FORD CONTOUR Interior Lighting

FORD CONTOUR 1999 Interior Lighting Report #714235

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on Oct 27, 1999.FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with INTERIOR LIGHTING . I RECENTLY RENTED A 1999 MERCURY CONTOUR AND DROVE IT THROUGH RURAL WESTERN MASS, VERMONT AND NEW HAMPSHIRE BETWEEN DUSK AND DARK, ON INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS. JUST AFTER DUSK I STOPPED TO REFUEL THE CAR. AT THAT POINT THE OVERHEAD DOME LIGHT TURNED ON, AND WOULD NOT TURN OFF. I DROVE TO THE NEXT REST AREA AND STOPPED TO READ THE OWNER'S MANUAL. IT PROVIDED NO USEFUL INFORMATION ON TURNING OFF THE LIGHT. HOWEVER, WHILE I WAS ALONE IN THE REST AREA READING THE MANUAL IN A CAR LIT UP LIKE A SPOTLIGHT(AND I AM FEMALE), A STRANGE MAN APPROACHED MY CAR FROM BEHIND WITH WHAT I ASSUME WERE BAD INTENTIONS. I THEN DROVE ANOTHER 50 MILES TO A TOTAL OF 7 GAS STATIONS BEFORE I FOUND ONE WITH AN ATTENDANT. HE ALSO HAD NO IDEA HOW TO TURN OFF THE DOME LIGHT. I THEN HAD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN SPENDING THE NIGHT IN A RENTAL CAR IN A PARKING LIGHT NEAR THE INTERSTATE, OR DRIVNG HOME WITH A LIT DOME LIGHT AND CLOSE TO ZERO VISIBILITY. AS MY LIFE INSURANCE IS PAID UP, I CHOSE OPTION (B.) AND DROVE HOME. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT NHTSA SHOULD REQUIRE CAR MANUFACTURERS, AND ESPECIALLY THIS CAR MANUFACTURER, TO SUPPLY ALL INTERIOR LIGHTS WITH A POSITIVE ON-OFF SWITCH. EITHER THAT, OR SUPPLY LARGE SLEDGE HAMMERS AND A PROMISE OF INDEMNITY FROM CAR RENTAL AGENCIES. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU WILL DO ABOUT THIS UNSAFE DESIGN FLAW..Ford Contour 1999 problem was reported in WARNER, NH. Original Owner. Vehicle was purchased on 19990101.

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on .FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:ALTERNATOR/GENERATOR/REGULATOR . MY VEHICLE HAS A DESIGN FLAW. THE VEHICLES STALLS AFTER SPLASHING THROUGH WATER. ONLY 1-2 INCHES ARE NECESSARY TO CAUSE A STALL. ALSO, THE VEHICLE STALL WHEN TURNING IN THE RAIN. THE ENGINE WILL SQUEAL, THE ALTERNATOR LIGHT WILL COME ON, AND THE VEHICLE WILL BECOME VERY DIFFICULT TO STOP AND STEER DUE TO LOSS OF ELECTRICAL POWER. THIS PROBLEM WAS IDENTIFED IN FORD'S TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN # TSB 97-11-2. THIS DESIGN FLAW IS ONLY SUPPOSED TO AFFECT 1995-1998 CONTOURS. HOWEVER, IT MUST BE NOTED THAT MY CONTOUR IS AN EARLY 1999 (MANUFACTURED IN SEPTEMBER 1998). THE TSB DESCRIBES THAT THE VEHICLES NEEDS TO HAVE A SPLASH GUARD INSTALLED. REPEATED REQUESTS TO FORD MOTOR COMPANY HAVE NOT LEAD TO ANY ACTION BEING TAKEN. I BELIEVE THAT MY VEHICLE IS DANGEROUS TO DRIVE THROUGH ANY AMOUNT OF ACCUMULATED WATER. ITS TENDENCY TO STALL FORCES ME TO DRIVE THROUGH PUDDLES VERY SLOWLY WHICH CREATES A DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR VEHICLES AROUND ME. I BELIEVE THAT FORD SHOULD FIX THIS DESIGN DEFECT FREE OF CHARGE (LABOR AND PARTS). I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY ASSISTANCE THAT YOUR AGENCY COULD PROVIDE..Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP66L9XK. Ford Contour 1999 problem was reported in RALEIGH, NC. Original Owner.

WITHIN 6 MONTHS OF THE PURCHASE OF MY VEHICLE, THE CAR STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS WITH VIBRATIONS, SHAKING, AND SEVERE NOISE WHILE DRIVING. THE ENGINE IDLED ROUGH AND GOT MORE SEVERE WHEN THE HEATING OR COOLING SYSTEM WAS USED. ALL TIRES HAVE BEEN REPLACED, A MAJOR BRAKE JOB WITH ROTORS TURNED WAS COMPLETED, AND THE STRUTS WERE REPLACED. REGARDLESS OF THIS WORK, THE SHAKING IN THE CAR HAS GOTTEN PROGRESSIVELY WORSE. I HAVE TAKEN MY CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP FIVE TIMES FOR THE SAME PROBLEMS. THEY HAVE EITHER SAID THAT IT WAS "NORMAL CONTOUR" OR THAT IT WAS THE TIRES. FINALLY, THEY INDICATE THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM BUT THEY CANNOT DETERMINE WHAT IT IS. MY CAR MAKES A THUMPING NOISE AND A SQUEALING NOISE WHEN I MAKE SLOW RIGHT TURNS. ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS MY FOOT HAS BEEN ON THE BRAKE PEDAL AND MY CAR SURGED FORWARD. AT ONE POINT I THOUGHT THAT THE PERSON BEHIND ME HAD HIT ME BECAUSE THE CAR JERKED SO HARD AND SO UNEXPECTEDLY. AGAIN, I AM TOLD THAT THIS IS NORMAL.

FORD CONTOUR 1999 Service Brakes, Hydraulic Report #10016462

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on Apr 07, 2003.FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . 1999 FORD CONTOUR W/ 2 LIT. ENGINE AND FACTORY INSTALLED/AUTHORIZED 8" BRAKE SYSTEM. SAFETY HAZARD: POTENTIAL LOSS OF CONTROL DUE TO IMPROPERLY DESIGNED AND/OR FACTORY INSTALLED BRAKES. TRYING TO STEER THE CAR THROUGH EVASIVE MANEUVERS WHILE APPLYING BRAKES IS CAUSING THE CAR TO SHUDDER EXCESSIVELY. ON APX APRIL 7 I WAS IN THE LEFT LANE TRAVELING NORTHBOUND ON I-71 APX 1 MILE NORTH OF I-270. ACCIDENT APX 1/4 OF A MILE AHEAD FORCED EVERYONE TO SLAM ON BRAKES. CAR BEGAN TO SHUDDER EXCESSIVELY. HAD ANOTHER CAR CLOSE ON MY TAIL AND BEGAN TO POSITION MYSELF TO THE LEFT TO BAIL OUT INTO MEDIAN IF NECESSARY AND ANY STEERING ACTION OTHER THAN PERFECTLY STRAIGHT AHEAD CAUSED THE SHUDDERING TO BECOME EVEN MORE EXTREME. HAVEN'T EXPERIMENTED WITH RADICAL MANEUVERS WHILE APPLYING THE BRAKES BUT I DON'T THINK IT WOULD BE PRETTY. STARTING IN MARCH, 2003 I HAD NOTICED SLIGHT VIBRATION DRIVING. TOOK CAR IN TO FIRESTONE FOR ROUTINE BALANCE, ALIGNMENT AND ROTATION. AFTER WORK DONE THE CAR SHUDDERED NOTICEABLY WHENEVER BRAKES APPLIED, PARTICULARLY SLOWING DOWN THROUGH 45 MPH TO 30 MPH. RETURNED CAR TO SHOP AND THEY WORKED ON ROTORS AND DRUMS. THERE WAS NO IMPROVEMENT. TOOK CAR TO 2ND FIRESTONE AND HAD SENIOR MECHANIC INSPECT. REPLACED REAR DRUMS WITH NEW BUT PROBLEM PERSISTED, SO HE PUT OLD DRUMS BACK ON AND SUGGESTED TAKING TO FORD DEALER. TOOK CAR TO KRIEGER FORD. THEY REPEATED EXPERIMENT WITH NEW DRUMS WITH SAME RESULT. THEY CALLED FORD HOTLINE AND WERE TOLD THAT THIS WAS A KNOWN PROBLEM WITH 8" BRAKES. THE ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS IS TO INSTALL FACTORY AUTHORIZED 9" BRAKE SYSTEM PER FORD SERVICE BULLETIN 0009007. IN OTHER WORDS FORD KNOWS IT HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE 8" BRAKES AS DESIGNED AND INSTALLED BY FORD BUT WANTS ME TO PAY TO ELIMINATE THIS SAFETY HAZARD. ALSO THIS PROBLEM APPEARS TO HAVE CAUSED ALL OF MY RIMS TO BECOME SOMEWHAT WARPED, WITH ONE EXCESSIVELY WARPED. TOTAL COST IS $523 FOR PARTS, $323 FOR LABOR, $100 FOR NEW RIM. *NLM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):3FAFP6636XM.

I AM AN ORIGINAL OWNER OF A 1999 FORD CONTOUR SE SPORT. ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO THERE WAS A MAINTENANCE RECALL FOR THE CONTOUR'S DASH COMING UP DUE TO BAD GLUE. I TOOK MY VEHICLE TO THE NEAREST FORD DEALERSHIP AND FOUND THAT MY DASH WAS SO BAD IT HAD TO BE REPLACED. MY CAR WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY AT THIS TIME ALSO. NOW MY DASH IS COMMING UP JUST LIKE IT DID BEFORE, EVIDENTLY THE DASH THEY REPLACED IT WITH STILL HAD THE DEFECTIVE GLUE IN IT. I CONTACTED FORD EXPLAINING THIS TO THEM AND FINDING OUT THAT THE MAINTENANCE ORDER HAD ENDED LAST YEAR. I TOLD THEM ABOUT IT BEING REPLACED AND DOING THE SAME THING IT DONE BEFORE WHILE ALSO EXPLAINING MY CONCERN ABOUT THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG RELEASING AT ANY GIVEN TIME. THIS COULD VERY WELL HURT SOMEONE LIKE MYSELF WHO HAS HAD OPEN HEART SURGERY AND THEN HAD TO HAVE MY CHEST REWIRED DUE TO MY STERNUM NOT FUSING BACK TOGETHER CORRECTLY NOT TO MENTION WHAT THIS COULD DO TO ONE OF MY CHILDREN. THEY REFUSE TO REPAIR MY DASH EVEN THOUGH I DID WHAT THE LETTER TOLD ME AND COULDN'T HAVE AVOIDED THIS PROBLEM FROM HAPPENING AGAIN. I DIDN'T MAKE THE DASH NOR DID I MAKE THE GLUE, BUT I UPHELD MY RESPONSABILITIES. THIS IS A SAFETY CONCERN AND SHOULD BE REPAIRED BY FORD AT THERE EXPENSE NOT MINE. *JB.Mileage was 5000 miles.

FORD CONTOUR Tires

FORD CONTOUR 1999 Tires Report #10060795

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on Feb 01, 2004.FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . AFTER 22K MILES I HAVE TO REPLACE THE ORIGINAL TIRES 185/70/R14 ON MY FORD CONTOUR SE '99. I CONTACTED GENERAL TIRE (THE TIRES HAVE 70K MILES WARRANTY). I WAS SURPRISED TO FIND OUT THAT "GENERAL TIRE WAS NOT CONTRACTED BY FORD CO TO PUT TIRES 185/70/R14 ON FORD CONTOUR SE". I CONTACTED TIRE DEALERS, CHECK WEBSITES AND FOUND THAT THE ONLY SIZE 205/60/R15 IS LISTED AS AN ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT. THE SIZE 185/70/R14 IS DOWNSIZE TIRES, AND TIRE MANUFACTURES WILL NOT HONOR THE TIRE WARRANTY IF I PUT THESE TIRES ON MY CONTOUR SE. THIS IS ONE PROBLEM. THE BIGGEST ISSUE IS SAFETY: DO THE TIRES 185/70/R14 PROVIDE THE SAME SAFETY FEATURES AS 205/60/R15? I FOUND THAT R15 TIRES COULD HOLD 400 LB MORE THAN R14 TIRES, PROVIDE BETTER TRACKING CONTROL. AND, I ALREADY KNOW THAT, THE R14 TIRES LASTED ONLY 22K MILES. I TRY TO CONVINCE FORD CO THAT BECAUSE OF THE PRODUCTION DEFECT MY CAR - CONTOUR SE 99 -WAS EQUIPPED WITH INCORRECT TIRES (185/70/R14 INSTEAD OF 205/60/R15), AND AS A RESULT OF THAT THE SAFETY LEVEL OF THE CAR IS LESS THAN IT SHOULD BE, AND TIRE WARRANTY IS DENIED BY TIRE MANUFACTURERS. THE ONLY FIX IS TO REPLACE THE WHEELS (RIM AND TIRES). THANK YOU. .Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP6637XK. Ford Contour 1999 problem was reported in FARMINGTON HILLS, MI. Vehicle was purchased on 19991001. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was using Cruise Control.DEALER'S NAME: AVIS FORD .

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on May 01, 2003.FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY . AS SOON AS I EXITED THE FREEWAY (ALMOST A FULL CIRCLE EXIT), MY CAR STARTED CHOKING AND FINALLY STOPPED. NO FUEL SEEMED TO BE REACHING THE ENGINE. I HAD AAA TOW IT HOME SINCE I WAS CLOSE TO HOME. THE ENGINE CRANKED BUT WOULDN'T START. THIS CHOKING HAPPENED ONCE BEFORE WHEN I ENTERED THE FREEWAY ON A SIMILAR FULL-CIRCLE RAMP, AND THEN STEPPED ON THE GAS TO PICKUP SPEED. IT COUGHED A BIT BUT THEN RAN FINE. SEEMS LIKE THE SPIN CAUSES SOMETHING TO CHOKE. OTHER CONTOUR OWNERS HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS BEFORE. IT SUPPOSEDLY HAPPENS WHEN THE FUEL IS LESS THAN A QUARTER OF THE TANK. FORD HAD RECALLED THE FORD FOCUS FOR FUEL DELIVERY SYSTEM PROBLEMS AND MY CAR EXHIBITS THE EXACT SAME SYMPTOMS. WHEN I TALKED TO FORD CUSTOMER SERVICE, THEY ASKED ME TO TAKE IT TO A DEALER, HAVE IT FIXED AT MY EXPENSE AND THEN THEY WOULD CONSIDER RE-IMBURSING THE EXPENSES, BUT THEY ALSO SAID THAT I SHOULDN'T COUNT ON A REIMBURSEMENT. I EXPLAINED TO THEM THAT THIS COULD BE VERY DANGEROUS SINCE IT CAN HAPPEN WHILE ENTERING A FREEWAY. I'VE SEEN A FEW MORE COMPLAINTS LIKE THIS ON THIS SITE (WWW.NHTSA.ORG) BUT NO SOLUTIONS. SOME SAY THAT THE DEALER CANNOT FIGURE OUT THE CAUSE. THE SOLUTION SHOULD BE THE SAME AS THE FORD FOCUS RECALL SOLUTION AND SHOULD BE FIXED AT FORD'S EXPENSE..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 50000 miles.

JUST YESTERDAY I DROVE MY CAR WITH NO PROBLEM...UNTIL I TURNED OFF THE IGNITION. WHEN I ATTEMPTED TO RESTART THE CAR, I WAS UNABLE TO DO SO. WHEN I TURN THE KEY TO THE FIRST STOP, THE ACCESSORY POSITION, THE RADIO, LIGHTS, ETC., ALL WORK FINE. WHEN I TURN THE KEY FURTHER, TO START THE CAR OR TO THE SECOND STOP TO POWER OTHER DEVICES (AC, POWER WINDOWS, ETC), IT BEHAVES AS IF THE BATTERY IS DEAD. THE BUZZER (DOOR OPEN, KEYS IN IGNITION) IS VERY FAINT, RADIO DOESN'T WORK, WINDSHIELD WIPERS MOVE ONE VERY SLOW PASS (EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE TURNED OFF), CAN'T GET THE CAR OUT OF "PARK". I HAD THE CAR TOWED HOME, BUT CAN'T AFFORD TO HAVE IT CHECKED OUT. WILL CALL THE DEALERSHIP, BUT AM NOT HOPEFUL OF GETTING THE CAR FIXED. *AK.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP6631XK.

THE DASHBOARD OF OUR 1999 FORD CONTOUR HAS EXPERIENCED A SEVERE WARPAGE AND IS NOW RESTING UPWARD ABOUT 5 INCHES HIGHER THAN ITS NORMAL POSITION. THE DEFROSTER GRILL POPPED OUT EARLIER AND IN THE WINTER THE DEFROST FUNCTION DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY ON THE WINDSHIELD. THE CURRENT POSITION OF THE WARPED DASHBOARD IS OBSTRUCTING OUR VISIBILITY OF THE ROADWAY AND A SERVICE TECHNICIAN AT THE LOCAL FORD DEALERSHIP ADMITTED THAT IT WAS A HAZARDOUS.

I PURCHASED A USED 1999 FORD CONTOUR FROM A PRIVATE PARTY ON 6/21/04. WHEN I HAD THE REQUIRED STATE OF VERMONT INSPECTION DONE ON 6/30/04 A BROKEN RIGHT FRONT COIL SPRING WAS DISCOVERED. THIS IS A HISTORIC PROBLEM, AND SEVERE SAFETY HAZZARD ON THE FORD CONTOUR SERIES, AS SUDDEN TIRE FAILURE IS COMMMON WITH THIS BREAKAGE. YEARS 1995 THROUGH 1998 HAVE BEEN RECALLED FOR THIS ISSUE. THE PROBLEM FOR THE 1998 MODEL YEAR WAS NOT DISCOVERED UNTIL 2001, AND A RECALL WAS ISSUED THAT SAME YEAR. THEREFORE, I BELIEVE THAT FORD WAS STILL USING THE DEFECTIVE PARTS WHEN MY CAR WAS BUILT IN 9/98. THIS SEEMS TO BE A PREVALENT PROBLEM AS FORD IS BACKORDERED ON REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR OVER A MONTH.

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on Nov 27, 2003.FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with VISIBILITY . I OWN A 1999 FORD CONTOUR. AROUND THANKSGIVING 2003 I NOTICED THAT THE DEFROST VENT ON MY DASH CAME LOSE. NEXT THE DASH STARTED TO CURL UP. THEN THE DASH STARTED TO PULL AWAY FROM THE FRAME. I CAN SEE THE GLUE USED TO HOLD IT TO THE FRAME. THE DASH IS NOW CURLED SO HIGH I CAN'T SEE THE WIPERS & PART OF THE HOOD. I AM FEARFUL PASSENGER AIRBAG WILL DEPLOY. I CALLED MY LOCAL FORD COMPANY IN NV & WAS TOLD ABOUT A RECALL BUT IT EXPIRED. I HAD SEVERAL ESTIMATES DONE & HAVE BEEN TOLD PARTS ALONE ARE APPROX $800 & LABOR AT LEAST $1000. AUGUST 9TH 2004 I CALLED THE WORLDWIDE SERVICE LINE AT FORD & WAS TOLD THERE WAS NOT A RECALL BUT A CUSTOMER SATISFACTION PROGRAM #01B78 THAT RAN FROM AUGUST 2001 THRU AUGUST 31 2002. I NEVER GOT ANYTHING. I TOLD THEM I DIDNT FEEL I SHOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR IT WHEN THEY KNOW FAULTY EQUIPMENT IS IN THE VEHICLE. THEY TOLD ME THE PROGRAM HAD EXPIRED. WHEN I TOLD THEM IN THEIR EYES NO ONE HAS DIED YET SO IT IS NOT SERIOUS ENOUGH TO ISSUE AN ACTUAL RECALL. THE REP ACKNOWLEDGED THIS STATEMENT SAYING I WAS CORRECT, THAT IT WAS NOT A SAFETY ISSUE. I TOLD THEM THEY ARE WRONG, IT IS A SAFETY ISSUE, THE AIRBAG IS UNDER THAT DASH AND COULD DEPLOY. FORDS ONLY ANSWER TO ME WAS TO TAKE IT TO A CERTIFIED FORD DEALER IN MY AREA & HAVE THEM INSPECT IT. A TECH WILL TELL ME THE COST TO FIX. THEN IT WAS REPEATED THAT THE PROGRAM HAS EXPIRED. FORD IS NOT GOING TO DO A RECALL FOR EQUIPMENT THEY KNOW IS FAULTY & THEY ARE NOT GOING TO PAY FOR THE REPAIRS. I AM LEFT WITH AN UNSAFE VEHICLE TO PAY FOR REPAIRS THAT I FEEL I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR IN THE FIRST PLACE. I DONT KNOW HOW MANY COMPLAINTS NEED TO BE MADE IN ORDER FOR A RECALL TO BE ISSUED BUT I HOPE IT DOESN'T TAKE SOMEONE ACTUALLY GETTING SERIOUSLY HURT OR A FATALITY FOR THEM TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW..

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on Dec 03, 2004.FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with AIR BAGS:FRONTAL . ON DEC. 3, 2004 I WAS INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT WITH MY VEHICLE, 1999 FORD CONTOUR, AND AN ONCOMING VEHICLE, A 1999 FORD PICK-UP. I WAS GOING THROUGH A GREEN LIGHT AT AN INTERSECTION DOING 30-35MPH WHEN THE TRUCK WENT THROUGH HIS RED LIGHT, PLOWING THROUGH THE INTERSECTION. AS A RESULT, I HIT (T-BONED) HIS TRUCK. THE WHOLE FRONT END OF MY VEHICLE RAN INTO THE PASSENGERS SIDE OF HIS VEHICLE (HE WAS DOING 30MPH AT THE VERY LEAST). MY AIR BAG DID NOT DEPLOY AS IT SHOULD HAVE. I HIT MY HEAD ON THE STEERING WHEEL. WHEN PARAMEDICS ARRIVED I WAS THEN PUT IN A NECK BRACE, PUT ON A BACKBOARD, AND TAKEN TO THE ER. I DID NOT SUFFER A CONCUSION, INJURY WAS MINOR (HIT HEAD, APPROX 10 MINUTE STATE OF CONFUSION ABOUT 5 MINUTES AFTER COLLISION, DIZZINESS AND SAW SPOTS ABOUT 30 MIN AFTER COLLISION), AND I'VE ONLY SUFFERED A VERY SORE NECK AND BACK. HOWEVER,INJURIES SUSTAINED COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH WORSE. I DO NOT SEE ANY REASON WHY THE AIR BAG SHOULD NOT HAVE DEPLOYED. FORD SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS FAILURE. SINCE I WAS TAKEN TO THE ER I AM NOT YET AWARE OF ALL OF THE DAMAGE MY VEHICLE HAS SUSTAINED; ALL I KNOW IS THAT THE BUMPER WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION, AND THE CRUMPLE ZONE DID AS IT SHOULD- HOWEVER, BEING THAT THE FRONT BUMPER WAS HIT HARD ENOUGH THAT IT FELL OFF AND THE CRUMPLE ZONE REACTED, THE AIR BAG SHOULD HAVE BEEN ACTIVATED. WHAT CAN BE DONE TO DETERMINE WHY IT DID NOT, AND CAN FORD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE IN SOME MANNER?*AK.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 65000 miles.

DASH WARP CAUSES VISIBILITY PROBLEMS, DEFROSTER MALFUNCTION, LOOSE TRIM 2. WITH THE DASH WARP THE VENT TRIM IS CONTINUALLY POPPING OUT . THERE HAS BEEN NO ACCIDENT OR INCIDENT BUT IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT I DON'T WANT THE VENT TRIM POPPING OUT AND PREVENTING AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT OR CAUSING ANY FURTHER HARM TO ME OR MY FAMILY. THERE HAVE BEEN REPEATED INCIDENTS OF DEFROSTER CAUSING VISIBILITY PROBLEMS BECAUSE OF THE VENT TRIM NOT PROPERLY DISPERSING AIR. THE VENT TRIM WAS PLACED LOOSELY ONTO THE DASH SO THE DEFROSTER WOULD STILL BE USABLE, BUT THE WARPED DASH PREVENTS IT FROM BEING PROPERLY SECURED. A NEW VENT TRIM WILL NOT FIX THIS PROBLEM. THERE WAS AN OLD RECALL WHICH INCLUDED A 'REPAIR KIT', BUT IT HAS EXPIRED. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE RECALL RE-INSTATED. *NM .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 85964 miles.

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on June 11, 2004.FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with STRUCTURE . I HAVE A 1999 FORD CONTOUR. A FEW YEARS AGO THE TOP OF THE DASH WARPED, CAME UP REALLY HIGH. IT WAS AN UNSIGHTLY MESS, NOISY, AND IT ALSO RAISED QUESTIONS ON WHETHER THE PASSENGER SIDE AIR BAG WOULD WORK CORRECTLY. AT THAT TIME IT WAS REPAIRED BY FORD. HOWEVER WITH TIME, THE REPAIR JOB MAKES SOME NOISES AND DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT'S HOLDING AS WELL AS WHEN IT WAS DONE. FORD HAS WASHED THEIR HANDS OF THIS. I BELIEVE THIS TO BE A POTENTIAL SAFETY ISSUE AND BELIEVE FORD SHOULD STAND BEHIND THIS DASHBOARD PROBLEM FOR THE LIFE OF THE CAR.

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 22, 2007.FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with STRUCTURE . IN JULY 2002, I PURCHASED A 1999 FORD CONTOUR FROM A FORD DEALER. THE VEHICLE WAS A FORD CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED VEHICLE. WITHIN SIX MONTHS OF THE PURCHASE, THE DASH BEGAN TO WARP CAUSING THE DEFROST VENT COVER TO POP OUT AND NOT FIT CORRECTLY. THE FORD DEALER NEVER MADE ME AWARE OF A FORD CUSTOMER SATISFACTION PROGRAM (#01B78). ALSO, I NEVER RECEIVED ANY NOTIFICATION FROM FORD. OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS THE DASH HAS CONTINUED TO WARP BADLY. THE WARPING HAS BECOME SO BAD IT COULD INTERFERE WITH THE OPERATION OF THE PASSENGER AIRBAG. ALSO, PART OF THE DASH IS COVERING THE DEFROST VENT. I THINK FORD NEEDS TO RE-OPEN THE OFFER TO REPAIR THIS DEFECT FOR SAFETY REASON. I AGREE WITH THE PETITIONER IN NHTSA ACTION NUMBER DP06004, THAT ". . . IMPROPERLY RETAINED INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENTS CAN BE DETRIMENTAL TO THE DESIRED PERFORMANCE OF FRONT AIR BAG DEPLOYMENTS AS WELL AS BECOME PROJECTILES DURING AIR BAG DEPLOYMENTS." *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 38200 miles.

FORD CONTOUR Fuel/propulsion System

FORD CONTOUR 1999 Fuel/propulsion System Report #10510188

FORD CONTOUR 1999 car safety problem was reported on Nov 09, 2010.FORD CONTOUR 1999, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM . THE FUEL PUMP FAILED FREQUENTLY WHILE DRIVING, USUALLY UPHILL. CAR WOULD STALL AND SOMETIMES RESTART, CREATING A HAZARD WHEN ON THE FREEWAY. EVENTUALLY THE FUEL PUMP FAILED COMPLETELY. MY MECHANIC REPLACED IT, HAVING TO RETROFIT THE GAS TANK IN ORDER FOR THE PUMP TO BE INSTALLED, REMOVING CERTAIN FITTINGS. THE FILLER GROMMET WAS DEFECTIVE, AND AFTER THE FUEL PUMP WAS FIXED AND REFUELING WAS TAKING PLACE, GASOLINE POURED OUT OF THE TANK AND THE CAR HAD TO BE RETURNED TO THE MECHANIC. THE REPLACEMENT FUEL PUMP FAILED ABOUT 10 MONTHS LATER, IN SEPT. 2011. AT THAT TIME, THE CAR HAD BEEN WORKING FINE THE NIGHT BEFORE AND WOULDN'T START IN THE MORNING. FORD WILL ONLY GUARANTEE THE ORIGINAL REPLACEMENT, SO IF THE REPLACEMENT HAD FAILED AFTER MORE THAN TWO MONTHS, FORD WOULDN'T HAVE REPLACED THE PART. THE DRIVER'S SIDE WINDOW MOTOR HAS BROKEN THREE TIMES. I HAVE ALSO HAD TROUBLE WITH THE AIR INTAKE SYSTEM, WHICH CAUSES A WHINE WHENEVER THE CAR IS STARTED COLD. THIS IS IRRITATING, BUT DOESN'T SEEM TO CAUSE ANY DIFFICULTY WITH THE OPERATION OF THE CAR. THE DASHBOARD WAS RECALLED, A CHEAP PLASTIC PIECE PLACED OVER THE VENTS, WHICH RUINED THE LOOK OF THE DASHBOARD. I PERSUADED THE DEALER TO REPLACE THE DASHBOARD AS ORIGINALLY PROMISED IN THE RECALL NOTICE. THE REPLACEMENT HAS NOW ALSO DEVELOPED A PROBLEM WITH THE VENT BEING SEPARATED FROM THE DASH. THERE ARE ALSO VAGUE ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS, INCLUDING SURGING AND DIMMING OF LIGHTS. CAN'T USE THE RADIO FOR FEAR OF STALLING THE CAR, OR USE THE HEATING SYSTEM ALONG WITH THE REAR DEFROST SIMULTANEOUSLY. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 52238 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP66L3XK. Ford Contour 1999 problem was reported in LOS ANGELES, CA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

my 95 ford exploere engine surges when turn my air conditioner on

Ihave a 1994 ford probe which has started to idle very low and stalls at times. It is a 4 cyl. w/ air and a 5 speed. any ideas? I replaced the fuel filter, air flow meter and added HEAT to gas tank to dry and clean fuel system. I think my pcv valv

should a standard transmission truck start when it is in gear without the clucth engaged?

should a 2005 standard transmission ford ranger start when in gear without the clutch engaged?

96 Ford F250 Emergency brake lever gets caught on the auto adjustment spring, causing brakes to be permanently engaged, also allowing the parking break lever to rub against the hub, which can cut through over time.

try pushing the pedals button closer to you. you must have the pedal adjustment button to the left of the radio, looks like a foot, that brings the pedals more inward towards the driver. hope it helped. or look carefully if a wire has corroded. it

i would check ur multi switch on ur stearing colum

on the pedal

whats the sound

Just bought an '06 E-350 van. Left d'ship got on highway and noticed shimmy when I got to 60....same problem????

that happened to me last night! If you rock the car back and for while shifting then it should release the safety lock!

why does it take turning off the veh. while pulling in on the shifter arm, them starting it again while still holding it inwards ever so slightly??
