Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) is recalling the Ford Transit Vans manufactured between Feb. 3, 2014, and Aug. 2, 2017, at its Kansas City Assembly Plant to fix the leak problem of Trailer Tow Module. Each Transit Van carries 15 people.
The current recall is for nearly 100,000 Transit Vans. The seeping water through the faulty trailer tow module is likely to corrode the wiring of the module. As a result, the turn signals of the vehicle begin to flash very rapidly. It will also affect the instrument cluster display and may cause abrupt heating in the vehicle. As a result, infotainment systems and air conditioning are likely to malfunction and cause discomfort.
The water leak may also short the ground wire and causes the risk of fire. It may also tighten the seat belts. Ford started recalling the vehicles since October 2017. The company has added 26,000 vehicles to the recall list in Canada and the US. The total number of recalled vehicles is now 99,893 in North America.
According to the recent reports, 9,029 vehicles in Canada and 90,864 vehicles in the US are affected by this issue.
The vehicle owners need to approach the nearby dealers to fix the issue for free. The technician available at the dealership will make a hole in the doorstep wall of the driver cabin and insert a fuse in the wiring harness of the vehicle to prevent corrosion of the wiring module.
