The recall applies only to Bronco vehicles equipped with a standard 8-inch center touch screen. Models with a larger 12-inch screen are not affected.
The problem only develops, Ford says, when drivers reverse while the SUV is on the low all-wheel drive setting. “Only condition will be provided With the car in 4-Low but will continue when switching to 2-High mode inside The ignition cycle itself,” Ford told federal regulators. Owners can fix it in the short term by shutting down their SUV and restarting it.
Ford can fix the problem in the long run with an over-the-air software update. Owners will not need to bring their Bronco SUV to a dealership for repair.
The fix, as always with recall fixes, is free.
Many cars are recalled, often more than once, during their life span. Automakers try to contact every owner but don’t always reach them all. Find out if your vehicle has any great recalls with the easy VIN tool in our recall center.
