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
