The instrument panel may fail to illuminate as intended

Ford Motor Company is recalling 38,695 model year 2023 Escapes and Super Duty F-250, Super Duty F-350, Super Duty F-450, and Super Duty F-550 pickup trucks with a digital instrument panel cluster.

The module may have been improperly soldered, preventing the instrument panel from illuminating.

An inoperable instrument panel cannot show critical safety information, such as the speedometer or warning lights, which may increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will replace the module or instrument panel -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Notification letters to owners are expected to be mailed August 14, 2023.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 23C25.
