REASON FOR THIS SUPPLEMENT

New extended expiration limits, see Program Terms below.

 

PROGRAM TERMS

This is a one-time service program. There is no mileage limit for this program.

  • 2011 through 2015 Model Year expires March 31, 2019
  • 2016 through 2017 Model Year expires December 31, 2019

 

VEHICLES COVERED BY THIS PROGRAM

Vehicle Model Year Assembly Plant Build Dates
Explorer 2011-2017 Chicago 2011 Job 1 through 2017 Job Last

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS.

 

REASON FOR PROVIDING THIS SERVICE

Ford is aware that some 2011-2017 Explorer owners have concerns about exhaust or carbon monoxide.  These vehicles are safe.  However, for our customers’ peace of mind, Ford is offering this no charge service that reduces the potential for exhaust to enter the vehicle. Customers can take their vehicles, regardless of mileage or warranty status, to a Ford dealer to have this service performed.  To be clear, unlike Explorer vehicles, carbon monoxide concerns in Police Interceptor Utilities are related to unsealed holes from the installation of police equipment by third parties after the vehicle was purchased.

 

SERVICE ACTION

At the request of the customer, dealers are to reprogram the climate control module (using IDS release 107.04 or higher), inspect rear-of-vehicle sealing and repair as necessary.  This service must be performed at no charge to the vehicle owner.

NOTE: Climate control module reprogramming brings fresh air into the vehicle cabin during rapid acceleration.  Some customers in extremely hot and humid climates may notice a momentary change in max air conditioning output.

NOTE:  Aftermarket lighting and/or equipment mounted to the liftgate spoiler can compromise vehicle sealing.  Ford can only ensure proper sealing of the spoiler when aftermarket lighting and/or equipment is removed and the spoiler is resealed.  Before removing aftermarket lighting and/or equipment from the spoiler, contact the customer to obtain their approval to conduct this part of the service.  If a customer elects to keep aftermarket lighting and/or equipment on the spoiler, proceed with the following actions:

  • Document on the repair order that the service to reseal the spoiler and remove the aftermarket lighting and/or equipment from the spoiler was declined
  • Print and provide the customer with the Customer Information Form – Liftgate Spoiler – Aftermarket Lighting and/or Equipment (Attachment V)
  • Complete all other steps of this field service action
  • Release the vehicle to the customer

For Explorer vehicles used in law enforcement or as first responders that are equipped with aftermarket lighting and/or equipment, contact the SSSC for information regarding the servicing of these vehicles.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION MAILING SCHEDULE

Owner letters are expected to be mailed the week of November 13, 2017 through December 22, 2017.  Dealers should apply this service at the request of the customer, whether or not they have received a letter.

HVAC Module Reprogramming

  1. Reprogram the HVAC module using Integrated Diagnostic Software (IDS) release 107.04 or higher.

 

Important Information for Module Programming

NOTE: When programming or reprogramming a module, use the following basic checks to ensure programming completes without errors.

  • Make sure the 12V battery is fully charged before carrying out the programming steps and connect IDS/scan tool to a power source.
  • Inspect Vehicle Communication Module (VCM) and cables for any damage. Make sure scan tool connections are not interrupted during programming.
  • A hardwired connection is strongly recommended.
  • Turn off all unnecessary accessories (radio, heated/cooled seats, headlamps, interior lamps, HVAC system, etc.) and close doors.
  • Disconnect/depower any aftermarket accessories (remote start, alarm, power inverter, CB radio, etc.).
  • Follow all scan tool on-screen instructions carefully.
  • Disable IDS/scan tool sleep mode, screensaver, hibernation modes.
  • Create all sessions key on engine off (KOEO). Starting the vehicle before creating a session will cause errors within the programming inhale process.

 

Recovering a module when programming has resulted in a blank module:

NEVER DELETE THE ORIGINAL SESSION!

a. Obtain the original IDS that was used when the programming error occurred during module reprogramming (MR) or programmable module installation (PMI).

b. Disconnect the VCM from the data link connector (DLC) and the IDS.

c. Reconnect the VCM to IDS and then connect to the DLC. Once reconnected, the VCM icon should appear in the corner of the IDS screen. If it does not, troubleshoot the IDS to VCM connection.

d. Locate the original vehicle session when programming failed. This should be the last session used in most cases. If not, use the session created on the date that the programming failed.

NOTE: If the original session is not listed in the previous session list, click the Recycle Bin icon at the lower right of the previous session screen. This loads any deleted sessions and allows you to look through them. Double-click the session to restore it.

e. Once the session is loaded, the failed process should resume automatically.

f. If programming does not resume automatically, proceed to the Module Programming menu and select the previously attempted process, PMI or MR.

g. Follow all on-screen prompts/instructions.

h. The last screen on the IDS may list additional steps required to complete the programming process.
Make sure all applicable steps listed on the screen are followed in order.

Carbon Monoxide Complaints

 

KEY MESSAGES FOR DEALERS / Q&A 

Statement

Ford is aware that some 2011-2017 Explorer owners have concerns about exhaust or carbon monoxide.  These vehicles are safe.  Our investigation has not found carbon monoxide levels that exceed what people are exposed to every day.  However, for our customers’ peace of mind, Ford is offering this no charge service that reduces the potential for exhaust to enter the vehicle.  To be clear, carbon monoxide concerns in Police Interceptor Utilities are related to unsealed holes from the installation of police equipment by third parties after the vehicle was purchased.

 

EXPLORER

Q How do you know this action is effective at reducing exhaust or carbon monoxide?

Safety is our top priority.  All of our testing to date has shown these vehicles are safe.  We have not found carbon monoxide levels that exceed what people are exposed to every day. The free service we are offering is proven by our team to further reduce the potential for exhaust to enter the vehicle.

 

Does Ford’s decision to pay for this service mean that there was a safety issue with carbon monoxide in Explorers all along?

No.  These vehicles are safe.  Our investigation has not found carbon monoxide levels that exceed what people are exposed to every day.  However, we take consumer concerns seriously and are offering 2011-2017 Ford Explorer owners this free service, regardless of mileage or warranty status, for peace of mind.

 

Q Is this related to the Police Interceptor Utility?

Carbon monoxide concerns in Police Interceptor Utilities are related to unsealed holes from the installation of police equipment by third parties after the vehicle was purchased.

 

Q What are you doing for customers who have previously paid to have their vehicle serviced for this concern?

Ford is offering a refund for owner-paid repairs for the cost associated with the inspection and repair of vehicles with exhaust odor and carbon monoxide complaints using TSB 16-0166 or 17-0044. Deadline for customers to submit for a refund is March 31, 2018.  Refer to Attachment I in the Dealer Bulletin.

 

Q Will you check the carbon monoxide level if a customer requests it?  If not, why?

No.  These vehicles are safe.  Our investigation has not found carbon monoxide levels that exceed what people are exposed to every day.

 

Q Why doesn’t Ford equip its dealerships with carbon monoxide detectors?

These vehicles are safe.  Our investigation has not found carbon monoxide levels that exceed what people are exposed to every day.

 

Q Why won’t you recall these vehicles?

These vehicles are safe. Our decisions are driven by the data available. When the data indicates a safety recall is needed, we move quickly on behalf of our customers.

 

Q If there is no safety issue, why did a Ford employee say that there was a design issue in your Explorers?

That statement was made in error by a contractor of Ford at a Better Business Bureau proceeding involving an alleged exhaust odor.

 

Q How long will customers be able to get this service?

This program will be available until December 31, 2018.

 

Q What should customers do while waiting for this service?

Customers with concerns can run the air conditioning with recirculation turned off to allow more fresh air into the vehicle until they can bring it to a Ford dealer to have the service completed.

 

Q If carbon monoxide is coming into Explorers, shouldn’t customers stop driving their vehicle altogether?

These vehicles are safe, with or without the free service.  Our investigation has not found carbon monoxide levels that exceed what people are exposed to every day.

 

Q Does Ford recommend customers use carbon monoxide detectors in their vehicles?  Will Ford pay for them?

We encourage our customers with carbon monoxide concerns to bring their vehicle to their local Ford dealer for the free service provided under this program.

 


17N03 – Customer Information Form
Liftgate Spoiler – Aftermarket Lighting and/or Equipment

Your vehicle is equipped with aftermarket lighting and/or equipment mounted to the liftgate spoiler that may prevent proper sealing.  You have instructed the Dealer not to remove this equipment.

 

There is a wide assortment of aftermarket lighting and/or equipment products in the marketplace.  In addition, installation practices vary greatly.  Because of this variation, Ford cannot ensure proper sealing of the spoiler to the vehicle without removing the lights and/or equipment.  Ford recommends that you work with your installer and/or equipment supplier to ensure proper sealing of the spoiler.

NOTE:  Police equipment suppliers are working to develop solutions for existing spoiler mounted lighting and/or equipment products.

 

Examples of Liftgate Spoiler Aftermarket Lighting and/or Equipment and Installation Concerns:

  • Brackets positioned between the spoiler and the liftgate (See Figure 1)
  • Lighting and/or equipment that forces the spoiler out of position creates a gap between the spoiler and the liftgate (See Figure 2)
  • Unsealed holes drilled in the spoiler or liftgate (See Figures 3 and 4)
  • Wiring for lighting and/or equipment routed from the spoiler to the vehicle in a manner that damages the seals between the spoiler and the vehicle (See Figures 5 and 6)
  • When the spoiler is removed to install aftermarket lights and/or equipment, the spoiler attachment clips and seals may be damaged. If the spoiler was removed from the vehicle, the spoiler attachment clips and seals should be replaced.  Use part number HB5Z-78442K03-A
