The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced a recall affecting 456,565 units of select compact SUVs and pickup trucks manufactured by Ford in the United States. 

The recall is prompted by concerns over a loss of drive power from a low battery issue, posing potential safety risks.

Potential Consequences of Undetected Low Battery Charge:

The NHTSA warns that an undetected low battery charge may malfunction essential electrical accessories, such as hazard lights, in affected vehicles. 

Additionally, the loss of drive power poses safety hazards, necessitating prompt corrective action to mitigate potential accidents or operational failures.

The recall encompasses Bronco Sport SUVs produced between 2022 and 2024 and Maverick compact pickup trucks manufactured between 2022 and 2023. 

Ford owners are urged to verify their vehicle’s model and manufacturing year to determine if their vehicle is included in the recall.

Remedial Measures by Ford Dealerships:

Ford dealerships will conduct recalibrations on the affected vehicles’ body control and powertrain control modules at no cost to the owners. 

This corrective action aims to address the underlying issue and restore optimal performance, ensuring the vehicles’ safety and functionality.

The safety regulator emphasizes promptly addressing the recall to prevent potential safety hazards associated with low battery issues. 

Ford reaffirms its commitment to prioritizing customer safety and regulatory compliance by initiating proactive measures to rectify the identified concerns.
