Ford Recalls Certain Vehicles for Power Window Defect

Ford Motor Company has issued a recall for certain 2018 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles. The recall is for defective second row power windows that may not automatically reverse if obstructed by an object, increasing the risk of injury. The company issued the recall on January 16, and approximately 361 vehicles may be affected.

“The second row window control modules 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,” the recall states. “As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 118, ‘Power-Operated Window Systems.’”

Ford will notify owners of the specified vehicles, and dealers will inspect the second row window electronic control modules and replace them, as necessary, at no cost to the owner. According to the notice, the manufacturer expects the recall to begin February 5.
