Ford Motor Company is recalling 431 model year 2020 F-150 pickup trucks.

The vehicles may have been built with an improper attachment nut used to fasten the positive battery cable (B+) to the starter motor. An improper attachment nut may not provide a secure connection to the starter or the required conductive properties.

This could increase the potential for incremental heat generation during a vehicle start cycle, and electrical arcing, which could lead to a fire.

There are no reports of fire, accident or injury.

What to do

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the starter motor B+ power supply attachment nut.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's reference number for this recall is 20S40.
