At this point, it’s hard to keep up with the number of recalls from Ford. Today, five recalls covering four of its vehicles came down at once. They include the Ford Explorer, F-150 pickup, Bronco Sport, and Ranger pickup. Unfortunately, Ford has issued more National Highway Traffic Safety recalls in 2022 than any other manufacturer, at 54. And counting. We’ll give a brief summary of each one.

F-150, Raptor, Bronco Sport recall

ford quality problems: five separate recalls for explorer, f-150, bronco, and ranger

Ford F-150 Raptor | Ford

This stemmed from tests of assembled Bronco Sport crossovers at the Hermosillo assembly plant in Mexico. Assembly workers found flickering parking lamps on a few of the SUVs. Ford reviewed the findings and found the same LED driver module powered F-150 and Raptor parking lights as well.

From the review, Ford has issued a recall of 86,050 pickups and crossovers. This recall involves 77,804 2022 F-150 trucks and Raptors combined. For the Bronco Sport models, 8,246 of both 2022 and 2023 models are part of the recall.

From Ford, “The frequency of operation of the LED driver module is currently 200Hz. At 200Hz, the lamp is susceptible to flickering due to insufficient capacitance on the capacitor when operating between 2.95 and 3.14 volts and the lamp has LED string voltage greater than 12.5 volts.” Austria’s Continental Automotive manufactures the module, which is part number NC5A-13B626-FB.

Ford F-150 tear seam recall

You know those little random horizontal lines on your steering wheel hub and around your glove box door? Those are tear seams for the airbag to deploy through. Airbags literally tear through the seam to blow out into the cabin. At the end of June, it found there were defective F-150 tear seams on the passenger side instrument panel.

With that information, Ford began testing F-150 trucks to see if they could understand the issue. “Ongoing monitoring of vehicle containment found some vehicles escaped containment and were delivered to dealers,” from a statement by Ford. Based on those tests, Ford has issued a recall of 74 or more pickups that could exhibit the problem. They were built in June and July of this year.

Ford Explorer and Ranger pickup fuel line recall

2022 Ford Explorer | Ford

Both the Explorer and Ranger pickups are being recalled over loose fuel line connections at the fuel pump. Assembly workers at the Michigan Assembly Plant first discovered the problem. The leaks occurred at the initial startups on the assembly line. Ford also says that “these two engines were improperly repaired during a quality inspection at Cleveland Engine Plant.”

At both the Michigan and Explorer Chicago Assembly Plant Ford issued stop ship orders. Unfortunately, some vehicles from both plants were out in the wild. Those dealers must now inspect the connections. Any found to be poorly connected will be replaced.

Ford is recalling 51 Explorers and 18 Ranger pickups. All of them have the EcoBoost 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. They were part of assemblies that took place on August 23rd and 26th of 2022.
