I Recently Took My 2001fordescape In For service For Recall #07s51. While A Partial Repair Has Been Completed The Parts To Complete The Repair Totally Will Not Be Available Until August. While ford States The Vehicle Is Ok To Drive They Informed Me Not To Park Near Structures Or Inside Garages Until The Repair Is Completed In August, They Cannot Be Held Liable If I Do So. That Statement Makes Me Believe The Car Is Unsafe To Drive Down The Road With My Family In, Yet ford Will Not Do Anything To Remedy The Situation Or Expedite The Repair Or Offer Me A Safe Vehicle On Loan Until Mine Can Be 100% Repaired. I Have Made Numerous Calls And Emails To ford To Get Action On This Repair And Have Been Treated Rudely And Dismissed Telling Me There Is Nothing That Can Be Done For Me. *jb

While Attending A School Play, I Was Called Outside B/c My fordescape Was Smoking From Under The Hood And The Alarm Was Going Off. I Had Been Inside & The Car Shut Off For 25 Min. Before Being Called Out. Smoke & Fire Was Billowing From Under The Hood, And Fire Was Dropping On The Ground By The Time The Fire Dept. Arrived. The Hood Of My Vehicle Had To Be Pried Up On The Sides And Front In Order To Put Out The Fire. Everything Inside Had Melted. They Asked If I Had Noticed Anything Unusual About The Car. It Had Been A Little Slow To Start For A Couple Days, But Seemed To Run Fine. I Thought Perhaps I Needed To Check The Spark Plugs. The Fire Dept. Suggested I Contact ford To Check On Any Potential Recalls. ford Motor Verified That Confirmed That Recall #07s51 Did Apply To The Vehicle Based On My Vin#. Remembering Back, Earlier In The Week, My Abs Light Did Come On, Which I Thought Was Unusual. But It Did Not Stay On Long, So I Was Not Concerned. I Filed A Report With ford‘s Crc. They Have Submitted The Report To Their General Council. They Said To Expect Up To 15 Business Days Before Receiving A Response On Next The Steps. No One Was Hurt, But The Vehicle Was Declared Totaled. I Have A Report From The Fire Dept. Pictures, Affidavits And A Personal Written Report. This Was My Only Vehicle. *tr The Consumer Also Stated The Brake Light Illuminated, But Once She Added Brake Fluid Everything Seemed Fine. Updated 09/14/09.*jb

An Electrical Short Caused The Abs To Malfunction. This Illuminated The Abs Warning Light, Which Caused The Abs Control Module To Overheat Resulting In A Burning Odor, Smoke, And Engine Fire. This Condition Occurred When The Vehicle Ignition Switch Was In The Off Position, And While The Vehicle Was Being Operated. It Turns Out That There Were Several Recalls On This Particular Make And Model Which I Have Not Been Notified About. I Have Contacted ford Motor Company About The Recalls. Two Different People Told Me That If The Vin For My Vehicle Was Not Included In The Recall, Then The Manufacturer Is Not Obligated To Fix The Safety Defect. The Vehicle Does Not Have Anti- Lock Brakes Now Because The Control Module Has Burned Up, And The Fuses Had To Be Removed. The Price For Installation Of A New Abs Control Module Is Estimated At $1500 To $2500. *tr

The Abs Warning Light Came On In My 2001fordescape. I Took It To The fordservice Department. They Ran Some Tests. They Said The Abs Module Was Probably The Cause But They Did Not Have One In Stock. They Would Order It And Contact Me To Schedule Installation. They Did Not Indicate The Vehicle Was Unsafe To Operate. I Drove The Car Back Home And To Work The Next Day. On The Way Home After Work A Fire Started In The Engine Compartment Left Front Side Which Is Near The Brake System Components. I Put The Fire Out And Contacted My Insurance Company. The Vehicle Was No Longer Drivable. I Had It Towed To The ford Dealer The Next Day. Neither ford Or Farmers Insurance Could Pinpoint The Origin Of The Fire But Their Was Damage Around The Abs And Its Wiring. ford Has Denied Responsibility For The Damage. I Remembered A Safety Recall Was Done Previously Having To Do With The Abs. I Rechecked And Discovered That Similar Fires Were The Reason For The Recall. ford Said They Did Perform The Recall On My Vehicle. I Checked Further On Line And Saw That A Safety Investigation Was Opened Because The Remedy By ford Has Not Eliminated Vehicle Abs Wiring Fires. I Believe My fordescape Is Another Case Of This Safety Defect And ford Should Take Responsibility For The Damage And Related Expenses I Have Incurred. *tr

fordescape2002 – We Have Had An Ongoing Problem With The Abs And Brake Lights Staying On. We Have Had It Into A ford Dealership Several Times, Who Was Not Able To Fix It, And An Independent Mechanic Who Was Finally Able To Identify That It Was The Antilock Braking System’s Electronic Control Module Causing The Issue. Just Read An Article Concerning An Ongoing Investigation Into Engine Fires Possibly Caused By This Module And Are Very Concerned That We Could Be Next. We First Took It Into The Dealer The Month Our Warranty Expired So I Am Putting The “incident Date” In For That Month.

Approx 1 Year Ago – Our 2002fordescape Started To Smoke While Sitting In The Garage. When We Got It To The Dealer Is Was Found That The Wiring Harness Where It Connected To The Abs Ecu Unit Had Shorted Due To Brake Fluid Getting Into Connector. When The Shop Disconnected The Wiring Harness Connector, The Next Day, The Fluid Ignited Burning Up The Harness. The Estimated Cost To Fix Was $2000 Dollars, Replacement Of The Harness And Ecu Unit. Which Since The Majority Of The Damage Was Done In The Shop ford Did Cover The Cost Of The Repair. I Am Just Filling This As I Have Seen That This Issue Is Under Investigation, And Thought That I Should Report Our Incident. *jb

A ford Recall Notice (#07s51) Had Been Mailed Informing Me Of A Recall To Our 2002escape . The Recall, As The Letter States, Had To Do With Dislodged Wire Seals That Could Effect The Abs Module. The Recall Notice Went On To State That If Left Unfixed, The Abs Module Could Overheat Due To The Recall Part And Cause, In Some Cases, The Car To Catch On Fire Even When Off. This Description Fit Our Car’s Problem, Since Our Car’s Abs Light And Brake Light Was On Unexplainable. Logically, We Took Our Car To The Dealership To Have The Repair Done On The Car. After Having The Repair Done, We Checked The Car And The Abs Light And The Brake Light Were Still On. I Confronted The service Manager Who Had Administered The Repair And He Assured Me That They Had Repaired The Problem To The Extent That ford Had Allowed Them. He Had Told Me That All He Had Done Was Change Was A Connector And Nothing Else. They Had Not Fixed The Problem; Their Report Ended With Telling Me That The Abs Light And Parking Light Were Still On And A Diagnostics Was Still Needed. The Mechanics Did Not Only Leave The Problem Unfixed, But Were Unwilling To Admit That The Problem Was From The Recall Part. Incidentally, Three Days Later After The Mechanics Had Worked On My Car, The fordescape Caught Fire While Parked On The Corner Of Cenher Drive In Chula Vista Ca. Fortunately, My Spouse Was Not Inside The Car. The Fireman Were Called To The Scene In Order To Put Out The Fire And A Police Report Was Made. The Fire Left My Car A Total Loss. I Contacted ford Costumer service Of The Incident And They Informed Me It Would Take 10 Business Days To Answer My Request. *tr

Sept 24, 2008

There Was A Recall On 2002fordescape Last Year(2007) On The Abs Unit. Campaign Number 07v156000. My Problem Is That One Dealership Turned In The Recall As Being Completed On 4/24/07. They Stated They Put Grease On The Abs Module. On 10/19/2008 I Was Driving Home And The Module Caught On Fire. The Original Dealership That Supposedly Did The Recall Is Now No Longer In Business. So I Called The ford Motor Company And Was Told That I Would Have To Have The Vehicle Inspected By A fordservice Dept And If They Determined The Cause To Be A Defective Module Then It Would Be Covered. So I Took My Car To Another Dealership And They Told Me That It Was Definitely A Defect In The Module. So They Called ford Motor Company To Verify The Claim And Then ford Turns It Down. The Reason Was That It Had Been More Than 12 Months Since Recall Was Done. They Said That Parts And Labor Are Covered For Only 12 Months. But I Have The Receipt That Shows All The First Dealership Done Was Inspect And Apply Grease. No Parts Were Replaced. If They Had Actually Replaced The Module Then I Could Understand. The Recall Came Out After The Car Was Already 5 Years Old. So The Recall Didn’t State Anything About The Age Of The Part And I Don’t See How Grease Could Fix A 5 Year Old Part. Even So If All They Replaced Was Grease Then How Does The 5 Year Old Part Fall Under A 12 Month Part And Labor Warranty? I Think The Part Should Be Replaced Since It Has Been Diagnosed As Defective. I Would Gladly Pay For The Grease Since It Is Over 12 Months Old.( That’s They Only Part They Replaced) What Do I Do Now? ford Admitted The Problem When They Issued The Recall, And Now They Do Not Want To Fix It Because Of Some Grease (band-aide) They Put On It? *tr

The Smoke Cleared And It Appeared That The Problem Had Originated In The Area Of The Abs System/master Cylinder. The Problem Was Diagnosed By A ford Dealership As A Short In The Abs Module, Causing A Wiring Harness To Burn. These Two Parts Are Being Replaced, And The Old Parts May Be Available From The Dealership Or From The Insurance Company, Pemco. *tr

2003fordescape Recall – #07v156000 Recall For service Brakes, Hydraulic : Antilock : Control Unit/module I Have Owned This Vehicle Since August 2005. Apparently In 2007 There Was A Recall On This Brake Issue. I Was Never Notified, Nor Did Any Dealer Attend To This Issue During A Routine service. I Contacted ford September 2010 When My Anti Lock Light Started To Appear On My Dash. ford Did Not List Me As The Owner Even Though I Purchased This Vehicle Through A Reputable Dealer And Had My Info Stored On Their Owners Web Page, And Have All Bill Of Sales Info On File. While Talking To The ford Customer service Person It Was Clear That He Was Editing The Record To Somehow Show That I Either Knew About The Recall Or That Some Dealer Inspected This Issue And Found Nothing Wrong. When I Asked To Talk To A Manager, I Was Put On Hold For Over 30 Minutes And Finally Hung Up. I Then Sent An Email Complaining. ford Wrote Back They Will Do Nothing About This As The Campaign Is Over. I Now Have A Very Serious Anti Lock Brake Issue. The Anti Lock Mechanism Has Now Failed. I Wish The Nhtsa To Help Me Get ford To Fix This Issue Since I Owned The Vehicle Since 2005, The Recall Was In 2007, ford Never Tried To Contact Me On This Recall, And No ford Dealer Ever Inspected My Vehicle For This Issue.
