The Ford Motor Company mentions that the airbag malfunction warning light may be on in the affected vehicles. A total of 777 cars are called back, starting with 328 examples of the F-Series Super Duty line of trucks.
Also, 78 units of the F-150 pickup, 342 units of the Expedition truck-based utility vehicle, and 29 units of the Lincoln Navigator are recalled. Fortunately, the Dearborn-based automaker isn’t aware of any reports of accident or injury related to the condition mentioned above. Nevertheless, owners are scheduled to be notified by snail mail from November 1st through the 5th.
Ford says the remedy component has been manufactured outside the suspect date range and will not have damage caused by contact with the programming fixture. But, obviously enough, the automaker excludes reimbursement for repair costs because the warranty covers it.
In the meantime, owners of the affected vehicles may contact Ford’s customer service at 1-866-436-7332 for additional information. To find out if your vehicle needs a new module, the most reliable way of doing so is to run the vehicle’s 17-digit identification number through the online search engine provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
