I Had An Issue With The Vehicle Having A Sudden Miss From The Engine While On The Freeway. Saturday The Sparkplugs And One Coil Pack Was Replaced. The Vehicle Was Next Driven On Sunday Evening Where Approx. 1/2 Mile From The Home The Vehicle Shut Off Without Any Power To The Steering And Brakes. Instruments Lights Were Still Working But Dropped To The Off Position. I Opened The Hood And Smelled electrical Fumes, Not Being Able To See What Was Wrong, I Disconnected The Battery With A Pair Of Channelocks. The Vehicle Was Towed Home And I Began To Investigate The Issue. I Found That The Pcm/ecm Had Been Rendered Permanently Nonfunctional Causing The Vehicle Shut Off. The Wiring Had A 1.5″ By 2″ & 3/4″ Deep Burnt/melted Area On A Roughly 2″ Round Harness. I Further Found That The Main Wiring Harness From The Pcm/ecm In The Factory Installed Position Had Been Rubbing For Some Time On An Exhaust Component Wrapped With Fiberglass. The Plastic Wrapping And Metal Wrapping Was Obviously Breached And Exposed The Wiring To Be Grounded To The Exhaust Component And Also Was The Fiberglass On The Exhaust Component Had Worn Off Exposing Bare Heated Metal. The Excessive Heat Helped To Melt Into The Wiring And No Fuses Were Blown. The Protection Had Been Inadequate To Provide A Safe Operation Of The Vehicle. The Engine Is A 5.4l Gasoline Which The Sealed Fuel Source Is Approx. 1 Ft. Away. I Think Any Of The E-series Vans That Year Need To Be Inspected Because Of Stalling And Fire Issues. I Am A 6’2 230 Lb Person And Had Difficulty Slowing The Vehicle On A Vacant Street, Steering Wasn’t As Bad But Required Adequate Force. I Do Have Photos Of The Harness And Exhaust Component. The Ecm/pcm Is Roughly $1200.00 And The Wiring Harness Is Around $670.00 Before Any Labor Or Technical Costs. I Will Inspect All The Other Wire Locations For Other Issues. *tr

This Bus Is Owned By First Baptist Church Of Grant, Al. About One Year Ago We Started Having Times When The Bus Would Crank But Not Start. Our Mechanic Has Checked It Four Different Tlimes, However, Every Time Except This Time (5th Time) It Started When He Went To Check It. This Time We Were Taking Our Seniors On A Trip, But When We Went To Crank It, It Cranked But Would Not Start. We Had It Towed To Woody Anderson ford In Huntsville, Al. I Spoke With The Truck Service Manager Today And He Told Me The Engine Wiring Harness Was Bad. This Bus Only Has 30,000 Miles On It. It Has Been At Woody Anderson ford 4 Days. I Know Recalls Are Based On The Vin Number Primarily. This Is A Like New Bus And Already Had To Replace The Fuel Injectors, Turbo Charger, And A Couple Of Different Sensors. Anyone With Any Common Sense Knows That It Is Not Normal For An Engine Wiring Harness To Go Bad. ford Motor Company Needs To Be Held Accountable And Responsible For Replacing An Engine Component That Should Last As Long As You Own The Vehicle. There Is A Recall On Some Vehicles With A 6.0l Diesel Engine With Problems Like Ours, It Is Recall # 05s34. The ford Dealership Said It Would Cost $3000.00 To Replace The Wiring Harness. This Should Be A ford Motor Company Problem. Thanks For Reading And Considering My Complaint. Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated. My Name Is Steve Stanfield. I Am The Pastor.
