Sounds to me like they are jerking your chain!
They want the extra 5K in your financing
I don’t think so. They quickly found another one and it will be here Friday. So now they’re stuck with the other one until who knows when.

This issue occurred on my truck when I bought it in June. It was replaced before the recall was issued. I called the Ford dealer and they certified that it was fixed during the original repair.
So does your owner.ford.com/vin show as affected/repaired or something?

I just checked and my VIN is listed for the recall: build date 04/17/19. I am going to get under the truck and see if i can see any damage.

You get the fast blinker sound inside the cab like you have a bulb out...that's how i found out.
I need to bring mine in and watch the tech go slowly insane as they try to figure out why the fast blinker is still going. I replaced my front turn indicators with LED. I wonder if an OBD2 diagnostic would figure that one out...I don't have much faith in the techs actually looking at the lights themselves...;D

First is a continuity test of the tail light ground circuit. The covers for the connector are removed and the black wire, pin 20, is tugged on both sides to verify proper fitment. Then all wires in the center row on both male and female connectors are lightly tugged individually to verify they are fully engaged in place and the pin lock tabs are in place. If it passes it's reassembled. If it fails the connector is separated to inspect the pins for damage, the vehicle is then repaired as necessary with the required hardshell(s) and individual pins. Here's some neat pictures.

Broken hard shell on new in stock truck.

I've inspected 4 trucks today. 2 need hardshells with no pins and 2 passed inspection.
@Willcuts93 do you have a little better pic of where this connector is located under the truck? I'd like to inspect mine myself.

I received my recall notice through my Ford Pass app today.

I’ll make an appointment soon to have it looked at but I have not had any issues yet.

My Rangers build date was 3/19 and I just received a recall notice on my Ford pass app, I thought the recall was later builds, I am pleased to see that Ford is recalling mine to check for any issue on my truck that has to do with the tail light problem.
Ford said "We are sending out letters to dealers and owners about this issues and will repair for free if a fix is needed"
I read somewhere that our vins last numbers is the number that have been built
and if that is true mine is in one of first 20 k ones built.

Had mine in for 10k service so I asked them to check mine since I was on the recall. All was good with mine, no issues.

I've inspected a total of 8 rangers now. Still only 2 require repair.
Hi Matt,

I crawled under mine for a visual inspection and didn't observe any indication of connector shell cracking..I left things undisturbed as I did not wish to destroy any "evidence"... Think all is well with my Ranger, but will submit it to the dealer when I get the notice of the recall. Paid the price of wriggling these 70 year old bones under the truck though...sigh...Wife had to apply CBD pain cream to my back...:whew:

Best,

Just saw the recall notice today when I used Ford Pass to auto start the truck. Guess I will have to set up appointment with dealer. I knew this form was the place to go before doing that. Thanks everyone.
