Default Newer ranger recall

I heard today that ford is recalling some Ranger Models most are newer truck and replacement parts purchased at a dealer after a certain date.

here are the details

Quote:
*
Summary:
FORD IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011 RANGER TRUCKS BUILT FROM JANUARY 25, 2011, THROUGH APRIL 25, 2011 AT THE TWIN CITIES ASSEMBLY PLANT, AND SERVICE PARTS DISTRIBUTED TO DEALERS FOR CERTAIN 2004 THROUGH 2011 MODEL YEAR RANGER TRUCKS, 2002 THROUGH 2005 MODEL YEAR EXCURSION VEHICLES, AND 2002 THROUGH 2007 MODEL YEAR F-250, F-350, F-450, AND F-550 TRUCKS FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT." THE MULTI-FUNCTION SWITCH WAS SHIPPED WITH A SUBCOMPONENT (SLIDER) THAT MAY EXPERIENCE DEFORMATION. A MULTI-FUNCTION SWITCH WITH A DEFORMED SLIDER MAY MALFUNCTION CAUSING THE TURN SIGNAL, TAIL LIGHTS, HAZARD WARNING SIGNAL FLASHERS AND/OR BRAKE LIGHTS NOT TO ACTIVATE.

*
Consequence:
NON-FUNCTIONING LIGHTS COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

*
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE SWITCHES FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT AUGUST 15, 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT FORD MOTOR COMPANY CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP CENTER AT 1-866-436-7332.

can't hurt to check.

edit: in the link there's nowhere to call to find out if your truck qualifies, anyone know how to check? i'd rather not call a dealership again. last time i did that they kept calling me for weeks

It doesn't seem like 2004's are directly affected unless your switch has recently been replaced using a Ford replacement part. This recall so far is limited to select 2011 Rangers, and possibly the replacement switches as well.

Btw, this is a repost.

yeah But It was a original 2004 switch that broke and I dont have the part anymore. But I am worried the new switch might be covered by the recall. Oh well im gonna take it in soon for a Oil Change and Tire rotation (Normally do my own but i got a coupon for $20)

Hmm, they may update the recall later, just like they kept doing with the CC switch.

My 2008 Ranger may be affected. I never got a recall letter, but that doesn't mean anything. I will call my dealer soon, since I keep forgetting, and I will let others know the results. Lastly, I bought my 08' in August 07', and my build date is June 28th or July something. I'll double check that also.
