Additional information:

Among the thirty eight (38) recalls the NHTSA announced this February comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 166,196 model year 2018-2020 F-150 Pick-up Trucks equipped with high series LED headlamps with Autolamp (On/Off) functionality marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V097000 reports the Daytime Running Lamps (“DRL”) may remain activated instead of dimming to parking lamps when the Master Lighting Switch (“MLS”) is manually rotated from the “Autolamps” switch position to “Headlamps On.” As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment.”

According to the NHTSA, Daytime Running Lamps that cannot dim may reduce the visibility of other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will reprogram the body control module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 9, 2020. Owners may contact Ford Customer Service toll-free at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s designation for this recall is 20C03.

You may also contact the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline toll-free at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) during normal business hours, Eastern Standard Time, or visit https://www.safercar.gov/.
