00V210001: SPEED CONTROL CABLE & SPEED CONTROL SERVO

NHTSA RECALL BULLETIN


Reference Number(s): 00V210001

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION
Model(s): 2001 Ford Escape

Campaign No: 00V210001

Mfg. Campaign No: 00S18

Number of Affected Vehicles: 1193

Beginning Date of Manufacture: 2000 JAN

Ending Date of Manufacture: 2000 JUL

Sport utility vehicles equipped with speed control.

DESCRIPTION OF DEFECT
The speed control cable can have a cracked or missing speed control cable servo cap locating tab. The locating tab could enter the servo clutch cavity and interfere with the speed control servo clutch. Also, water could enter those units that contain a cracked or missing servo cap locating tab, eventually causing corrosion that could interfere with the function of the speed control.

CONSEQUENCE OF DEFECT
If either of these conditions occurs and the speed control is used, the speed control could prevent the throttle from returning to idle, resulting in a stuck throttle. A stuck throttle could result in a crash.

CORRECTIVE ACTION
Dealers will inspect the speed control cables. Vehicles with speed control cables from cavities 3 and 4 will have the cable the speed control servo replaced.
