Ford Recalls Certain Model Year 2005 – 2006 F 150 Vehicles

Washington, D.C.—(ENEWSPF)—February 26, 2011.

Summary: Ford is recalling certain model year 2006 and 2006 F-150 vehicles manufactured at the Norfolk assembly plan from November 1, 2004 through June 30, 2005.  If the cockspring jumper wire comes in contact with the drive side frontal air bag lower horn plate, the wire insulation may become chafed, creating a potential for a short circuit.  If this occurs the air bag warning lamp may illuminate indicating that service is required.

Consequence: The driver side frontal air bag could inadvertently deploy increasing the risk of injury or control loss if occurring while the vehicle is in motion.

Remedy: Ford will notify owners and instruct them to take their vehicles to a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealers to have a new clockspring jumper wire installed that incorporates a protective mesh cover.  Repairs will be performed free of charge.  The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or about February 28, 2011.  Owners may contact Ford Motor Company Customer Relationship Center at 1-866-436-7332.

Notes: Ford’s Recall Campaign Number is 11S18.  Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov
