I Have A 2001 ford F150 Supercrew Pick Up. I Don’t Recall Giving A Notice In The Mail, However I Saw A Story On Tv About A Woman Whose Home Burned Down Due To The Defect Of The Cruise Control. My Wife Drives The vehicle To Work Everyday In Weslaco And The Dealership Is Just A Block Away From Her Office. This Is Not The Dealership That The vehicle Was Purchased From. My Wife Took The vehicle To The Local Dealership Twice To Get The Recall Fixed But The Customer Service Department Was So Rude She Didn’t Leave It. The Last Time Was Just Wednesday June 8th.there Is More To Tell About This But Not Enough Space. I Am Unemployed And My Wife’s Income Is All We Have Right Now So Our Insurance Had Lapsed So She Parked The Truck Outside My Mother In Law’s House And My Wife Was Driving Her Mom’s Car. Tuesday June 14th At About 4pm Someone Knocked On My Mother In Law’s Door And Told Her That The Truck Was On Fire. She Called The Fire Department And They Came And Put It Out But The Entire Truck Was Gone. The Fire Marshal Told Hundreds Of Photos And Documented Everything. He Told Us That It Was Defintely The Recall Of A Factory Default. He Said There Had Been 5 Cases In Weslaco All The Same. The Fire Starts In The Motor Under The Front Side Left Tire. The Tire Popped, The Hood Was Totally Burns Away The Bumper And The Paint On The Sides. The Dash Board, Side Mirrors And The Motor Is All One Molded Piece. The Winshield Exploded With Glass Everywhere. I Am Only Thankful That It Didn’t Burn Down The House Or That Someone I Love Wasn’t Driving It When The Fire Started.

ford Motor Co. Issued A Voluntary Recall On Thousands Of f-150 Series Pu’s In Early 2005, Concerning The Cruise Contol Switch. My Cruise Control Quit Operating So I Checked What ford Asked. Sure Enough The Switch Was Full Of Fluid. I Was Told By My ford Dealer That This Was A Recall Problem And Would Be Fixed When Parts Came Available.

Preliminary Data.. ford F150 2001 Supercrew Was Left Unattended While Shopping. Upon Return I Noted A Puddle Of Fluid That Was Not Present Earlier Under The vehicle. Upon Leaning Down On The Drivers Side Front To Inspect For The Source Of The Leak Small Flames Were Noted In The Engine Compartment. Upon Opening The Hood For Further Inspection It Was Noted That The Rear Driver Side Of The Engine Compartment Was On Fire (appearing To Me And Other Observers To Be Electrical In Nature) With The Brake Fluid Reservoir Completed Melted. The Flames First Observed Were Forced By The Molten Plastic Dripping Down Into The Engine Compartment. The Fire Department Was Notified But Thanks To Some Employees Of The Shop And The Availability There Of An Approved Extinguisher, The Fire Was Terminated Before The Arrival Of The Fire Department Some 7 Minutes Later. Comments Were Made By Others And Later By Internet Research That The Damage Has All Of The Appearances Of Being Forced By The Speed Control Deactivation Switch Issue. The vehicle Is Currently Under Evaluation By A ford Dealership And My Insurance Company. Fortunately The vehicle Was Unoccupied At The Time And Was In The Middle Of A Strip Center Parking Lot With No vehicles Around It Should The Fire Had Time To Develop Further. Earlier Or Later, It Could Have Easily Consumed My Home.*jb

2001 ford F150 Super Crew Cruise Control Issues When Using The Cruise Control At Highway Speeds (50-65 Mph), If You Encounter An Incline Sufficient For The Transmission To Downshift The Cruise Control Begins To Accelerate In A Runaway Mode. It Will Not Shutoff. During One Of These Events I Allowed The vehicle To Continue Accelerating To Determine If The Cruise Would Eventually Shut Down. It Did Not And I Reached A Speed Of Over 90 Mph. Whereas There Was A Recall On This vehicle For Fires Related To The Cruise Control I Waited Until Those Parts Were Available Before Mentioning This To My ford Dealer. The Dealer Insisted That The Recall Would Not Fix This Problem. That Is, The Sudden Acceleration Was Unrelated To The Recall. On 2/16/06 I Took My vehicle To The Dealer For The Sudden Acceleration Complaint. He Test Drove The vehicle And Was Not Able To Duplicate The Problem So His Contention Was That If He Cannot Duplicate It, It Does Not Exist. Nothing Could Be Further From The Truth.

1 Month Ago My 2001 F150 Would Not Crank. I Checked The Fuse And The #6 Fuse (5 Amp) Had Blown. I Replaced It With A New 5 Amp Fuse And It Blew Again. I Called Our Roadside Assistance And Asked That The Truck Be Towed As We Wanted To Know Why It Was Blowing The Fuse Each Time We Replaced It. The Repair Shop Had The Truck For 2 Days And Could Not Duplicate The Problem About 10 Days Later It Blew A Fuse Again. This Time It Was The #15 Fuse(still A 5 Amp Fuse) And This Time The Truck Would Crank But Would Not Go Out Of Park. Called A Tow Truck Again And Had It Taken To A Different Repair Shop That Night. I Spoke With The Repair Shop Owner On Sat July 1 And Told Him It Was A Secondary vehicle And As This Was A Holiday Weekend Not To Rush. Just When They Opened Back Up After The Holiday If He Could Get It Fixed Then. On The Morning Of July 4th 2006 We Were Called Around 10:30 Am By The Repair Shop Owner, Who Was Also A Tenant In This Building, That Our Truck Had Caught On Fire During The Night And Was A Total Loss. He Asked That We Come Right Over. We Called Our Insurance On The Way As We Luckily Still Had Full Coverage Even Though Our Truck Was Paid For. The Auto Repair Shop Had All The Bay Doors Cut Open By The Fire Department During The Night(july 3rd) And There Were Several Other Cars In The Building That Were Damaged Also. At Least One Of Which Was A Total Loss Also. The Building Had Water And Smoke Damage Even In Its Restroom. The Repair Shop Has Not Been Able To Open All Week And Who Knows How Large His Deductible, Etc Is. I Have Since Found Out My ford 2003 Excursion Has A Fire Recall On It. I Am Terrified To Have My Children In It Or Have It Near My Home Or Someone Else’s As I Don’t Want To Be Responsible If It Happens Again. I Have Also Found Out That In My Neighborhood Of 26 Houses. The Man 4 Doors Down Had His F150 Burn Down In His Driveway During The Night. It Happened The Month Prior To Us Moving Here. *jb
