Ford is recalling nearly 800,000 pickups and sport utility vehicles.
The auto maker says the cruise control switch could short circuit and cause a fire under the hood. Certain 2000 year model Ford F-150's, Ford Expeditions, Lincoln Navigators and 2001 F-150 Supercrew vehicles are affected.
Ford will notify owners of the recall in February, when dealers will deactivate the cruise control switch. The company will also notify owners when dealers get a replacement switch in stock.
