Was driving down the highway at 75 mph with cruise control set. The wrench light and traction control light came on, cruise control turned off and lost power and speed. I had to pull off into the ditch to avoid an accident and drive down the shoulder to a rest stop. I turned off the car and let it sit for for 5 minutes and the turned it back on and it ran fine. After reading other issues like mine I'm thinking it may be the throttle body or traction control sensors.

I got into the car with my one month old granddaughter and her mom and my son, the car hesitated to start, got on the expressway and tried to pick up speed and the car goes only to 55 speed and it don't pick up so I had to get off the expressway with my family because the car wasn't acting right, .then the next thing I know the check engine light came on and the airbag came on and that tool bar on the left hand side of the dash board came on.as well as the check engine light, this is a 2006 Mercury Milan premier, I heard a lot of clicking while I was driving back home, when I tried to turn the car hesitate and another car almost hit me and my family and one month old granddaughter. I reach out to Ford and was told that they didn't have any recall in the system for my car. I don't know what to do this is so wrong, these are some of the codes that has come on the car as well P0403, P0161, P0155, P0141, P0135, P0102, P0020, P0010, P0179, P1489, P0443.

Turned my car on one morning and a wrench indicator light came on followed by the check engine light upon driving to my repair shop to get problem looked at noticed a significant decrease in acceleration power and vehicle was in "limp mode" my mechanic told me. Looked up the issue and found it was a common issue with my make and model and that a complaint has been submitted for a recall of the throttle body on my vehicle and many others so I am submitting my complaint to help get this issue put into recall status as the part is fairly expensive and I don't believe we as a consumer should have to pay out of pocket for a defect from faulty parts installed on the vehicle at the factory.

The contact owns a 2006 Mercury Milan. The contact stated that the vehicle hesitated to start. The contact also mentioned that the vehicle independently surged forward when depressing the brake pedal and excessive force was required. In addition, the contact mentioned that the accelerator pedal was depressed repeatedly but the vehicle failed to accelerate. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where a tune up was performed but the failure recurred. On another occasion, the contact stated that while reversing at 5 mph, the vehicle failed to accelerate. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer, who diagnosed that the throttle body needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 99,000.

We were going up a hill on the interstate at 70mph when the engine suddenly lost power. I'm told it went into limp mode. There had been no warning of a problem.
