3.7 million Ford trucks and SUVs are under investigation by the U.S. government for potential fire hazards.

Among the vehicles being investigated are Ford F-150 pickups from the 1995-1999 and 2001-2002 model years, and Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators from the 1997-1999 and 2001-2002 model years.

According to an Associated Press article,

“Agency officials said they have received 218 complaints of engine fires from the cruise control switch in those models. No injuries or fatalities have been reported.

The investigation of the popular vehicles does not include the 2000 model years of the trucks and SUVs, which was covered by recall in January of nearly 800,000 vehicles.”

Apparently the cruise control switch can short circuit leading to a fire in the engine compartment.

“We’ll continue to cooperate with the agency until the matter is closed,” said a Ford spokeswoman.
