First of all my car is my DD.....ok well I had to goto a meeting up in VA today and drove the car up there last night. Well today on the drive home it was raining decent. Well after the 3 hr drive I finally make it back to Fayetteville NC and all of a sudden I get all kinds of Bells and whistles from the gauge cluster.

 

 

Check Traction control / Service

 

Low Brake Fluid level

 

Traction Control turned off and wouldn't not allow it to be back on....

 

Head straight to the dealership. Of course all the warning lights go away and then come back on then away again.

 

So the dealership ran the computer and had 3 codes stored.

 

Low Brake Level

 

Low Voltage

 

and Something bad circuit.

 

I was told that the earlier body styles had problems with water getting in somewhere underneath the passenger dash. So he checks up there and BAM his finger hits water. Not much but enough.

 

Well now the car goes back Monday to have them go threw it thoroughly. Hopefully its not that big of a project.....

 

 

 

 

DAMN I NEED TO FIND A NEW DD NOW ^^

Water in the dash? You driving a convertible with the top down in the rain?

I would not be happy. You should get a rental on their dime for the time yours is in the shop. How is Ford going to correct this?

well drove it today no codes thrown...But now everytime I start the car I hear about 5 clicks coming from the dash some where.....Any ideas?

 

im not a gearhead,but i know in older cars a click meant the solenoid was trying to start,but the starter wouldnt go--but that noise would come from the engine,not the dash
