2011 Ford Edge

Ford is recalling certain model year 2011 Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers that were manufacture from July 1, 2010 through October 8, 2010. The recall, which consists of 71 units, says that vehicles were shipped with incorrectly configured electronic module settings that disable the locking function of the liftgate.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that the vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard No. 206 “Door Locks and Door Retention Components.”

“The liftgate lock may be disabled and the driver may not be able to lock the liftgate using interior lock switches or remote key fob button,” the NHTSA said.

To fix the problem Ford will have the affected control models free of charge. Owners can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.
