What’s the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects 2019 Ford Ranger trucks that were previously repaired under recall 19V726.
The service replacement Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) blower motor installed on affected vehicles may have an improper clearance between an electrical terminal and the conductive base plate which could result in an resistive electrical short, NHTSA said. A resistive electrical short increases the risk of a fire and serious injury to the driver and passengers.
Ford is notifying owners and dealers will inspect and replace the HVAC blower motor, if necessary, free of charge. This recall began in April 2020.
Ford Ranger Transmission Recall
Ford is recalling 2020 Ranger trucks equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions over concerns that the transmission shift cable lock clip may not be fully seated, allowing the transmission to actually be in a different gear than the gear shift position selected by the driver. If the transmission selection does not match the indicated gear selection, and the parking brake is not applied, unintended vehicle movement can occur, increasing the risk of injury or crash. This recall began on April 27, 2020.
