I usually run with the lights set to auto. One evening I noticed the parking lights were on after the car had been shutdown and locked for several hours. If i unplug the headlight switch, the parking lights and headlights come on. I pulled fuse for parking lights and nothing went off. I have replaced the headlight switch to no avail.
I have a 2011 Ford Flex and I'm having a coolant leakage problem and its a Consumer Report on the news about Ford having a coolant leakage...
My cell phone is synced to the car. I am driving and the icon for Advance Trac comes on. The panel says AdvanceTrac needs service. I keep driving and think the car started to skid very slightly. I slow down. I turn the radio off. With the radio off, I think I hear voices talking...twice. (Thinking to my self, I better not tell anyone I am hearing voices or they will think I am crazy. Can't figure it out, could someone be talking to me through the phone in my pocket?) Maybe three or four minutes later I am on a 4-lane divided road (Route 1 in Delaware County, PA). I am still driving a little slowly, maybe 40 or 45 miles per hour, in the right lane. straight, flat road, not passing anyone, no one passing me. The car suddenly slides rapidly to the left, I try to compensate but the car seems to be swerving back and forth and I have no control. I have moved into the passing lane and now turning right, I head straight into the guard rail on the right continuing to spin until the rear end hits the same right guard rail. Air bags deploy and Sync automatically calls 911.
Do I need to do
Wires got power but blower won't work
i have replaced both fan`s the fan module the ac compresser switch and the thermostat and added freon to the system all of this was not done at once but one by one because every time we would fix some thing it would work and be fine for a few days and then it would over heat again. if any one has any ideas please let me know i am out of ideas my self

Outta nowhere. My 2013 FLEX STARTED "puttering/jerking", feeling like it was trying not to stall. Then, it began to make this loud "grinding" sound.
Intermittent white smoke, burnt oil smell, dark green coolant. May or may not be accompanied by various sounds. Worse in hot humid weather. Minor loss of power on acceleration. Please add estimated repair costs outside warranty and common fixes for blown turbos/seals to this website. Can turbos be purchased and applied other than dealership?
We recently bought a 2010 Ford Flex. When the car is running and you are standing next to it, you feel a lot of heat from the engine that blows on you. It that normal or is there something wrong? We have not experienced this in the past with our other cars.
