So the other night on my way home from work I went to use my cruise control and I discovered that it had stopped working. A few miles down the road I looked down at the dash and my temp guage magically was working (It has not moved above "C" since I have owned the truck)!!! Could the 2 be related??? I did take a look at the fuses and everything looks fine and my horn is working fine. The same symptoms have continued for several days...

Any thoughts?

i think it's just coincidence. Check the vss, your speedo and cruise control work off that sensor.
Also, ECT could be out, making your temp gauge not read.

Recall; Fused Jumper Harness (14A411) pic; "List price on this is ~$11 (as of the date I posted the pic), but it will be installed at NO CHARGE (parts or labor) on vehicles covered by the recall. Even though the label is wrong about the fuse being internal, it should still NEVER be replaced. If it blows, it means the brake pressure switch is leaking, and (as the label states) should be replaced with the new switch & adapter harness kit, listing for ~$20 right now..."

Someone here in FSB had a fire due to da leaky switch lately; think it was in past 2 weeks.

Just go to www.fordowner.com to find out about recalls. After contacting Fordowner.com and filing a claim they passed it on to the claims group @ FORD to be reviewed. Once the group reviewed my claim then someone got in touch with me, I have to mail copys of my title, bill of sale, ect. and copy's of photos of the damage to her. She said that the dealer dose not have parts for vehicles 10 years and older so I have to get my local shop to replace the master cylinder and the wires that were effected by the break fluid and their labor cast, she will cut me/the shop a check and then after the work is done then the dealer will look it over to make sure the truck and the work is up-to-date. All this to fix something that at most costs $200. WTF..."

Call your dealer anyway; have the VIN ready.

DO NOT PARK Next to a Home or in a garage until it's fixed.
