My traction control comes on for a few seconds on my brand new 07 and the dealership treats me the sameway. My sunroof broke this week and the wind piece him me in the head while I was driving. I have had it with Ford and have decided to call my lawyer and file a lemon law clame. It's already took me 1 full page to document the times I've took it to the shop in the short 6 months i've had it.
HAS anyone had a problem with brakes / traction control? The dealership plugs mine into the computer but there are no codes. I think its because the computer thinks its doing what is right although it doesn't. They can't duplicate the problem and it does it very random too. They won't even open the hood or do anything but drive it and return it with an empty tank of gas ( and I usually have a full tank when the problem happens and have to take it in).

If you have another dealer located near enough by, you might want to try them.

I have a 2007 Ford Exp LTD. The climate control problem was first diagnosed as due to a low charged AC system. They filled it up and the problem resurfaced about a week later. Ford dealer then took the vehicle for two weeks to determine what was going on and eventually replaced the head unit. Unfortunately for me when they did so, they also replaced the push button switches and elimated my power liftgate button. They eventually took care of that snafu. As for the climate control problem itself, it still occurs. Once it even did the cut off, and then restart but when it came back on, it was full tilt! None of the controls worked....even the power switch! I pulled over, turned the vehicle off, let it sit for a few minutes and then restarted, everything back to normal. Go figure.
There is a TSB out for a similar problem. I suggest calling your Ford service mgr. first and then be prepared for them to "dirve it around and try to duplicate the problem". This could be futile since I never could determine what series of events needed to occur before the AC cut out. I have resolved myself to the fact that the vehicle is possessed.

when i went to machine the rotors on my 04 expedition, i found that my rotors were conveniently rusted onto the assembly. i tried using a rubber mallet and screwdriver and did not make any progress. i decided it was worth the extra money to have my local mechanic do it instead. i would suggest (if you haven't done so already) to call a trusted mechanic and talk to them about the rotors. if you don't have a trusted mechanic, ask friends if they have a guy they trust and see if you can get the mechanic to tell you how to get the rotors off. if you feel it's too big of a task then it might be worth spending the extra money. hope this helps.

not sure if you have found a solution to your problem yet, but i just wanted to throw my two cents out there. i have an 04 expy eddie bauer with the electronic hvac controls. i used to notice that the ac would randomly stop blowing cold air. i noticed it mostly when i drove long distances. i took it into the dealership and they said it was some sort of related wire harness. they fixed it at no cost (under warranty) and said that there was a TSB out for that problem. maybe similar to yours???
#1720 of 1953 r/r ac/heat seat switches
Nov 27, 2007 (7:53 am)
The driver seat heat/ac switch on my 2003 EB has quit working. I took apart the console, figuring I could get to it that way. I still cannot get to the switch. can anyone give me guidance on how to replace the switch? Thanks

Hmmm... I have a 2004 Eddie Bauer Expedition, and I was able to get the seat heater/AC switch. First off, there's a screw in the large bin toward the front of the center console under the rubber mat. You need to unscrew that. Then you have to pry along the seam under the center console along each side. You should be able to pop the cover off. There might be another screw accessible through the center storage box, but I don't think there way.
Anyway, once I popped that cover off, the switches were easy to access and are only attached by a screw and a harness clip. Good luck!
#1722 of 1953 Cold + Idle = shutdown
Dec 04, 2007 (4:49 pm)
I have a 2002 which when cold (temp gauge) and when the engine is idle, the car shuts off. When its warm, the truck is good to go. We tried going to Ford but I think they messed up something as the diagnostic doesn't show anything wrong ... I think its a sensor of some sought but unsure... what can i try or look for???
