Ford Recalls Pickups and SUVs for Loose Cables

Published on January 2nd, 2020

Ford recently issued two safety recalls that are impacting nearly 228,000 F-150 pickup trucks and Lincoln MKX vehicles. This recall is due to loose cables that may cause stalling or engine fires.

Specifically, over 165,000 2019 and 2020 F-150 models were recalled because of concerns regarding loose cables that may impact certain key systems, including power braking, steering assist malfunctions or instrument panel display malfunctions. In addition, engines could stall or there could be a risk of a fire due to electrical shortages.

Notifying Owners

Owners began notifying drivers on November 25th. While they are not aware of any accidents or injuries regarding the F-150 pickup trucks, Ford dealers will inspect the battery cable joint and remove any excess adhesive that could be causing the problem.

Lincoln MKX Recall

In addition to the Ford recall, nearly 60,000 select Lincoln MKX vehicles that have 3.7-liter engines in North America were recalled. There are reported loose battery cable harnesses and transmission brackets that could break, ultimately increasing the risk of overheating or melted wires. Specifically, 2016-2017 vehicles are impacted.

Ford is aware of three fires that are potentially related to this issue.
