2009 Ford Mustang GT Problems

Blower Motor Only Works on High

The 2005-2009 Ford Mustang GT with manual temperature and fan controls may have problems with the the blower motor only blowing air on certain settings. This affects the Mustang Bullitt, Shelby Mustang GT350 and Shelby Mustang GT500 as well. 

Most commonly the fan will only run on the highest setting. This is a well documented problem, and is caused by a failing blower motor resistor.

Correcting the problem is straight forward, and requires replacement of the small resistor. The resistor is normally found behind the glove box, next to the blower motor.

Squeaking noise while turning due to worn outer tie rod ends

If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.

Buzzing Type Noise From Upper Engine Area

4.0L V6 engines may develop a buzzing type noise from the upper engine area at about 1900 RPM, under light acceleration. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by loose ignition coil bracket bolts. Coil bracket bolts should be checked for the correct torque before further diagnoses is performed.

I bought a 2009 Ford Mustang GT Premium (45th Anniversay Edition) and it is a piece of crap. I spent over $1200 before could diagnose that the air conditioner relay was faulty. This relay killed my battery, my alternator, and one of the fuse boxes in the Fix Or Repair Daily. To make things better, Ford has not offered to compensate me for buying their worthless, made in America crap. By the...
