My E-350 was recalled for the cruise control fused wiring harness refit. Now, I have intermittent, uncontrollable high throttle settings that I cannot deactivate with the cruise control. It is as if the cruise control is trying to accelerate the engine to high rpm with no input from the driver. It is a very dangerous and scary situation. No matter what driver input, the cruise control will not deactivate. Full brake pedal application, and ignition deactivation are the only overrides. The engine revs to high rpm even when in park.

Do you drive a 1999 FORD E-350?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
