lemon Vehicle” And Beleive That ford Needs To Replace The “lemon Vehicle” With A Proper Working New 2017fordexplorer Limited, With A Adaptive Cruise Control As The Salesperson Stated The Vehicle Had.

When Driving Car Lost All electrical Functions, Power Steering, Radio, Lights, Etc. I Had It Towed To Service And They Said Nothing Came Up In Diagnostics Or Error Codes. I Picked The Car Up And Within A Couple Weeks It Started Happening Again. Before It Was Only Happening When I Sat Idle For A Period Of Time And Then Started Moving. Now It Is All The Time. I Was Driving Down The Highway And Lost All Power Steering. It Is Very Dangerous. I’ve Reached Back Out To The Dealership For Service Again And Am Waiting For A Time Available To Go Back In. I Called ford And They Said They Would Notate It But Could Not Provide Me A Loaner Car While Car Was Being Fixed Or Help Me Any Further And Just To Call The Dealership. The Problem Is When It Goes In To The Dealership They Don’t See A Error Code And They Have Trouble Replicating It. It Has Now Happened To Me When Idle, At A Stop Light, While On The Highway, While Driving Down A Hill And While Driving Through A Parking Lot. There Is No Pattern Or No Way To Tell When Or How It Happens. The Photo Was At A Intersection.
