Incorrect software for the occupant classification system module (OCSM) may have been installed on certain vehicles. Under certain driving conditions, the OCSM may misclassify the passenger seat occupant such that the passenger side airbag does not deploy when it should, does not deploy as intended, or deploys when it should not. Failure in any of these ways will increase the risk of injury to the passenger seat occupant. Dealers will replace the OCSM to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12S31.

General Motors and Ford are NOT involved in this recall.
A seal in the wiring harness connector to the passenger side wiper motor may be missing.

Dealers will inspect, and if necessary, clean and properly seal the electrical connector for the passenger side windshield wiper motor. Any inoperative motors will be replaced. The Ford recall number is 12S29.

Owners will be advised to park their vehicles outside until repairs can be made. The Ford recall number is 11S24.

The Ford recall number is 11S23.
