Ford Expands F-150 Recall Due To Short In Airbag System

2005_Ford_F150The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Ford are expanding a recall of 2004-2006 Ford F-150 trucks because a possible short in the airbag system might cause the airbags to unexpectedly inflate and cause a hazard.

The recall also includes the 2006 model Lincoln/Mark LT.

If this occurs, the air bag warning lamp may come on, indicating a need for service or the driver side frontal air bad could inadvertently deploy, putting the driver and passengers at risk of injury if control of the vehicle is lost while in motion.
