Four days before our family vacation, the computer in my wife's Explorer crapped out and will not send the electrical signal to the fuel pump to send gas to start then engine. The solution, replace the computer since it is not an actual problem any mechanical parts, just the computer telling them to work. Under normal circumstances, $750 and fixed. Except, that the Ford plant that makes the computers has been shut down for four months and has no ETA on reopening. Even if they reopened today, there is supposedly a back order list of 1000+ people ahead of me and no guarantee that they would even make it because the Explorer is a 2006 and a company is only required to make OEM replacement parts for vehicles less than 10 years old. It only has 135K on it and I may have to replace it, not because there is anything truly mechanical wrong with it, but because of a freakin computer!
