Ford has recalled F-Series 327,000 trucks again in the ongoing effort to fix engine heater cables that could spark a fire in the vehicle.
874,000 trucks were recalled in December because water and contaminants can get into the cables and cause corrosion. This would cause a potential fire hazard. However, during the original inspections to fix this, some of the repairs may have damaged the cables. The recall covers F-150s from 2015 through 2019, as well as Super Duty trucks from 2017 through 2019.
Dealers will now disable the cables for all recalled trucks by cutting the prongs that go into electrical outlets. They will then get new cables when the parts become available.
