2006 Ford Five Hundred Problems

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.

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.

2006 Ford Five Hundred Questions

I've opened and closed all doors and trunk but the alarm keeps going off. It seems to happen when I'm going over bumps. Then the interior lights just go on once in a while. They don't always go out when I park the car. How can I turn them off?

ac compressor kicks on but does not cycle properly never shuts off till I turn it off from inside by turning off switch.

New a/c system 2 years ago and this car has never really blown cold before or after the new system installed. Can't figure it out. Low side pressure is 50 psi and steady at 90 degrees ambient temp. cleaned the radiator and condenser fins and no change. Anyone have a clue?
