Fusion Hybrid

  • 100 miles
This car is the second Fusion hybrid I have. The 2015 and 2016 hybrid titanium had the same issues. I changed one for the other in hope the problem would be gone. Almost everytime I drive in low speeds, circa 15mph up to 30mph on unleveled pavement with setts the following lights turn on: Advance trac, ABS, hill assistant control. Whilst those lights are on, none of those functions works. As it happened in 2015 and still happens in my 2016. Ive complaint to Ford, but they never gave me a solution. I believe it is software problems in ABS module. But no up to date calibration files have resolved this issue. It happens frequently, so I will input the first time it happened with the older car (2015). I know that NHTSA have been investigating a similar issue with 2009 to 2011 Fusion. But I have no idea about the closure of those cases neither whether there is any other investigation going on. I live in brazil, but here, the government and Ford do not care about customers as usa cares. So I hope that an investigation in usa could oblige Ford of brazil make the repairs to Fusion sold here as well. I will input an address of relatives who live in san francisco. My phone will begin with +553

Fusion Hybrid

  • 24,266 miles
While under normal operation at highway speed (65-70mph with cruise control on) the car alerted me to an error ("service advancetrac") and immediately deactivated: Cruise control, traction control, emergency brake assist, and a couple other systems. The check engine light also came on. The car was unable to maintain speed and began losing power. I was able to safely pull the car over to the shoulder of the highway and turn the vehicle on and off twice, the alerts and check engine light persisted through the vehicle restarts. I was able to accelerate and merge back into traffic; however, the maximum speed I was able to maintain was exactly 50mph and I think that may have only been under battery power provided by the hybrid battery system (I.e., electric drive), since no engine noise was apparent while trying to maintain speed. I was able to park at a gas station and call Ford road side service. I have an automatic adapter on the car and the adaptor reported the error code of: P2112 throttle actuator "a" control system-stuck closed. The same error code was also found by the Ford dealer, which repaired the error under warranty.
