Ford Motor Company “Ford” is recalling certain 2019-2020 F-150 vehicles. The fastener securing the Power Distribution Box “PDB” 12V cable and Battery Monitoring System “BMS” eyelets to the positive battery terminal may loosen and affect the vehicle’s systems such as instrument panel displays and braking or steering assist. The engine could also stall.
Inoperative vehicle systems or an engine stall can increase the risk of a crash. Reduced braking and steering efforts increases the risk of a crash. This condition could also create a resistive short, increasing the risk of a fire.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the positive battery cable/BMS/PDB joint for excess sealant adhesive and remove any excessive adhesive, reassemble the joint, and retorque the fastener, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began November 25, 2019. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 19S40.
