On 3/21/19 While Driving My Vehicle, The Front Passenger Door Opened. The Door Just Popped Open, I Was Driving In An Intersection Of A Busy Street And About To Make A Turn When This Occurred. It Was Terrifying And I Barely Missed An Accident. Luckily I Was Right By A Gas Station When This Happened And I Had The Car Towed To The Dealership. I Requested That The Dealership Examine All 4 Doors As I Was Afraid This Might Recur. On 4/14/19 The Same Problem Happened, Only This Time It Was The Left Rear Passenger Seat. The Door Popped Open While Driving And Would Not Shut. I Took The Car Straight To The Dealership The Next Morning. I Am Afraid To Drive This Car. I Was Told This Could Be A Child Safety Lock Issue, Yet I Do Not Use This Feature, As I Do Not Have Small Children. I Have Requested That All Latches On All Doors Be Replaced. This Is A Very Dangerous Situation. I Also Have Had Transmission Issues (stalling) Which Dealer States Is Resolved, And An Issue With The Gas Tank That I Was Told Was A Recall Then Not? What Is It? Is The Gas Tank A Recall Or Not? Id My Car Defective & Safe To Drive?

Brought My Truck Into The ford Dealership Because The Door Was Not Latching Closed At All. The Truck Is Still Under Warranty And Has Less Than 20k Miles. Later That Day The Dealership Called And Told Me The Truck Was Fixed And Ready To Be Picked Up. Less Than 48 Hours Later The Latch Again Would Not Work. I Drove The Truck Back To The Dealership While Holding The Door Closed With One Hand So It Wouldn’t Fly Open In Traffic. They Again Said It Would Be Fixed And They Told Me I Was Giving Them ‘attitude’ Because I Was Upset That It Didn’t Get Fixed The First Time. Once I Got Home I Called Another Dealership And They Informed Me That There Was Actually A Recall For This Exact Issue. My Biggest Gripe Is That The First Dealership Never Informed Me Of A Known Safety Issue With My Vehicle After Bringing It In Two Times Within A Three Day Period. I Found It To Be Alarming That They Would Send Me Back Out On The Road Without Fixing Or Even Informing Me About This Potential Hazard Recall.

I’m April Of 2018 The Electric Tailgate On My 2017 ford F-350 Started Opening On Its Own Anytime And Anywhere. It Did Not Matter If The Truck Was In Park Or In Gear But Did Not Open At Speeds Above 10 Mph Or So. After Going To The ford Dealership In Elkhart In. I Was Told There Was Nothing That Could Be Done Because If They Unhooked The Wiring L Could Not Open The Tailgate. I Pull A 5th Wheel Trailer With The Truck So This Was Not An Option If L Wanted A Tailgate. I Tried To Watch The Best L Could Before Taking Off To Make Sure The Tailgate Was Closed When L Would Move The Truck. I Did Not Notice That It Had Come Down Again And Made A Turn With The Trailer Hooked To The Truck. Needless To Say The Tailgate Was Crushed Beyond Use And Broke A Twilight Lens At The Same Time. Again L Went To The ford Dealership In Elkhart In And Was Told They Had No Reports Of Problems And There Was Nothing They Could Do About It. The Tailgate Has Not Been Replaced Do To The Fact L Am Sure There Is Still An Is Sure.

This Has Occurred 40-50 Times Randomly Since Purchasing The Truck New In August 2017. Notified The Dealer Of Issue And ford Tsb-2196 But Was Informed That Because My Vehicle Was Produced After June 2017, It Does Not Apply To My Problem. Unless They Can Duplicate The Issue, They Will Not Address The Issue. No Damage Has Occurred Because Of The Camper Shell Preventing Tailgate From Dropping.

Tailgate Opens Unexpectedly. I Bought My 2017 F350 Lariat Dually Used In June 2017. 8 Days After I Bought The Truck The Tailgate Opened While I Was Towing A Gooseneck Horse Trailer. Luckily I Was About 50 Feet From My Driveway. The Tailgate Was Contacted By The Trailer As I Turned And Has Some Damage From An Aluminum Foot Stool Falling Out. It Has Happened 3 Other Times. Each Time I Thought I Had Possibly Bumped The Key Fob In My Pocket, As It Has A Tailgate Release Button. You Do Have To Touch The Button Two Times In Succession For The Tailgate To Open. Each Time It Has Happened I Have Started Or Moved The Truck, Unlocked And Opened The Drivers Door And Then Got Back In The Truck. I Believe There Is Some Correlation But I Have Not Been Able To Duplicate It. Each Time The Vehicle Was Under Way, But I Did Not See It Open As I Have Tinted Windows. And I Usually Don’t Watch The Tailgate In The Mirrors.

Two Issues.: 1) I Had A Hard Time Keeping The Tires Inflated To The Correct Levels. After Four Or Five Trips Back To The Dealership, This Issue May Be Corrected. It Was So Bad I Had To Purchase A Pump To Make Sure I Could Pump The Tires Up When I Was Away From Home — Rving. The Dealership Would Have To Have Known About The Issue When They Sold Me The Vehicle. The Truck Could Lose 30 Pounds Of Tire Pressure Over A Two Week Period. I Purchased The Truck In March 2018. 2) On Four Or Five Occasions The Tailgate Has Fallen Open. Once It Did It While I Was Towing A Trailer. On The Other Occasions It Has Fallen Open Without Us Knowing It. Today, My Wife Used The Truck. She Got Home And Parked The Truck In The Driveway. When She Went Out To Check The Mail, She Found The Tail Gate Open. We Recently Complained To Fox ford, The Dealership That Sold Us The Truck. When My Wife Took The Truck In For An Oil Change, She Complained About The Tailgate Issue. They Claimed They “tightened It” According To My Wife. Well, The Problem Has Not Been Solved.

My Wife And Daughter Were Traveling South On Interstate 55 North Of Sikeston, Missouri. My Wife Was Driving The Truck. And Was At The Time Of The Incident Passing A Semi-truck. She Noticed The Truck Lost Power In The Engine And A Light Came On On The Dash. A Message Appeared On The Dash Relating To The Power Loss. She Was Able To Get The Truck To The Shoulder Safely. As Soon As She Stopped The Truck, She Noticed Smoke Coming From Under The Hood And Told Our Daughter To Get Out Of The Truck. As Soon As They Got To The Tailgate Flames Started Shooting Out Of The Truck. She Saw That The Fire Started On The Lower Right Hand Side Of The Engine With Flames Dropping Down About One Foot From The Front Passenger Tire. This Is The Location Of The Oil Filter On The Truck. The Truck Was Soon Engulfed In Flames. This Incident Happened At Approximately 3:30 In The Afternoon. She Had The Oil Changed At The ford Dealership In Cape Girardeau, Missouri (ford Groves) Earlier That Day. Luckily There Were No Injuries And Only Property Damage Resulting From The Fire. If There Had Been A Child In A Child Restraint, It Could Have Been Tragic. The Truck Was Towed By D & K Towing And Stored At Their Facility In Sikeston. The Scott County Fire Department Responded To The Fire. The Truck And Thousands Of Dollars In Personal Property Were Destroyed In The Incident.

Automatic Tailgate Assist Just Randomly Goes Down Either While Driving, While In Park, Or Even Just For No Reason. This Happened While In Park With A Trailer On The Back And Caused $2000 In Damage Which We Had To Pay For. Luckily All The Other Times It Has Happened, There Was Not A Trailer On The Back. We Were Not Touching The Key Fob, So It Didn’t Get “pinched” In A Pocket Or Anything.

I Am Having The Same Issue As In Case # Pe18-011. My Tailgate Will Open Randomly On Its Own. The Tailgate Release Will Actuate Over And Over When The Button Is Pushed Once. Took It To A ford Dealer And They Confirmed That It Is The Same Issue As Tsb 17-2196. Water Gets Into A Wiring Harness. This Should Be A Safety Recall As The Tailgate Opening While Towing Could Cause A Limit To Steering Ability As The Tailgate Can Make Contact With The Front Of The Trailer. It Can Also Cause Damage To The Tailgate Itself If It Lands On Something.

While Driving With A Cross Wind, Especially On Two Lane Roads When Passed In The Opposite Direction By A Semi, The Hood Jumps (pops) Up Approximately 1-2 Inches On The Rear Edge. In High Cross Winds The Distance Has Been Higher (3-4) Inches. Have Had To Dealer Look At It And Talked To ford “chat Line”. Their Suggestion Was To Report It Here. The Rear Hinges Allow The Hood To Rotate Up When Latched . The Front Latch Is Taking An Excessive Amount Of Upward Force In These Situations And Likely To Fail Or Metal Fatigue. Believe The Cross Wind Effectively Creates A Vacuum Which Is Increased By A Passing Vehicle Which “sucks” The Hood Upwards. There Is A Normal “vibration” Or Shaking Of The Hood Likely Because Of The Lightening Of The Material. This Is Not What I Am Referring To. Ongoing/repetitive Issue. Has Occurred Since New

The Automatic Tailgate In The 2017 King Ranch F250 Can Come Open Without Any Warning When In Drive. This Has Happened To Me At Least 4 Times; Most Recently While Pulling My Airstream Trailer While In Utah, Causing Damage To My Airstream Propane Bottles, The Aluminum Cover, And Also Putting A Dent In My F250 Tailgate. This Issue Could Cause Serious Problems In Traffic, Should Something Fall Out Of The Back During This Malfunction. My Experience Recently: I Had Just Entered The Freeway And Was Accelerating To Freeway Speeds In Utah, After A Quick Stop For Takeout Breakfast At Mcdonalds. A Trucker Flagged Me Down To Pull Over As I Entered The Freeway. He Ran Back And Told Me My Tailgate Was Open. Upon Inspection, It Appeared The Open Tailgate Had Caused Damage To My Propane Tanks On My Airstream, The Aluminum Cover, And Also Put A Dent In The Tailgate When Leaving Mcdonalds Parking Lot Onto The Street To Get Back Onto The Freeway. We Were Lucky Nothing Had Fallen Out Of The Rear Bed, As It Was Packed With Camping Gear. The Automatic Tailgate Can Only Be Activated By The ?keyfob? Or By Manually Pressing The Release Button On The Tailgate When Unlocked. 1) There Is No Way To Open Or Lock The Tailgate Other Than The Push Button On The Tailgate Or With The Keyfob. 2) There Is No Indication The Tailgate Is Down, Once In Drive. (safety Issue) 3) The Tailgate Can/does Open Intermittently On Occasion While In Drive Without Any Operator Intervention.

I Recently Parked My Tt At Our New Rv Campground. While Backing It Up The Gate Opened Randomly In The Middle Of A Turn And Dented The Top Of My Tailgate. Extremely Upset I New It Was Going To Be A Hard Case To Submit To Warranty For Them To Believe That It Wasn?t User Error. A Few Days Later I Left Work And Drove 20 Miles Down The Highway Only To Get To Where I Was Going And Get Out Of My Truck To See The Tailgate Down With A Full Propane Tank In The Back An A $1000 Worth Of Fishing Poles. Today I Took My Wife To Lunch And When We Parked And Got Out The Gate Was Down Again. We Ate Went A Few Miles Down The Road, Shopped And Unlocked The Doors Using The Fob And The Gate Dropped. That?s Twice In One Day. It Was Getting Worse. Shortly After, I Got A Last Minute Call To Move My Tt Due To Rising Waters Here In Buchanan At The Rv Park And While I Was Getting Ready To Leave The Gate Opened On Its Own While The Doors Were Unlocked. So I Got Out My Camera And Closed The Gate. Within 20 Seconds It Opened Again. This Time I Video Taped It And Texted The Video To My ford Warranty Rep. I Rushed My Truck To Covert ford And By Gods Good Grace The Tailgate Opened Repeatedly In Front Of Every ford Rep Working. I?ll Let You Know What They Find. My Truck Is A 2017 F250 Lariat Ultimate. I Have A Video But It Is 9.63mb. Email Me If You Want It.

Automatic Electric Tail Gate Opens Randomly Without Driver Selection. This Has Happened Several Times While Vehicle Is Moving And Has Caused Damage To Tailgate And Travel Trailer. No Indication Tailgate Is Open Given To Driver. This Happened Within The First 100 Miles After Purchase, The First Time. It Happened Several Times After That. Last Incident I Had Just Pulled Onto The Freeway And Was Flagged Down By A Passing Trucker While I Was Driving At 65mph That My Tailgate Had Opened. Imagine If Something Had Fallen Out Of The Bed Of My Truck And Caused Another Motorist To Crash. I Had Heard A Creaking Sound While Turning Onto A Roadway With My Airstream Travel Trailer Attached. The Tailgate Had Crunched Against The Propane Bottles Causing Damage To The Tailgate, The Propane Bottles, And The Cover. This Had Happened To Me Several Times In Other Instances But Thought It Was A Fluke Until This Last Event While Towing My Airstream Travel Trailer. I Contacted ford Dealer Where I Purchased In Austin; They Submitted To ford And ford Said They Would Pay Part Of The Bill, But I Am On The Hook To Pay Also. This Is A ford Wiring Harness Issue. Several Other People Have Reported Same Issue. ford Should Fix This 100% Before Something Serious Accident Occurs From Items Falling Out Of The Back Of The Truck When Bed Opens Automatically.
