What happened: The recalls are related to a software glitch that may result in an inability to provide adequate warning of low tire pressure and covers 2,666 US vehicles and 220 in Canada, according to the report.
There are no accidents or injuries related to the recall, according to Ford.
The truck’s tire pressure monitoring system warning light may not illuminate when expected and may not be able to provide adequate warning of low tire inflation pressure, which may result in a poor vehicle handling and possible loss of vehicle control which could increase the risk of an accident.
