Ford Recalls Approximately 313,000 Cars to Replace Lighting Control Module
Ford has issued a safety recall affecting approximately 313,000 2003-2005 Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis vehicles to replace a lighting control module.
Ford revealed in a press note that the solder joints on the lighting module could crack and interrupt power to the headlamps, which increases the risk of a crash at night. The automaker says that it is aware of 11 reports of accidents caused because of this fault along with a report of minor injury related to this issue.
The safety recall affects 312,814 vehicles including certain 2003-2005 Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis vehicles built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from October 3, 2001 through August 2, 2005. Out of the 312,814 vehicles, 296,004 are in the United States and federalized territories, 14,714 in Canada and 2,096 in Mexico.
Dealers will carry out the replacement of the lighting control module at no cost to the customer.
The automaker has also issued safety recall for certain 2016 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles to replace rear air brake chamber and safety recall for certain 2015 Ford Transit dual-rear-wheel vehicles to replace rear axle shafts.
In case of the air brake chamber, the air brake jounce hoses could contact the vehicle’s rear axle housing during vehicle operation, which could cause a leak and inadvertent application of the parking brake or diminished braking performance – increasing the risk of a crash. Affected vehicles include certain 2016 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles built at Ohio Assembly Plant, June 18, 2015 through Nov. 15, 2015...READ MORE
