Ford is recalling more than 450,000 F-150 pickup trucks from 2021 and 2022 model years because their windshield wipers may stop working.
According to the recall, if the windshield wipers stop working during rain or snow and drivers can’t see where they are going, it could lead to a crash. The motor for the front windshield wipers may fail because voltage spikes may damage the circuit board for the wipers, causing erratic wiper action or the wipers to stop working.
Ford told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that, as of October 13, 2022, it is aware of 1,378 warranty reports globally, but no related crashes or injuries.
Dealerships will replace the front windshield wiper motor free of charge.
NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed.
If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and a recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly to see whether your vehicle has had a recall issued.
