Ford recalls for models in the UK over faulty software

There is a new recall taking place in the UK, and this time for the Ford Edge, Galaxy, S-Max and the Mondeo due to an issue with their adaptive headlights.

So what’s the cause? There seems to be an issue with the software, and it’s this faulty software that can actually cause the headlights to turn off. This is a huge issue, especially when driving in low-light conditions.

If these adaptive LED headlamps were to fail, then this could increase the possibility of an accident if driving at night, and so has forced Ford to issue this new recall.

Car Recalls have reported that the affected models were built from 06/10/2014 to 08/02/2016. In terms of learning if your model is afftemed, then you will need to check your vehicle ID, because if they are WF0KXXWPCKEA28619 to WF0KXXWPCKGR68630 — 2FMTK4A30GBB01678 to FMTK4A31GBB06971 — WF0EXXWPCEFD30710 to WF0FXXWPCFFY80078 and WF0JXXWPCJEA28610 to WF0JXXWPCJGR68817, then you will need to contact Ford.

Having said that, we are sure you will be contacted in due course so that Ford will be able to update their software.
