The automatic transmission may unexpectedly and suddenly shift into first gear, regardless of vehicle speed. This could cause the vehicle to jerk and slow without warning and lock the rear tires causing them to slide without warning. This could result in a loss of vehicle control and injury.
Recalls on your Ford or Lincoln must be performed by a Ford or Lincoln dealership. Ford will begin notifying known owners of affected vehicles in May, 2016. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ford or Lincoln dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Ford recall number is 16S19.
On certain vehicles, the transmission may not properly engage reverse gear; or, if reverse gear does engage, the "R" indicator on the dash or the backup lamps may not illuminate due to a faulty transmission range sensor.
Ford will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning June 25, 2012. If you are experiencing problems with the transmission shifter and/or related lighting, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
Certain vehicles may have a brake/shift interlock problem that allows the transmission to be shifted out of park without pressing the brake pedal.
Ford will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning December 19, 2011. If you are experiencing problems with the transmission shift interlock, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer.
