Ford is issuing a safety recall for select 2017-19 Ford F-250, F-350 and F-450 Super Duty vehicles for unintended tailgate opening. In affected vehicles with an electric tailgate latch-release switch mounted in the tailgate handle, water entering the electrical wiring system may cause a short circuit, resulting in unintended switch activation and release of the tailgate latches. This could cause the tailgate to open unintentionally, whether the vehicle is in motion or stationary. This condition may result in the loss of unrestrained cargo, increasing the risk of a crash. Vehicles with a mechanical tailgate release handle are not affected. This action affects 231,664 vehicles in the US and federal territories and 29,953 in Canada. Affected vehicles were built at Kentucky Truck Plant from Oct 8, 2015, to Nov 3, 2019.

Ford is issuing a safety recall for select 2020 Ford Explorer and 2020 Lincoln Aviator vehicles. In some affected vehicles, the convolute protective sleeve on the liquid fuel line is not long enough, which may allow for potential hard contact with the convolute-protected vapor fuel line. Over time, with vibration and engine roll, hard contact between the two fuel lines could cause the convolute on the vapor fuel line to rub through the plastic liquid fuel line. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.This action affects 3,858 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 35 in Canada, and seven in Mexico. Affected vehicles were built at Chicago Assembly Plant
Ford Explorer vehicles built Jan. 18-July 17, 2019
Lincoln Aviator vehicles built Jan. 15-July 17, 2019
