Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2009 Ford Fusion Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 123,850 miles


My Ford Fusion was parked at the time of the incident. I went to start the car and it took at long time to crank and ran very roughly when idling. The check engine and wrench lights were illuminated. It read error codesp2112 throttle actuator control system - stuck closed and P2104 tac - forced idle. The gas pedal was nonresponsive and the car was immobilized. It restarted like this several times before starting normally and operating normally. The wrench light was no longer illuminated, but the check engine light is still on. The Ford dealer confirmed that my car needs a new throttle body assembly. The VIN # of my car is not included in Ford's customer satisfaction program regarding throttle problems in vehicles from 2009-2013, although my 2009 Fusion has 123,850 miles on it. Ford will do this repair free in vehicles that meet the criteria, although there is no official recall on the cars. The dealer said the car is not safe to drive until repaired. I am thankful and lucky this did not happen while I was driving.

The contact owns a 2009 Ford Fusion. While driving at approximately 16 mph, the vehicle hesitated to accelerate. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the throttle body needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 69,000.
