This problem is linked to Spain Ford engineers. We have nothing to do with that. We have enough problems with Ford Escape instrument panel.

They told us to keep ford on the front page , so we do. This is free advertisement. Win, win situation. I just wish , that customers pay for this.


May 13th to Dec 10th and only 1150 were affected? Did they run two different software revisions in that time?

^Those are the Transit Connects that got shipped to the US market.

@Ken, got ya...makes sense.

I thought they were made in Turkey.
