Ford recall issued - only trucks, SUVs and vans involved

1994-2002 F-250, F-350, F-450 & F-550 Super Duty trucks
2000-2002 Excursions
1994-1996 Econoline Vans
1996-2002 E-450 Vans
1998 Explorers & Mountaineers

NOTE: None of the diesel-powered vehicles are involved in this recall.

This accounts for roughly 1.2 Million trucks, SUVs and Vans across North America.

Ford says the vehicles have problems with the cruise control deactivation switch which could cause a fire.

Haven't they had this problem on their vehicles before? I thought I remember reading about the cruise button doing this before. It may have been on a car though and now they are finding it true on trucks as well.

These vehicles were just added to the list today. The recall that was issued last year was focused primarily on 1994-2002 F-150s

The old recall: Fires prompt huge Ford recall - 9/8/05

Re: Ford recall issued - only trucks, SUVs and vans involved

See, they recalled one of our work trucks last year, took the cruise control off and haven't done a thing to it yet. I need to get that fixed...

And I didn't realize ford made a 550 that wasn't diesel...but I guess you can still get the v10 in those.

Same thing with Ian. His truck was part of the recall. I don't think they ever fixed his cruise control either.
