It actually melted the wires and shorted the circuit board out. The circuit board is burnt and smells like and electrical fire. I own a business working on forklifts and industrial equipment. I have seen an electrical short and this is definately one I was trying to see if anyone else has had this problem

Re: 2005 Ford Five Hundred Problem
I have not seen this at all, your car is the first I have heard of it, I thought you only said the plastic was melted, but the fuse should have blown after reading your further comment. If you are still under warranty, raise cain

maybe you are having problem with the electronic throttle actuator that's the most common problem when you have those codes but to find out if that's the problem first you have to do some tests to the wiring to be sure that the wiring does no have a open or a short circuit
Melting the housing is not a short, it is a heat issue, so the fuse wouldn't have blown, could it have started a fire, maybe, I would call Ford's customer service number for Detroit and talk to them about your concerns over this problem, one d.... thing is for sure it should not have done what it did, period!
