Drive Train, August 11, 1998

RepairPal Expert Overview

Summary:

Ford has recalled certain 1999 F150 and F250 light duty trucks for an issue with the speed control cable. On some vehicles, the cable may not have fully seated into the accelerator bracket. If it comes loose, the throttle may not return to idle, which can increase stopping distance. Dealers will install a clip to secure the speed control cable into the accelerator bracket.
