Ford Motor Company knew in the development stage of this switch, that it leaked, and that this leak could cause fires. The switch developed by Texas Instruments was in my 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII.
on the 9Th day of December My son was driving a friend home, and the car caught fire. Payton pulled off the road, but the break-line had already burned thru, with a fire under the hood,and without breaks, they hit a tree. Payton tried to help his friend get out of the window, but the smoke and fire overwhelmed them both.
My car was recall 7 months later in August of 2007.
It is June 19Th 2009 now, and Ford denies, and pushes the blame anywhere but to themselves.
This fire was not a rare occurrence, many people have lost, everything, and Ford gets away with it, because the cars/trucks are junked and crushed before, the victims , know what really happened, then it's to late, the evidence is gone.
Ford has sat back and let loyal customers die, over a $20.00 part. Please boycott Ford Motor Company.
