I have a question. If I go to a Ford dealer and have something like this done and tell them not to flash my PCM, are they liable for it if it is flashed? I'd hate to have $300+ in custom programming flashed away.
It's a qiuck & easy recall. I've done tons of em' already where I work. It takes at most half an hr. Basically we remove the "new" style brake on/off switch, & install the "old" style one again. Tried & true! Sometimes trying to bulid a better "mouse trap" doesn't get you anywhere!!!
I would have it done. I was on a trip and the cruise wouldn't stay on then the brake lights stuck on and drained the battery. I was staying across the street from a dealership and they fixed it in about 15 inutes no charge.
It's for late model G4s. The early ones are affected. The brake switch got redesigned and it caused more problems than it did good so they are putting in the old design brake switches in it's place. Also, there's a air filter recall because it could catch on fire.
I heard about the air filter recall. But all they said was that they had to replace the filter. I told them I just replaced it when I changed the oil. I got a Fram. They didn't say it could catch on fire. How is that possible? And will the Fram do the same thing?
