Ford recalled 3.6 million passenger cars, trucks, sport-utility vehicles and vans to fix a cruise control switch that led to previous recalls based on reports of fires.
Ford said the recall covered more than a dozen models built from 1992 to 2004. The company said it was responding to concerns from owners about the safety of their cars and questions about the speed-control deactivation switch, which is powered at all times.
Ford spokesman Dan Jarvis said the company received “a few reports of fires” in Crown Victoria passenger cars before the recall. He did not provide a precise number.
