Switch malfunction is most likely to occur when the intermittent setting of the wipers is being used, or when snow or ice obstructs the blades from returning to the "parked" position at the bottom of the windshield. These vehicles were built at the following assembly plants: Atlanta plant from 2/11/00 through 7/31/00; Chicago plant from 2/14/00 through 8/4/00; Kansas City plant from 2/26/00 to 9/4/00; Kentucky truck plant from 2/18/00 to 8/31/00; Michigan truck plant from 2/23/00 through 8/3/00; Norfolk plant from 2/21/00 through 7/27/00; Wayne Stamping and Assembly plant from 2/25/00 through 8/15/00; and Wixom plant from 2/...

The manufacturer reported that owner notification would begin during September 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.
