There’s another Ford Maverick recall

Ford

This one is to address a taillight issue

Ford is recalling 242,669 2022-2024 Maverick pickup trucks. The Body Control Module (BCM) may inadvertently deactivate one or both rear tail lights.

Tail lights that fail to illuminate can reduce the vehicle's visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mavericks have been subject to other recalls so far in 2024. In March, Ford recalled 62,813 Maverick Hybrids because the instrument panel cluster may not properly illuminate warning lights or gauges.

In April, the automaker recalled 456,565 model year 2021-2024 Bronco Sports and model year 2022-2023 Mavericks. The body and power train control modules may fail to detect a change in the 12-volt battery state of charge.

What to do

For this latest recall, dealers will update the BCM software, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed May 20, 2024.
