Ford Motor Company is recalling 292,909 model year 2018 F-650s and F-750s equipped with 6-speed automatic transmissions and model year 2018 Ford F-150s and Expeditions equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions (excluding Expeditions with a Rotary Gear Shift Dial on the console).
The gear shift cable clip may not be properly seated, allowing the transmission to be in a different gear than indicated by the gear shift lever position.
If the gear shift cable clip becomes unseated or dislodged, the gear shift lever position may indicate that the transmission is in 'Park' when it may be in a different gear.
Additionally, despite selecting 'Park', if the parking brake is not applied before the vehicle is exited, the vehicle may roll. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the shift cable locking clip and properly seat it, if necessary, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin April 16, 2018.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for the recall is 18S10.
