Ford Recalls Certain 2020 Mustangs for ADAS Issues


Source: Ford Motor Company announcement

DEARBORN, Mich. – Ford Motor Company is issuing two safety recalls in North America including one covering certain 2020 Mustangs with potentially compromised advance driver assistance systems (ADAS).

According to the company’s announcement, “Affected vehicles are equipped with an image processing module A – a forward-looking camera – that is misaligned to the vehicle. As a result of this misalignment, the camera may not function as intended. An incorrect forward-looking camera alignment calibration may cause features to have degraded functionality during vehicle operation. Those features include Pre-Collision Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keeping System, Driver Alert and Auto High-Beam Control. The Pre-Collision Assist system’s effectiveness in detecting a frontal collision may be compromised, increasing the risk of an accident.”

The recall impacts 24 vehicles in the United States and one in Canada, all built Feb. 10-11, 2020 at the Flat Rock, Mich., plant.

Dealers will reconfigure the forward-looking camera by aligning the Lane Departure Warning system camera.

In addition to the Mustang recall, the company is recalling certain Transit Connect vans due to seatbelt issues.
