On the models above, certain trucks equipped with speed control, gas or natural gas engines, the speed control deactivation switch may overheat. The overheating speed control switch could result in smoke that may impair the diver’s ability to see, and/or cause a fire under the truck’s hood.
What to do if you own one of these Ford trucks:
Immediately discontinue use of the speed control, and take your truck in to a Ford dealer. The dealer will install a fused wiring harness into the speed control system for free.
