Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 10,655 model year 2020 Ford Explorer vehicles equipped with 2.3L or 3.3L engines marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

US NHTSA Safety Notification 19V685000 reports the wiring harness may not have been properly secured and may contact the air conditioner (“A/C”) compressor pulley, potentially damaging the harness or the A/C belt.

According to the NHTSA, the A/C pulley in the recalled vehicles may rub through the wiring harness insulation and contact the unfused battery positive wire, resulting in a short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.

Ford will notify registered owners and dealers will install a tie strap to the wiring harness at the hand shock tower clip, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 21, 2019. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Ford’s designation for this recall is 19S32.
