The recall information below is provided directly from the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 28000

On those passenger vehicles with factory or dealer-installed deck lid spoilers with LED center high-mounted stop lamps (CHMSL), with the ignition switch in the START or RUN positions and the hazard warning lights operating, the CHMSL can illuminate (at reduced intensity) even though the service brakes have not been applied. This does not meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, ALamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.@ Also, in some cases the vehicle brake-shift interlock would not function properly allowing the shift lever to be moved from PARK without applying the brake. Vehicles produced with spoilers were manufactured from March 1 through Oct. 31, 2000; and vehicles with spoilers installed by dealers were manufactured from Jan. 1 through Dec. 30, 2000.

Dealers will install a jumper/resistor assembly at the spoiler that provides an electrical resistor to ground and corrects the CHMSL and brake-shift interlock conditions. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin on March 19, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.

Dates of Manufacture:
March - December 2000
