Among the seven (7) recalls the NHTSA has announced this January comes news of the following:

Ford Motor Company has recalled an estimated 2,100 model year 2018 Ford Mustang vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and a 12.4″ digital instrument cluster. If the ignition is turned off when the transmission is not in PARK, the instrument cluster may not illuminate the PRNDL gear position display and the vehicle’s operator may not receive the “Key in Ignition” chime when the driver’s door is opened. As such, these vehicles fails to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 102, “Transmission Shift Lever Sequence/Starter Interlock/Transmission Braking Effect,” and number 114, “Theft Protection.”

According to the NHTSA, without a visual or audible warning to the driver that the vehicle is in PARK, the vehicle may roll away after it has been exited if the parking brake has not been applied, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.

What to do next? Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will update the instrument cluster software, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 5, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 17C21.
