Ford is recalling 14,737 F-Series pickup trucks, the nation's best-selling vehicle, and Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers from the 2011 model year because of a defect in the body control module, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects 2011 F-150 pickups built between Nov. 3 and Nov. 20; 2011 F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 pickups built between Oct. 28 and Nov. 19; and 2011 Edge and MKX crossovers built between Oct. 25 and Nov. 3. You can check your car's manufacture date on the sticker inside the driver-side doorjamb.

In the affected vehicles, an electrical short may develop in the body control module and cause a fire.

Ford will start notifying owners Jan. 10. Dealers will replace the body control module if necessary for free. For more info, owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA's hot line at 888-327-4236.

So that means mine probably does as well.

Is this a big job?

Yours should be included in this recall, from what I understand they just need to inspect and circuit board for continuity. I think this was all due to some contamination in the sodering equipment that makes these things.
