My insurance company sent out an independent fire investigator with 40+
years of experience. He says the cruise control deactivation switch caused
the fire. The responding fire department stated the fire started in the
area of the master cylinder,(where the CCDS is located). These fires
follow a specific burn pattern. When we filed our report with NHTSA the
man we spoke with described the damage to our truck to a tee, BEFORE we
told him anything other than our than our 98 F150 had burned.
I'm going with the experts on this one as to the cause of the fire.
