Unexpected glare from the instrument panel has the potential to blind you while driving thru winding roads in bright sunlight. The curvature of the lower right and left corners of the panel needs to be made of a non-glare material. I am going to place something in each corner to keep them from reflecting the sun back in anyone's eyes.
The contact owns a 2006 Ford Escape. While driving approximately between 25-35 mph on normal conditions; the brake warning light indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. In an attempt to apply pressure to the brake pedal there was a grinding noise followed by a low power response.

Accelerator pedal is sticking badly and sometimes is very hard to press down. Generally happens when either the engine is cold or the outside air temperature is below 60. It gets so bad at times I have to really stomp on it and that, of course, causes the vehicle to lurch forward.

Why driving the tire pressure indicator light will come on in the dash and the computer will state ?tire pressure sensor fault. ? I have had it into the dealer four times and they have replaced the sensors and still having the same issue. The dealership has told me it has to do with a cell phone charger plugged into the cigarette lighter and setting off the tire pressure indicator on the dash, as well as sending a false signal to the computer. They state there is a Ford bulletin out on it but I can find anything on it. Updated 01-15-08. Updated.
