Manufacturer Recall Number 19S43

NHTSA Recall Number AWAITING#

Recall Status Recall Incomplete, remedy not yet available

Summary INLINE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR TERMINALS FOR THE TAIL LAMPS MAY BE MISALIGNED OR NOT PROPERLY SEATED. MISALIGNED OR IMPROPERLY SEATED TERMINALS CAN RESULT IN INTERMITTENT OR INOPERATIVE TAIL LAMP FUNCTION.


Safety Risk INTERMITTENT OR INOPERATIVE TAIL LAMPS CAN RESULT IN LOSS OF STOP, TURN, REAR POSITION, AND REVERSE LAMP FUNCTIONS, WHICH REDUCES THE VEHICLES VISIBILITY AND MAY NOT FULLY ALERT OTHER DRIVERS THAT THE VEHICLE IS BRAKING, TURNING, OR REVERSING, INCREASING THE RISK OF CRASH. THE CENTER HIGH-MOUNTED STOP LAMP (CHMSL) WILL CONTINUE TO FUNCTION.


Remedy OWNERS WILL BE NOTIFIED BY MAIL AND INSTRUCTED TO TAKE THEIR VEHICLE TO A FORD OR LINCOLN DEALER TO HAVE THE UNDERBODY INLINE CONNECTOR INSPECTED. IF A LOOSE TERMINAL IS IDENTIFIED, THE TERMINALS WILL BE RE-PINNED INTO A REPLACEMENT CONNECTOR. THERE WILL BE NO CHARGE FOR THIS SERVICE. FORD IS EXCLUDING REIMBURSEMENT FOR COSTS BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL WARRANTY PROGRAM WOULD PROVIDE FOR A FREE REPAIR FOR THIS CONCERN. FORD WILL FORWARD A COPY OF THE NOTIFICATION LETTERS TO DEALERS TO THE AGENCY WHEN AVAILABLE.


Manufacturer's Notes TO CHECK FOR NON-SAFETY-RELATED PROGRAMS APPLICABLE TO YOUR VEHICLE, SEE HTTP://WWW.FORD.COM/ OR CALL YOUR FORD DEALER.


If the manufacturer has failed or is unable to remedy this safety recall for your vehicle in a timely manner, please contact the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at: 1-888-327-4236 or TTY: 1-800-424-9153 or file an online complaint with NHTSA.

I was wondering the same thing myself but apparently it’s possible. I guess they picked the wrong monkey to work that particular section of the line.

It sounds to me like it is a problem with a connector not the guy who assembled it.
