MICHIGAN: RECALL FOR PICKUPS AND S.U.V.'S The Ford Motor Company is recalling nearly 800,000 pickups and sport utility vehicles because the cruise control switch could short-circuit and cause a fire under the hood, the company said. The recall affects about 792,000 Ford F-150 pickups, Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators from the 2000 model year. Also affected are 2001 F-Series Supercrew trucks that were made at the same time. Ford will notify owners of the recall in February, and dealers will deactivate the cruise control switch until the company has enough replacement switches. (AP)
