Ford recalls 58K Focus models again due to incomplete software update

Ford recalls 58K Focus models again due to incomplete software update”

The recall is related to an issue from past year, where Ford recalled more than 1.5 million vehicles for that issue. While the issue was supposed to be remedied, there apparently exists a smaller subset of vehicles that didn't get the problem cleaned up, so in order to make that happen, Ford has issued a second recall.

Ford has issued a recall for about 58,000 Focus models in North America due to the fact that a software update as part of a previous recall was incomplete. If the valve is stuck open, an excessive vacuum can deform the fuel tank and cause inaccurate fuel gauge indication or loss of power.

Affected vehicles include previously recalled 2012 through 2017 Focus cars equipped with the 2.0-litre GDI engine; and 2013 and 2014 Focus ST trims with the 2.0-litre GTDI.

Dealers will update the faulty software and replace fuel canister purge valves, if they've been damaged by the software. Ford says it is unaware of any reports of crashes or injuries related to this issue.

The cars were built at the Wayne Assembly plant outside of Detroit, Ford said.

Until their cars are fixed, owners are advised to keep at least a half tank of fuel in their cars to be on the safe side.

Owners of the vehicles are asked to bring them in for service at a Ford dealership, where the software will be recalibrated free of charge.
