Ford Recalls 1.3 Million F-150, Super Duty Pickups

2016 Ford F-150

Ford says the recall is due to frozen door latch or a bent or kinked actuation cable in the affected vehicles, that may result in a door not opening or closing. Ultimately, the door could open while the car is in motion.  The automaker says it will add a water shield to the side door latches.

  • In affected vehicles, a frozen door latch or a bent or kinked actuation cable may result in a door that will not open or will not close condition. Should a customer be able to open and close the door with these conditions, the door may appear closed, but the latch may not fully engage the door striker with the potential that the door could open while driving, increasing the risk of injury.
  • Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
  • Dealers will install water shields over the door latches and inspect and repair the door latch actuation cables if needed at no cost to the customer.
  • Affected vehicles include:
    • 2015-17 F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, March 12, 2014 to Dec. 31, 2016
    • 2015-17 F-150 vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Aug. 11, 2014 to Dec. 30, 2016
    • 2017 Super Duty vehicles built at Kentucky Assembly Plant, Oct. 8, 2015 to Sept. 1, 2016
  • The recall involves approximately 1,344,605 vehicles in North America, including 1,101,107 in the United States and federalized territories, 222,408 in Canada and 21,090 in Mexico. The Ford reference number for this recall is 17S33.
