FoMoCo recalls 14,737 2011 F-Series pickups, Edge, Lincoln MKX

2011 Ford Edge

If you thought we could end 2010 without any more recalls, you thought wrong. FoMoCo has just announced it is recalling a total of 14,737 units of certain 2011 model year F-150, F-250, F-350, F-450, F-550, Edge and Lincoln MKX units that were built during a 6-day production period.

Ford says that the supplier of the body control module manufactured modules that may have the potential for an internal short.

“If an electrical short develops, an overheating condition may occur, which can result in an unattended vehicle fire,” the NHTSA said in a statement.

To fix the problem dealers will replace the body control module if necessary free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before Jan. 10, 2011.

For more info, owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA’s hot line at 888-327-4236.
