Summary: On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, due to the use of incorrect material by a supplier, the headlamp switch knob can fracture and separate from the headlamp switch. This would cause difficulty for the driver to activate the headlamps, which could affect driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Dealers will replace the headlamp switch knob. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on March 26, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
