Complaint - Electrical System

WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE STREET AT ROUGHLY 40 MPH, MY TRUCK ALL OF A SUDDEN JUST SHUT OFF. LOST POWER STEERING AND POWER BRAKES. ONCE OFF TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD I TRIED TO RESTART THE VEHICLE WITH NO LUCK. IT CONTINUED TO CRANK BUT WOULD NOT START. AFTER WAITING ROUGHLY 10 MINUTES I TRIED TO START IT ONE MORE TIME AND IT STARTED. I WAS ABLE TO GET THE TRUCK HOME WHERE I WAS ABLE TO START INVESTIGATING THE PROBLEM. WHILE SEARCHING THE INTERNET, I FOUND "TSB 15-0137" FROM FORD AS TO THE POSSIBLE PROBLEM. TO MY AMAZEMENT IT WAS THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM I HAD HAD. THE FACT THAT THIS IS A KNOWN PROBLEM THAT CAUSES THE ENGINE TO SHUT DOWN, A LOSS OF POWER STEERING, AND A LOSS OF POWER BRAKES AND IT'S NOT CONSIDERED A RECALL, ALONG WITH THE FACT THAT IT COULD CAUSE AN ELECTRICAL FIRE, IS MORE THAN DISTURBING.
