The contact owns a 2007 Ford Mustang. When the vehicle was parked, the contact turned the key between the accessory and off position and the engine started and the vehicle moved without touching the gears. Also, the brake lights, hazard lights, and headlights failed to illuminate. The dealer and manufacturer were not notified of the failures. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 125,000.

  • 998 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Ford Mustang. The contact stated that he was informed by another driver that the brakes lights were illuminated. The contact inspected the vehicle and found that when the clutch was depressed, the brake lights illuminated because the bracket that connected the clutch and brake pedal stretched enough to cause the illumination of the brake lights. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 998.

Went to drive my 3 and a half year old Mustang to work the other day after a big rainstorm. Noticed a musty mold smell but assumed it was nothing. As I drove my car up my driveway, (a slight incline) gallons of water spilled out from under the dashboard on the passenger side behind the glove box. Used a carpet extractor to vacuum up over 2 gallons of water (no kidding, emptied 1 gallon extractor tank 3 times) brought the car to the dealership where it was purchased and was informed that the car needed a repair that was outlined in a technical service bulletin from Ford, but because my car was no longer under warranty, I would be responsible for paying for the repair -and that the GEM module needed to be replaced as the water had poured into and damaged it. The price for this, not including replacing the ruined carpet and pad or the rusted seat mounting brackets was over $1100. It says right in the tsb from Ford that this issue is caused by gaps in the sealant around drainage grommets inside the firewall, yet somehow this is the customers problem"?" researching online I've encountered hundreds of horror stories from other owners with the same issue, but Ford has been denying this since at least 2005. (6 years!!) they need to be forced to recall these vehicles as it is painfully obvious that they refuse to do so voluntarily... the 3 year old vehicle is now a moldy health hazard and I'm told that it's just a matter of time before the electrical problems begin.thank you for providing me a forum to vent my frustrations over my "swamp buggy" as I have gotten no satisfaction anywhere else.

2007 manufacturing defect: Extensive leaking of water into electrical components. Causing lights to go off, or sometimes go on without switching on, windows go up and down by themselves, occasionally motor cuts out on highway, cruise control operates intermittently. Eventually this will also result in premature structural damage.

2007 Ford Mustang-V-6, the section junction boxes and computer, wiring harnesses have leaks that are caused by a known flaw in the design of grommets from the door and drain holes which drip into and short out the electrical systems and lights and ABS components. All lights go out. All inside instruments shut down. $800 to repair. Ford has a tsb but will not assist. It causes major problems rear defroster and wipers. Alot of 2005-2009 Mustangs have the same or will have the same problems. I did not have any brake lights, or turn signals. I had people run into the back because they did not see my signals. Which quit working totally. I did not know.
