Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling 2,894 model year 2016 F-150 trucks manufactured April 27, 2015, to November 22, 2015, and equipped with Multi-Contour Seats (MCS).
The front passenger seat Occupant Classification System (OCS) that calibrates the air bag deployment level may incorrectly classify an adult as a child when the seat massage feature is activated.
If an adult is incorrectly classified as a child, the passenger front air bag will not deploy during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will update the Occupant Classification System Module (OCSM) with new software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 7, 2016.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16S05.
