Ford Motor Company Issues Safety Compliance Recall on Select 2019 Fusion Energi Vehicles

DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 19, 2019 – Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for select 2019 Ford Fusion Energi vehicles that do not meet the enhanced level of high voltage access protection required by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards 305. This condition could allow contact with an uncovered high voltage fuse through a small gap behind the access panel. Contact with high voltage sources potentially increases the risk of injury.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from this condition.

This action affects approximately 2,100 vehicles in the United States.

Affected vehicles were built Oct. 1, 2018 to Dec. 14, 2018 at Hermosillo Assembly Plant.

Dealers will install a cover over the high voltage battery electrical center. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19C05.
