2010 Ford Ranger Recalls
An internal fault may develop within the multi-function turn signal switch. This can affect turn signal, tail, hazard, and/or brake light operation. Non-functioning exterior lights could increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the multi-function switch to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on August 15, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11C18.
The engine fuel line near the throttle body may contact the edge of the shield, chafing the fuel line. This can result in a fuel odor or leak, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will trim the throttle body shield and inspect and replace the fuel line as necessary. This recall is expected to begin on March 7, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11S17.
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. Without a functional parking brake, the vehicle may roll out of control when parked. Dealers will replace the right rear parking brake actuator with a revised unit.
