Dangerous Truck Part Recall by Ford
A dangerous truck part recall involving almost 900,000 vehicles was issued recently by Ford Motor Company. It followed the discovery of a faulty heater cable in the engine block in F-150 and Super Duty models. The faulty heater cable could start a vehicle fire, according to the automaker. However, the risk exists when the heater cable is plugged in and the vehicle parked. The company reported that they had received three reports of fires in Ford trucks due to this splice connector, and only one caused minor damages. Ford said they didn’t believe any accidents or injuries had occurred due to the defective part but were issuing a dangerous truck part recall anyway.
