Dashboard lights

  • 2016 FORD FUSION
  • 63,000 MILES
Put your seat belts on for this one, so in June of 2020 a week after I had taken my car to Firestone for an oil change I was driving back from Florida (4 hour drive) and my dashboard lit up like a Christmas tree, took it to the first repair shop on this journey and they fixed a spark plug issue and something else, and the lights were still showing up (ABS, airbags, brake system, check engine, coolant, tire pressure, stability control, and rear parking) the mechanic made it seem like there wasn’t any actual issue just a glitch w the computer. Well, later down this timeline my car started notifying me that the coolant was over heating. So we replaced the fluids and every week after that I’d get another coolant over heating alarm. A month or so of this happening the engine quit running, I brought it to Ford this time and they told me I’d need a new engine and since Ford's prices are high and I’m a broke college student I took it to another mechanic (this being the third person to look at my sad excuse for a car). They had my car for four months and had to replace my engine twice bc there were complications with the first one. Yesterday I finally got it back and not even 20 minutes into driving my car all the lights filled my dashboard again and this time it seems like my car is now having trouble when I accelerate quickly, it’ll jerk a little and won’t accelerate and the check engine light blinks for about 30 seconds then goes away. Does anyone have any idea what is going on? I do plan on taking it back to the shop that previously was working on it but I’ve already spent around $6,000.00 and I’m still stuck at square one. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. If information on what the last repair shop did to my car is needed I can provide, I also tried to attach an image of what my dashboard looks like but I can’t tell if it attached or not.
Do you

Sorry we did not get the image. anyway, we need to run the codes to see what's going on. to be sure lets do a CAN scan which is the future of automotive repair you can get a CAN scanner from Amazon for about $50.00. here is a video to show you how. You will need the CAN scanner for almost all repairs in the future so it's a good idea to have and it works on almost all cars.




Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.
