2024 Ford Mustang Recalled Over Brake Fluid Warning Light

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain units of the 2024 Ford Mustang due to an issue with the pony car’s brake fluid warning light.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the brake fluid level sensor was not properly configured after a Body Control Module (BCM) service update, which can result in a constantly illuminated brake fluid level warning indicator. This may mask an actual low brake fluid condition if the vehicle owner assumes the warning indicator is triggered because of a malfunction.

The hazards: if low brake fluid goes undetected, it could lead to loss of braking function, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford is aware of five warranty claims and two field reports in the U.S. regarding a malfunctioning brake fluid warning light in the 2024 Ford Mustang. However, Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

Components: BCM software

Affected vehicles: select 2024 Ford Mustang models built at the Flat Rock Assembly plant between October 22nd, 2022 and February 8th, 2024.

Number of affected vehicles: 10

The fix: dealers will update the BCM software, free of charge to vehicle owners.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which began on June 28th, 2024. The Ford reference number for this recall is 24S43.
