Question Answered: interior lights won't go off
June 29, 2011, 07:50 PM
I looked up the wiring schematic and found that your door ajar switch is a normally open switch. This means if you unplug or somehow disconnect the switch, it will shut the interior lights off.
Question Answered: can't get car out of park
June 29, 2011, 07:42 PM
The shifter interlock is controlled by the brake light circuit. Make sure your brake lights are operational first. I have seen the brake light switch and the wires leading into the switch fail causing this concern.

Question Answered: "bubbling" noise
June 29, 2011, 07:29 PM
I do not know much about "Blue devil liquid", but a simple block test is in order. This test will detect any hydrocarbons in your cooling system from a cracked or blown headgasket. It is available at most auto parts stores. The bubbling noise you hear I suspect is a symptom of headgasket failure.
Question Answered: air conditioner

First, look at the A/C compressor clutch, does it engage? A very common cause for the A/C clutch for not engaging is the CCRM or constant control relay module. It is located under the air filter housing. A bit of diagnosing from the websites that Superbob suggested may lead you there.
Question Answered: Park lights coming on when hit brake pedal--abs light comes on when turn on lights
June 29, 2011, 07:17 PM
I don't know if this may help, but I have come across a very similar symptom with the front park lights come on when depressing the brakes. It ended up being a double filament bult with the brake light portion shorting out to the tail light portion (inside the bulb). It took a smart old mechanic that knew the cause.
Question Answered: my check advance traction light and awd lock keeps popping up
June 28, 2011, 07:36 PM
Typically, I see a faulty speed sensor inducing the warning lights that you are describing. The only way to know for sure is to perform a diagnostic with a scanner capable of retrieving diagnostic trouble codes from the ABS module.
Question Answered: Loose electrical part
June 28, 2011, 07:29 PM
I tried and failed to find the "electrical part" that you described, but there has to be a loose or poor connection in the circuit. If the component you described is what I think, it is a connector in the ground cable that can be cleaned with electronic cleaner. corrosion can build up inside it.

Problem Reported: Sync Multimedia System Does Not Stay Connected With Phone
April 07, 2011, 07:52 PM
<p><strong></strong>The "Sync" wireless phone system may randomly loose "pairing" with the phone in use. This concern has been addressed with a software update which should be available from any Ford dealership service center at no charge.</p>

My wife says that this is the best vehicle that she has ever owned. Good visability when changing lanes and parking. No major issues. We plan to own this vehicle a long time.
Comment: Car Fluid Leaks: What to Do
January 15, 2011, 02:50 PM
Some fluid leaks are difficult to initially diagnose due to the volume of the mess it causes. In cases such as these, we clean the affected area thoroughly and add a florecent dye. Then we run the engine (or the leaking component) and shine a black light to find where the leak is emmitting.
Comment: Why is my check engine light on?
January 03, 2011, 02:37 PM
One of the most common myths in diagnosing a check engine light is that a DTC or diagnostic trouble code directly condemns a component- NOT true. P0102 for example refers to the mass air flow sensor. The pinpoint test lists 10 different causes/ components that could trigger this light. One could throw a dart and have a chance to be correct (a costly decision) or perform a pinpoint test and repair the vehicle correctly the first time.
