I do alot of stop light switches for this concern,check to see if your brake lights operate.if not check for power into the switch,then press the brake and check for power out of the switch.
Question Answered: fuel gauge shows full tank, but it is 1/2 a tank

more than likely your vehicle is a flex fuel model.under the driver's side of the dash is a flex fuel module that is very notorious for this exact concern.it is about 2 inch square black plastic with a small metal bracket that bolts to the center dash frame.

could be as simple as an engine compartment battery,or as complex as an abs module.you need to take it to a dealer to retrieve the trouble codes stored in the system.we need these codes to begin our diagnostic process,otherwise we would just be guessing.

the wrench light indicates a concern with the powertrain,engine or trans. there should be a trouble code stored in one or more modules.you will need to take it to a dealer and have it scanned to see what it needs.

It sounds similar to an exhaust restriction.put a vacuum gauge on a vacuum line and rap the throttle while in park.the vacuum should snap back to what it was at idle.if it moves slowly to the reading at idle you have a restriction.also the baro pid is a telltale sign(if you have a scan tool available)anything in the 149hz and below is also an indicator.or if you have access to a backpressure gauge,should not read above 3psi.good luck!

check for vacuum leaks,mainly the pcv tube behind the throttle body.very common!
Question Answered: when do you tune -up this truck

usually at about 60-70,000 miles the spark plugs start breaking down and is a good time to change them before you destroy your catalytic converters with a misfiring engine.

when the voltage to the cluster drops below a preset point,it will prove out.sounds like a battery that is weak.
Problem Reported: Fuel filling issues due to manufacturing defect in fuel tank
December 07, 2013, 10:51 PM
According to TSB 05-15-12
Some 2005 Mustang vehicles built before 4/26/2005, may exhibit the fuel tank being slow or difficult to fill. The condition may be described as, repeated rapid shut-offs of the filling station pump nozzle, or multiple nozzle shut-offs when attempting to fill the fuel tank. The condition may be due to the tank vapor venting system inside the fuel tank.
Some pump nozzle shut-offs may be due to the filling station pump delivering the fuel too quickly. This is normal.
A new fuel tank with a revised design is available.

only a couple of issues,1. coolant pump failure. 2. auxiliary blend door actuator failure. both issues will cause vehicle to enter failure management mode,wrench light on,vehicle will barely move.other than these concerns,the only thing I do on these vehicles is scheduled maintenance.
