December 16, 2021 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 21V982000
A misaligned radar module may prevent the vehicle from maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles when adaptive cruise control is active. In addition, the automatic emergency braking (AEB) system may react slowly, or not react at all, during a pre-collision assist braking event. Any of these scenarios can increase the risk of a crash.

|Vehicle||Model Year||Assembly Plant||Build Dates|

|Bronco||February 26, 2021 through July 13, 2021|
REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL
In some of the affected vehicles, the cruise control module (CCM) radar may have been misaligned during assembly. A misaligned CCM radar can cause the vehicle to have a closer-than-expected following distance when using the Adaptive Cruise Control feature, and the Automatic Emergency Braking system may react late resulting in sudden loss of speed during an automatic Pre-Collision Assist braking event. Additionally, the forward collision warning system may react late or not at all. The Pre-Collision Assist system’s effectiveness to detect a potential frontal collision may be compromised, increasing the risk of a crash.
Before demonstrating or delivering any new in-stock vehicles involved in this recall, dealers are to perform the vertical alignment procedure on the CCM. This service must be performed on all affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner.
Note: Parts are not available to service Ranger models at this time. This bulletin is expected to be supplemented by the end of 2nd quarter 2022 with updated information when parts become available.
OWNER NOTIFICATION AND MAILING SCHEDULE
Parts to repair this condition are currently not available to service affected Ranger models. Therefore, to ensure an ample supply of parts is available, owners of affected vehicles will be notified in two separate mailings. Mailing will begin by the week of January 17, 2022, for Bronco models. Dealers should repair any affected vehicles that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.
Owners of Ranger models will receive an Owner Notification Mailing by the week of February 21, 2022.
NOTE: Check Ranger parts availability before performing this recall.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Federal law prohibits selling motor vehicle parts or components that are under safety, compliance, or emissions recall. Unless a part is requested to be returned to Ford, all parts replaced under this FSA must be scrapped in accordance with all applicable local, state and federal environmental protection and hazardous material regulations. Refer to the Parts Retention, Return, & Scrapping section of the FSA dealer bulletin for further information.
On July 15, 2021, an issue pertaining to Ford Ranger and Bronco vehicles with misaligned cruise control radar modules was brought to Ford’s Critical Concern Review Group (CCRG) for review. The assembly plant discovered that three of the four stations that perform cruise control module radar calibration were using an incorrect calibration program.
An investigation was conducted to understand the effect of potential incorrect radar calibration, which could vary depending on the vehicle configuration and ride height. Analysis found that radars aligned with the incorrect programming could be up to 2.6 degrees lower than design intent, which is outside of Ford’s specification.
Numerous reviews were conducted with Product Engineering to understand the potential effect on vehicle Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Pre-Collision Assist (PCA) features as part of the Advanced Automatic Emergency Braking system. These analyses included the potential for false-positive activations, delayed activations, vehicle deceleration rates and speed ranges. The ACC and PCA features use information from the vehicle’s forward-looking radar and camera sensors to detect and track objects in the host vehicle path. When the radar and camera are not aligned according to specification, there is a possibility the information provided by the radar and camera is inaccurate.
Based on results of these reviews it was determined that complete assessment of the potential effect on vehicle function would require physical vehicle testing under a wide variety of vehicle operating conditions for this concern, which would take an extensive period of time. The parameters of Ford’s agreement to the March 2016 “Commitments to Advancing Automatic Emergency Braking Technology” were reviewed.
On December 9, 2021, Ford’s Field Review Committee reviewed the concern and approved a field action.
A review of field data found no reports pertaining to this subject.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.
