Ford Motor Company is recalling about 5,800 model year 2019 Ford Rangers.

The recalled vehicles had the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) blower motor replaced in an earlier recall.

The replacement part used for that service may have been built with an improper clearance between an electrical terminal and the conductive base-plate slot that could result in a resistive electrical short.

This condition can increase the risk of the HVAC blower motor overheating, melting, smoking or causing a fire.

Ford says it has not received any reports of accident, injury or fire.

What to do

Ford will contact owners, and dealers will inspect the HVAC blower-motor date code. Blower motors built within the suspect time frame will be replaced free of charge.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's reference number for this recall is 20S12.
