Dealers will update the software in the ABS module, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed November 7, 2022. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 22C24.

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS and FSA VIN Lists.



All of the affected vehicles may not conform to the requirements specified by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108 – Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment. It may be possible that while driving the brake lamps illuminate without the brakes being applied if the TRM trailer brake gain is set to 0.5 or above. This condition may occur with or without a trailer connected to the vehicle. If a trailer equipped with electric or electric-over-hydraulic brakes is connected to the vehicle, the trailer brakes may apply without the vehicle’s brakes being applied. Unintentional brake lamp illumination may impair the effectiveness of the brake lamps and increase the risk of a crash.



DO NOT DEMONSTRATE OR DELIVER any new in-stock vehicles involved in this compliance recall. A complete Dealer Bulletin will be provided to dealers by early 4th Quarter 2022, when it is anticipated that repair instructions will be available to support this compliance recall.

IMPORTANT: Dealers should open a Repair Order (RO) only when a full dealer bulletin is published. Opening an RO against an Awareness or Advance Notice will result in warranty rejections against a recall.



Owners of record will be notified via first-class mail after repair instructions and parts ordering information have been provided to dealers.


Federal law requires dealers to complete this recall service before a new vehicle is delivered to the buyer or lessee. Violation of this requirement by a dealer could result in a civil penalty of up to $21,000 per vehicle. Correct all vehicles in your new vehicle inventory prior to delivery.  



The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act law effective June 2016 prohibits a rental company from selling, renting or leasing vehicles subject to a safety or compliance recall. Please consult your legal counsel for legal advice.


Chronology :

On August 26th 2022 , an issue pertaining to the rear brake lamps was brought to Ford’s Critical Concern Review Group for review.

On August, 2022 the Plant Vehicle Team was made aware of an issue with the rear brake lamps on Maverick.
Under certain circumstances the brake lamps are illuminated when the driver is not applying the brakes.

An investigation revealed that the ABS module supplied by Continental transmitted an incorrect value to the ITRM due to a misinterpretation of a specification provided by Ford.

As of September 22nd 2022, there have been 23 known warranty claims alleging vehicle stop lamps illuminating without brake application. As of September 22th, 2022 there are no related VOQs, accidents, or injuries reported.

On September 23rd 2022, Ford’s Field Review Committee reviewed the concern and approved a field action.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.
