Vehicles sold or currently registered in states using corrosive chemicals to de-ice the roads may have fuel tank straps that can rust prematurely and fail. If the fuel tank were to shift as a result of a broken strap, a fuel leak could develop, increasing the risk of a fire.
This should be considered a high priority recall. One or both fuel tank straps could fail without warning. Please contact your Ford or Lincoln dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
Wires in the steering wheel could be damaged, causing the driver's air bag to deploy without warning. Injury or loss of vehicle control may occur if the air bag deploys unexpectedly.
In early April 2011, this recall has been expanded to include more F-150 models in the 2005-2006 year range of the original recall. Some 2004 F-150 and 2006 Lincoln Mark LT vehicles have also been added. The recall of the additional models is scheduled to begin by May 9, 2011.
