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

Driving Uphill On I-70 Eastbound By Silverthorne, Co The Engine Simply Quit. Limped To Side Of Highway And Tried To Restart – Nothing. Batteries Are New, Etc Just No Turning Over Of The Engine. Thoughts Are A Bad Ficm, Which There Is Supposedly A Recall But ford Denied That When I Called This Morning. Had The Vehicle Towed To A Shop In Arvada, Co For Diagnosis And Repairs. Sounds Like The Egr System Is About To Go, The Ficm Is Shot And Wiring Harness For Computer Is Gone – All Things ford Is Aware Of But Adamantly Refuses To Do Anything About. This Leaves The Consumer In The Position To Have To Spend Thousands Of $’s To Repair Their Design Flaws. *tr
