Ford Issues Another Truck Recall, This Time On Larger Models

The recall affects 231,664 pickup trucks in the US and federal territories and 29,953 in Canada.

The first recall, which deals with a tailgate malfunction, affects 261,617 examples of 2017-2019 F-250, F-350, and F-450 Super Duty pickups.

Ford truck models with mechanical latches are not affected by the recall. Ford said water can get into the electrical wiring and cause a short circuit that will activate the switch and release the latches. The company says it has no reports of accidents or injuries.

Distributors will fix the wiring harnesses on the rear door frame and install a new rear door handle release switch. The trucks were built at Ford's Kentucky truck plant between October 8, 2015, and November 3, 2019. The recall reference number for the Aviators and Explorers is 19S49.

In other news, the 2020 Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator are being recalled - again. In some of the affected vehicles, a protective sleeve on the fuel line is too short and may allow contact with the vapor fuel line. Because of this condition, it is possible for hard contact with the "convolute-protected" vapor fuel line to occur. The recall is for a fuel line issue that could increase the risk of fire through leaking fuel. Ford said it's not aware of any injuries or fires related to this problem, however.

This action affects up to 231,664 vehicles in the United States and federalized territories, 29,953 in Canada. If the convolute does not cover the full length of the fuel line, dealers will remove the existing cover and replace it with one that is the correct length.
