2001 Ford F 150 Front Three Quarter
Both Ford and Audi are having issues with fuel tanks -- the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating Ford’s F-150 pickups from 1997 to 2001 for a possible corrosion of the straps holding the fuel tank in place under the vehicle; Audi has just issued a recall for the possible corrosion within the fuel tank on V-8-equipped 2001 to 2004 A6, S6, and RS6 vehicles. NHTSA is also looking into a possible recall of the 2004 to 2004 Mini Cooper over loss of power steering that could encompass 60,000 vehicles.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Summary
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH HALOGEN LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS, CERTAIN CONNECTOR PINS IN THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH CONNECTOR COME INTO CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER CAUSING A SHORT CIRCUIT. NOTE: VEHICLES WITH XENON LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS ARE NOT AFFECTED BECAUSE THE CIRCUIT IN THESE VEHICLES CONTAINS A FUSE, WHICH PRECLUDES EXCESSIVE CURRENT FLOW IN THE CASE OF A SHORT CIRCUIT. AUDI S6 AND S6 AVANT VEHICLES ARE ALL EQUIPPED WITH XENON LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS AND, THEREFORE, ARE NOT LONGER AFFECTED BY THIS RECALL.
Consequences
THIS CONDITION COULD LEAD TO OVERHEATING OR FIRE.
Remedy
