Ford Motor Company is recalling 6,792 model year 2017 F-150 trucks equipped with an eight-inch productivity screen. In these vehicles, the instrument cluster may lose power after the initial vehicle start-up in cold ambient temperatures.

Several gauges, including the transmission gear position indicator, may not illuminate. If the transmission gear position indicator fails to illuminate, the driver may be unable to tell the transmission shift position, increasing the risk of a crash or injury from unintended vehicle movement.

Ford will notify owners of the recalled F-150 trucks, and dealers will reprogram the instrument cluster, free of charge. Owners with additional questions can contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332.

Ford's reference number for this recall is 17C01.
