2014 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #9

Steering wheel switch controls (cruise control, radio, blue tooth functions) become erratic and switch functions become jumbled (ie. Activating the radio volume control switch may change the radio station or increase vehicle speed). Problem is intermittent, but did occur during a dealer service visit. The dealer replaced switch pack, but problem still persists. I conducted my own research and found other F150 owners having similar issues. Some have been solved with the replacement of the steering column clock spring. With the unpredictability of when this issue presents itself I have resorted to never using the cruise control feature due to the risk of unintended speed changes. While the remaining issues are inconvenient, I would not classify them as dangerous. The clock spring issue appears to be common enough to warrant a more thorough investigation. For those using the cruise control feature are at an increased risk of an inadvertent activation which may lead to an accident and possible death. Refer to the following utube link for a demonstration of the issue. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?V=C1ofg0-qovi

The operator called and informed us that the vehicle acted like it wouldn't accelerate. When he stomped down on the pedal the vehicle went full acceleration and stayed there. Hitting the brakes didn't help. The cruise control was on but not set. He tried pulling up on the pedal, turning off cruise and killed truck and restarted to max acceleration, killed the engine, restarted and it reset and went to working. We have no codes, inspected throttle body and cleaned, inspected wiring and app operation, other than graph signals were choppy and not fairly smooth (no diagnosis).

Unintended acceleration event, 2014 Ford F150, 5.0 L V-8. no damage or injuries. Occurred 10/27/15 at approx. 2 pm in spring hill Florida, 80 degrees and raining. Experienced sudden full open throttle condition when braking the vehicle as I pulled into a parking stall at a bank. Brake restrained the vehicle from lunging forward for several seconds until I shifted into neutral. Acceleration was sufficient to spin the tires on the damp pavement. In neutral the throttle went to max RPM for 2 to 3 seconds, then slowed to idle. Cruise control was not in use and floor mat was not near the accelerator. Vehicle is scheduled to be checked at the Ford dealership on fri 10/30. My passenger is a witness.

While traveling to san diego - as we exited off the freeway the cruise control failed to release. Stepping on the brake, turning off the switch did not change the stuck cruise control. We were going 70 mph as we exited and continued at 70 for about 1/2 mile - through 1 stop sign and 3 stop lights before were able to get to a safe place to turn the key off and loose all control of steering of the truck. We turned onto a side street. Turned off the truck 10-15 seconds - upon turning the truck back on it went immediately to 6000 RPM's burning rubber only reason we did not speed out of control again is because had both feet on the brake. Turned truck off again waited 10 minutes - turned it on again - the cruise control had finally released. We drove to the nearest Ford dealership which was 5 miles. They found nothing wrong with the truck - when we returned home we took it to our local dealer where we bought the truck - they found nothing wrong and said to bring it back if it happens again - we may not be alive next time to bring it back!

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

Vehicle was stopped at a red light with the operator's foot on the bake, vehicle began to accelerate unintentionally, operator was unable to stop and avoid collision of car in front of truck until the vehicle was placed in park. This prevented a collision from occurring. Incident occurred a second time on 1/22/2015 when vehicle was stopped at intersection. Truck narrowly missed oncoming traffic before transmission was forced by operator into "park". continuing to apply pressure on the brakes and pumping the brakes were not successful in stopping the acceleration of the vehicle.

2014 F150 ecoboost V6 - engine shudders and stalls upon rapid acceleration; issue has been addressed with "deflector shield" but this shield is already in place in my vehicle but the vehicle continues to have this issue - I feel the vehicle is unsafe but Ford offers no assistance with resolution of the issue.
