I was just watching COPS (who knows how old or new), and one of the stories was a van fire. When they get on the scene a Ford Aerostar was fully in flames. The fire fighters got the fire out and the officer was talking to the lady when she said she just got a recall notice a few days earlier about engine fires in these vans. . . . . I had not heard this before. Anyone know any more info on this?

I did a Google search for this and found this . . . . LINKY concerning CRUISE CONTROL SWITCHES in MANY Ford cars/trucks causing fires.

Here's some crazy info on the cruise circuit, all Fords use the same one, it's a backup kill switch on the bottom of the master cylinder, the one on the brake pedal kills the cruise, but the other one is backup. The idiot engineers wired it hot at all times, like it requires to be on when the engine is off, unplug it, put a fusible link jumper wire between the post and "not" put it on the cylinder. Strange how so few, and certain ones burnt up, yet all have the same setup, I'm not sure even Ford knows what is causing it, they are just putting fusible links in the pigtails now, that's it, did my van 3 years ago.
