Ford Recall Covers 2011 Edge, F-150 and MKX

December 30, 2010

Some versions of the 2011 Ford F-150, Lincoln MKX and Ford Edge are being recalled for a problem with body control modules.

Those modules keep check on systems from oil pressure to air conditioning, and in this case, a common module is shared between the front- or all-wheel-drive crossovers and the pickup truck.

In the recall--campaign ID #10V659000--the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says some 14,737 Ford and Lincoln vehicles are affected. The agency reports that, for a six-day period, defective body-control modules were installed in the vehicles, leading to a possible internal short.

The electrical short could cause overheating and fire.

The recall also includes heavy-duty F-Series trucks manufactured during the same period.

The recall begins on January 10. Owners can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332 to find out if their vehicle is affected.
