A 2001+ Ranger has the Deactivation Switch regardless of whether it has speed control or not.

I just got my recall letter yesterday. It was Dated Oct 3 and sent from Oakville, Ontario.

I like how it states that the parts to correct this issue are in short supply and that if the dealership does not have the parts in stock, that I should go in and they'll disconnect the SCDS free of charge and will book me in when the parts are in.

I'll just phone and see if they have the part in stock and if they can do it today. I use my cruise control and haven't had a problem yet. Only Ranger I heard of burning was that member on here that had all that electrical equipment attached in with his battery.

Mind you, it does say "certain 1992-2004 vehicles equipped with speed control".

I got a notice last week. Just got my 10000k service done, so I handed the letter to the advisor. He kind of scratched his head for a second. Enjoy your new off switches!

They never expire. If the vehicle never gets it done, it will always need it. Any accidents that result from non-compliant recall orders are not covered by insurance or law suits. So just make sure you get all your recalls done.

They're free of charge anyway.

what about a 2000 ranger without speed control?

This is one reason I dont really like fords....they tend to burn. Seems that several recalls from ford have to do with fire. I know it can happen to any vehicle, but it seems most common with fords.

My information says that Rangers before 2001 only had the Deactivation Switch if they were equipped with cruise control. The best way to know for sure on your 2000 is to check the front nose of the brake master cylinder. If there is a small pressure switch there with LG/RD and BK/YE wires, then you have the DS. If not, then you don't. (Those color codes are for a 2000 Ranger. Other years and models may be different.)

The fire risk is the unfortunate combination of a defective Texas Instruments switch, a high capacity fuse and the Ford wiring that is hot to one side of the switch at all times.
