Ford F-150 1997
Ford Motor Company
Safety incident date:
Apr 19, 1999
Location:
Warsaw, IN

the other day i was at a fast food drive up and my truck wouldn't shift out of park. i contacted my dealer and they told me how to get it to shift.they said oh your brake lights probably have been coming and going with this problem.also. the shift lock mechanism is integrated in the brake switch, and ford has had some trouble with wire fatigue at the brake light switch. so as i was having trouble with the shiftlock i was unknowingly driving at times with no brake lights. this comment was made directly from my ford dealer. i asked if there were any tsb's or recalls for the cond., he said it was a commen problem for years but ford wouldn't do anything unless enough people ratted them to some authority that would make them correct this wide spread problem. he told me that on earlier modles without shiftlock wouldn't even know that they had even lost there brake lights. i looked at the connection on my trucks brake switch and sure enough the wire had been made so short from the factory that every time you would hit the brake it was pulling on it and one of the two wires on my truck had broken. i can't believe that i had a problem with my brake lights when for two days i thought i had a problem with my shift linkage. if i would have been hit then who would have been at fault? in my opinion ford, i mean when my local dealer in warsaw in can tell me over the phone then how many people have been killed in the u.s. from not having brake lights and were totally unaware ford endangered my life and i will never buy another ford product as long as i live! i sure hope they save a buck if my dealer knows that there is a problem, then so does ford. it's a safty issue so where is the recall? thank you. tony johnson.
