Ford announces three new North America recalls

Ford has announced three new recalls in North America affecting 2020 Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles, some 2019-20 Mustangs and 2014-2017 Transit Connect vans.

Ford has announced three new recalls in North America affecting 2020 Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles, some 2019-20 Mustangs and 2014-2017 Transit Connect vans.

Affected 2020 Expedition and Navigator vehicles have nonfunctioning Pre-Collision Assist features, including Forward Collision Warning, Dynamic Brake Support and Automatic Emergency Braking and this condition may prevent notifications to the driver indicating the features are inoperative. An inoperative Pre-Collision Assist system may not detect or reduce the risk or severity of a frontal collision and could increase the risk of an injury or crash if the driver is relying on assistance from the system.

This affects only vehicles equipped with the standard camera-only Pre-Collision Assist system – 25,081 in the US and federal territories and 1,106 in Canada.

Affected vehicles were built at Kentucky Truck Plant:

  • 2020 Ford Expedition vehicles built April 16, 2019, to March 20, 2020
  • 2020 Lincoln Navigator vehicles built July 15, 2019, to March 19, 2020

Dealers will reprogramme the body control module, antilock braking system, instrument panel cluster and headlamp control modules with the appropriate software calibration. Reprogramming will also require a tyre pressure monitor system reset.

In some 2019-20 Mustang and 2019 Expedition vehicles, the "transmission not in park" warning message and associated chime are only active for three seconds when the transmission is not in park, the ignition is off, and the driver's door is closed. The chime should remain active for 10 seconds and the transmission not in park warning message should display for 30 minutes when the driver's door is closed.

A transmission not in park warning and chime with a shorter than designed duration could result in the driver exiting the vehicle when it is not in park and experiencing unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of injury or crash.

That recall affects 10,460 vehicles in the US and federal territories, 158 in Canada and 17 in Mexico. They include:

  • 2019-20 Ford Mustang vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant April 26 to Oct. 10, 2019
  • 2019 Ford Expedition vehicles built at Kentucky Truck plant Oct. 16, 2018, to Oct. 13, 2019

Dealers will reprogramme the instrument panel cluster.

Some 2014-17 Transit Connect vehicles equipped with the panoramic vista roof may have an improper bond between the panoramic roof and the vehicle body that could result in wind noise, water leaks and, in some cases, separation from the vehicle.

This recall affects 5,088 vehicles in the US and federal territories and 45 in Canada.

Affected vehicles were built at Valencia Assembly Plant, July 17, 2014, to Oct. 1, 2016.

Dealers will remove, clean and reinstall the panoramic roof glass on affected vehicles.
