2021 Ford Bronco Recalled Over Misaligned Radar Module Safety Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2021 Ford Bronco models over a misaligned radar module safety issue. Select 2021 Ford Ranger models are also being recalled for the same problem, as Ford Authority recently reported.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the cruise control radar module was misaligned during production.

The hazards: a misaligned radar module may prevent the vehicle from maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles when adaptive cruise control is active. Additionally, 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.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

Components: cruise control radar module.

Affected vehicles: select 2021 Ford Bronco models produced at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant.

Number of vehicles affected: 251 vehicles.

The fix: dealers will adjust the angle of the cruise control radar module, free of charge.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which will begin on February 7th, 2022. The Ford reference number for this recall is 21S52.
