The power steering is controlled by an electric motor and not the normal belt driven pump ... So it's gonna be an issue with the electric pump on the steering rack

SOURCE: My air bag light on my 2000 Ford Econoline van

Seems to be a very common problem with Ford. The wiring harness beneath the drivers seat contains the sensors for the airbag system. Go under the drivers seat and secure all the wires and clips. This makes most error lights for the airbags go away. Hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: Ford Fusion 04 Engine Management Light

I had a 2002 model 1.4 Fiesta, same problem Engine management light or ECA, electronic accelaration Control (EAC), it needs a ford dealer to do a computer diagnostic, most likely that it will need replaced.

Mt friend who is a mechanic for ford said that it was a common factory fault and is very common in 1.4 zetec /duratec petrol models.

I now have a 2007 Fusion and was quick to see if this problem had been sorted on this model, and it has!!

Hope this helps!!

2005 Ford Focus L4-2.0L VIN N Hello your vehicle has a timing chain, you do not have to replace it ever... It was designed to last the life of the vehicle, unless you have a water pump, or a timing pulley or even a timing tensioner go bad, that is when you would service the timing chain. I added what your vehicle needs at it's 90,000mile service below, hope this helps... (subytech1)

2010 ford fusion hyprid power steering went out


Power Steering - Hybrid The electric power assist steering system consists of:
  • power steering control module
  • electric motor
  • torque sensor
  • rack-and-pinion steering gear
The electric power steering system provides power steering assist to the driver by replacing the conventional hydraulic valve system with an electric motor coupled to the steering gear. The motor is controlled by an electronic control unit that senses the steering effort through the use of a torque sensor mounted between the steering column shaft and the steering gear. Steering assist is provided in proportion to the steering input effort and vehicle speed.

your best bet would be to have the ford dealer check it out !

How do I find the fuse I have to replace to get the radio to work in a 2012 ford Fusion SE.


I guess I'm too slow, the others beat me to it. I'm old and I'm slow.
The two fuses on the left goes to audio control module. I hope it's a fuse issue, but, I don't usually get that lucky.

This had been an intermittent problem on my 2012 Fusion, but the other day it became permanent. I have since discovered that the Fusion has electronic power steering, that this problem is caused by a bad module, and that the fix involves replacing the entire rack and pinion system.

My steering wheel in my 2008 Ford Fusion SE has been locking up when I'm driving. The Ford place said that that year model does not have a steering wheel lock. Is this correct?


I don't know for a fact but this seems very odd to me that your vehicle would not have a steering wheel lock. Further, it is more odd that the wheel would lock unexpectedly while driving. Obviously, you cannot drive it in this condition. I recommend you take the car to the Ford Dealer and have them repair it even if it means replacing the steering column. You certainly don't want the thing locking up while you are driving ... all sorts of terrible pictures come to my mind ... running into oncoming traffic ... off the right hand side of the road ... off the bridge into the valley below ... into a group of chldren waiting for the bus ...

Please get this fixed as soon as you can.
