How can I find out if other vehicle issues are some how related to the air bag recall, before I spend my own money for repairs? the issues I am hvng are in the vacinity of the air bags. Specifically the blend door and air conditioner.

The vehicle was in motion, I was driving along the highway when I heard a loud ticking noise coming from behind the glove box. I do not know if the ticking noise has anything to do with the air bags but the ticking noise is defintely coming from the passenger air bag location. I have not had a repair technician diagnose the trouble because I don't want to pay for repairs if it is an air bag issue.

While trying to start my 07 Ford Ranger it lost most of its power all of a sudden. The only power I can get is on auxiliary (turning the key back) but even then all I get are wipers, dome light and radio. Then when I turn the key off the fuse boxes make a ticking noise. After testing all fuses and connections I found that out of 56 total fuses (both under the hood and in the cab) all the fuses were ok but 24 of the connections weren't receiving power. I can understand blowing fuses and maybe even a few connections but to lose that much power at once doesn't seem right. I've also found that there have been a few reports for Ford 2007 electrical problems but after calling Ford customer service dept. They claim that there is no problem (and the local dealership wanted to rape me for $1000 without even looking at it) I figured someone needs to find out what's wrong with the electrical system before someone does get seriously hurt.

On 10-07-2007 my 2007' Ford Ranger pick up burned up in a fire that started on the inside of the passenger side where the air bag was. Also the right kick panel was also burned. Up. the fire dept. Came out put the fire out and told us. There was another Ford truck that they owned which did the same thing, I called the dealership where I bought two brand new Ford trucks both of them are Ford Ranger P/U and told them that I wanted them to loan us a car and check out the Ford Ranger that we still own the service lady said that all they would do is take a quick look at it and bring it in on a sat. Am. they don't care we are worried that this other Ford Ranger is going to do the same thing my wife almost died because just right after she got out of the truck on the passenger side the air bag blew out and it was on fire the fire man said it would had killed my wife if she would have had been still setting in that truck. The dealerships name is (matthews-currie Ford) in nokomis fl. Phone #941-488-6787. Please look in to this matter. Before someone dies in one of these trucks!!! thank you.
