August 22, 2006Hi all,
Not sure if y'all are aware of this. I just received a recall notice from Ford. Here is exactly what the letter says.
Ford Motor Co. has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 1994-2002 F250/350/450/550, 1994-1996 E-150/250/350, 1996-2002-E-450*, 2000-2002 Excursion, and 1998 Explorer and Mountaineer vehicles equipped with Speed Control.
* includes motorhome applications.
It goes on to say that an underhood speed control deactivation switch may overheat, smoke, or burn, which could result in an underhood fire.This condition may occur either when the vehicle is parked or when it is being operated,even if the speed control is not in use.
Hope this helps.
