Ford Motor Company is recalling about 78,000 model year 2019 Ford Rangers.
The inline electrical connector terminals for the tail lamps may be misaligned or not properly seated, resulting in intermittent or inoperative tail lamps.
Intermittent or inoperative tail lamps can result in loss of stop, turn, rear position and reverse lamps, which can reduce the vehicle’s visibility and may not fully alert other drivers that the vehicle is braking, turning, or reversing, increasing the risk of a crash.
The high-mounted center stop lamp is not affected.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the underbody inline connector and -- if a terminal is loose -- re-pin it into a replacement connector.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-733. Ford's reference number for this recall is 19S43.
