Hello- Welcome to FTE! I have moved your post to the specialized forum we have here for your question. Check out the list of tech forums we have here. There is a wealth of information and expertise here to help you. There are a number of links in my sig below to help you also. Have fun!
The recall you are referring to is the Cruise Control fire recall, And yes your truck should be included in it. I just finally got the letter from Ford yesterday telling me to to take the truck in to have them disconnect the harness until the parts for the fix are available in November. Either call Ford or write them to get more information. Although, you can go on the Ford site and register your vehicle, then they will have on record what you have and automatically send you the recall notice.
As far as you flashing OD light goes.....PROJECTSHO89 is right. It is a code that is being sent. Watch and record the number of flashes in the pattern. Then you can look it up and see what it is telling you. Or you can take it to Autozone or some other parts store. Most will pull codes for free.
Billy Bob, where is the CC switch located, so that i can disconnect it my self? Is it possible to point me in the right direction to find out more about the recall? a picture would really be nice too.... thanks
Well I can post a picture tomorrow, but what you are looking for is just a wire harness with or 4 wires, (only one at location), and it is located on the front side of your brake reservoir where your put the brake fluid. Just unplug it. Then call your local Ford dealer and talk to service about setting an appointment to have the new part installed later in November when it arrives. If they ask for you to bring the recall form, let him know you haven't gotten it yet. Then contact Ford through their web site to get one mailed to you, or call them direct.
Thanks Billy Bob got it, thanks for the info..and dont bother with the pic.. i unplugged it already.... found a thread on the recall and there was a pic of the switch and how to disconnect it. Thanks again for your help
