I WAS DRIVING IN HEAVY TRAFFIC, ON A DOWNTOWN STREET, WHEN THE TRUCK SUDDENLY CUT OFF, LOOSING SOME BRAKING AND STEERING. THE TRUCK WOULD NOT RESTART. I PUSHED IT OUT OF THE TRAVEL LANES AND HAD IT TOWED TO MY FORD DEALER. THE DEALER FINDS A BURNT FUSE RECEPTACLE FOR THE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP. THEN I DISCOVER THEY HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, CREATED A REPAIR KIT, BUT FAILED TO NOTIFY OWNERS THIS IS HAPPENING. I WONDER, IF THE FUEL PUMP WIRING IS GETTING HOT ENOUGH TO MELT THE FUSE HOLDER, BUT NOT BLOWING THE FUSE, DOESN'T THIS CAUSE A PROBLEM, WHY ISN'T THE FUSE BLOWING?. IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE A FAULTY DESIGN AND NEEDS TO BE CORRECTED BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT, FROM FAILING TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL THE VEHICLE WITHOUT POWER, OR THE REASON THE FUSE IS GETTING HOT, SHOWS UP AND STARTS MELTING THE WIRING TO THE FUEL PUMP. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS, IT NEEDS TO BE RECALLED TO FIX THIS FAULTY DESIGN OR AT LEAST CONTACT THE OWNERS SO THEY COULD HAVE IT FIXED BEFORE THIS HAPPENS. FORDS FIX WAS TO REROUTE THE CIRCUIT TO ANOTHER STYLE FUSE, SO THEY KNOW, THE ORIGINAL DESIGN WILL NOT CARRY THIS CIRCUIT.
