Ford F-150 Recalls
Certain vehicles may have been assembled with a transmission range sensor (TRS) that was calibrated out of specification for reverse gear. If this condition exists, the transmission may not properly engage reverse gear and/or if reverse gear does engage, the "R" indicator on the dash or the backup lamps may not illuminate. These conditions increase the risk of a crash or a pedestrian being struck due to the vehicle's not signaling it is in reverse. Dealers will inspect and replace the transmission range sensor as necessary to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12C23.
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.
The brake/shift interlock can fail, allowing the transmission to be shifted into park without depressing the brake pedal. If the transmission were shifted into gear without depressing the brake pedal, a crash or injury to a nearby pedestrian could result. Dealers will inspect the brake shift interlock switch function and replace the switch if necessary.
