Recall 14V709000

Brake Lights Do Not Operate Properly

Recall Details

The brake light switch mounted on the brake pedal may not be adjusted properly, and may fail to illuminate the brake lights when the pedal is depressed. Dealers will adjust the brake pedal position switch free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The brake lights may not operate properly due to an improperly adjusted switch located on the brake pedal. This would cause the increased risk of an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your F150 must be performed by a Ford dealership. Ford notified known owners of affected vehicles beginning in November, 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ford dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Ford recall number is 14C09.
