Ford is recalling about 3,500 model year 2019 Ford Rangers built at Michigan Assembly Plant from June 4, 2018, to January 9, 2019, and sold in the U.S. and Canada.
The PRNDL bezel wiring may interfere with the shifter interlock override, preventing the shifter from locking in the park position and allowing the driver to shift the transmission out of park with the vehicle off and without a foot on the brake pedal.
No accidents or injuries have been reported.
What to do
Dealers will verify shifter interlock functionality by attempting to move the transmission shifter out of park with the vehicle off and without a foot on the brake pedal. If the shifter moves out of park, dealers will look for wiring interference, relocate the wiring and retest.
Owners may contact Ford at (313) 594-3744 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ford's reference number for this recall is 19C02.
