2011 Ford Mustang GT QuestionsRefine by vehicle
THIS MUSTANG GT RTR(AUTO) HAS ONLY 14,500 MILES, GARAGED 80% OF THE TIME. WASN'T AWARE I HAS THIS ISSUE UNTIL I TRIED TO HAVE IT INSPECTED. ALL FUSES AND BLUB'S ARE WORKING. EVERY OTHER LIGHTING SYSTEM FUNCTION'S. I SUSPECT IT'S AN ISSUE AT THE TRANSMISSION. FORD TECH STATES THEY HAVE TO REMOVE THE ENTIRE INTERIOR, SEATS AND CONSOLE BECAUSE THE MODULE IS LOCATED NEAR THE SHIFTING LINKAGE. THERE IS NO SWITCH BY DESIGN.
RECENTLY HAS THE RIGHT REAR AXLE REPLACED.
dealer service rep said it was a common problem- suggested jiggling the plastic funnel on flap - did no good?
dealer service rep said it is a common problem, suggested to jiggle plastic factory funnel to get rid of sand or dirt blocking silver flap from closing - did no good. check engine lite always on probably for above problem and custom wheels without sensors hooked up - just bought this car in COLO, came from TX with their emission passed - has boss 302 intake manifold and Roush axle back exhaust and lowered springs and wide wheels with 45 profile front, 40 rear - runs like a clock, so their tune on the new manifold must be correct. even if the exhaust emission test comes out passed, can COLO fail the car because of the check engine light? would you recommend iridium plugs down the road, has new standard plugs now. has new regular oil now, would you recommend synthetic down the road? has manual tranny.
I was pulling into the drive way which was covered with snow. I had the traction control turned off. I stepped onto the gas to turn the car around in the driveway. It was a controlled 180 degree turn. In the middle of the turn, the advance trac disabled itself and would not let the car move at all. It would not go forward or backward. I live on a slight hill. Turned the car off for 5 minutes, shoveled the snow, the advanced trac disabled light went off, and I could barely move the car before the red light came on again.
The car is an automatic and has done this (3) times since. The dealer says he cannot find anything wrong. Has anyone else had this issue?
