For a while now I have been experiencing after rain - water flowing through the passenger side firewall and along the passenger side kick board where the Smart conjunction box (fuse box) is. I have taken it to a Ford dealer who said he didn't know what I was talking about and would be $95. 00 to start looking in to what the problem is. This past Saturday, I parked my vehicle the key was stuck in the ignition and the car will not shift out of park. After searching online it seems this issue can be directly related to water damage. Water seeping in to the fuse box. I also found online where there are a number of model years that have had this issue. Now I am going to be stuck with a gigantic repair bill for a design flaw that Ford knows about and could of issued a recall for.

This 2005 Mustang was bought used about a year and a half ago. Within a few months we noticed the messenger side floor would be wet when it rained. Soon after the speedometer quit working. The extended warranty did not cover the repair. A few months later the heat and air control unit went out. These two repairs cost over a thousand dollars to fix. On October 102015 while at the drive up teller at a bank the car would not come out of park. Tried shutting it off but would not restart. Seemed to have complete electrical failure. No lights gauges or anything electrical would work. It was raining. After jumping the car several times we were able to get it home. We inspected the ecu and found green and white corrosion indicating water had been getting inside the box. When I called Ford they took a report but said they would not fix the problem unless there was a recall. There is a technical service bulletin issued TSB 07-14-6.

With no warning the electronic throttle body will fail causing the car to rapidly decelerate to its idle speed. In my case it happened on a city street in heavy traffic while the car was in motion. The motorist behind me almost rear-ended my car, and several other had to come to a screeching halt. The problem is dangerous, since it can occur at any time in traffic. It continued to happen after turning the engine off and back on. Since the issue is known in other Ford vehicles of the same model year range, the company should be communicating the issue to customers and proactively replacing the faulty part.
I was driving in the expressway at 60 mph when suddenly my car lost power on the acceleration. A wrench tool appear and the dashboard on the rpm clock . . . At that moment the car desaccelerate almost to 30 mph and I was unable to gain speed. I went to a side of the road, turn it off and restarted the car. Everything appear to be normal but the first thing I did was go to the dealer. They run a test on it and told me that the problem was related to the electeic throttle body. I dont understand how is possible to happend something like that when my car barely has 4 years. There is no warranty on ot and the repair for it is really expensive.

The airbags could deploy at an inappropriate time or not at all due to this problem the air bag blinks all the time and the manufacturer has no answers so I am red flagging this problem thank you.
Driving down an interstate a wrench came on the dashboard and car went into limp mode. Pulled off turned the car off and restarted it. Got to the destination ok but on the way back home the wrench came on again. Looked at the code and saw it was the p2111 code. It happened 4 times in the way, losing power and shaking. Taking it to Ford tomorrow to find out if it covered under the warranty. There was no recall in the car,however, I am noticing a lot of people are having this issue. This is a safety issue and should have a recall on it. From what everyone else is saying Ford is not doing anything to help or fix the problem.

I am the owner of a 2015 Mustang gt with cooled seat option. When I purchased the car new in November of 2014 and tried the cooled seats they worked well during those cold late fall days for the handful of times I used it. After it got cold during winter and spring I did not use the cooled seat feature again until approximately may 1, 2015. At this time the lower seat cooler would cool the seat but the upper seat cooler would not cool the seat for any amount of time. In fact quite the opposite occurred. With the seat cooling set to maximum of 3 bars the lower cooler would get the seat cold but the upper seat cooler would actually warm the seat up. Several tests confirmed this happening for both seats, driver and passenger. Due to the design of the thermoelectric device buried and enclosed in the seat back, the back side of each seat back would actually warm as well to levels very hot to touch after as short of time of 5 minutes of use. It appears that many other 2015 Mustang owners with this option are experiencing the same issues. Also 2015 Ford f150 owners who have the same design ted cooling device are experiencing this as well. I have contacted Ford customer service and registered my complaint but no fix is out there currently from Ford this is obviously a faulty design. Its equivalent would be putting a room air conditioner inside a room and expecting it to cool the air. On top of that with prolonged usage the material on the back of the seat where the ted vents its waste heat gets hotter and hotter and could pose a fire risk with prolonged usage in the vehicle. Currently we have no information whether or not Ford is either aware or even has any intention of addressing this issue I do not use my cooled seats function currently because it only works on the bottoms and heats us the upper seat while in use. The upper seat will actually be cooler if left off.

Driving up hill going about 20. Orange wrench icon comes on and I lose all acceleration. Had to pull over going up a hill losing acceleration fast when cars are parked on the side of the road. Barely made it to a turn and parked my car. Had to turn the car off and wait a minute and turn it back on. Turned around and went home. Called Ford dealership and asked what could be the issue. The mechanic said it could be one of two things. Took the car in to get a dtc code and they couldn't find it. The mechanic said it was safe to drive. 4 days later the same thing happened going 60. Had to pull over and restart the ignition. Almost got rear ended. Took it to the dealer again. No code. They tell me it is safe to drive still. Three days later it happens again on the same road going 60. Certain part of this road have no place to pull over. Have to drift my car for a bit to get to a safe area. Almost get rear ended. Call dealership. They tell me the earliest they can see me is one week away. This morning on the way to work it craps out on me 5 times in 20 minutes. Luckily it was 5 am and there were few people on the road. I do the same thing and restart the car. I used my tuner this time and got a code of p2111 - throttle body actuator code. I know this has been an issue with other Fords as well and checking the message boards for the Mustangs and I have seen quite a few of these incidents, but I did not see where the NHTSA was looking at the Mustangs. Maybe this should be looked into before a lawsuit happens because of this? this car is not safe to drive no matter what they tell me. I will call the dealership this morning and give them the code so they can finally fix my car.
Upon approaching a red light with the clutch pedal pressed down, and manual trans in neutral the engine died. Also had "run power on" on the dash. Bumped the start button and it started right up. Description of electrical issues: temps outside were mid 80's. (car was still cold engine wise and I had the a/c on full blast when it died. ) dash board information/touch screen readout said it was 70 degrees outside while temps were in the mid 80's. And as I was driving, (city traffic) I would shift at or around 2500 rpm. When I pressed in the clutch to shift the rpm's would jump about 1000 rpm's until I let the clutch out. This occurred about three or four times out of ten to fifteen shifts. About 3 miles up the road I pulled over, shut the car off and opened the door to turn off the stereo and touch screen. Cranked it up and right away the outside temp reading was the actual 85 degrees. No more revs on shift and ran fine all the way home for the next 15 miles. Reporting this due to multiple issues of this being reported by other 2015 Mustang owners on social media and Mustang related websites.
I had just finished fueling up my car and when I got in to start it up I heard a pop and hissing sound. . . . When I checked it had blown another spark plug and coil out of cylinder 7. . . . It blew one out of cylinder 8 and I had it fixed now cylinder 7 did it. . . . Its obviously common for the 4. 6 motor to do this and I don't find it right that us owners have to constantly fix these problems when its Ford's fault for making this motor.

Speedometer not functioning. While driving 30mph will register as 50mph or while driving 60pmh will register as 120mph. Emissions trouble light will periodically go on.
This is the second time this has happened. Upon starting the car, the motor revs uncontrolled to about 7000 rpms. I have to turn ignition off to stop the motor from damaging its self. If my foot was to ever slip off the clutch, we would race uncontrolled in reverse! the car is always parked and started while in reverse. Almost afraid to start this car.

I emailed the following to Ford on 2/9/2015 with no response to date from them hello, I don't know who to contact or how to get my point to the right person, I am hoping you will make someone take notice. I rented a 2015 Mustang while on vacation in January. I was driving on the highway when my knee hit the keys ( rental cars always have the extra keys and info tag making it bulky anyway ). The keys turned the ignition to accessory and the vehicle shut off in the middle of the highway in traffic at 70 mph. After the news reports of the other ignition recall that I have seen on abc and my first response training, I stayed calm and was able to get the vehicle off the road without incident. I would just like to make sure Ford knows about this and something is done before anyone gets hurt. I notified the rental company of the issue. Please investigate this issue and let me know that you have at least read my message. I would just like to make sure noone gets hurt and the issue is at least duplicated and investigated. Thank you.
