Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, Eddie here and I will do my best to help. The red wrench light means, there is a problem with the Electronic throttle Module. As of right now, Ford is aware of this, it's on Fusions, Escapes, and some other Mercury models. What Ford has come up with as a repair, is cleaning the Throttle Module, and downloading new software that is suppose to fix it. However, to be blunt, I'm not sure this will fix it, as I think the Throttle Module itself is a bad design and should use a different design inside to send the positioning signal. But, that is just my opinion. Ford is aware of this and should repair this for you for free in my opinion. It doesn't look like it's a recall yet, but it does look like it's close. I would say call your closest Ford dealer, tell them you have the P2111 on your Fusion and see when they can get it in to service. I feel sure it won't be the first time they have seen this problem.Code description for the P2111 is as follows.
- Throttle Body Plate Binding- Faulty Throttle Actuator- Throttle Actuator harness is open or shorted- Throttle Actuator circuit poor electrical connection
Here is an interesting read on the problem that you may want to bring to the service writer or managers attention at the dealership.http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/defect/results.cfm?action_number=PE13003&SearchType=QuickSearch&summary=true
