Vehicles Affected: Approximately 86,300 model-year 2018 Ford F-Series Super Duty pickup trucks built from May 1, 2017, to July 13, 2018; and model-year 2019 F-Series Super Duty trucks built from March 5, 2018, to Oct. 8, 2019, all equipped with LED headlamps

The Problem: When the daytime running lamps are illuminated and the master lighting switch is moved to the low-beam position, the lamps do not revert to parking-lamp intensity as required by federal safety standards, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford said it is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.

The Fix: Dealers will update the body control module for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-392-3673, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
