I truly sounds like an electrical issue, had it been something mechanical had broken t would not have started working again. It is likely a sensor, can I get a VIN #, I just would like to look for any Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) or Special Service Messages (SSM) that pertain to your vehicle.

Ok here are my thoughts here. I am assuming you are John from Chicago, the original owner and bought it at McCarthy Ford. I see your Ford ESP policy just expired a couple of months ago. I am including a TSB that has caused us some issues here in Wi. And with the rain you have had there the last few days (my wife is down there visiting family and told me about it) this just might be the issue. If not, you should ask your dealership about the CLP program (customer loyalty program where Ford alots some not alot but some money towards goodwill after warranty assistance). For the record, I am still a Bear fan, I just happened to make my "up-north home" my full time home a few years ago. GO BEARS!!!!!! And of course my baseball team...ChiSox & Ozzie.graphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphicgraphic
