Recall Alert: 2011 Ford F-Series Trucks

Sorry if this is a repost, but didn't see it up yet:

http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2010/12...-f-series.html
Ford is recalling 14,737 F-Series pickup trucks and chassis cabs 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 Super Duty trucks 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. The modules manage vehicle systems from vehicle stability to air conditioning. In this case, a common module is shared between the crossovers and trucks.
Ford says the faulty BCM was manufactured by Lear Corporation in Mexico. The problem was discovered after two F-150 pickups caught fire during manufacturing at Ford's Dearborn Assembly Plant in Michigan. An investigation found that a newly hired operator failed to properly clean a soldering machine during four production shifts from October 25, 2010, to October 30, 2010, resulting tn a small number of printed circuit boards with contaminants that could result in a short circuit in the BCM.
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.
