Ford Motor Company is recalling about 10,600 model year 2019-20 Mustangs and model year 2019 Expeditions.
The “transmission not in park” warning message and associated chime are only active for three seconds when the transmission is not in park, the ignition is off, and the driver’s door is closed.
The chime should remain active for 10 seconds and the transmission not in park warning message should display for 30 minutes when the driver’s door is closed.
A transmission not in park warning and chime with a shorter than designed duration could result in the driver exiting the vehicle when it is not in park and experiencing unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of injury or crash.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the instrument panel cluster free of charge.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 20S21.
