I Went To The Dealer And He Was Very Aware Of The Problem And That He Is Also An F150 Owner And That He Cannot Get ford To Fix His Problems Either. Whe I Call ford At 1800 392 3673 The Lady That Assisted Me Told Me That She Never Heard Of Such Problems. Which Goes To Show That ford Is Just Trying To Hide The Problem. I Have Bought And Extended Warranty Which The Dealer Says It Wont Cover This Failures, And That ford Is Only Replacing Doors On Vehicles That Their Warranty Hasnot Expired. From What I Have Gather, I Am One In Thousands Of F150 Owners With This Type Of Structural Damage And All We Want Is To Have Our Problem Fix.*ak

See Odi 10091339 -in Examining The Failed Part There Was No Evidence Of Corrosion Causing A Weakness Of The Cable. Rather, The Retaining Lug At The End Of The Cable Appears To Have Sheared As A Result Of Routine Driving Conditions Over Time. In Purchasing A Replacement Part From ford, I Found That They Have Changed The Design Of The Lift Mechanism To Add A Tension Relief Spring To Prevent The Likely Hood Of A Cable Failure Such As I Experienced. Old Part: F75z*1a131*bc New Part 2l3z*1a131*aa This Indicates Their Recognition That There Was A Design Defect In The Original Part. As These Vehicles Age There Will Be Increased Chance Of Future Failure From Cable Strain Incurred During Routine Use. *jb

Nothing To Warn Me Of The Impending Failure. The Spare Tire Cable Snapped Causing The Spare To Drop, Flipping Underneath The Trailer-in-tow, Causing The Trailer To Buck. Fortunately, The Trailer Recovered And No One Was Behind Me. Should This Have Happened At A Higher Rate Of Speed With Someone Behind Me And While Carrying A Load, It Could Have Turned Fatal. The Failing Part, The Spare Tire Winch, Has Been Replaced. I Have Counted A Minimum Of 10 Other Reports On This Site Of This Failure. I Believe A Recall Is In Order. *nm

One Day My 1998 ford f-150 With Only 37,000 Miles (i Am The Original Owner)was Working Just Fine. Several Days Later I Get Into The Truck And I Noticed The Electric Windows Wouldn’t Go Down,i Assumed It Was A Fuse. No Luck On That, All Fuses Good Except The Lighter Fuse,which I Don’t Use. When I Got To My Destination I Couldn’t Get It Into 4-wheel Drive. When I Was Getting Ready To Leave I Couldn’t Get The Windshield Wipers On When It Was Raining. I Had No Choice But To Drive 30 Miles Home With No Wipers In The Rain,extremely Hard To See To Drive And Very Dangerous. I Found Info On The Internet That Pointed To The Generic Electronic Module. A Lot Of Other People Were Complaining Of The Same Problem And Worse On A Online Forum. This Problem Goes Back To 1994 When ford First Started Using This Device. I Ended Up Paying $600.00 For The Dealer To Replace The Gem That Was Obviously Defective From The Start,not To Mention The Danger Of Driving In The Rain With No Wipers. ford Has A Recall On The 99 On Up 250 And 350 With The Same Device,but They Wouldn’t Honor This On The 98. They Have Decided To Retool The Device By Taking The 4-wheel Drive Control Out Of This Device As A Stand Alone Control. I Feel ford Should Have Replaced This At Their Expense In Light Of All The Problems This Has Caused. Some Have Reported That Their Trucks Have Jumped Into 4-low While Driving On The Road,others Have Said That They Can’t Disengage 4-wheel After Using The Feature Off Road. *tr
