Ford is recalling 47,046 model-year 2021-2022 Bronco vehicles equipped with 8-inch center display screens. The rearview camera image may still display after the vehicle is shifted out of reverse. A rearview image that continues to be displayed after a backing event has ended may distract the driver, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on December 19, 2022. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, Ford will deploy an over-the-air (OTA) update to the SYNC module software. Alternatively, owners will have the option to take their vehicle to a Ford dealer to complete the software update.
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.
