Among the thirty two (32) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 135,725 model year 2019-2020 F-150 vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V805000 reports the fastener securing the Power Distribution Box (“PDB”) 12V cable and Battery Monitoring System (“BMS”) eyelets to the positive battery terminal may loosen and affect the vehicle’s systems such as instrument panel displays and braking or steering assist. The engine could also stall.

According to the NHTSA, inoperative vehicle systems or an engine stall can increase the risk of a crash. Reduced braking and steering efforts increases the risk of a crash. This condition could also create a resistive short, increasing the risk of a fire.

Ford will notify registered owners and dealers will inspect the positive battery cable/BMS/PDB joint for excess sealant adhesive and remove any excessive adhesive, reassemble the joint, and retorque the fastener, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 25, 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 19S40.
