E-350 ABS Module -Its like a time bomb under the hood?

Batts ran down. Couldn't figure out why. On a trickle charger to bring the bats back up and after many hours of slow charging, I heard this loud electric motor sounding noise from the engine compartment. The ABS module was running like crazy and it had gotten as hot as a pistol. Humm, I now know why my batts ran down. So, a little research and sure enough, Ford issued a recall on these. Seems they have caught vans on fires too. Mines a 2003 and the recall I looked for was specific for that year. However, I did see a reference to 2004 as well. Something you Ford folks may want to research. The immediate fix was to pull the 30 AMP fuse from the power supply box in the engine compartment (WABS #19, if I recall correctly). Its going in this week for a new module.

Just to follow up. Ford warranted the module and all has been well since.
