 Ford Recall 14,000 Fusion Hybrid Electric Vehicles Battery Issue2019, 2020 Ford Fusion EVs Recalled

Owners of certain Ford Fusion Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are being advised under a new recall not to charge them due to a battery issue.

Roughly 14,452 vehicles, specifically the 2019 to 2020 Fusion Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), are subject to this recall. The automaker says the vehicles are equipped with a battery energy control module (BECM) that could become damaged from excessive voltage and current flow, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

If the BECM becomes damaged, the driver could experience a loss of drive power or it could ignite a fire. This creates a risk of injury or death if there is a collision, according to the federal safety regulator report.

Owners of these vehicles are being told to wait for the remedy to fix the battery energy control module, but the remedy is under development and its completion date is unknown.

Meanwhile, Ford will send out a letter on July 10th to notify owners of the issue. Once the remedy is determined, a second letter will advise Ford owners they can take their vehicles to the dealership for repairs.

Owners who wish to contact Ford may call their customer service line at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 23S33.
