Among the 42 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”) has recalled an estimated 131,068 model year 2015-2019 Ford F-150 and 2017-2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty, F-350 Super Duty, F-450 Super Duty and F-550 Super Duty pick-up trucks equipped with an engine block heater and previously remedied under recall 18V894. During a repair as a result of a previous recall, the block heater cable’s splice connector may have been damaged.

According to the NHTSA, a damaged cable could cause a resistive short, increasing the risk of overheated or melted wiring, increasing the risk of a fire.

Ford will notify registered owners and dealers will disable the engine block heater from being used. When replacement cables become available, a second notice will be mailed and dealers will replace the engine block heater cord, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 22, 2019. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s designation for this recall is 19S11.
