 Description of the problemAfter stopping in traffic and waiting to turn left in front of oncoming traffic, the truck would not steer as i accelerated from a stop. This caused me to drive straight across the intersection into oncoming traffic rather than making my planned, immediate left turn. As the truck drove straight rather than turning, and as i was attempting to force the wheel left with both hands, suddenly the steering function returned to normal. I narrowly avoided an accident due to the unexpected loss of steering control. I immediately stopped the truck and contacted the service department at the nearest ford dealership. A service appointment was not available until the following week so i drove the truck home. The next day (saturday) a service adviser from the ford dealer called and asked me to drop the truck off the following monday afternoon. I have been able to duplicate the problem since the initial incident. In my opinion the issue may be related to the improper function of the power steering after the stop /start function of the truck is activated. There is a measurable lag between the engine's re-start and the reactivation of the power steering. The truck is allowed to travel before the power steering is functioning normally. I feel this is a very serious safety issue and needs to be corrected.
