(KSL News) The Ford Motor Company is recalling millions of its vehicles because of a cruise control switch.
Ford says the switch could overheat or start burning and the company has received reports of some car fires. The recall covers three and one half million cars, trucks, SUVs and vans.
The Ford vehicles being recalled are F-Series and Ranger pickup trucks, Explorer, Bronco and Mountaineer SUVs, Econoline vans and some Crown Victoria, Town Car, Grand Marquis, Capri, Mark VII and Taurus Sho cars with model years ranging from 1992 to 2004, depending upon the particular vehicle.
Ford dealers will install a fused wiring harness to fix the problem.
