2018 EcoSport Recall

Postby Charles - July 6th, 2018, 6:59 am

Saw this on another site.

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 Ford Ecosport vehicles sold in the United States Federal Territories. These vehicles were shipped with the European brake reservoir pictogram cap label and the European English language owner’s manual kits. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 135, “Light Vehicle Brake Systems.” Owners could be confused by the incorrect label on the brake fluid cap, potentially causing them to replace the brake fluid with an incorrect fluid which could affect brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash. Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake fluid cap and owner’s manual kit, free of charge. The recall was expected to begin June 18, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 18C04.

I saw that. Though I'm not involved with that one. I am included on this one though. It's minor. But I'm having it done in a week or so.

Customer Satisfaction Program 18B07 – Body Control Module Programming – 2018 Ford EcoSport
When a customer uses the remote start through either SYNC connect or with a Factory Invoiced Accessory (FIA) remote start, the powertrain malfunction lamp (wrench lamp) will illuminate, the See Manual message will appear in the Instrument Panel Cluster Message Center, and Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P166A will set in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). There is no impact to vehicle functionality, but the warnings will remain illuminated for the duration of the drive cycle every time remote start is used. These warnings will not appear on subsequent drive cycles when the remote start feature is not used to start the vehicle
