Potential Number of Units Affected 328,213

 

Driver Side Air Bag Inflator May Rupture

In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver’s frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

 

Summary

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is superseding a previous recall for certain 2004-2006 Ford Ranger trucks to implement a final repair. Upon deployment of the driver side frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

 

Remedy

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver’s frontal air bag inflator with an alternate inflator, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 26, 2017, and will be launched in phases through the end of March 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 17S42. Note: This recall supersedes recall 16V-036 which was an interim repair. Vehicles that received a replacement air bag inflator under the previous campaign need to return to a dealer to have an alternate inflator installed.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

SUBJECT: Safety Recall 17S42 Supplement #4
All 2004-2006 Model Year Ranger Vehicles
Driver and Passenger Airbag Inflator Replacement

 

New! REASON FOR THIS SUPPLEMENT

  • The rental vehicle reimbursement process and daily rate limits have changed. See attachment VIII Takata Airbag Recall Rental Vehicle Reimbursement Process for details.
  • Dealers with Quick Lanes may now use Quick Lane service bays and Quick Lane technicians to perform Takata Airbag Recalls. Reference the Quick Lane Repairs section for further details. 
  • A dealer Q&A has been added to answer frequently asked questions.

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Vehicle Model Year Assembly Plant Build Dates
Ranger 2004 Edison Job 1 through Job Last
Ranger 2004 – 2006 Twin Cities Job 1 through Job Last

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS and FSA VIN Lists.

 

REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL

Takata has determined that the propellant wafers in some airbag inflators may experience an alteration over time, which could potentially lead to an over-aggressive combustion in the event of a crash that requires airbag deployment.  This potential condition could create excessive internal pressure when the airbag is deployed, which could result in the body of the inflator rupturing upon deployment increasing the risk of injury to occupants.

 

SERVICE ACTION

Dealers are to replace the driver and passenger airbag inflators.  This service must be performed on all affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner.

NOTE:  This is a final / permanent repair.  All vehicles that were previously serviced under Safety Recall 14B04, 15S22 and/or 16S03 must have this repair performed.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION MAILING SCHEDULE

All original owner letter mailings have been completed.  To encourage customers to have this important safety recall completed, follow up owner letter mailings are currently being sent on a regular cadence to customers that have not yet had this recall completed.

Dealers should repair any vehicles that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.

PLEASE NOTE:

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 before delivery.

Safety Recall 17S42 – Supplement #4
All 2004-2006 Model Year Ranger Vehicles
Driver and Passenger Airbag Inflator Replacement

 

New! DEALER Q & A

Q1. A vehicle was previously in safety recall 17S42, why is it now in safety recall 18S02?
A. Within the overall population of vehicles affected by the Takata inflator issue, a subset of vehicles were built with a particular batch of driver airbag inflators shown to have a significantly higher risk of overaggressive combustion which may result in death or serious injury. Two inflators built on the same day as the driver side airbag inflator in this population of vehicles have ruptured causing fatal injuries. This subset population of vehicles were previously included in safety recall 17S42.
Q2. Parts for this recall are on restricted ordering, can I still order parts?
A. Yes, there is currently limited stock of parts available to repair vehicles under this recall. Part orders will be fulfilled as parts become available.

  • To order parts for this recall dealers should submit a VIN specific part order request to the Special Service Support Center (SSSC).  
Q3. Can the airbag inflator part numbers provided in safety recalls 16S03 and 15S22 be used to complete repairs under safety recall 17S42?
A. No, the part used in 16S03 and 15S22 are not equivalent to the parts required for 17S42. Use only the part numbers listed in the dealer bulletin for this recall (or latest level replacements) for this final repair.
Q4. Are rental vehicles available while waiting on parts?
A. Yes, If the customer requests a rental vehicle while waiting for parts to become available, refer to the Takata Airbag Recall Rental Vehicle Reimbursement Process (Attachment VIII) for rental reimbursement guidelines and the process for requesting rental vehicle reimbursement.
Q5. How should I handle a vehicle with airbags that have already deployed?
A. For vehicles that the airbags have deployed or that have other modifications preventing the recall repair from being completed:

  • Submit a VIN specific request to the SSSC Web Contact Site prior to attempting a repair.
  • Attach pictures of the vehicles airbag modules to the request.
Q6. Will completed surveys count towards my Customer Viewpoint (CVP) score? Are the scores included in my Ford Commitment Plan (FCP) calculations?
A. All vehicles affected by this recall are over the 5 years/75,000 scoring criteria which makes them ineligible for CVP Score and FCP calculations. Completed surveys will be reported as “Recall Over 5/75” and that means they are NOT included in their CVP/FCP scores.
Q7. Why do I need to contact the SSSC every 30 days to request a new long term rental approval code?
A. This allows dealers to submit the warranty claim every month to be reimbursed for the last 30 days of rental vehicle expense. This also provides a check point to verify if parts are available to complete the recall and to renew any rental vehicle contracts.
Q6. Can my Dealership use Quick Lane bays and Technicians to complete this recall?
A. At the dealers discretion, dealers with Quick Lanes may now use Quick Lane service bays and Quick Lane technicians to perform Takata Airbag Recalls.

  • Claim processing, hazardous material handling and parts returns MUST be processed through the main dealership’s warranty submission process and parts department.
  • No other warranty or recall repairs are allowed at Quick Lanes at this time.

(PROGRAMA DE SEGURIDAD IMPORTANTE)

 

Aviso de campaña de seguridad 17S42 / campañas de la NHTSA 17V787 y 17V788
Aviso de Revisión de Seguridad 17S42

 

Sr. Juan Pérez
Calle Principal 123
Ciudad, EE. UU. 12345

 

Número de identificación del vehículo (VIN):  12345678901234567

HAY UNA REPARACIÓN PARA EFECTUAR EN SU VEHÍCULO 

Este aviso se le envía de acuerdo con la Ley nacional de seguridad y tránsito de vehículos de EE. UU.

Ford Motor Company ha determinado que su vehículo presenta un defecto relacionado con la seguridad del motor, con el VIN que aparece más arriba.

Lamentamos esta situación y deseamos asegurarle que, con su ayuda, corregiremos el problema.  Nuestro compromiso, junto con el de su distribuidor, es ofrecerle servicio y apoyo de alto nivel.

¿Cuál es el problema? Los infladores de la bolsa de aire del conductor y del pasajero en su vehículo podrían detonar en caso de choque y causar el despliegue de la bolsa de aire delantera.  Si detona un inflador, se podrían desprender fragmentos de metal y golpear al conductor o a otros ocupantes y provocarles lesiones graves o incluso la muerte. Esta reparación es gratuita y es la reparación final para la bolsa de aire delantera tanto del conductor como del pasajero de su vehículo.

IMPORTANTE:  Los infladores de la bolsa de aire de su vehículo se deben reemplazar incluso si se reemplazaron anteriormente conforme a alguna otra campaña.

¿Qué medidas adoptarán Ford y su distribuidor? En este momento las piezas para reparar su vehículo se encuentran disponibles.  Ford Motor Company ha autorizado a su distribuidor a reemplazar los infladores de la bolsa de aire del conductor y del pasajero sin costo alguno (piezas y mano de obra).
¿Cuánto tiempo tomará? El tiempo necesario para esta reparación será de menos de medio día.  Sin embargo, debido a los requisitos de planificación de servicio, es posible que su distribuidor tarde un poco más.
¿Qué debe hacer? Llame de inmediato a su distribuidor y solicite una cita de servicio para llevar a cabo esta reparación gratuita conforme a la campaña 17S42.

Proporcione el VIN a su distribuidor, el cual está impreso debajo de sus datos al comienzo de esta carta.

¿Qué debe hacer? (continuación) Si aún no tiene un distribuidor para realizar el servicio, puede acceder a www.Fordowner.com para conocer las direcciones de los distribuidores, ver mapas y obtener las instrucciones para llegar.

Ford Motor Company le recomienda realizar esta campaña de seguridad gratuita en su vehículo.  El propietario del vehículo es responsable de realizar los arreglos necesarios para llevar a cabo el trabajo.

Tenga presente que:  la ley federal exige que los arrendadores de vehículos que reciban este aviso de campaña envíen una copia del mismo al arrendatario en un plazo de diez días.

¿Qué pasa si usted ya no es el propietario del vehículo? Si usted ya no es el propietario del vehículo y tiene la dirección del propietario actual, le solicitamos que le reenvíe esta carta.

Usted recibió este aviso porque las regulaciones del gobierno exigen el envío de notificaciones al propietario conocido más reciente del registro.  Nuestros registros se basan principalmente en datos estatales y de propiedad, que indican que usted es el propietario actual del vehículo.

¿Podemos hacer algo más por usted? Si tiene problemas para reparar de inmediato su vehículo y sin costo alguno, comuníquese con el Gerente de Servicio de su distribuidor para solicitar ayuda.

PROPIETARIOS MINORISTAS:  Si tiene dudas o preguntas, comuníquese con nuestro Centro de Relación con Clientes Ford al 1-866-436-7332 y uno de nuestros representantes con gusto lo atenderán.  Si desea comunicarse con nosotros a través de Internet, nuestra dirección es:  www.Fordowner.com.

Las personas con problemas de audición pueden llamar al 1-800-232-5952 (TDD).  Los representantes están disponibles de lunes a viernes:  8:00 am a 8:00 pm(hora del Este).

PROPIETARIOS DE FLOTAS:  Si tiene dudas o preguntas, comuníquese con nuestro Centro de Información a Clientes de flotas al 1-800-34FLEET, elija la opción n.° 3 y uno de nuestros representantes con gusto lo atenderá.  Si desea comunicarse con nosotros a través de Internet, nuestra dirección es:  www.fleet.ford.com.

Los representantes están disponibles de lunes a viernes:  8:00 am a 8:00 pm(hora del Este).

Si aun así tiene problemas para reparar su vehículo en un periodo de tiempo razonable o sin costo alguno, puede escribir al Administrador en el National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Ave. S.E., Washington, D.C. 20590, llamar a la Línea directa de seguridad vehicular al 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153) o bien visite www.safercar.gov. Mencione la Campaña de seguridad 17V787 y 17V788 de la NHTSA
