Due to Power Window Defect, Certain Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs Recalled
Approximately 360 vehicles are affected by this recall
Ford is recalling certain model year 2018 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs.
What's the problem?
The second row window control modules on the affected vehicles may intermittently stop the movement of the power window.
If something, such as a finger, is pinched by the window glass, the stopped window control module may prevent the window from automatically reversing. This could lead to an injury.
Safety Standard Violation
Because of this problem, these vehicles also fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 118, "Power-Operated Window Systems."
Approximately 360 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs are included in this recall.
What happens next?
Owners of the recalled vehicles will be notified by Ford beginning in early February 2018. Ford dealers will then inspect the second row window electronic control modules, and replace them as necessary based on their build date codes, free of charge.
