They changed the design of the control and no longer use a vacuum dump switch when the brakes are pressed. In place of it they put an electric switch on the master cylinder. The original design of the switch is defective and allowed brake fluid to leak in and cause a short that set ther fluid on fire. Prior to 94 there is no problem, as the switch doesn't exist on them.Hey guys, from what I have read, it sounds like the recall is for 94 to 96 Broncos. How is the cruise control different in those models than from say my 93? Just wondering if I should get mine checked out? Thanks, B-Cack
my recall letter says the parts aren't even available till Nov. of 05 but to take it to the dealer and let them diconnect it until then so are you sure they fixed it, or is it just disconnected?/ ya!!!!!!the recall is verry easy my local ford dealer did it in 10 min
they just replace the brakemaster cylinder pressure sensor and install a updated harness inline with that sensor. done... thats it @-)
They say brake fluid could leak into the cruise control deactivation switch which could lead to corosion and cause a fire. It has happened before.anybody have the recall information from ford....concerning the faulty cruise control switch? ....
Yes :-& However, it is easily solved either on a temporary basis by bypassing the switch or getting the recal service done by a Ford dealer. Probably something you should check on for your new truck.They say brake fluid could leak into the cruise control deactivation switch which could lead to corosion and cause a fire.
