TO: All U.S. Ford and Lincoln Dealers

SUBJECT: NEW VEHICLE DEMONSTRATION / DELIVERY HOLD  Compliance Recall 20C03
Certain 2018 – 2020 Model Year F150 with LED Headlamps
Daytime Running Lamp Function

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Vehicle Model Year Assembly Plant Build Dates
F150 2018 -2020 Dearborn January 5, 2017 through October 10, 2019
F150 2018-2020 Kansas January 25, 2017 through September 10, 2019

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS and FSA VIN Lists.

 

REASON FOR THIS COMPLIANCE RECALL

Some of the affected vehicles may not conform to requirements specified by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 108 for Daytime Running Lamp (DRL) function, which require the DRLs to be deactivated whenever the headlamps are on. On these vehicles, it is possible that the DRLs remain activated if headlamp switch is manually rotated from “Auto” to ”Low beam” during daylight hours, instead of dimming to parking lamps. This results in a higher than permitted lighting output.

 

SERVICE ACTION

Before demonstrating or delivering any new in-stock vehicles involved in this recall, dealers are to update the As-Built Data in the Body Control Module using the Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS) tool following the technical instructions. This service must be performed on all affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION AND MAILING SCHEDULE

Owner letters are expected to be mailed the week of March 09, 2020. Dealers should repair any affected 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.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

Module Reprogramming

NOTE:  Reprogram appropriate vehicle modules before performing diagnostics and clear all DTCs after         programming.  For DTCs generated after reprogramming, follow normal diagnostic service procedures.

 

1.  Connect a battery charger to the 12V battery.

 

NOTE:  Make sure the IDS computer does not enter sleep mode during programming.

 

2.  Program the Body Control Module (BCM) using As-built Data.

a. Select Module Programming, then As-Built.

b. Select BCM then follow the on screen instructions to complete the programming.

    • When prompted:  Were you directed here from another procedure such as Programmable Module Installation or Module Reprogramming to obtain part numbers?  Select NO.  See Figure 1A.
    • When prompted:  This function resets configuration data in the module back to its factory settings.  Only the configuration data is changed during this process.  This routine does not affect the calibration level of the module.  Select Continue. See Figure 1B.
    • When prompted:  You have 2 options for entering As-Built data into the module, Manual or Automatic.  Select Automatic.  See Figure 1C.

3.  Once IDS programming is complete, check and clear any DTCs.

4.  Disconnect the battery charger from the 12V battery once the reprogramming has completed.

 

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.

FORD MOTOR COMPANY ISSUES A SAFETY COMPLIANCE RECALL AND TWO SAFETY RECALLS

DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 25, 2020 – Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety compliance recall and two safety recalls in North America. Details are as follows:

 

Safety compliance recall for select 2018-20 Ford F-150 vehicles with LED headlamps
Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for select 2018-20 Ford F-150 vehicles with LED headlamps. When the daytime running lamps on affected vehicles are illuminated and the master lighting switch is manually rotated from the autolamp position to the headlamp-on (low-beam) position, the daytime running lamps remain activated instead of dimming to parking lamp intensity as required by federal motor vehicle safety standards. This may reduce the visibility of other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

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

This action affects 166,196 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories and 50,989 in Canada.

Affected vehicles were built at Dearborn Truck Plant, Jan. 5, 2017, to Oct. 10, 2019, and Kansas City Assembly Plant, Jan. 25, 2017, to Oct. 10, 2019.

Dealers will update the body control module software configuration. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20C03.

 

Safety recall for select 2015-16 Ford F-150 vehicles for engine block heater cable
Ford is issuing a safety recall for select 2015-16 Ford F-150 vehicles equipped with engine heater elements and 3.5-liter GTDI engines. Depending on the heater element location, some vehicles may have cables with insufficient heat protection and incorrect length. Prolonged exposure to high temperatures can cause a resistive short, inoperative engine block heater, and/or tripping of household breakers or GFCI-equipped outlets while the vehicle is parked and the block heater is plugged in.

The risk to safety exists only while the vehicle is parked and the block heater cable is plugged into an electrical outlet. A resistive short in the engine-block heater splice connector can increase the risk of overheated or melted wiring and fire. Customers are advised to not use the engine block heater cable until their vehicle is inspected.

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

This action affects 13,854 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories and 19,679 in Canada.

Affected vehicles were built at Dearborn Truck Plant July 31, 2014, to Sept. 27, 2016, and Kansas City Assembly Plant, Feb. 10, 2015, to Oct. 15, 2016.

Dealers will inspect the block heater and cable and repair or replace as necessary. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S08.

 

Safety recall for select 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty and 2021 Ford E-Series vehicles
Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety recall for select 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty and 2021 Ford E-Series vehicles. In some affected vehicles, there may be an inadequate amount of axle lubricant. This can result in bearing seizure, leading to component fracture and driveshaft separation from the rear axle. In the event of a rear-axle pinion stem fracture, customers would experience loss of vehicle motive power and loss of the park function. If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of injury or crash.

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

This action affects 319 vehicles in the U.S. and seven in Canada.

Affected vehicles include:

  • 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant Jan. 12-14, 2020
  • 2021 Ford E-Series vehicles built at Ohio Assembly Plant Jan. 2-16, 2020

Dealers will check the differential fluid level. If the fluid is at the proper level, no further action will be taken. If the fluid level is determined to be low, the rear axle assembly will be replaced. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S09.
