2023-2024 Ford Escape Recalled Over Misaligned Radar Module

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2023 and 2024 Ford Escape models due to a misalignment in the cruise control radar module.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the front radar calibration board position was not centered on the cruise control radar module. This may result in the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) misclassifying an overhead object as an object in the vehicle’s path.

The hazards: if the vehicle detects what it misidentifies as an object in its path, it will slow and/or stop unexpectedly. If the vehicle decelerates unexpectedly, this can increase the risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents, injuries, or fires related to this condition.

Components: Cruise Control Module (CCM)

Affected vehicles: select 2023 and 2024 Ford Escape models produced at the Louisville Assembly plant in Kentucky between April 19th and November 9th, 2023.

Number of vehicles affected: 209

The fix: dealers will inspect and realign the cruise control radar as needed. This procedure will be performed at no cost to vehicle owners.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which will begin being mailed out on July 1st, 2024. The Ford reference number for this recall is 24S39.
