Ford and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration have announced the recall of 14,737 vehicles for a faulty body control module that may short out and cause a fire.
The recall covers certain 2011 models that were built in a six-day
period, including some 2011 Edge, F-150, F-250, F-350, F-450, F-550 and
Lincoln MKX vehicles. NHTSA says that if the body control module shorts
out, it could overheat and cause a fire.
Dealers are expected to inspect the module and, if necessary,
replace it free of charge. NHTSA says that Ford plans to start the work
on or before January 10, 2011, and that owners may contact Ford directly
with questions at (866) 436-7332.
