Ford recalls model year 2020 Rangers, F-150s and Expeditions

The transmission could be in a gear state different from the selected gearshift position

Ford Motor Company is recalling about 55,000 model year 2020 Rangers, F-150s with 10-speed automatic transmission and Expeditions with the police package and 10-speed automatic transmission sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

A clip that locks the gearshift cable to the transmission may not be fully seated. Over time, a partially seated clip may allow the transmission to be in a gear state different from the gearshift position selected by the driver.

This could allow the driver to move the shifter to “Park” and remove the ignition key, without the transmission gear actually being in “Park.”

If the parking brake is not applied in those cases, the vehicle could move unintentionally, increasing the risk of injury or crash.

There are no reports of accidents or injuries.

Ford F-150s with engine heater elements recalled

A resistive short may occur in the engine-block heater splice connector

Ford is recalling about 33,000 model year 2015-16 Ford F-150s with engine heater elements and 3.5-liter GTDI engines.

Depending on the heater element location, some vehicles may have cables with insufficient heat protection and incorrect length.

Ford recalls model year 2019 F-Series Super Duty vehicles

A passenger-side axle shaft could fracture

Ford Motor Company is recalling about 29,000 model year 2019 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The electronically locking rear-axle assembly may have a passenger-side axle shaft manufactured with steel that does not meet Ford’s specifications that may fracture.

A fractured passenger-side axle shaft could result in a loss of motive power while in two-wheel drive, and the inability to hold the park function. If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of crash or injury.

What to do

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the passenger-side rear axle shaft; shafts with a suspect batch code will be replaced.

Owners are advised to apply the parking brake whenever the vehicle is parked until the service fix is completed.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's reference number for this recall is 19S31.
