The child safety lock may malfunction

Ford Motor Company is recalling 9,847 model year 2023-2024 Bronco 4-door SUVs.

The left-side rear door may be opened from the inside of the vehicle when the child safety lock is in the "ON" position.

A malfunctioning child safety lock that allows a rear door to be opened unintentionally can increase the risk of injury.

What to do

Dealers will inspect the child safety locks and replace the rear door latch -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Notification letters are expected to be mailed to owners April 16, 2024.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 24S15.
