2015-2017 Ford Transit: Recall Alert

2015 Ford Transit recall
Vehicles Affected:
Approximately 91,000 model-year 2015-17 Ford Transit vans equipped with the trailer tow module and manufactured at Missouri's Kansas City Assembly Plant from Feb. 3, 2014, to Aug. 2, 2017. This is an expansion of an earlier recall.

The Problem: Water leaking into the trailer tow module may result in wiring corrosion, which could lead to rapid flashing of the turn signals, loss of the instrument cluster display, loss of climate controls or loss of the multimedia system, including the radio, display screens and Sync. Wiring corrosion could also result in an electrical short to the ground, which could cause spontaneous seat belt pretensioner deployment, a burning smell and/or increased risk of fire, including when the vehicle is parked and the ignition is off. Ford is aware of two reports of vehicle fires potentially related to the issue in Canada.

The Fix: Dealers will add a drainage hole to the driver's doorstep well and incorporate a fuse into the vehicle wiring harness for free.

What Owners Should Do: For has not announced an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker for more details at 866-436-7332.

Calm down princess, the word "isn't" was omitted. Calm down.

Ford best selling RECALLS

Have to give FORD credit for the re-calls . It's one of the things that they do well -------------------- BUILD JUNK--------------------

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

My local school district uses Ford Transit Vans as school buses and use the 3.5 Eco-Boost engines
The Ford Transit van has the best safety and crash record of all full size personal transport vans.

You been drinking to much blue juice. Ford really has you brainwashed, this recall is about safety. If a van with no brakes is safe in your blue world then go ahead and buy the van for your family.

When you're a best seller, issues manifest themselves quickly. Keeping on top of these issues is good for the product, and the industry overall as a lot is learned in short time via necessity.

HAHAHA! You really just say keep on top of issues? That's why Ford is the most forced company by Feds for recalls! You better got blown on franks 1 incher!

Webster's should change the English word for "recall" to "Ford" to represent the two terms historically going hand-in-hand.

Sure. It's like a cheating wife who tells her husband quickly (that she's screwing around).

They should all catch fire. Good riddance. Nobody except for globalists and america-haters want eurovans in this country. They are designed to be expensive, boring, and embarrassing to be seen in because the intimate goal is to shame you out of large vehicle, price you out of running a private business, end your freedom, and put everybody on government dependency riding the bus at their behest. Carbon is Satan, roads are the pathway to hell and private vehicles are a sin and a fullsize van with a V8 and a body on frame is one of the seven deadly sins.

Funny, all you talk like engineers but are nothing short of grease monkeys.

Really pathetic to hear bunch of whiny girls cry about how an automakers engineers their product.

I think GM has really poor engineering, but I don't go on Ford recall post to prove to feel better for myself.

If you think you're tough, try changing your alternator on your favorite brand of truck.

90% of you wouldn't know if you are use metric or standard.

This video shows exactly why you or anyone you care for drive a Ford, Watch carefully.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iy4_lJ29Gc

Hahaha thanks for the video! I wonder how much quicker aluminum burns?

Bring your van back, we'll drill a hole and splice a fuse into the wire.
