Ford is recalling approximately 383,000 SUVs because the touch screens may not display a camera image when backing up. The recall affects some Ford Explorers and Lincoln Aviators from 2020 to 2023, as well as some Lincoln Corsairs from 2020 to 2022. All of them have 360-degree cameras.
Safety Risk and Warranty Reports
According to the government documents released on Friday, Ford claims that the video output can fail, preventing the back camera image from being displayed. This can impair rear visibility and increase the risk of an accident. The company has received over 2,000 warranty reports about the issue. There have been 17 minor crashes, but no injuries have been reported.
Recall Expansion and Software Update
In 2021, many of the same vehicles were recalled due to the same issue. The recall widens the range of vehicles included and replaces a 2021 recall of 228,000 vehicles. Vehicles that have already been repaired will need to be repaired again. The image processing software will be updated by dealers.
