kinda funny look at the first non V8 or the first 213ci on this list

Definitely tuned to run 117mph but they can run 100mph factory right? I think car and driver got 103mph in 2013.
I guess someone just had to show up to the strip with a Taurus that day

So some of you know that I took a trip out back east I've been here in New Jersey for the past going on 4 weeks. The car drove flawlessly all the way across the country no issues whatsoever car now has about 5500 miles on it. The first two weeks I was here was just fine I was about to head up to Vermont to see Andrew when all of a sudden one day two days before I had to leave fuse # 46 kept popping it through 14 codes on this one fuse. Now 2 weeks later cars been in and out of 2 shop spent about $500 on not getting it fixed. shop told me it was like looking for a needle in a haystack. One wire is causing all this problems and they cannot find it. Now I got a 4300 lb paper weight no where to park it looking for a place to store it.
Purchased another vehicle just so I can get around and get back to California.
I am so fed up and ****** with all the bulshit that i went through in the past year with this car getting it to this point where I'm about to throw up my hands and sell everything.
Here are the codes..
P0010, p0020, p0034, p0035, p0141, p00c1, p00c2, p0135,p0155,p0161,p0245,p0246,p0443,p0645.
so if anybody have any ideas greatly appreciated cuz I'm about to throw it all out the door

The only one of those that looks out of place is the p0645 code, air conditioning clutch relay control circuit. Does the fuse pop immediately or does it take a bit of driving for it to happen? If it is not immediate I would try leaving the AC turned off. The other codes seem like they are a result of the fuse popping. Maybe there is just a short or burned out component in your AC system.

yeah I thought about that I knew something was happening because the AC stopped working that day. the first time it was in the shop he said he found a circuit board from one of my lights leaning up against the firewall It had no power cuz I cut it off before I left California. plus all my lights are hooked up to fuse number 26. so the first time when I drove it home after he said he fixed it. It made it halfway to my destination when the AC stopped working fuse popped.
I did the test with the AC and far as I know it didn't work.
Is there something I should unplug on the AC unit to prevent it from getting any power?

That I am unsure about, but i would try a new fuse and just do not turn on the ac.

Definitely not an enjoyable time with the car but I’d hate to see you sell it

Bought all of the stock front pieces and put her back together. Threw in the 91 octane tune and now my GF is driving the SHO daily. Glad to see it back on the road, instead of just sitting in my garage. I trust it more then her older Jetta and with it being 110+ around here, I feel better knowing it has stupid cold AC and is reliable for her and her 4 year old daughter.

Right now it's at the shop went there today to pay the bill they worked on it for 2.5 hours. The bill was $63 they only charged me half hour which was nice of them.
I don't know what kind of damage it would cause if I drove the car 3 hours to you. when I do drive it I don't go over 40 45 miles an hour after that it starts sputtering. I would have to see about getting it towed.

Just PM me then man, if you need a place to store it i got you. We can even work on it. I had my engine and components apart so much that its easy for me to work on. I also live directly across from a Ford dealer with very good techs.

that would cost me $97 a month and I can't afford that I broke myself buying another car
Sorry to see the problems. I had a similar situation after I started modifying the car but I was lucky in that it was pretty apparent where my problems were when I popped the hood.
The zip I had holding down the wiring harness around my CAI had failed and a couple wires got snipped when the harness logged itself between battery and CAI.

I hope ya find the issue soon, once I repaired those wires everything was fine.
