2011 Ford F-150 RecallsAutomatic Transmission Shifts To First Gear Unexpectedly
The vehicle's automatic transmission may shift unexpectedly and suddenly into first gear while driving, which can result in a loss of vehicle control, sudden slowing of the vehicle and possible transmission damage. Dealers will reprogram the powertrain control module with updated software free of charge to resolve the concern.
Certain vehicles may have been assembled with a transmission range sensor (TRS) that was calibrated out of specification for reverse gear. If this condition exists, the transmission may not properly engage reverse gear and/or if reverse gear does engage, the "R" indicator on the dash or the backup lamps may not illuminate. These conditions increase the risk of a crash or a pedestrian being struck due to the vehicle's not signaling it is in reverse. Dealers will inspect and replace the transmission range sensor as necessary to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12C23.
The brake/shift interlock can fail, allowing the transmission to be shifted into park without depressing the brake pedal. If the transmission were shifted into gear without depressing the brake pedal, a crash or injury to a nearby pedestrian could result. Dealers will inspect the brake shift interlock switch function and replace the switch if necessary.
