The car involved was a 2010 Ford Fusion. Tried to start vehicle after filling up on gas, already had about 1/4 tank prior to fill up, recently driving for several miles (car is warmed up fully) and it immediately stalled. This had never happened to me, and it occurred to me that just before the gas fill up I noticed somewhat rough engine response in a very short drive from across the street. I've read that there are issue with throttle body faults on Fusion and escape that do not log under normal odb 2 codes after turning engine off. I never saw the check engine light come on.

Check Engine Light On problem #5
The car involved was a 2010 Ford Fusion. While driving vehicle the speed became to rapidly decrease while the check engine light came on and the car begin shake and sputter. Tried driving again and realized that I was fine as long as I did not go over 40mph. Had to have me car towed home because of the distance between my job and home. Called around, had the code read on the car and it was a "p2112" error code which pointed to the throttle body failure. Contacted Ford and was told that although this is a known issue, I would have to pay for my own part-labor. Paying $445 on tomorrow to have the car repaired. I just purchased the car in January 2013, and me paying for repairs on tomorrow means that I cannot pay my car note. This is horrible since the representative at Ford customer assistance stated that this is a known issue. I've seen multiple posts online regarding the same thing. This is also a safety hazzard, had I been going faster on the interstate (I had not made it on yet when the issue first started) myself or someone else could've been seriously injured or killed because of the sudden stop. It was Oct. 9, 2013 when this check engine light on issue happened.
Check Engine Light On problem #6
The car involved is a 2010 Ford Fusion. Driving at highway speed when vehicle died, having complete loss of power. Wrench light and check engine light both came on. There was no shoulder to pull over onto and many large 18 wheelers driving by. I pulled over in someones driveway, turned the vehicle completely off, inspected under the hood and around the vehicle with no findings, and then attempted to restart. The vehicle restarted but had difficulty turning over. I continued to drive for approx 5 more miles when the incident occurred a second time. On the second time the vehicle had loss of power but the engine remained running. There was no throttle response, from depressing the gas pedal. Once I pulled over on the shoulder the engine began rocking the car violently. I immediately turned off the vehicle and let it rest for 5 minutes. I restarted the car once again, this time without difficulty and drove it straight to an auto shop. The mechanic performing work on the car states the error code was p2111 and was the throttle body causing the problem. The failure date was Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013.
Check Engine Light On problem #7
The vehicle was a 2010 Ford Fusion. I was driving on a highway going about 40 and the car stalled and lost all power with no response to pressing the pedal. It was idling very rough and the wrench light and check engine light came on. I shut the car off and restarted and it seemed fine until I got on the interstate. While driving on the interstate it stalled around 15 times in 20 miles. It stalled going 75 mph a few times and also stalled countless times in traffic when I was stopped and tried to accelerate. This was very scary and is an extremely dangerous issue. On the way home I experienced the same problem and rode with my hazards on in fear of being rear-ended. The failure date was Thursday, June 20, 2013.

Check Engine Light On problem #9
The car involved is a 2010 Ford Fusion. The car stalled in the middle of airport traffic. The wrench light came on and the check engine light. It occured again on the FL turnpike travelling at 75 mph. We no longer drive on the highways and it has happened 3 more times. Research says it is the throttle position sensor, and the only fix is to replace the throttle body. The failure date was September 19, 2013.
Check Engine Light On problem #10
The car was a 2010 Ford Fusion. It first started on the highway doing 75mph. My car jerked and wouldn't accelerate and the wrench light came on. I pulled over and shut off my car, turned it back on and it worked fine for about a month. Now it happens much more frequently, it goes about 100 feet before repeating but now my check engine light is on, the wrench light comes on, and my cars shakes when I stop and pull over. I got the code checked and it says it's the throttle body plate getting stuck, I have tried cleaning it already with throttle body cleaner and it hasn't helped at all. I have seen many posts about this happening. Not safe to drive when my car shuts down in the middle of a highway or road. This problem occurred on 08/08/2013.

Check Engine Light On problem #14
The car is a 2010 Ford Fusion. The VIN of the car is 3FAHP0HA3A_. I was traveling on a two-lane paved road in a 50 mile an hour zone when I felt the car start to decelerate. I pushed on the gas pedal but nothing happened and the car continued to slow down. I was able to pull over at the intersection of a side road where I shut the car off. I started the car back up and proceeded out into the main road. Less than a mile down the road the car started to decelerate again and I turned onto my street and coasted to a stop. Both times the check engine light and the wrench icon on the dash came on. When I had the cause of the check engine light diagnosed, I found out that the car's throttle body had failed. I could only order the part through a Ford dealership and the closest one is 40 minutes away from me. This check engine light on problem happened on Sun., Sep. 1, 2013.
Check Engine Light On problem #15
The vehicle involved was a 2010 Ford Fusion. The VIN of this Fusion is 3FAHP0JG1A_. While accelerating heard a clunk and lost all power to the transmission and throttle. Throttle light came on, car ran rough. Had to coast to the side of the road. Turned car off and back on. Car ran fine, light went off and I continued home. Now it happened again last week while going 65 on the interstate. Same scenario. It happened again yesterday and twice this morning. Cruise was set the last 3 times, going 68 on the interstate. Last time in addition to the throttle warning light the check engine light came on and stayed on even after restarting. This could have been bad on the interstate, but there wasn't much traffic. It is now at the shop waiting on the verdict. It was Thursday, August 15, 2013 when this check engine light on issue occurred.

Check Engine Light On problem #17
The vehicle was a 2010 Ford Fusion. Going on the highway at 70 mph, engine just dies on me, forcing me to pull over, it looses all power but it goes to a very low rpm's for a while, engine shakes and after a couple of minutes just turn off, I turn it back on and it runs like nothing happened. I was out of time approximately 200 miles away from home, this condition happened to me for about 15 times in a 100 miles range. Some times it takes place just after leaving a parking lot, some other times at 20 mph so it is very unpredictible but at the same time pretty dangerous. Every once on a while check engine light goes off, then it is not there. This issue happened on Tuesday, August 6, 2013.
Check Engine Light On problem #18
VIN of the vehicle was 3FAHP0HG7A_. I purchased my 2010 Ford Fusion in April of 2012 and have had many incidents of the “check fuel inlet” message after filling up. Sometimes it will trigger the check engine light to illuminate. I have had a diagnostic test ran when this has occurred and was told it was that the gas flap didn’t seal properly when I removed the fuel nozzle. This again occurred on Aug. 17, 2013 but the car was running fine. Then on Aug. 22 I had 3 incidents within 30 minutes of each other. The first incident was while traveling on the highway at approximately 65 mph the wrench warning light came on and the vehicle lost all power. I managed to get the vehicle to the shoulder of the road. I turned the vehicle off and restarted it and was able to travel the next 4 miles with some sputtering and racing of the engine. The second incident I was pulling away from the curb trying to accelerate. The wrench warning light came back on and the vehicle had no power. The third incident I was traveling approximately 20 mph when the engine again lost power and the wrench warning light came on. After researching this issue it seems to be a common occurrence and should become a recall by Ford motor company. This check engine light on issue occurred Aug. 22, 2013.

Check Engine Light On problem #20
The car was a 2010 Ford Fusion. I was driving 35-40 mph when all of a sudden my vehicle slowed, started shaking, the wrench light came on and my gas pedal would not respond. I pulled over, turned my car off, waited for a moment then turned it back on. The check engine light was on but it seemed fine so I decided to continue my drive toward home. 10 minutes later, as I was getting off the highway at 55 mph in rush hour traffic, the car suddenly started shaking, slowed to limp mode and my gas pedal became unresponsive. I continued in limp mode trying to get off the highway and pulled into a business parking lot. This happened several more times as we drove in the parking lot trying to diagnose the problem - once even coming to a complete stop. We used a code scanner, but no codes were being set. We suspect the throttle body but local dealer has none and we r told it is "deep back ordered". Not only do I now have no car to drive, but it is extremely dangerous!. This issue happened on 08/08/13.

Check Engine Light On problem #22
The vehicle having this issue was a 2010 Ford Fusion. The steering wheel starting shaking as the car lost power and eventually completely stalled. After several minutes it started but we didn't even get a mile further before the same thing happened again. As this was happening the check engine light came on and a little wrench lamp lit up on the instrument panel. After about 20 minutes we were able to start the car again and drive it to a Ford dealership several miles away where they replaced the throttle body 4 days later. It took them that long to get the part in because they had trouble finding one since so many other people were having the same problem. The failure date was Friday, July 19, 2013.
