Fuel Pump Driver Module

Okay, my car wasn't starting and I knew it wasn't getting fuel. I naturally assumed fuel pump. I looked here on the boards and found info about the "silent" 03N01 recall and figured I was good since the problems I was having fit the bill. They are replacing the pump, but they called they said that the fuel pump driver module was dead. Well, I looked at this before it went in to get fixed because a buddy of mine suggested checking to see if there was power gping to it. While check power with a multimeter, we took the cover off to find that the board was barely even attached to the housing. Today while doing a search, since the dealer says the module isn't covered under the 03N01 recall, I found this:

16226 2000-2002 FOCUS - INTERMITTENT ERRATIC GAUGE SWEEP, CRANK NO START, HARD START, AND VARIOUS OTHER ELECTRICAL AND/OR DRIVEABILITY CONDITIONS
SOME 2000-2002 FOCUS MAY EXHIBIT A GROUND RELATED CONDITION WITH INTERMITTENT ERRATIC GAUGE SWEEP, CRANK NO START, HARD START, AND VARIOUS OTHER ELECTRICAL AND/OR DRIVEABILITY CONDITIONS. INSPECT GROUNDS G1/G24/G41/G54 AND G56 FOR LOOSENESS OR CORROSION. ALSO, CHECK FOR A VOLTAGE DROP ACROSS THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE TO BOTH THE ENGINE BLOCK AND CHASSIS. G1 IS LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE AIR CLEANER, G24 IS LOCATED ON THE RIGHT HAND 'A' PILLAR (WIRING SCHEMATIC SECTION 700-06-00- 29 OR 30). G41 AND G56 ARE LOCATED AT THE FRONT RIGHT SIDE KICK PANEL INSIDE THE VEHICLE AND G54 IS LOCATED AT THE FUEL PUMP DRIVER MODULE RIGHT REAR UNDER THE SEAT.
EFFECTIVE DATE: 09/12/2002

16819 1999-2003 VARIOUS VEHICLES - NO CRANK, NO START
SOME 1999-2003 VEHICLES MAY EXHIBIT A NO CRANK, NO START CONDITION. THIS MAY BE DUE INADEQUATE TORQUE OF THE STARTER SOLENOID TERMINAL NUTS. TO SERVICE, CHECK THE INTEGRITY OF THE B+ TERMINAL AND S TERMINAL TORQUE. THE B+ TERMINAL NUT SHOULD BE TORQUED TO 12 +/- 1.8 NM AND THE S TERMINAL NUT SHOULD BE TORQUED TO 5.4 +/- 0.9 NM. IF THE CONCERN IS STILL PRESENT, CONTINUE WITH APPROPRIATE PC/ED DIAGNOSTICS.
EFFECTIVE DATE: 05/06/2003


Was this a part covered under yet another recall, or am I stuck footing the bill on this part? I'm rather sure that since the board was only attached to the housing at only one point that that had SOMETHING to do with it's demise(if it's really dead...I think it was just wasn't grounded). It's not like anyone other than the handfull of people that assembled the car ever touched it.
