Ford Territory 2010: Variety of electrical issues
Asked by Troy
My work car is a 2010 Ford Territory with a long list of issues that couldn't be fixed at the auto electrician. The speedo sometimes doesn't work, the air-conditioning fan will continue to blow with the keys removed from ignition, the car will sometimes lock itself with keys in ignition, struggles to fuel when first starting and stalls, won't turn over sometimes when turning the key (can take up to three attempts before winding over). And the list goes on. What can I do?

As well as a fix, I’d also be looking for a new auto electrician, Troy. Every one of these problems can, I reckon, be traced back to the car’s body computer, a component that Ford had all sorts of trouble with in its Australian made cars over the years. It’s a well known problem, can be an intermittent one and will definitely produce the glitches you’re seeing. A new body computer can also often mean a new key which has to be electronically coded to the computer before anything will work again.
