2014-2015 Ford Fusion Recalled Over Braking System Safety Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2014-2015 Ford Fusion models over a braking system safety issue.

The defect: in affected vehicles, exposure to certain environmental conditions, such as high temperatures, high humidity, and salt air can cause the brake pedal bumper to disintegrate and separate from the brake pedal.

The hazards: a separated brake pedal bumper can cause the brake lights to illuminate continuously, causing confusion to other drivers and increasing the risk of a crash. On automatic transmission-equipped vehicles, a missing brake pedal bumper can allow the driver to shift the vehicle out of the park position without depressing the brake, allowing the vehicle to roll away, increasing the risk of injury.

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

Components: brake pedal bumper.

Affected vehicles: select 2014-2015 Ford Fusion models produced at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant between October 1st, 2013, and April 17th, 2015, and the Ford Hermosillo Assembly Plant from October 1st, 2013, through April 6th, 2015.

Number of vehicles affected: 134,055 vehicles.

The fix: dealers will replace the brake pedal bumpers and clutch pedal bumpers, free of charge.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which will begin on March 3rd, 2022. The Ford reference number for this recall is 22S02.

    I guess FORD just can’t STOP all of these problems. 😀
    Sheesh.

      That is not a “problem” because they can still drive the cars. It makes driving more entertaining as drivers behind them guessing if the Fusion is riding on the brakes all the time.

    I have this problem now in my 2014 Fusion Hybrid. Since the brake lights are LEDs, the power consumed will not run down the battery. A temporary solution is to disconnect the wire connector from the brake switch but that will not allow the driver to start or even shift from “Park”. The BCM prevents running the vehicle if it cannot detect the brakes were pressed. I will call my dealer to let them know.

    A solution would be to design it so this doesn’t happen in the first place. Oh wait that makes way too much sense.

    I had the same issue with my 2015 Mustang in November of 2019. The car would not run properly , the computer thought the brake was applied. Took to dealer cost Close to $500.00 to replace brake pedal assembly. .05 cent plastic button would have fixed the issue. Hopefully they will reimburse me!!

    I have a friend who has a 2016 fusion. No acceleration, brake light staying on. Found the brake switch bumper to be the issue. Ford dealer wouldn’t honor the recall for the 2014 -2015 fusion on the 2016 fusion even though the 2016 has a door jam ID date of 4/15 but the vin states it to be 2016. Ford suxs. $ 9.00 for the part, Labor is free ( I am fixing it). Got to make that money back somehow, crooks !!
