Following its Sept. 13 recall for 338,332 Explorers, because the power seats may have sharp edges that could cause a hand injury, Ford (F) has issued two separate recalls for its F-Series Super Duty trucks as well as its Explorer models. The automaker has also issued an amended recall for its Escape models.

The F-Series Super Duty pickup truck recall affects a total of 28,579 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories and 4,316 in Canada and 73 in Mexico. The recall was issued for 2019 F-Series Super Duty trucks models passenger side-axle shaft that may have been produced with a steel material that doesn’t meet the company’s specifications and could cause it to fracture.

Because of the issue, the passenger-side axle issue could cause a loss of power while driving in two-wheel drive as well as the inability to hold the park function. Vehicles could move when not intended, if the parking brake is not applied, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

The affected Super Duty trucks were produced at Ford’s Kentucky Truck Plant and Ohio Assembly Plant from May 21 through July 26.

To repair the axle issue, Ford will inspect the axle shaft and replace those that are affected by the recall. Until the repair has been completed, Super Duty truck owners are advised to apply the parking brake when parking the vehicle.

Ford has not received any reports of an accident or injury from the affected vehicles.

The recall number is 19S31.

The second recall from Ford was issued for select 2020 Explorer vehicles that are equipped with a 2.3-liter or 3.3-liter gas engine. The recall affects 10,655 vehicles in the U.S., which the majority of models located in dealer inventory. Ford said these vehicles will be repaired prior to customer delivery.

The recall was issued for the Explorers because they may have a wiring harness that is not properly secured, which could contact the air conditioning pulley, causing damage to the wiring harness or air-conditioning drive belt by rubbing through the wiring harness insulation. This could cause contact with the unfused B+ circuit, resulting in a short circuit or a fire.

The recalled Explorers were built at Ford’s Chicago Assembly Plant from May 28 through July 18.

To remedy the wiring harness issue, Ford dealers will secure the harness and repair any damage caused.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents, injuries, or fires related to the recall.

The recall number is 19S32.

Lastly, Ford has issued an amended recall for its 2020 Escape vehicles, adding to the recall that was issued on Aug. 30. The company has expanded to include Escapes that were built from April 3 to Sept. 21.

The amended recall affects another 9,350 vehicles in North America built at Ford’s Louisville Assembly Plant. The majority of vehicles are still in its dealer inventory and will be repaired prior to customer delivery, Ford said.

The recall was issued because the Escape vehicles may be missing a third pawl that could affect seatback strength. This could cause the occupant to be improperly restrained, increasing the risk of injury during a crash.

The recall also affects certain 2018 to 2020 Ford F-150, 2019 to 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty, 2018 to 2019 Ford Explorers, and 2019 Ford Expedition vehicles as well as certain 2020 Ford Explorer and 2020 Lincoln Aviator models.

The recall number is 19C07.
