Default Had the recall done on the cruise control

It doesn't look very professional, Just held on with two zip ties and only took them 20 minutes. But hey it's free ford work! lol

I can post some pics tomorrow

Agreed, I and other members have seen pics of the recall "repaired" it's pretty half-assed, lol.

But only if a leak develops and the switch gets wet? (That's what I have heard)

Pshew.

I got that fixed last year.

They did a half-@ssed job on mine.

Even my quick fix wiring looks better than what they did.

Default Re: Had the recall done on the cruise control

The dealership is supposed to inspect the cruise switch and do one of the following, #1 if its leaking they are supposed to replace the switch and install a harness in between the existing harness and the new switch. #2 If its not leaking they are supposed to install a different harness in between the old harness and the old switch. The #2 harness is a lot larger than the one for #1 and looks horrible.

Got mine done like a year ago, you can tell they added a wire set in, but mine looks pretty good.
