2006 Ford Five Hundred Problems

electrical system

The entire dashboard flashes, the back lights and alarm go off when driving forward. it idles up and down. it loses power when driving even when the gas pedal is to the floor, it will not pick up speed. I was told by local ford dealer that it was the instrument cluster but that is far from what's really wrong with car. It has not been fixed!!!! The car still does everything listed above.

Check Engine Light and Poor Throttle Response

A defective electronic throttle body (ETB) can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate and could have limited to no throttle response. Our technicians tall us that replacing the electronic throttle body will commonly correct this concern.

Harsh or Delayed Shifting of Automatic Transmission

The automatic transmission may develop shifting concerns. On lower mileage vehicles, upgrading the software in the powertrain control module (PCM) and the transmission control module (TCM) may correct the problem. As the mileage increases, internal transmission damage can occur. Repairs could involve replacement of the valve body or a complete transmission rebuild. Whenever major transmission repairs are made, it is important to be sure the PCM and the TCM have the latest software updates to help prevent these issues from reoccurring.

I bought my 2006 five hundred from a dealer, used..paid wayyyyy too much, and have had nothing but problems with it! battery, alternator, right after i purchased it. tires were all shiny..until i washed it a few times, tires were dry rotted. then and now the car is hard to start when it is damp out..no problems in cold or winter, but, rainy, moisture, damp, cool, hard to start. just had a tune-...
We have had so many problems with this car!! We have had to replace the transmission, which Ford was no longer building at the time and we had to have a private company re-build it, the fuel pump, and have had to have the steering column fixed on several occasions. This car looks nice and drives nice, when it doesn't have problems, but is VERY EXPENSIVE to fix! Don't buy this car, save yourself...
