2022 Ford F-150 Recalled Over Steering Column Wiring Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2022 Ford F-150 trucks due to a safety issue with steering column wiring.

Components: steering column wiring harness.

Affected vehicles: select 2022 Ford F-150 trucks built between September 14th, 2021 and February 25th, 2022 at the Ford Dearborn Truck plant and truck built between October 21st, 2021 and February 24th, 2022 at the Ford Kansas City plant.

Number of vehicles affected: 19,175

The fix: dealers will inspect the steering column wiring harness and repair the wiring if necessary, free of charge.

    Question I ordered a 2022 F150 Lariat 4×4 supercrew with 3.5 Eco boost when can I expect to Receive it Ordered on 3/22 in California .Thankyou

      Contact your dealer.

      I ordered my new truck 1/14, and it was delivered – with no missing parts – 2/16. Hint: it wasn’t a Ford or GM

  2. Pete Henderson

    I’ve test drove these vehicles before they were mass produced, The Mustang X, The F-150 Lighting. The battery power is insufficient, they only get between 110-230 miles on a full charge, and that’s in the Summer.

    With Ford putting all of their chips in the Lightning, where does that leave Ford’s loyal repeat customers with the rest of Ford’s vehicles that are not built yet? Why put all of your eggs (chips) in one basket with the EVs. You forgot your loyal ICE customers again. I ordered an F150 King Ranch in December and no word from Ford about scheduling the build now over 4 months later. Ford is going to lose customers because they are so focused on the EVs and they dismiss the weak economy and high interest rates. There are not as many ready, willing and able buyers as out there as Ford thinks and the buyer pool is shrinking as inflation increases. Just because Farley makes millions does not mean that he is making good decisions for Ford. Take care of your loyal customers, then go exploring.

    More and more recalls from Ford. Rush to production? GM is famous for using the American consumer as their unpaid test pilots. Perhaps “built cheaper” to maximize profits DING DING DING !!! Now that sounds like the American way!
    Need I say more? Yes, I do. Has anyone looked at the top 3 imports recalls?
    I have not bought new since my 2010 Hemi Ram Sport. The financial hits are not worth it. At 7,800 it needed a front strut replaced, 2003 Excursion Limited needed the headlight box replaced, driveshaft, headliner and cd player all before 38,000. But they are built “Ford Tough” … If you say it enough times, it must be true.

    I’ve been trying to get a 2022 F150 for months with a real gas engine and the dealerships in NJ are playing games! Kinda pathetic for a 3 time repeating customer to get jerked around like this in order to maintain a huge profit margin!
