A 2018-2019 Ford F-Series Super Duty recall has been issued for certain models that are fitted with LED headlights. This is a safety compliance recall because a defect with the LED headlights could make the trucks fail to meet federal motor vehicle safety standards. Ford previously issued a 2019 F-Series Super Duty recall due to the rear axle assembly.
The defect: 2018 and 2019 F-Series Super Duty trucks with LED headlamps may have an incorrectly configured body control module.
The hazards: if the body control module is incorrectly configured when the daytime running lamps are illuminated, and the master lighting switch is in the low beam configuration, the daytime running lamps don’t revert to parking lamp intensity as required by federal motor vehicle safety standards.
Components: body control module
Affected vehicles: 2018 Super Duty trucks built at the Oakville Assembly Plant from May 1st, 2017, to July 13th, 2018. 2019 Super Duty Trucks built from March 5th 2018, to October 8th, 2019.
Number of affected vehicles: the recall covers 86,296 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, and 14,709 in Canada.
