Recall 18V213000

Transmission Shift Lever Indicator Shows In Park Gear When Not Securely In Park

Recall Details

A roll pin may not have been installed as needed during transmission manufacturing, allowing the vehicle to roll away when shifted into the park gear. Dealers will inspect the transmission to make sure it has the roll pin and will install one if it is missing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The transmission may be missing an important roll pin during manufacturing, resulting in the vehicle not being securely in the park gear when it is selected. This would allow the vehicle to roll away unexpectedly if the parking brake is not applied, increasing risk of injury and a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Ford must be performed by a Ford dealership. Ford will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in April, 2018. If you do 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 incomplete 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 18S09.
