Ford Recall for Brake Warning System Faults


Source: Ford Motor Company announcement

DEARBORN, Mich. – Ford Motor Company is issuing three safety recalls in North America including one for certain Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator models which might have a malfunctioning brake warning system.

Select 2020 Ford Expedition and 2020 Lincoln Navigator vehicles

Affected vehicles are equipped with nonfunctioning Pre-Collision Assist features, including Forward Collision Warning, Dynamic Brake Support and Automatic Emergency Braking.

This condition may prevent notifications to the driver indicating the features are inoperative. An inoperative Pre-Collision Assist system may not detect or reduce the risk or severity of a frontal collision. In fact, it could increase the risk of an injury or crash if the driver is relying on assistance from the system.
