Ford Windstar Cruise Control Switch-On October 26, 2009, Ford Motor Company recalled 4.5 million vehicles to repair cruise control deactivation switches. It has been estimated that well over 500 fires have been caused by the faulty cruise control switch, many of them resulting in injury and, in some cases, death. Apparently this recall comes on the heels of a 2008 recall for the same problem. Apparently Ford has now recalled over 14 million vehicles to install a fused harness which Ford believes will prevent further problems with the cruise control deactivation switch.
