Re: Nav buttons suddenly dead! 2008 FEH

Mine does this kind of stuff all the time. Most of the time simply cycling the key solves the issue, though I have had to remove a battery terminal once or twice to reset it.

Re: My Sync and ipod don't work for 2nd time.

Reset the iPod and it should work fine. Mine does this at least once a month.

I have rented gas Escapes in Hawaii and hauled surfboards and kayaks on...

Re: $1,500 tax credit expiring

Bought an '09 to replace an '06 with 127K on the C4C program (clunked an ancient and ailing Explorer) in mid August. Got the extra $1K incentive from Ford and was under the impression the tax credits...

Re: "Stop Safely Now"

I drove the car about 150 miles today and no issues, yet. I am going to change the relays per the advice from both of you. Do I have to buy these at the dealer, or are they universal like a Bosch or...

Re: "Stop Safely Now"

Please don't tell me that....I just paid $800 today and drove the car home. Took a circuitous route as well and it was fine. I asked them to check the PCM connectors for corrosion like Mark had...

Re: "Stop Safely Now"

I appreciate you trying to help. I talked to the dealer. They replaced the MECS pump, they test drive the car and the problem is still happening.

The codes are P1A10, P2521, P2524 and P0562.

Re: "Stop Safely Now"

I too experienced the "Stop Safely Now" message and the red triangle of death last night on the way home from work. The ICE died at 40MPH on the freeway (this is LA after all) and after safely...

Re: NAVTEQ upgrade

Perhaps you've done this but many nav units have settings for avoiding or favoring certain types of roads. I had an older Kenwood that calculated some very bizarre routes until I got deeper into some...

Re: 88,000 miles on a used FEH. Good or bad idea?

I just rolled over 100K miles and still haven't changed the brake pads. Oil changes and a K&N airfilter is all. I'd be looking for a deal because of the state of the economy, but I wouldn't be afraid...

Re: Hybrid-Experienced Mechanics at Ford Dealers?

I have an '06 that does the same thing and always has. I have always assumed it to be normal. I'd be curious to find out if there is an actual issue.

Re: Would you recommend the Escape?

Labor Day weekend this year I will have owned my FEH for 3 years. I have never owned a better, more reliable vehicle. I have driven it almost 90K miles and have only changed the oil, replaced the...

Re: Considering an FEH here in Southern CA

When buying a Ford product in LA metro area, ALWAYS look at Galpin Motors first. They are perennially the number one Ford dealer in the country. They have inventory and will work with you on the...

Re: New FEH Owner....How do I know I am driving in 'EV'?

My only complaint with my 06 is the fdefroster causing the ICE to run constantly when engaged. I rarely run it on max AC for the same reason. I get why it does it, but it's still a drag.
