Problem has happened twice in last two weeks - First time raining and dark, second time dry and daylight. Happened about 1 week apart. Driving down road and all of a sudden the dash lights and hi-beam indicator start blinking rapidly with a clicking noise. First time this happened, it was early morning and I could see the headlights rapidly alternating low/high beam along with this clicking noise. Also, first time this happened, major deceleration occurred momentarily. Second time, acceleration not affected.
This lasted about 1 minute each time. Have had the car (new) since June 2005 and has been a great little car until this. Most unusual thing I've ever seen in my driving years, and I'm 55yrs. Took to Ford dealer and of course they couldn't find anything. I didn't ask if they put it on diagnostic machine - assuming they did, but may be wrong. They said they drove it (I had to leave it with them for a few hours). My daughter drives this car and I told her to be careful about pulling out in front of others (with this acceleration thing going on).
Do you have any clue as to what is causing this to happen? I'm completely stumped. Any recommendations I could ask the dealer to do?
