Ford has just issued a safety recall for certain 2019 Ford Ranger trucks for an issue which can increase the risk of the HVAC blower motor overheating in the affected vehicles.
In affected vehicles, the HVAC blower motor may have been built with an improper clearance between an electrical terminal and the conductive base-plate slot that may result in a resistive electrical short.
There were six reports of this issue prior to the vehicles’ delivery to the dealership and no reports of any incidents or accidents related to the condition. Ford indicates that the recall affects 17,965 vehicles in the U.S. and 1,544 vehicles in Canada.
