more info would be helpful do lights on steering wheel light up,airbag light,all of the sudden stop working? The most common is the pressure switch at the master cylinder under hood two wire toward front remove connector and if filled with brake fluid replace. Note call dealer for recall status this is a known problem and has been cause to start fire.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
