recall???

was there a recall for 97 f250 for the anti lock brake sensor, catching fire? I cant remember if there was one or not. If there was one can you please post the link for me.



When I came out of work yesterday i was letin the truck warm up and cleaning somethings up in it and smelled someting funny burning. I popped the hood and the whole connector was on fire and melted the resivor tank and started the hood material on fire as well. As a member of the fire dept I wasnt going to call, that would look really good, a member buring his own truck. It was a really good thing i was standing there with it.


Thanks

when I took my truck in for the CPS recall, I asked if there were any other recalls, specifically the brake switch, and was told that the diesels were not covered by that recall, and that the switch carried a different part number.

They are not expensive. My cruse went out and replacing that switch fixed it. I guess Im the lucky one that truck didnt burn up.
