Electrical & Lights, March 19, 2001

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled 2000-2001 Taurus vehicles with an spoiler mounted LED center high mounted stop lamp for an issue with proper illumination. Illumination may occur without applying the brake pedal. Also, the shift interlock may not function, causing the shifter not to require brake pedal application to get the vehicle out of "Park." These are both safety issues that can put the vehicle occupants in danger. Dealers will install a jumper and resistor assembly at the spoiler.
