Ford Motor Company is recalling some 2020 Ford Expedition models over issues with the SUV’s Pre-Collision Assist Features.
The defect: affected vehicles are equipped with nonfunctioning Pre-Collision Assist features, including Forward Collision Warning, Dynamic Brake Support and Automatic Emergency Braking. This condition may prevent notifications to the driver indicating the features are inoperative.
The hazards: an inoperative Pre-Collision Assist system may not detect or reduce the risk or severity of a frontal collision. In fact, it could increase the risk of an injury or crash if the driver is relying on assistance from the system.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this Ford Expedition recall.
Components: active safety / pre-collision systems.
Affected vehicles: 2020 Ford Expedition models equipped with the standard camera-only Pre-Collision Assist system built at the Ford Kentucky Truck plant between April 16th, 2019 and March 20th, 2019.
Vehicles involved in this Ford Expedition recall include 25,081 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories as well as 1,106 in Canada. These figures also include the similarly-recalled 2020 Lincoln Navigator.

The fix: dealers will reprogram the body control module, antilock braking system, instrument panel cluster and headlamp control modules with the appropriate software calibration. Reprogramming will also require a tire pressure monitor system reset.
Owners should: contact their local Ford dealer.
