VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

11/14/2013 – TYRONE, GA

WHEN THE TEMPERATURE IS COLD, THE ACCELERATOR WILL NOT ALLOW ITSELF TO BE DEPRESSED AFTER 1-2 MINUTES OF DRIVING, AND THEN FOR THE NEXT 10-15 MINUTES. OCCASIONALLY, TAPPING ON THE PEDAL, OR PUSHING EXTREMELY HARD WILL MAKE IT MOVE AND THE VEHICLE WILL DANGEROUSLY AND RAPIDLY ACCELERATE DUE TO THE EXCESSIVE FORCE REQUIRED UNTIL THE DRIVER IS ABLE TO ADJUST THE FORCE, WHICH SOMETIMES CAUSES THE PEDAL TO BECOME STUCK CLOSED AGAIN ON A HIGH SPEED ROAD.

OVER THE YEARS, THIS PROBLEM HAS BECOME PROGRESSIVELY WORSE. IT IS VERY DANGEROUS AND SHOULD BE FIXED BY THE MANUFACTURER.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

I HAVE HAD THE FUEL LINE REPLACE AND NOW I HAVE TO HAVE THE THROTTLE BODY REPLACED. THE MECHANIC SAID FOR BOTH PARTS – THEY WERE DEFECTIVE PARTS. I CAN NOT PRESS ON THE GAS TO ACCELERATE.

AT TIMES THIS HAPPENS WHILE I AM DRIVING WHICH CAN CAUSE AN ACCIDENT.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

Mercury Mariner

THE CONTACT OWNS A 2006 MERCURY MARINER. THE CONTACT STATED THAT WHILE AT A STOP LIGHT, THE VEHICLE STALLED WITHOUT WARNING. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO AN INDEPENDENT MECHANIC FOR DIAGNOSIS WHERE IT WAS STATED THAT THE TORQUE CONVERTER NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT REPAIRED AND THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOTIFIED.

THE APPROXIMATE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 108,000. UPDATED 09/25/13 THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO STALL WHEN COMING TO A STOP. THE DEALER CONFIRMED, THE TRANSMISSION NEEDED TO BE SERVICED.

POWER TRAIN: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

WHILE BUILDING SPEED VIA AN ON-RAMP ON CA FREEWAY 680, THE TRANSMISSION BEGAN TO FAIL. WITHIN ROUGHLY 200 YARDS, THE CAR LOST POWER AND, THANKFULLY, I WAS ABLE TO GET MY CAR TO THE SIDE OF THE FREEWAY. THE FIRST TIME I WAS ABLE TO GET THE CAR TO WORK AGAIN, I WAS ONLY ABLE TO DRIVE ABOUT 50 YARDS.

I THEN LET THE CAR ‘REST’ FOR ABOUT 20-30 MINUTES (WHILE I CONTACT MY ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE COMPANY). AFTER THAT AMOUNT OF TIME, I TRIED THE CAR AGAIN AND WAS ABLE TO DRIVE TO THE NEXT OFF-RAMP (INDUSTRIAL WAY, BENICIA, CA). AT THE STOP SIGN OF THAT OFF-RAMP, THE CAR FAILED AGAIN AND I CHOSE TO HAVE IT TOWED INSTEAD OF CONTINUE TRYING TO MAKE IT WORK PROPERLY.

MY MARINER IS A 2006 WITH ONLY 77,541 MILES! MY CAR EVENTUALLY GOT TO A TRANSMISSION SHOP TO BE FIXED, BUT IT WAS IN MY RESEARCH OF THE PROBLEM THAT I FOUND FAILING/FAULTY TRANSMISSIONS TO BE A VERY COMMON AND KNOWN ISSUE FOR MARINERS WITH LOW MILEAGE (MODEL YEARS OF 2005-2011, AT LEAST). MY COMPLAINT IS THAT THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ISSUED BECAUSE THIS IS A WELL KNOWN PROBLEM.

SERVICE BRAKES

WHILE DRIVING IN THE LOS ANGELES, CA THE BRAKE SYSTEM MESSAGE CAME ON INDICATING THAT THE ABS FEATURE HAD SHUT DOWN AND I WAS LEFT WITH ONLY BASIC HYDRAULIC BRAKES. I TOOK IT TO THE FORD DEALER AND THEY FOUND A TECHNICAL BULLETIN THAT INDICATED THEY NEED TO JUMP ONE WIRE IN THE SYSTEM. I HAD THAT DONE AND PAID FOR THE REPAIR. SEVERAL DAYS LATER THE CHECK BRAKE SYSTEM MESSAGE CAME ON AGAIN.

BOTH TIMES THE CODE READER INDICATED THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE VEHICLE AT THE FORD DEALER. THE CHECK BRAKE MESSAGE CLEARS AFTER YOU TURN THE VEHICLE OFF FOR A PERIOD OF TIME. THE VEHICLE HAS DONE THIS A NUMBER OF TIMES DURING THE FOLLOWING MONTHS INCLUDING ON APRIL 26 AND 29. ON MAY 3, 2013 I REVISITED THE DEALER AND HAD THE SYSTEM RECHECKED AND THEY FOUND NOTHING WRONG.

THEY CONNECTED THE CODE READER AND EXAMINED THE VEHICLE AND COULD NOT FIND A PROBLEM. ON MAY 15, 2013, THE CHECK BRAKE MESSAGE CAME ON AND THIS TIME I DID NOT TURN THE VEHICLE OFF SO THE BRAKE SYSTEM MESSAGE (CHECK BRAKE SYSTEM AND THE BUZZER SOUNDING) WAS ON WHEN THE MECHANIC ARRIVED. AGAIN THEY CHECKED THE VEHICLE AND THE CODE READER INDICATED ALL SYSTEMS WERE FINE, EVEN THOUGH THE MESSAGE CENTER SAID THERE WAS A PROBLEM.

THE PERSONNEL WE TALKED TO INDICATED THAT THIS PROBLEM HAS HAPPENED TO A NUMBER OF OTHER VEHICLES AND WAS MOST LIKELY CAUSE BY THE WIRING HARNESS BUT COULD NOT GUARANTEE THAT WOULD FIX THE INTERMITTENT PROBLEM. THE COST TO FIX THIS PROBLEM WAS $4000. THIS IN OUR OPINION IS A MANUFACTURER DEFECT.

THE WIRING HARNESS HASN’T BEEN TAMPERED WITH AND ALL REPAIRS HAVE BEEN DONE AT A FORD DEALER. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AS THE ABS FAILURE COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT ON SLIPPERY ROADS OR DURING FAST STOPS.
