Ford issues safety recall for certain 2014 Transit Connect vehicles in North America for fuel and vapor line routing issue

Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 27,600 2014 Ford Transit Connect vehicles in North America (actual 27,597) for potentially incorrect fuel and vapor line routing. If the lines are routed incorrectly, they may rub together, possibly causing a leak in the fuel line over time. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.

Ford is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fires related to this condition.

Affected vehicles include certain 2014 Transit Connect vehicles with a 2.5-liter engine built at Valencia Assembly, August 1, 2013 to July 10, 2014. Ford is aware of 25,238 vehicles in the United States and federalized territories, and approximately 2,359 in Canada.

Dealers will inspect the lines, and reroute and replace the fuel line if necessary. This will be done at no cost to the customer.

Ford issues safety recall for certain 2015 Transit vehicles in North America for potential fuel filter issue

Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 90 2015 Ford Transit vehicles in North America (actual 92) for an issue with the bracket that holds the fuel filter to the frame. It may become detached over time, resulting in a knocking sound or an engine stall due to fuel starvation. An unexpected engine stall while driving, with the inability to restart the engine, may lead to an increased risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Affected vehicles include certain 2015 Transit vehicles with a 3.2-liter diesel engine built at Kansas City Assembly, July 28, 2014 to August 7, 2014. Ford is aware of 89 vehicles in the United States and three in Canada.

Ford issues safety compliance recall for certain 2014 F-150 vehicles in North America for brake pedal position switch issue

Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 950 2014 Ford F-150 vehicles in North America (actual 960) for a brake pedal position switch that may be incorrectly adjusted, possibly resulting in a delay or a non-illumination of the brake lights when the brake pedal is depressed. This is a noncompliance issue with FMVSS 108, which relates to lamps.

Drivers may need to use additional brake pressure to disengage the cruise control system, so Ford is advising customers not to use cruise control until the vehicle has been repaired. The cruise control system off switch on the steering wheel will continue to disengage the system.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Affected vehicles include certain F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Truck, March 1, 2014 to March 13, 2014 and certain F-150 vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly, March 3, 2014 to March 13, 2014.
