WHILE DRIVING TO WORK TODAY, AND MAKING A RIGHT HAND TURN, MY VEHICLE COMPLETELY SHUT OFF. THAT IS, THE ENGINE DIED, THE POWER STEERING DIED, AND THE BRAKES DIED WHILE THE TRUCK CAME TO A COMPLETE STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LANE. LET ME REITERATE - THE TRUCK COMPLETELY DIED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD AND THERE WAS A COMPLETE LOSS OF CONTROL OVER THE VEHICLE. HAD THERE BEEN ANOTHER VEHICLE, OBJECT, OR PERSON IN FRONT OF ME, I WOULD HAVE LIKELY COLLIDED WITH THEM (THANKFULLY THE ROAD WAS EMPTY) RESEARCH HAS LEAD ME TO FIND THAT THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH FORD AND THE F150 SERIES FROM YEARS 2010 TO APPROXIMATELY 2014. FUSE NUMBER 27 IN THE ENGINE FUSE BOX IS UNDERSIZED FROM THE FACTORY AND MELTS DUE TO THE INABILITY TO HANDLE THE AMPERAGE. I FOUND MINE MELTED AFTER TODAY AS WELL. FORD HAS "ADDRESSED" THIS ISSUE WITH A TSB (FORD TSB-15-0137 SEE ATTACHED) WHICH IT CHARGES CUSTOMERS FOR TO REPLACE THE FUSE AND WIRING FOR THE FUSE WITH A NEW, UP SIZED FUSE AND WIRES. THEY DO NOT COVER THIS FREE OF CHARGE UNLESS YOUR TRUCK IS UNDER WARRANTY. AS THIS IS A GLARING SAFETY ISSUE THAT NUMEROUS PEOPLE HAVE REPORTED, I ASK THAT THE NHTSA INVESTIGATE THIS AND HAVE FORD INITIATE A RECALL ON THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, AND MAKE THE REPAIR FREE OF CHARGE TO CUSTOMERS. THIS ISSUE IS A MANUFACTURING FLAW AND ONE THAT HAS THE ABILITY TO CAUSE LOSS OF LIFE AND PROPERTY DUE TO FAILURE TO CONTROL THE VEHICLE.
