Vehicles Affected: Approximately 166,200 model-year 2018-20 Ford F-150 pickup trucks with LED headlights

The Problem: When the daytime running lamps on affected vehicles are illuminated and the master lighting switch is manually rotated from the autolamp position to the headlamp-on (low-beam) position, the daytime running lights remain activated instead of dimming to parking lamp intensity, reducing the visibility of other drivers and increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford said it is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

The Fix: Dealers will update the body control module software configuration 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.
