Okay. It's not clear what you mean by "this happened" but this "justanswer" is only partially correct.
You don't need to pull any fuses. Disconnect one of the battery cables for a few minutes and then reconnect and start the vehicle.
Don't touch the HVAC controls.
The car will re-calibrate the HVAC damper servos in less than a minute.
This may resolve your issue.
If not, you need to be more specific about your symptoms (fault codes etc) before anyone here can offer meaningful advice.
I searched google, because this did not happen until I replaced my battery. This is the solution I found and will check it in the morning.
Thanks for the response and the suggestion to check with an aftermarket parts store to see if they can cross-reference the part.
I was thinking that it had to be something other than the tensioner since ken123 says that he had his replaced twice and it didn't fix the problem.
Also, in the TSB11-20-26 they reference "install alternator pulley kit" so I was thinking that's what it likely was
I guess more investigation is required.
Thanks for the help.
Evidently the kit is just a pulley per description on FordPart.com below:
PULLEY Part #: AL8Z10344A Pack Qty: 1 Price: $ 185.53
That was the part number on my repair order for my 2012 Fusion. I did not look at the part but I would think it was the tensioner pulley with stronger tension to stop the harmonic oscillations that are causing the growling sounds. Have you tried checking to see if an aftermarket parts store can cross the part number over to something they have?
Sorry to hear that you are giving up on tapping into the parking light circuit.
Why does your "plan c" not just leave the LEDs powered on at all times since you say your power outlet times off and only powers back on when you start the vehicle?
Interesting. I didn't realize that about the fuse-tap, but I DID include/have considered a "downstream" as you put it tap. IOW finding a wire feeding something that does what I want the ambient lighting to mimic.
There is a "plan c", similar to paying to have it done, a "partial surrender". I could give up on the "luxury" of the FW lights coming on with the parking lights and timing out with same, and just ACCEPT them as manually SWITCHED, and WIRE them into the 12v-ciglighter port. When I need them, plug 'em in. I don't love it but would be super simple, and still better than NOT having them at all.
The blindspot sensor on my 2015 Fusion sensor starts acting up when the temperature gets above 80 degrees or so. When it heats up, the light will remain on, sometimes for an extended time and sometimes until I disable it. It seems to be mostly on the drivers side and more often when there is a line of cars passing on the left. I've taken it to the dealer and as I expected they can't duplicate the problem. They've test driven it twice and ran diagnostics without finding the problem. I get no faults showing on the dash although I don't know if there is a fault light for that.
Does anyone have anything I can point the dealer at to isolate the problem? I'd like to get this fixed while still under warranty.
This is the same dealer that kept my car for over 3 weeks while doing a nationwide search for replacement fuel injectors they said was causing my car to miss only to find out afterwards that it was some type of bad computer test module. Needless to say I'm not hopeful.
When and if this is fixed, a "stay logged in" choice should be implemented, as there was in the old format. Previously, I could just open up the site and be already signed in, then click on "View New Content" and be good to go. Now we have to go through sub-menus and I'm still not sure which one to use. I created an activity stream for new content since my last visit and sometimes "no activity" appears, yet there has been new activity.
I also can't figure out how the 'Preview' is supposed to work. All I get is a repeat of what is there and the original is gone so corrections can't be made.
I realize that any new software will have teething problems but I'm having a hard time finding this new format to be an improvement over the old. BTW, the other BON forums are still using the old format. Will they be changing to this one as well?
