Ford is recalling certain 2011 F-150, F-250, F-350, F-450, F550, Edge, and Lincoln MKX vehicles due to a possible internal electrical short in the throttle body control module.

Body, Interior & Misc., November 1, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

During assembly the electronic module settings were not configured correctly. As a result, the locking function of the rear liftgate will not work as designed.

Suspension & Steering, October 20, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford is recalling 1998–2003 Windstar models manufactured or registered in twenty-two Eastern and Midwestern states due to corrosion on the rear axle, which makes it susceptible to torsional stress. This can cause the axle to crack, and even break entirely, which can affect vehicle handling and increase the risk of a crash. Dealers in the affected states will inspect and potentially install rear axle reinforcement brackets, free of charge. For a list of the affected U.S. states, call Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

The park rod guide retention pin may not have been properly installed in nineteen vehicles. These vehicles may not properly engage the transmission in the "Park" position. If  this occurs and the parking brake is not set, unintended vehicle movement may result, increasing the risk of a crash. This recall is expected to begin by May 28, 2010. The Ford recall number is 10C12.

For Models: Ford Ranger

Brakes, May 21, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 2010 Ranger trucks equipped with a manual transmission because the parking brake cable may become detached from the right rear actuator.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 2010 model year Ford Explorer, Explorer Sport Trac, Fusion, and Fusion Hybrid vehicles along with Mercury Mountaineer, Milan, and Milan Hybrid vehicles for an issue with the front seat backs equipped with manual recliner mechanisms. In the event of a crash, the seat back and head restraint may move rearward, increasing the risk of injury. This is due to incorrect specification in the design of the gear plate teeth on the seat back recliner. Dealers will replace the manual recliners free of charge.

For Models: Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator

Brakes, July 1, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 2009 Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles because the brake light switch may be improperly adjusted. The brake lights may fail to light up, which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will adjust the brake light switch to the proper position.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford is recalling sixty-five 2008–2009 E-350 and 2009 E-450 cutaway models equipped with school bus prep packages for failing to comply with federal safety standards on fuel system integrity. The vehicles may not have been assembled with fuel tank protection brackets, which can cause the fuel tank to leak if a crash occurs. In the presence of an ignition source, this could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect and install brackets free of charge.

For Models: Ford F-150

Electrical & Lights, May 13, 2009

Dealers will remove and reinstall the brake stop lamp switch, adjusting the position.
