Still waiting on my to burst into flames and take most of the campus down with it.
After waiting what I thought was a suffcient time, I gave the local(to where I got to school) Ford dealer a call. Parts are now on back order. They still have you come in though for a 5 minute procedure.
The procedure consists of disconnecting the switch, wrapping some electrical tape around the connector. You also get a piece of paper stating this was done. I went and had them do it just for documentation purposes. They will also mail a letter stating they have recieved the parts.
So for those that are unable to get the parts, I'd call and have this done just so you have the paperwork to cover you butt.
Description on my Workorder states "Perform Recall 05S28 / Speed Control Deactivation Switch".
Wow that sucks. I couldn't live without it. Also, knowing that the buttons on the steering wheel don't work would drive me crazy. I'd just leave it in.
