Service changes every 3000 miles by Ford. Serviced just completed. Light came on afterwards. Reset oil life, but engine symbol stays on.

As I was driving on the Grand central Pkwy the car shut down on me and said failed engine safe mode I cut i T off waited 5min then cut it back on it came on as normal

Just ran car and blower still doesn't work.

The fuel gauge car seams to be fine except when sitting still it will jump up on the Rpms. I got a TPS today but I can't for the life of me figure out where it goes. It doesn't match pics in the book or online

When I start the car after sitting all night nothing in the dash works

When I start the car after sitting all night nothing in the dash works

New starter, new battery, new computer still not starting.

The battery died on the vehicle and I attempted to have it charged and used the remote to start, the lights started flickering like crazy and did not start. Attempted to charge it again and it will not charge or start and the battery wires are getting hot? Any ideas?

At first when I push the gas it use to sound like air then it started to jerk and shutting off

I replaced the 02 sensor and the light still comes on

The fan runs constantly for my heater and a/c. Doesn't matter if its on auto or manual.

System normal until placed in reverse, then "off" warning illuminates and stays on until ignition is turned off. I've seen elsewhere that I should listen for "ticking at the sensor, but won't they be de-energized if the switch indicates that the system is off?

When I come to a stop my care won't go or the gear switch by it self

I used the OBD II / EOBD CODE READER and found the following code (4 error codes)
P0171 System too lean Bank 1
P0374 Timing Reference Hig n Resolution Signal A No Pulses
P0171 System too lean Bank 1
P0374 Timing Reference Hig n Resolution Signal A No Pulses

The same code reader gave me RPM(rpm): 705.50 while the engine was running but the gear was in Parked position

I don’t feel anything while driving the 2006 Ford Five hundred SEL (I don’t have much knowledge about vehicles), It accelerates well and goes easily to 40miles per hour when given the acceleration (I have not tried beyond 40 miles/hr in order to avoid any damage, as I bought it recently and want to repair it before use) the odometer reads about 200,000 miles, I showed to a local mechanic he said the gear is either in 2nd or 3rd (limp mode) after a short test drive, which made me little worried, what can be the possible reasons of this errors and what should I do to make it a smooth running 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",....????

Looking for "parts replaced" info from owners w/similar problem.

It runs fine if I am going 50 miles an hour.

Fuel pump not getting power

The question is simple.

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?
