Certain vehicles may not comply with Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208 - Occupant Protection in Frontal Impacts. Prescribed text may have been omitted from the airbag warning label in the French language only. As a result, the French-language warning label is more restrictive than the English. Correction: No corrective recall action is required as this technical non-compliance is deemed to be non-safety related.
On certain 2011 Ranger vehicles, the multi-function switch, installed during vehicle assembly, could malfunction and fail. Additionally, other vehicle models may have received the affected switch as a replacement part during service, and are therefore also involved in this campaign. Failure of the multi-function switch could result in a loss of turn signal, tail lamp, hazard warning signal flasher and/or stop lamp function. Failure of these lighting components to illuminate may result in the following road users being unaware of the driver's intentions, as well as reducing vehicle conspicuity during hours of darkness, which could increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the multi-function switch.
On certain vehicles, the speed control deactivation switch may overheat, smoke, or burn, potentially resulting in an underhood fire. The condition may occur either when the vehicle is parked or when it is in operation. Correction: Dealers will install a new switch or fused wiring harness. Note: This is an expansion of recall 2005028 (05S28) for vehicles not previously included in the campaign.
On certain vehicles equipped with a 7.3L diesel engine, the camshaft position sensor may fail, causing the engine to stall. Engine stalling would result in lost propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road conditions, and the driver's reactions, could increase the risk of a crash. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if required, replace the camshaft position sensor.
On certain vehicles equipped with a 6.0L diesel engine, the Fuel Injection Control Module (FICM) wire harness may chafe against an engine bolt. Also, the Injection Control Pressure (ICP) sensor connector terminals may have an improper crimp height that may result in intermittent or permanent loss of the ICP sensor signal. FICM wire harness chafes or improper ICP sensor connector crimps may cause the vehicle to stall without warning while driving. If the vehicle stalls, it may or may not restart. Correction: For all F-Superduty and Excursion vehicles, dealers will inspect the FICM wire harness for chafing. If bare wires have not been exposed, dealers will install a wire protection kit. If bare wires have been exposed, dealers will install a new wire harness. For all E-Series and, depending on build date, some F-Superduty and Excursion vehicles, dealers will install a new ICP sensor connector with certified crimps.
On certain pick-up trucks and chassis cab vehicles equipped with 5.4L and 6.8L gasoline engines, a fuel jumper line may separate from the connection to the main fuel bundle. If the fuel line separates, an operator may notice a gasoline odour and/or fuel on the ground, loss of power, and eventual engine stall. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Correction: Dealers will install an external retention clip at the fuel jumper line to main fuel bundle connection.
On certain vehicles, the speed control deactivation switch may overheat, smoke, or burn, potentially resulting in an underhood fire. The condition may occur either when the vehicle is parked or when it is in operation. Correction: Initially as an interim repair, owners will be instructed to return their vehicles to their dealers to have the speed control deactivation switch disconnected. As soon as replacement parts are available, owners will be instructed to return to the dealers for installation of a new switch or fused wiring harness.
On certain vehicles, the ground stud that retains the negative battery terminal eyelet to the engine block may be loose. A loose battery ground wire may produce high resistance to current flow. As a result, current may take an alternate path to ground through the radio suppression strap causing it to heat and potentially melt or ignite adjacent components. Correction: Dealers will replace the engine ground stud. The radio suppression strap and adjacent components will be inspected for damage, and if necessary, replaced.
Certain F250/350 King Ranch and Lariat 4x4 single rear wheel vehicles equipped with Goodyear Wrangler AT/S LT275/65R18 tires fail to conform to the requirements of CMVSS 120. One or more of the tires installed may have an incorrect load range rating for the vehicle, which can result in a tire being overloaded. If a tire is operated in an over-loaded or over-inflated condition, the tire may rupture without warning resulting in a rapid air loss, which could increase the risk of a crash. Correction: Dealer will replace the load range "C" tires with load range "E" tires.
