Ford recalls 9,900 vehicles across two campaigns

Ford is recalling a total of 9,885 vehicles in two campaigns.

The Basics: In one recall, Ford will recall 9,017 examples of the 2013 Escape with build dates from January 11, 2012, to April 1, 2013, and the 2013-2014 Focus ST produced between May 3, 2012, and October 14, 2013.

The Problem: Splices in the engine wiring harness might not have enough compression, and this can cause the manifold absolute pressure sensor to send incorrect signals to the powertrain control module. This issue could cause the engine to stall.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the current crimped splices with new splices, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If You Own One: The repair campaign will begin on January 4, 2016.

More Information: Ford recalled the 2013 Escape and Focus ST in August 2014 for the same problem, and this is an expansion of that campaign, according to company spokesperson John Cangany to Autoblog.



The Basics: In the smaller of the two campaigns, Ford will recall 868 examples of the 2013 Explorer, Explorer Police Utility, Taurus, Taurus Police Interceptor, Flex, Lincoln MKS, and MKT.

The Problem: The fuel delivery module can crack, which would cause a fuel leak.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module.

If You Own One: Owners should receive notice soon because NHTSA's report says the recall begins in December.

More Information: According to Cangany, this recall is an expansion of a campaign from 2013 for these vehicles. Show full PR text RECALL Subject : Engine Wiring Splices may cause Stall

    Question of the Day: Most degraded car name?

    When Ford came up with a not-so-sporty version of the Pinto and slapped Mustang badges on it in 1974, that was a low point for the Mustang name. When Chrysler applied the venerable Town & Country name on perfectly functional but unglamorous minivans, it saddened many of us. But perhaps the biggest demotion for a once-proud model came when, in 1988, General Motors imported a misery-enhancing

    Ford tries to get a better handle on what EV drivers want

    Ford says more than nine out of 10 electric-vehicle drivers indicate that their current EV won't be their last. Which is a good thing. Given the Blue Oval's most recent green-car sales, that next EV purchase couldn't come soon enough. The automaker took a poll of 10,000 electric-vehicle owners in the US and found that, among other things, more than 80 percent either already have or are
