Steve, I'm very sorry to hear about the situation. I've been through a similar Scenario more than one time so I understand your frustration. I was stranded in Miami once for 6 hours on a Sunday... My car had been disassembled more than once and I always noted grounds and things. I have lots of documentary pictures. There are actually 2 grounds up front one on each side. There's also 1 on the rear transmission and some other ones located throughout the engine bay.
After many hours of testing my tech found some issues in a wiring harness in the center console. after it was replaced in never happened again.
One of the unfortunate issues with the new GT is the complexity of the communication network and the number of modules. If you recall Ford boasted the GT runs more lines of code than a F-22 which sounds good but if you have one issues where a module losses communication with another there is a domino affect that can spread to other modules that can make it really difficult to track down these problems.
Good luck my friend..

Hello Stormcat, I was just talking to Steve a few hours ago and told him about your experience with your car. After I heard about your experience and leaving you stranded we at Pat Milliken Ford had a meeting and came up with a plan to make sure that none of our local would be stranded for that long. This is why all my local customers have my cell phone number.

That's a good plan. I actually had my techs number unfortunately it was a Sunday he was at a family reunion out of the area and took awhile to get and to the dealership to get his gear and the trailer.. No ones fault just bad timing. I added some more text to above and I'm sure you worked on Andy's car when he had a harness issue and have probably dealt with other wiring / connector issues..

Lesson here is , don’t drive your car on Sundays!
