Ford Motor Company is recalling 49,197 120V Convenience charge cords that were supplied with and sold for use with model year 2013-2015 Ford C-Max Energi & Fusion Energi vehicles, and model year 2012-2015 Ford Focus Electric vehicles.

Cords with part numbers FM58-10B706-AA, FM58-10B706-AB, FM58-10B706-AC, FM58-10B706-AD, FM58-10B706-AE and FM58-10B706-AF were manufactured without thermistors.

During vehicle charging, increased resistance in the house's outlet or wiring can cause the cord to overheat and melt, increasing the risk of a fire.

What to do

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the current cord with a new 120V convenience cord with a thermistor, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin September 17, 2018.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18S24.
