#3 - Transmission Solenoid problem of the 2006 Ford F-150
The car is a 2006 Ford F-150. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1FTPW14526_. I drive a 2006 Ford f150. In July 2007 I started hearing a grinding noise coming from my front wheels. I brought it to holman Ford in turnersville new jersey. They replaced auto 4wd vacuum solenoid. Now 15 months later the noise is back and they said their parts and labor warranty is only good for 12 months. I know other people who had the same problem but they said there is no recall. It is obvious there is a defect. This issue happened on July 5, 2007.
#4 - Transmission Solenoid problem of the 2005 Ford F-150
The vehicle involved is a 2005 Ford F-150. The contact stated that she heard a grinding noise while driving at any speed. The noise was heard intermittenly. The dealer could not duplicate the failure. The vehicle later locked into 4-wheel drive while driving less than 55 mph. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they found that the solenoid and the switch for the 4-wheel drive were defective. The contact paid $185 to have the vehicle repaired. The dealer was unsure if the repair would correct the failure because the electrical switch was susceptible to water damage. The current and failure mileages were less than 37,217. Updated 08/11/09. It was Wednesday, December 10, 2008 when this transmission solenoid issue happened.

#5 - Transmission Solenoid problem of the 2004 Ford F-150
2004 Ford F-150: the transmission will not shift out of 4wd when driving. It will however shift into neutral. The failure was caused by the solenoids which can get wet and short out ruining the actuators. This is a part which Ford knows is defective, because they have created a new part. They currently have a TSB out on this issue. In April of 2006 they started putting water guards on the solenoids to ensure this won't happen. Having a transmission that will not engage properly is a safety hazard. It was Apr. 1, 2010 when this transmission solenoid issue occurred.
