Ford is recalling select 2017-18 F-150 and 2018 Expedition, 2018 Lincoln Navigator and 2018 Ford Mustang vehicles due to a transmission issue.
The recalled models are equipped with 10R80 transmissions that may have a missing transmission roll pin. The pin attaches the park pawl rod guide cup to the transmission case. If it’s missing, with repeated use, the transmission may eventually lose park function even when the shifter and instrument panel display indicate the vehicle is in park. This condition would allow the ignition key to be removed, with no instrument panel warning message or warning chime when the driver’s door is opened that indicates the vehicle is not secured in park. If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of injury or crash.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.
Affected vehicles include:
- 2017-18 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, Oct. 20, 2016 to March 5, 2018
- 2017-18 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Dec. 22, 2017 to Feb. 26, 2018
- 2018 Ford Expedition vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant, Nov. 28, 2017 to Feb. 14, 2018
- 2018 Ford Mustang vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant, Nov. 6, 2017 to Feb. 12, 2018
- 2018 Lincoln Navigator vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant, Dec. 13, 2017 to March 8, 2018
The recall involves approximately 161 vehicles in North America with 142 in the United States and federalized territories, 18 in Canada and one in Mexico. The Ford reference number for this recall is 18S09.
Dealers will inspect the transmission for a missing park pawl rod guide cup roll pin and will install the roll pin if required for free.
