it is a safety issue ford will check the switch for leaks if it is ok they will add an inline fuse. If the switch leaks ford will replace the switch.

My dealer did the last similar recall while I waited (at the Taco Bell across the street:rolleyes: ). It would depend on how busy they are, but I would think with a scheduled appointment they could make it a stop-and-go deal.

is that the recall where they run a jumper so the brake fluid can't leak into the switch?
Switch still can leak after recall. But the new fuse in jumper harness will blow instead of burning your truck to the ground if it does leak

I got the same letter for my '00 a couple days back. I got one for my '02, back in 2008 I think it was. Never took it in and had it done. Probably will take this one in though

They do re prints on the Recalls every once in a while, basically re send the recall out to the customers who may have never got the notice or maybe threw it out. Covers their A** basically.

Is the result of the malfunction an unreliable cruise control? My95 stroker cruise control doesn't shut off sometimes with the off button only the brake, and even sometimes I have to really press the brakes hard. ...

The most undesirable result of the malfunction is your truck catches fire and burns your house down while you are sleeping.

as I recall, they had said that if the master cylinder leaks, brake fluid can drip into it somehow and cause the short.
