Ford Excursion Recalls
Ford has recalled 2003 Excursion and F150, F250, and F350 trucks because the speed control deactivation switch may leak and overheat, which can create a fire hazard. Dealers will install a fused wiring harness to the deactivation switch wiring.
On trucks equipped with the 6.0L diesel engine, the engine ground stud for the negative battery cable may be loose. A loose ground may cause current to flow through the radio suppression strap causing it to heat up, and potentially melt or ignite nearby components, which could lead to a fire. Dealers will replace the engine ground stud and the radio suppression strap, and nearby components will be inspected for damage. The recall began July 23, 2004. The Ford recall number is 04S15.
Ford has recalled certain 2000-2001 Excursion, Expedition, F150, F250, F350, Focus, Taurus, Mercury Sable, Lincoln Continental, Navigator, and Town Car vehicles due to a defect in the wiper motor gear case. The wiper motor could overheat and malfunction, which may cause the wipers to stop working as designed. Dealers will inspect the wiper motor and replace the gear case cover.
Ford has recalled 2000 Excursion, Taurus, and Mercury Sable vehicles for a concern with the headlight switch knob. The knob may fracture and detach from the headlight switch, which can make it difficult for the driver to employ the headlights. Dealers will replace the knob.
Ford has recalled certain 2001 Excursion, Expedition, and F150/250/350 trucks due to a possible defect in the driver's side air bag assembly. The inflator canister in the driver's air bag module may have an inadequate weld near the igniter, which may cause the air bag not to deploy as intended. Dealers will replace the driver's side air bag assembly.
