I'm in the bad compressor boat as well. Your lucky your dealer had the part. I'm one of five people since Friday in SW Missouri at one specific dealer who's called about a faulty compressor. The other dealer had the same warehouse out, manufacturer back order situation. Anybody know if Motorcraft is having issues or a factory recall is on the horizon?
#214 of 265 Dash functions and a/c go out on 2006 Montego

Over the past week, on several occassions I lose the dash function and air conditioning. A tap/bang on the dash and function resumes. Local dealerships say they haven't seen this before. Like the car but this is unusual. Anybody experienced anything like this before. Is it a short?

Sounds more like an intermittent "open" probably caused by a loose or dirty connection.

My 05 Montego has a similar problem. Back-up lights stay when started on and the oil and brake light in the instrument cluster stay on. Also, blinker arrows on instrument not working and can't lock doors via pwr lock. Started out intermittent, but happens always now. Has anyone else had these same symptoms? I'm guessing that this is probably a bad instrument cluster too.

Poor argument, and I hate it when "car" people use it. My car cost $28K and my new computer $550, which I expect to replace every couple of years. Not so with my car. When I can buy a new car for $550, then tell me to expect less than I deserve.

Did you get this resolved? I had the rear brakes replaced 5 months ago on my 2005 Ford 500 Ltd. AWD. At 48,000 miles, I am having the same sudden accleration/bolting action, and it is SCARY beyond belief! It occurs, on an ocassional basis, in drive and reverse. Seems to be the same problem as on the Toyotas. In addition, the cruise control went dead at the same time. Since the warranty has expired, Ford will not pay for anything, and they want to charge $108 just to run diagnostics on it.
I will never have another Ford!!! I liked this car and it has been through a lot, and I have taken it to Ford everytime for whatever problems have popped up, and within a couple of years, the same problem recurs. Tells me they never fixed it correctly to begin with. Their service STINKS!!! I even told Ford that, and I did not receive any reaction at all from them. They could care less!!!
If you could help, please let me know.

I just bought a 06Montego w/49k miles. It didnt come w/manual so I have a few issues. First the code on the door, is this something in the manual? If I have to go to a dealer, how much would it cost? Second, somebody posted something about the AUX button. I checked that particular website and the kit doesnt have the montego(or 500) as conpatible with it. Could I go to any shop for this? Lastly( I know its a lot), How much would it cost at a dealer for remote keyless entry w/alarm? These r my 3 issues right now. I hope these are it, but probably not? Anything would be really appreciated. Thank you.

I have a 2006 Ford 500 and it definitely has a cabin filter. I had it replaced once. I believe it is under the plastic flashing on the outside beneath the windshield.
