Ford Motor Company has issued two safety recalls and a safety compliance recall in North America including safety recall for select 2019-20 Ford F-150 vehicles for improperly secured positive battery-terminal fastener, safety recall for select 2016-17 Lincoln MKX vehicles with 3.7-liter engines and safety compliance recall for select 2018-19 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles with LED headlamps

Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety recall for select 2019-20 Ford F-150 vehicles for a positive battery-terminal fastener that may not be secured due to wiring eyelet adhesive on the surface area of the terminal joint contact for the battery-monitoring sensor. An attachment that is not secure may result in intermittent or inoperative vehicle systems, affecting instrument panel displays, braking or steering assist, or causing the engine to stall. This condition could also create a resistive short, increasing the potential for smoke, melting or risk of fire. This action affects 135,725 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 30,073 in Canada, and 2,257 in Mexico. Affected vehicles were built at Dearborn Truck Plant from July 15 to Oct. 1, 2019, and at Kansas City Assembly Plant from June 24 to Oct. 1, 2019.

Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety recall for select 2016-17 Lincoln MKX vehicles with 3.7-liter engines. In affected vehicles, the battery cable harness may have substandard clearance, which could allow the harness to contact the transmission shifter cable bracket. Contact between the battery cable harness and the transmission shifter cable bracket could wear through the insulation of the cable, resulting in the cable shorting to ground, increasing the risk of overheated or melted wiring, as well as fire. This action affects 54,411 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories and 5,253 in Canada. Affected vehicles were built at Oakville Assembly Plant from Nov. 12, 2014, to Sept. 11, 2017.

Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety compliance recall for select 2018-19 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles with LED headlamps. Affected vehicles are equipped with high-series daytime running lamps controlled by an incorrectly configured body control module. When the daytime running lamps are illuminated and the master lighting switch is moved to the low-beam position, the daytime running lamps do not revert to parking lamp intensity as required by federal motor vehicle safety standards. This action affects 86,296 vehicles in the US and federal territories and 14,079 in Canada. Affected vehicles were built at Kentucky Truck Plant:
