The contact stated the inside of the passenger door caught fire due to wires melting locking module. The contact replaced the plug, but the failure recurred. Upon further inspection, he noticed that the wires were fractured. Hope some one can help or assist us in fixing this issue not just for our family but for others too. I have taken my car in to be repaired a total of three times this year alone and the last time , about four or five weeks ago I instructed the worker to just let the windows up and disconnect them after being told that I needed a complete new wiring harness which were no longer available.
The shattering occurred while driving between 30-40 mph, the temperate while cool around 45 degrees. My interior lights started coming on also when I would turn on my headlights, everyone knows you shouldn't have the interior lights on while driving at night anyway. People were honking their horns and my daughter missed classes. This past Friday I noticed power was still going to my truck when it was turned off. My concern is that a shattering window poses a huge safety issue and Ford should be held accountable for their failure to keep their customers and more importantly the children of those customers safe!. Original harness was replaced by dealer in 2013.
I'm truely not safe using my e-brake as I'm not sure if it is working or not. The approximate failure mileage was 120,000. I was driving with no other cars around as there must be a short or faulty wiring in the rear defrost. No warning lights appear on dash to warn of this. The consumer stated at some point when his vehicle was being serviced at the dealer, a cover was removed from the far left wiring harness at the pcm, which permitted water to run down the inside of the wiring harness and shorted out the connector. Ford knows there is a problem because they have changed the design on the window along with the wiring to the window.
After approximately five minutes, the vehicle was restarted and operated normally. If it had not been found at 3:00 am it would have most likely kill two people in their beds. After closing all doors repeadtly, the driver side door light says its still ajar. The windows stopped working a total of six times with three of those being this year. They said that the wiring was at fault and replaced the defective part. A 3rd Ford dealership was unable to diagnose exact problem but suggested replacement of coils followed by wiring as a possible fix to the misfire.
It was like you ran into a wall. My daughter's car seat is directly under that window! This constitutes a safety hazard as no notice occurs before burn up. This happens when you are sitting in the truck, driving, or when you go to start it up. While conducting my research I have found out water is leaking through the windshield the rear window and wiring harness that travels through the firewall. This is a known issue that several people have reported. I have read thru some forums and it seems that people have called the Ford dealership and the service department claimed they have never heard of this problem, but can work on it if they bring it in.
Everyday we deal with this problems multiple times a day. About 30 days after having it fixed. I think this needs to be looked into and a recall should go out. This problem occurred eight additional times. While driving and making a left turn, the vehicle inadvertently stalled. I do not have any pictures of mine I changed over the weekend but there is plenty on line that is how we found why my truck would not start.
I had it repaired at a local dealership crain Ford, little rock, Arkansas 501-570-3737 which involved moving the fuse to a different spot. They stated we needed a new battery, which we had tested as well as the alternator and nothing wrong there either. The check engine light was on. Ford needs to recall and fix this. There was no impact on the window are clue to why it shattered.
The tilt steering mechanism and short wiring has caused the connection to break inside the steering column trim on our vehicle, which caused the lights to stop functioning properly. I removed the vehicle to a dry climate and replaced all plugs, coils, and boots for testing. This has been happening for approx. The dealership suggested that we use a higher octane fuel and said they could not find anything wrong with it. The contact stated that the rear driver's and passenger side doors were closed. The engine began to misfire and the check engine light illuminated.
