2010 Ford Ranger Exterior Lighting: Tail Lights, Exterior Lighting: Brake Lights: NHTSA Campaign #11V352000

Date Announced: July 13, 2011 / Vehicles Affected: 26,715

Summary: Ford is recalling certain model year 2011 Ranger trucks built from January 25, 2011, through April 25, 2011 at the Twin Cities assembly plant, and service parts distributed to dealers for certain 2004 through 2011 model year Ranger trucks, 2002 through 2005 model year Excursion vehicles, and 2002 through 2007 model year F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 trucks for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 108, "lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment." The multi-function switch was shipped with a subcomponent (slider) that may experience deformation. A multi-function switch with a deformed slider may malfunction causing the turn signal, tail lights, hazard warning signal flashers and/or brake lights not to activate.

Consequence: Non-functioning lights could increase the risk of a crash.

Actions: Dealers will replace the switches free of charge. The safety recall began on August 15, 2011. Owners may contact Ford Motor Company customer relationship center at 1-866-436-7332. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the NHTSA Recall 11V352000

 

2010 Ford Ranger Fuel System, Gasoline: Delivery: Hoses, Lines/Piping, and Fittings NHTSA Campaign #11V126000

Date Announced: February 21, 2011 / Vehicles Affected: 23,688

Summary: Ford is recalling certain model year 2010 Ford Ranger trucks manufactured from October 15, 2009, through may19, 2010. The engine fuel line in the area of the throttle body shield may not have a protective convolute (cover) properly installed. If the protective convolute on the fuel line is not assembled in the proper position, the edge of the shield may contact the fuel line. Over time this contact may chafe the fuel line, resulting in a fuel odor and a potential fuel leak.

Consequence: A sufficient fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.

Actions: Dealers will trim the throttle body shield away from the fuel line and inspect the fuel line for wear, and replace the line if necessary free of charge. The safety recall began on March 4, 2011. Owners may contact the Ford Motor Company customer relationship center at 1-866-436-7332. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the NHTSA Recall 11V126000

 

2010 Ford Ranger Parking Brake: Driveline: Hydraulic: Actuator NHTSA Campaign #10V202000

Date Announced: May 11, 2010 / Vehicles Affected: 2,934

Summary: Ford is recalling certain model year 2010 Ranger vehicles manufactured from June 8, 2009 through February 2, 2010 equipped with manual transmission. It is possible for the parking brake cable to become disconnected from the right rear actuator during cold weather. This may occur when the parking brake is released if wet parking brake shoes have frozen in the applied position. If the right rear parking brake cable becomes disconnected, the pedal will have extended travel and may not fully apply the parking brake.

Consequence: A manual transmission vehicle parked in neutral without a fully applied parking brake may have unintended movement which may cause a crash.

Actions: Dealers will install a revised right rear parking brake actuator to prevent cable disconnection free of charge. The safety recall began on May 21, 2010. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the NHTSA Recall 10V202000
