Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—May 10, 2012.
Summary: Ford is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 ford F-150, 2012 Expedition and Lincoln Navigator, and 2012-2013 Mustang vehicles, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard Nos. 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect" and 108 “Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment.” these vehicles may have a transmission range sensor (TRS) that was calibrated out of specification for reverse gear.
Consequence: If this condition exists, the transmission may not go into reverse or when the driver pushes the shift lever in the reverse “R” position and the vehicle’s transmission does go in reverse, the “R” may not illuminate on the dashboard of the F-150, expedition, or Navigator models and/or the backup lamp on the rear of the F-150, Expedition, Navigator, or Mustang vehicles may not illuminate. These conditions increase the risk of a crash or a pedestrian being struck due to the vehicle’s not signaling it is in reverse.
Remedy: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the TRS as necessary, free of charge. The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or about June 25, 2012. Owners may contact Ford Motor Company Customer Relationship Center at 1-866-436-7332.
