2009 Ford Mustang GT Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2009 Ford Mustang GT based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
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.
If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.
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.
