1996 recall?

Read in a local paper on Manitoulin Island that a guy left his 1996 F 150 and went away for the weekend, returning to find that the truck had burned. The newspaper story said that they had checked recall notices and that this truck had a recall for a defective switch that could cause fire issues.... forget the exact details but it seemed they were ruling out arson and blaming it on this issue.

Does the recall ring a bell with anyone?

to add you can just unhook the cruz control by unplugging it till the new one comes in or take it to the dealer and they will unplug aswell

I remember that, the dealer put a little harness on (that went between the master cylinder where the cruse plugs in to the main harness) with a fusible link in it

Guess it's a good thing I never got around to changing the master cylinder with the switch when I put the cruise control in. I think I'll stick with the jumper for now until I figure out something else. The truck I got the cruise control from never had this harness. My truck didn't originally come with cruise. Any thoughts anyone?

I think you can order the harness though the dealer
