Ford is recalling about 1,550 Lincoln MKT vehicles due to a vacuum pump relay that may overheat.

In certain model year 2013-2015 Lincoln MKT vehicles with a limousine and hearse prep package, the vacuum pump relay may overheat due to an internal fault or contamination.

If the vacuum pump relay overheats, there is an increased risk of a vehicle fire.

Ford will notify owners affected by the recall and dealers will replace the vacuum pump relay with a new electro-mechanical relay, free of charge.

For more information, owners can contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332.
