Ford Motor Company Issues Safety Recall for Select 2019 Ford Ranger Vehicles for Tail Lamp Function

DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 25, 2019 – Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety recall for select 2019 Ford Ranger vehicles.

In affected vehicles, the inline electrical connector terminals for the tail lamps may be misaligned or not properly seated. Misaligned or improperly seated terminals can result in intermittent or inoperative tail lamps. Intermittent or inoperative tail lamps can result in loss of stop, turn, rear position, and reverse lamps, which can reduce the vehicle’s visibility and may not fully alert other drivers that the vehicle is braking, turning, or reversing, increasing the risk of a crash. The high-mounted center stop lamp is not affected.

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

This action affects 72,718 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories and 5,546 in Canada.

Affected vehicles were built at Michigan Assembly Plant from June 4, 2018, to Aug. 16, 2019.

Dealers will inspect the underbody inline connector and, if a terminal is loose, it will be re-pinned into a replacement connector. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S43.
