Ford told him to check for binding in the steering column, all clear, so then tech was told to re-attach a ground wire somewhere and that was it. He took it for a test drive and all was fine, whick I believe, beacuse it is so intermitten. 95% of time it steers beautifully! Other times its just a minor notchy feeling, but once in a while it gets a little scary, to the point where I won't keep the car if they cant find a fix for it. I'll be calling the dealer again today to let them know the issue is still there and to see what the next step is. I'll keep you posted.
I assume this is not happening to everyone here but the fact that you keep saying "within 30 minutes" has me puzzled. Does it sometimes happen right away or does it always take close to 30 minutes? Once you reach the 30 minute mark, does it happen more frequently? If it were programing then everyone would have the exact same problem so that leaves whatever sensors that are used to detect an off center pull or some weird mechanical issue.
