#1356 of 1524 Ownership report after year and half
Jul 09, 2006 (7:57 am)
I bought a new 2005 V6 auto mustang in Dec. 05. Since then this is how the car has performed for current or propective buyers. When new, it had a rear brake noise, clunking sound from front end and fueling problem. All corrected under warranty from dealer. For the next year, no problems. One year later, the fueling problem reappeared. At first, Ford said there was nothing they could do, but a very good service manager at Mccoy Mills Ford in Fullerton California went the extra mile for me and installed a 06 fuel tank for my 05 car even though ford said it was not necessary. Anyway, it worked; no more fueling problems. So, at this time, the car runs good, no problems and I intend to keep it.
#1362 of 1524 Can you reset the "smart junction box"?
Jul 13, 2006 (11:20 am)
I have problems. I have imported an '05 GT into the UK. When this was done an SVA (Single Vehicle Approval) conversion was done to add turn signals to each side of the car, plus make the rear light cluster indicate with an amber light. (we have to do this in the UK even though it ruins the look of the car!)
I have had the car for 14 months and suddenly it had decided it want to keep the right side turn signal ON permanently.
I have done a little research and found that there is a chance the "smart junction box" has failed due to the effects of the SVA conversion. Does anyone know about he "Smart box"? Can it be reset somehow? I have found a guy in the UK who says its costs £490 GBP to replace the box!!!!! plus £999 GBP to sort out the lights again properly.
Any info on this would go down very well.
