2010 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #1

Explorer 6-cyl

8 days after new vehicle was purchased, I was pulled over by the sheriff for no taillights. The vehicle was later taken into the dealer for repair and they said the fuse was blown and they replaced the 15amp fuse to the smart junction box. About 50 miles later, a highway patrol drove by and announced on the speaker system to turn on the headlights. I checked and my headlights were on, so I pulled over and noticed the taillights were out again. The next day, the car was serviced a second time and they said they replaced the burned out fuse again and did an extended road test and put 130 miles on the car and said the taillights are working fine. After 5 days of being with the dealer service, we picked up the vehicle, the taillights went out again after 100 miles. We will be in contact with the dealer...
