Default Re: 2011 Ranger fog lights vibration

She's going back to the dealer on Wednesday for the ongoing carwash leak above the passenger side doors. They're gonna check the fog lights for anything loose that can be corrected. I do about 120 down the 403 to work and it's only at those speeds in windy conditions that I notice the slight distraction, so I'm not to worried either way. I was just curious if your vehicles did the same thing.

Hey Gerry... I'm thinking it's probably more to do with the speed i'm travelling. You're probably only doing about 85-90 on Wellington to/from London? At those speeds it's not an issue. If you jump on the 401 some night for any distance you may notice it. I'll letcha' know what Ford says later this week. Jay

I had a couple of things with my 2010 that I am trying to get straight .

The drivers window stutters when you bring it up or down . They said it was dirty and cleaned the glass . Yea right .

My license plate holder for the front was ready to fall off . Had to re tighten all the mounting hardware .

The alarm - When I try to remote start it looks like it is going to start but a red alarm flashes on the dash board display ( lower left on the dashboard ) and the radio comes on like its going to try to start but the starter won't turn over .

The trans . I swear something is going on . At 65 after about a half hour of driving I get slight vibration . I brought it to them once on this and they say they can't find anything . drives me nuts as I'll be on my way to or from work . Bought the extended warranty as well so its goo to 100 K miles .


Also , If I don't let it warm up , take off after a minute or 2 , I hit the gas and get a gas fume blowback thats pretty strong in the cab .

few days off around Xmas time so I'll make an appt and get it to a good ford dealer and have them take a look .

Get 'er done They should totally be able to correct your window issue. It's only going to get worse. I had a driveline noise issue on my old F150 that, until I took the mechanic for a burn, they couldn't hear. I wouldn't let that one go. She's still under warranty thankfully!

Only other complaint I have about this Ranger compared to my last one is that there's like a cm of play at the top of the brake until the discs engage with the rotors. My old one responded immediately when I touched the peddle. The dealership said there's no problem... that's just how the brakes are. So I guess I'll have to get used to it.

Oh Yea , I will as I need to find a better Ford dealership . Someplace I know that will take it for a ride and see for themselves . The local one , Sales folks are pretty good but the mechanics turn around pretty quickly . My brakes seem to be really good . I have a score on one of the rotors , looks like some dirt or something got up there , but the poads are clean and it has not gotten worse since I bought it in May brand new ...

Hey Jay, there is a section of concrete road on Highbury Ave (Hwy 126), just south of the 401 and it is pretty bumpy at all the joints in the concrete. I can drive it at 110 km and the ride is rough. I can not see any movement in my fog lights. I'll keep looking, but I don't know what else to tell you. Good luck.
