Since they reprogrammed the computer, and are now telling you it's the dashboard - they clearly do not know what the problem is and are guessing at your expenses. If they are sure the dashboard is the problem have them give them you money back if it doesn't work. FYI - I had this very same issue with a Ford Contour. NO ONE (even some of the best diagnostic shops in my area) could figure out what it was.
I got rid of the car.

Did you have the same problem, ie vibrating while braking and when accelerating at high speed?
Also, do you have any other details about the fix? If I was going to relay this info. to my transmission guy-which valve would I refer him to?

#112 of 265 Ford 500 Transmission Problem
Apr 24, 2008 (5:25 am)
My 2005 Ford 500 down shifts for no reason at highway speed. At 70+ on cruise control, in traffic when you tap the brake to slow when you touch the accelerator again, lightly, the car down shifts really hard with a loud sound. The Ford technician who rode with me to trouble shoot was really impressed with how hard it is. They say I need a new valve block for $ 1,000 parts and labor. Any one else have this happen.

#114 of 265 Releasing rear clipper piston

How do you release the piston on the rear clipper so that the pads can be replaced? I have replace the front and all is fine. The emergency brake may be the problem.
