2005 Ford Five Hundred QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I had the AWD light come on the dash. Took my car to a reputable shop to have put on the computer. The tech was unable to find a code and sent me on my way not knowing why the light was on. Now almost a week later I now have a wrench light on and my car lunges when almost to a stop. If I dont have my foot on the brake it would forcefully slam forward. Very dangerous and I see several people have the same issue. Why doesnt Ford stand behind their product. Yes it is a 2005 but I also paid 38,000.00 10 years ago brand new!! I am not happy
Same problem as everyone else. Failsafe, lunges sporadically. And just had throttlebody changed less than 2wks ago. Help,...have not contacted ford,..yet?..I leafher iding while in store. Came back dang wrench and "failsafe",....????
It runs fine if I am going 50 miles an hour.
can i take a pcm from another ford 500 to put in mine which has a bad one?
Some months back I got this same error Traction Control Error. I noticed the car was slowing down but I was able to reach my destination. While leaving the error reappeared and the car wouldn't start. I checked the battery ect... everything worked. Even had someone to give me a jump thinking the battery need more juice ... but the car still wouldn't start. So I went online and read up on it the guy in the video who mentioned it could be a connection in the Differential Electronic Module and the fuse would have to be changed as well. So I changed the fuse and the car started ... it was fine for about 5 months the oil light showed and it was at 20% which was on a Wednesday. Sunday the traction control error reappeared and car was sluggish ... I looked for a place to pull over and parked. Once I parked it ... it wouldn't start again. I thought if I replace the blown fuse it would start but it fuse would blow each time I try to start the car. I read where the Haldex needed to be changed or cleaned. Which could be right the clogged filter might be draining the amperage and blowing the fuse. Any advice?

I had my Ford 500 3mos, at first all dash board lights would go outand maybe come back on the same day. Now it cuts off while driving and reverse light on while dash is out
Hard shift when braking only at around 25-30 mph. Had the software updated
and trans fluid flushed. It helped a little as car is only shifting hard now ofter
30-45 min of driving
I need to know how much it cost to repair the Trac Control on my 2005 Ford 500. Driving to church I hit a pot whole the error popped up ... so while leaving it wouldn't start. The lights work ect ... I'm thinking something might have come loose which caused the error. Is it a bad oil filter which recently I had an oil change or the connection sensor between the filter and the car? Or both? How much will it cost?
The RMP goes beyond 4 and the car is limited to the speed 40 and the car if stopped in signal will not pick up speed until the RPM reached 4. Once car is turned off for an hour then it is ok for 50 miles and then its the same problem again. There will be a burning smell from the AC vents.
Other then this starting issue, ive had no other problems.. Seem to only happen if i dont start the vehicle every 3-6 hours
