there was a recall on the overdrive button or somethin like that, but it caused the trucks to catch on fire... im not to sure if that was it but it might be worth lookin into.

no this is not from brake switch recall will get pics in morning, but there is white stuff all over the HPOL not sure if a chemical reaction caused it during the fire, but the only damage i see is needs new hpop line, and fix burnt wire, looks to me like the yellow wire from the glow plug relay may have been rubbing on the oil line and just wore through the insulation and the hot wire burnt through the oil line when i turned the key on and ignited the oil,
