Question about 2006 Ford Five Hundred

1 Answer

Surging and Gauges zeroing out during operation

I have a 2006 Ford Five Hundred SE 2wd. Yesterday while in a drive through the vehicle surged forward while I had my foot on the brake then the instrumant panel started to go haywire. Gauges finally dropped all together the came back. Meanwhile the car was still running. A little further down the road the SRS idiot light came on until I got home. Today the car again has surged on me but the gauges have not gone haywire. Any help would be greatly appreaciated.

Thanks,

Kevin

You might want to go to a electrical shop to have your car hooked up and have it tested for either a short or a loose or bad wire or connection.

Where are both cam sensors on a 2006 ford five hundred


The cam position sensors are located in front just below the valve covers. It's a 10 minute replacement, 20 if you do both which I would reccomend if you decide to replace. However, more often than not it's your alternator that's the problem. Your cam pos sensor will cause some surging due to a bad signal.

While driving the speedometer, the brake light and the abs light comes on the speedometer stop working on my 2006 five hundred


I had this same problem with my 2006 Ford Five Hundred. The instrument gauges would all fail and go to zero for a few seconds and then come back on as if nothing happened. During this issue, the reverse lights and "idiot lights" would also come on.

Everyone told me it was bad cluster gauges, so I replaced them and it was not the problem.

There were several cracked/broken wires leading from the main computer of the vehicle to the charging system. The delearship found the broken wires and it cost me $ 190.00 to have it fixed and the car now runs great, no more failure of the gauges.
