F53 Cruise/Brake Recall Harness

We were made aware a while back about a recall safety harness to be fitted to the brake/cruise wireing on the F53.
As we live in the UK we are not having much luck finding a Ford dealer to do this recall.

Does anyone know a dealer in USA who would supply this harness so we could have it shipped so it can be fitted here in UK.

The harness could possibly be shipped to a USA address if it makes it easier to get one.

Thank you in advance for any help..

I believe all the recall harness does is place a fuse inline with the brake pressure switch. Perhaps some of the folks who have worked at Ford more recently than me can verify that. If so, wiring in a fuse wouldn't be hard at all. Of course that wouldn't be Ford approved, so if you still had an issue, it could create a mess.

This is the part number, if you Goggle it you will find several places to buy it, as low as $13 on E-Bay. FORD OEM GENUINE PARTS - WIRING HARNESS CONNECTOR - 8W7Z14A411C

You can also Google Ford recall 05S28 for info and instructions, there is also info on the permanent fix.

The final fix from Ford was a new pressure switch and wiring harness adaptor. I bought the Motorcraft kit off Amazon and installed it myself on my 1995 F53 chassis. It was cheaper than the gas I would have spent driving to the dealer and back. Sorry I can't give you a part number as my kit would be different from your 1999 chassis. You'll have to do a bit of research yourself.
Best of luck!

DANG! Looks like Brock's fast typing beat me to it.

The above part number is good for all models and years except a Lincoln.

Nick, curious was your connection right at the master cyl or elsewhere. Same wiring regardless just curious have not done mine yet.

No dealer should ever just send you the harness under the recall program. That can be a huge liability for the dealer. With them writing it up and closing out the recall they are saying a Ford certified tech performed the necessary inspections and correctly installed the harness. If a failure occurred and the fault was found to be in the installation they would be on the hook.

It appears they are just selling simple parts, and of course not associated to a VIN. I would assume once they were created as a recall fix, with a part number, they would also become a service parts item.

Yes any recall part will have a specific part number that anyone can buy. However there are a few exceptions to that. Recalls (and some other parts over the counter) that may involve ordering based on that specific VIN number. In some cases the part is ordered only after the VIN is summited to Ford. Some specialty parts also can only be ordered with a viable VIN. This is to keep those specialty parts from going vehicles that it was not original for. Certain Mustang parts and badging are high on that list.

Thanks all

Have got the harness, but the fittings were different. The brake switch has a curved plug , not flat sided. So changed the plug and its fitted, so atleast it has the twin fuses now.
