Unknown Electrical issue 2011 Ford Taurus
I have a 2011 Ford Taurus. I have been having electrical problems with it since i bought it. What happens is while driving randomly the dash sensors all go off(e-brake, traction, door/trunk open, low tire pressure),also the radio shuts off and so does the air system(heat/AC), and none of my sterring wheel controls work. But everytime i bring it to the dealer it stops doing it and they tell me nothing is wrong with it and it shows no codes when plugged in, even though i have shown video of it happening. has anyone ever heard of this happening and what was the issue?
I hope you didn't pay much for a diagnosis. There shouldn't be any codes. In my opinion, they should have checked all power and ground connections - especially at the battery, Block and Starter. With a concern like this, you'll need a mechanic that you can trust (not the shop but the mechanic him/herself). You should be willing and prepared to leave your car for several days and allow the Mechanic to drive the vehicle home, to the store or under whatever circumstances the problem occurs. Be prepared to pay a significant amount of money. Yours is not an easy fix.
I am experiencing the exact same problem as SeanMcRae. and the problem just started this evening. trunk, door and tire sensors appear while radio and air shut off then back on after a short period. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Yes I have one and they know it was a electrical problem when I purshase it and didn't bother to tell me now they want do anything about it it's a. $10,000 car and they knew it.
Same issues. Anyone get a fix yet?
Did you find the problem
Having the same problem. Had anyone figured out what it is? I have a 2011 Taurus too.
So there was a recall on the 2011 Taurus for the rear license plate light wire for corrosion, after I had it replaced 2 years ago I haven’t had the problem since. Hope this helps
