Question about 2005 Ford Five Hundred

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Ford Five Hundred and it seems to be holding water somewhere near both back doors. I can hear it sloshing around when I am driving? Also sometimes when I open one of those doors, water comes spilling out to the ground. Why is it happening and is it bad? If it is bad, can I fix it?

Well, I would look for the drainage holes in the door near the bottom where water should come out, eliminating this problem.
Sometimes the holes get plugged up with dirt or debris such as grass or pine needles depending on what falls on the car when it is parked.

If one clears the drainage holes, that is probably a good solution for the problem.

    I have this problem with the rear doors too. There's a rubber pad at the bottom of the door, and it's held in with plastic pegs that go into holes in the door. I pulled out a peg with pliers and water came pouring out!

    Ok, I thought I was losing my mind. I inherited my Dad's 2006 Ford Five Hundred, and noticed some sloshing noise like liquid. I could not find the source until one day I seen a water trail from the left side middle of driver and passenger doors. I opened the back left passenger door and shook it, sure enough water. I fumbled around the seals and bingo, water came out like crazy. Thank Goodness for Forums like this.

I have a 2005 Ford Five Hundred and the ''wrench'' warning light came on. It is a AWD. What does it mean and what could the probable cause be?


It simply means that its time for routing service and maintenance on your car. This will normally be reset when you take it in for an oil change. 1. Ford has issued a Special Service Message (SSM), stating that the owner's manual procedure is incorrect, and giving a revised procedure. The following is the text of the SSM:

18562 2005 FREESTYLE/FIVE HUNDRED/MONTEGO - OIL LIFE RESET PROCEDURE
THE 2005 FREESTYLE, FIVE HUNDRED, AND MONTEGO VEHICLE OWNER'S GUIDE OIL LIFE RESET PROCEDURE IS INCORRECT. TO RESET OIL LIFE ON VEHICLES WITHOUT MESSAGE CENTER, USE THE TRIP/RESET BUTTON TO TOGGLE THE ODOMETER DISPLAY TO 'OIL LIFE XX%'. THEN PRESS AND HOLD THE BUTTON FOR 10 SECONDS TO RESET TO 100%. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WILL BEEP WHEN THE OIL LIFE IS RESET.
FOR VEHICLES WITH A MESSAGE CENTER, PRESS 'SETUP' TO DISPLAY 'PRESS RESET FOR SYS CHECK'. PRESS AND RELEASE 'RESET' TO START SYSTEM CHECK. WHILE 'OIL LIFE XX%' IS DISPLAYED, PRESS AND HOLD 'RESET' UNTIL 'IF NEW OIL HOLD RESET' IS DISPLAYED, THEN RELEASE. PRESS AND HOLD 'RESET' AGAIN UNTIL 'OIL LIFE SET TO 100%' IS DISPLAYED. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WILL BEEP WHEN THE OIL LIFE IS RESET.

I can hear water sloshing around in the drivers side door


If the sound seems like its in the door but is actually coming from the air vents near the door it may be a faulty heater core.

Appears that there is water somewhere in the back portion of the vehicle. When turning a corner can hear water flowing. Have had gas tank full & low, same noises. Could water be trapped in the frame?...


I'm guessing it's a door. There should be drain holes in the bottom to let any water out, but they get plugged up. Open the doors quickly, and while open, yank the door back and forth to see if you hear the water sloshing around. It should be relatively easy to figure which door it is if you can hear it while driving. If you can't find it in the doors, check the lower quarter panels in the cargo area of the vehicle. If the spare is stowed under the floor, pull the panel covering it and check there too. Let me know where you find your lake.

HOW DO YOU GET THE DOOR CODE FOR A FORD FIVE HUNDRED IF YOU WERE NOT GIVEN IT UPON PURCHASE?


OK, I found my code. Under the dash on the driver's side is the fuse box, it should be over your left foot. On the BACK side of the fusebox is the Smart Junction Box, and the 5-digit code is printed on it very plainly (too bad the fuse box is in the way). It's possible to remove the three nuts holding the fusebox down and turn it around, but there are so many wires holding it in place that it's nearly impossible. What I did was to get out my digital camera, put it in close-up macro mode, and worm it in behind the steering column, aimed at the back of the fusebox. I took about 20 pictures of the back of the fusebox, and one of the pictures showed the code.

2005 Ford Five Hundred engine sputtering


Dear anew32, Wed 2-11-2009 3:43am EST (USA)

Do you often run your gas tank to near empty?
If so.......
This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling and rough riding!
Try spraying a can of starter fluid in the air intake and see if it runs! If it does, it's most likely bad fuel or clogged injectors so....
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!
Good Luck!
