2007 Ford Fusion Owner Comments

problem #8

May 092016


  • 116,000 miles


Electronic throttle body malfunction while driving on highway at 70mph (speed limit), using cruise control. All acceleration control stopped working. Had to maneuver across highway, through active traffic, to shoulder to turn off the car. Waited for a few minutes and successfully restarted. Got home and had to take the car to the mechanic the next day because it wouldn't accelerate past 40mph.

I was going on a trip to visit family and Missouri from wi and my 2007 Ford Fusion lost all power. The wrench light came on and check engine light came on. I had the codes read and stated that it was a throttle body issue. Any time I use the curse control on long trips this happens.

Our Ford Fusion suddenly lost power and starting acting in an unpredictable fashion, while traveling on rte 95 North in the passing lane. We narrowly avoided a rear end collision with the vehicle behind us, as well as other vehicles as we worked to get over to the safety of the breakdown lane. An orange wrench light was in an "on" state and the car was running very rough. After checking all gauges and fluids, I restarted the car and found it to be in a normal state again, with no wrench light visible. We turned around and headed home. This condition occurred one more time about 45 miles later, just a few miles from our home, same result. I researched the issue and found that the NHTSA is aware of this problem and has been asked to fix over 1 million cars exhibiting the same issue. I contacted Ford, as recommended in a report I discovered online. Their response was that, while they were aware of the issue and the problems it causes, our 2007 Fusion was not covered and we are responsible for the repairs. This issue just occurred today, therefore I have no documentation, other than what is available on many websites and blogs, documented by other Ford owners, complaining of the same issue. Am I to understand that of the million plus cars having this problem, some will be corrected, while for some reason that Ford could not explain, some are not?

Going down the road at speed, car makes noise then losses ability to accelerate, wrench warning light comes on. Very dangerous to have happen on busy street. Pull over, turn motor off, restart the car and no wrench light, car can go without problem. Has happened on several occasions.

Travelling on highway at steady cruising speed. Road was flat and straight. Throttle body failed suddenly and left me without any acceleration ability. Had to pull off to side of a major highway without responsive gas pedal and car decelerating quickly.

Passenger side airbag is bulging up on one side. I park in a garage and I'm in wi so we don't get extreme heat, so I'm not sure why I'm having a issue. It's either an airbag issue or a dashboard issue. My passenger side airbag light appears to be working fine...it only goes on with a passenger or when my purse gets too heavy and its on the seat. Also, my accelerator petal makes a weird static-sounding noise when it's at a certain position. It has nothing to do with speed, it happens at various speeds, so it's only when the petal is held in the same spot which is about halfway down to the floor. If I press the petal down beyond this spot or raise my foot so the petal is above that spot, the noise stops...only to return again when the petal eventually lands back in that problematic spot (about halfway down).

Driving along a four lane highway at approximately 60mph when suddenly the vehicle stopped accelerating, I had to put it in neutral, letting it coast, turn the engine off and quickly back on. It allowed me to continue normally after that. However this problem has been occurring intermittently ever since. When it gets really bad, it will repeat the problem anywhere from 5-10 minutes after I turn it and back on and the traction control and maintenance lights will come on. After awhile the check engine light will come and stay on for a couple of days. Had a diagnostics run on it while the check engine light was on and it indicated that the throttle control system was malfunctioning. Ford wants over $600 for parts and labor to fix the problem which I think is ridiculous considering how many others are having the same problem. Will be contacting the regional sales manager regarding this.

Fusion 4-cyl

  • 93,500 miles
Lost power while trying to pass a car had no throttle and almost had a head on collision got got home had a air injection code P0491 in the system. Found a bad air injection pump loaded with water replaced the air pump and the problem is solved I see Ford has a lot of issues with water getting into these pumps but refuses to do anything about it.contacted Ford with no response. I worked in Ford dealerships for over 25 years so I know how to diagnose these problems. I am not concerned about the money for fixing this problem I just feel the issue should be corrected before someone gets hurt or killed.
