Well I went to the local Ford dealer and did the coffee and dounut thing while waiting for the shuttle home. It took them four hours and it was ALL covered by warranty. First the removed the multi-function switch and tested it. Came back as fine. Then they found an "alert" from Ford that "water intrusion" issues in the motors has been documented in the Expo's and some Lincolns. So they replaced the motor.
