The Problem Started With The Transmission Slipping And The Door Ajar Chime Continuously Chimes. We Took The Truck To A Local ford Dealership, Don Davis ford 1901 N. Collins Arlington, Texas 76101 Number 817-461-1000. We Informed The Dealership Of The Trucks Problems And The Next Day They Called To Tell Us That The Door Chime Had Been Fixed But That The Transmission Needed To Be Flushed According To The Manufacturers Suggestion. We Stated That If This Would Fix The Problem To Go Ahead And Proceed. About 3 Weeks Later Billy Was On The Highway Towards Home When The Transmission In The Truck Failed He Had To Push The Truck Off The Highway And Walk To Get Help. We Took The Truck This Time To Another ford Dealer, Westway ford 801 W Airport Freeway Irving, Texas 972-256-5551, This Dealership Found The Transmission Fluid To Be Burnt. The Fluid Smelled Burnt But Was Still Red In Color Also They Found Metal Fragments In The Fluid And The Transmission Filter Was Not Changed Out At The Time The “delux Flush” Was Performed By The Previous Dealership. Hence: If The Flush Was Necessary Then Why Would`nt The Filter Change Out Be? According To Don Davis ford, ford Recommends The Flush But Not The Filter To Be Changed And They Were Going By The Manufacturers Suggestions. We Have Contacted ford But Their Only Response Is “if You Had Purchased The Truck New Then We Would Have Covered The Transmission Being Replaced” . Great Huh? As Far As The Door Ajar Chime We Still Have That Problem And It Has Become A Nusance Due To The Fact That No ford Dealership Has Been Able To Make The Repair Or Advised Us On How To Disconnect The Silly Chime Buzzer. Your Response And Or Comments Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Sincerely, Debbie Holsomback

This 1997 ford f-150 Truck Was Purchased In November 1996 With 6,000 Miles From National Auto Sales. In May 1999 We Noticed The Paint On The Roof Of The Truck Was Chipping Away. The Paint Is Gone And The Gray Primer Is Now Showing In An 18 Inch Area. We Took The Vehicle To Our ford Dealer (holmes Tuttle ford) And Were Told That This Was Not The First Time The Technician Had Seen This Problem And That It Is Called “crazing”. However, Due To The Mileage It Would Not Be Covered Under Warranty. We Then Contacted The ford Customer Care Center And Were Told The Same Thing, It Was Out Of Warramty And Would Not Be Covered. The Vehicle Is Parked In Covered Parking And Is Only Driven Abouit Three Times A Week. No Safety Defect. *ak

The 97 f-150 Had Been Parked Outside Not Started For 2 Days. Sunday Morning We Went To Go To The Lake And The Truck Started But Would Not Go Out Of Park,an Issue I Have Had Before,but This Time The Abs Light Was Flashing. I Have Been In The Automotive Repair Business For 15 Years, So I Had A Good Idea Were To Start Looking. The First Place I Looked Was The Brake Safety Switch Located On The Top Of The Brake Pedal Itsel. Every Thing Checked Out Fine. That Is Were I Have Had The Problem Before So I Thought It Was Another Broken Wire But That Was Not The Case. So I Decided To Check Brake Fluid Level,and Noticed That The Electrical Plug Located At The Front Of The Master Brake Cylinder Had Caught Fire And Melted The Entire Plastic Plug And Wires. Now I Don’t Know When This Happened But I Feel Very Lucky It Went Out By Itself!i Live In The Colorado Mountains And Could Not Imagine The Damage It Could Of Caused If It Would Have Gotten Out Of Control, As It Was Parked By Trees ,shed, Jet Skis,etc. At This Time I Am Going To Try To Replace The Plug And Or Wiring Harness And The Electrical Component On Front Of Master Cylinder That I Believe Was The Cause Of The Small Fire. I Will Call ford Dealer Ship In Morning To See If They Have Any Info On Problem. I Have All Old Parts And Have Documented The Issue With Pictures. I Have Also Noticed That The Cruise Control Switch Box Is Located About 3 Inches From The Electrical Brake Switch That Caught Fire. I Do Know About The Cruise Control Recall And It Makes Me Wonder If All Of These Tragic ford Fires Reported Really Did Start From The Cruise Control Switch? *tr

I Parked My Vehicle In The Garage And Left And When I Returned It Was On Fire And The Fire Department Had Ripped The Garage Door Open And Dragged It Out The Garage.. I Have Been Told By Several People That There Is A Recall For The Brake Switch. I Find That Interesting Seeing How O Had Call ford Last Summer Around July2010 For I Had Just Moved To This Address I Am At Now. And I Was Told There Is No Open Recalls… Hmmm… So, I Do Still Have The Truck At This Point But Do Plan To Have It Towed Out At End Of This Week.. Would Be Great If There Is Any Recourse To This. I Am Out A Vehicle And No Money To Replace It… *tr
