    The car is not under warranty any more it has 37,600 miles on it now. All Ford wants to do is charge to fix it. I am capable of fixing the problem but am worried about the saftey of my wife and kids. I just can not understand why a bulb could cause this problem. If you know any one who can help my number is 404-392-6740 and my name is Nate. Thanks

    There are many web sites devoted to tracking problems with new cars, Check the net, you can also call tour local state dept. of consumer affairs to get more info on other agencies that can help, enter your issue in search and see if any blogs come up, people talk about problems with cars, also there are Ford specific web sites for Ford owners, they are called Forums, they are free to join.I doubt that the car is going to burn down, most likely it was a fluke, but you need to do what makes you feel safe, and makes you feel safe for your loved ones.

    Could you please rate my help, thanks
