Ford Motor Co. is recalling an estimated 2,871 of its Ford E-350 and E-3450 full-size vans, due to damage to the fuel pump circuit in the wiring harness, which could result in an unexpected engine stall.
Damage to the anti-lock braking system (ABS) wiring can lead to reduction of ABS functionality and a loss of roll stability control (RSC) functionality. These scenarios increase the risk of a crash.
To fix the problem, Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the wire harness for damage. If no damage is found, dealers will apply anti-abrasion tape over the area and ensure clearance to surrounding components.
If damage is found, dealers will splice in new wire and apply anti-abrasion tape over the area and ensure clearance to surrounding components. All services will be performed free of charge.
Owners can reach Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332.
The recall begins April 13. Ford's number for this recall is 20S13.
