Yes, probably concerns the air bag debacle. I have a 2003 Edge with a 2004 leather wheel and airbag. I have the VIN from the truck the leather wheel came out of and it is subject to the recall. Ford dealer won't fix it because it isn't in the original vehicle. Told them that when it blows my face off, I will come and sit in their showroom, so everyone can see what happens when THEIR service department won't do their job.

No, it isn't connected anymore...

This has been going on for a long time. Ford isn't making this a priority. I have no operable airbags now.

old guy,

Takata is the company that manufactured that dangerous air bag and they are back logged into the next decade. If Ford can't get the parts to replace WTF do you expect them to do.......just pull them out of thin air??????

I thought the problem with your year Ranger air bag system was the switch underneath the brake master cylinder can catch fire. Unplug it at the master cylinder and I didn't know that Ford ever had a fix for it.
I can see Ford not covering it in your case because you replaced the steering wheel for some reason.

@dvrich: My brake master has the new switch and harness per the recall. Yes, that was their reasoning... my 2003 had been upgraded to a 2004 wheel and airbag. Thing about it is, shouldn't matter as long as the airbag in question is part of the recall.

It's Ford's f#ck up because the leading airbag supplier in the world screwed up and is on the hook for billions of $$$$$...??
