Ford is recalling approximately 198,480 model-year 2015-2017 Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles due to a fire risk. The problem is with the blower motor, which runs the fan that circulates air throughout the vehicle’s cabin and is located behind the glove compartment. A faulty component in the blower motor could fail, increasing the risk of a vehicle interior fire.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on September 12, 2022. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 888-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will replace the blower motor assembly.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
