computer problems

55

Asked by Sep 25, 2010 at 10:14 PM about the 2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Bought the explorer just over two weeks ago in FL drove it home to NC 2 days later. Less then a week after getting it, it has started to have computer problems. It will reset all dash display info; travel miles, drive time, gas milage, ect... As well as the driver airbag light (from time to time) will stay on or it will go off as it should and then comes back on after a couple of mins. Any ideas of what is happening to our car and/ or any advice on what we should do about contacting the dealer we bought it from?

1 Answer

if you bought it from a dealer,did you buy as is or with a waranity,call them and tell your problems,if computer has been replaced,it needs to be reflashed,or the computer is gone bad,if they dont help you out on this,their is always the lemon law you can fall back on.
