Ford recalls nearly 5,000 model year 2023 Transit vehicles

The HVAC System defogger does not work as intended

Photo source: Ford
Ford Motor Company is recalling 4,804 model year 2023 Transit vehicles equipped with the Special Vehicle Operations Accessory Service Kit #1 or #2 with a High Specification Vehicle Interface Connector.

When the accessory kit is installed, the auxiliary wire harness will disable the heating, air-conditioning, and ventilation (HVAC) including the defrost and defog systems.

An inoperative windshield defrosting and defogging system may decrease the driver's visibility under certain driving conditions, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect the auxiliary wire harness and replace or repair -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters were expected to be in the mail by March 20, 2023.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 23C02.
