001-2013-ford-focus-st.jpg

by Chris Bruce, Dec 28th 2015

Includes The Focus ST, Escape, Explorer, Taurus, And More

Ford is recalling a total of 9,885 vehicles in two campaigns.

The Basics: In one recall, Ford will recall 9,017 examples of the 2013 Escape with build dates from January 11, 2012, to April 1, 2013, and the 2013-2014 Focus ST produced between May 3, 2012, and October 14, 2013.

The Problem: Splices in the engine wiring harness might not have enough compression, and this can cause the manifold absolute pressure sensor to send incorrect signals to the powertrain control module. This issue could cause the engine to stall.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the current crimped splices with new splices, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If You Own One: The repair campaign will begin on January 4, 2016.

More Information: Ford recalled the 2013 Escape and Focus ST in August 2014 for the same problem, and this is an expansion of that campaign, according to company spokesperson John Cangany to Autoblog.

The Basics: In the smaller of the two campaigns, Ford will recall 868 examples of the 2013 Explorer, Explorer Police Utility, Taurus, Taurus Police Interceptor, Flex, Lincoln MKS, and MKT.

The Problem: The fuel delivery module can crack, which would cause a fuel leak.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module.

If You Own One: Owners should receive notice soon because NHTSA's report says the recall begins in December.

More Information: According to Cangany, this recall is an expansion of a campaign from 2013 for these vehicles.

I'm still confused as to why the 14's aren't getting put into these recalls; My late build 14 does the same crap all of the older builds do.

When will they just say "Hey we ****ed up" and give us new wiring harnesses? This is getting ridiculous. When does this cross into dangerous territory where they HAVE to replace the whole thing? Do they wait until someone is killed by a stalled engine? I have been lucky to only have mild issues compared to some of the people here who claim their car cut out in an intersection and whatnot.

I already sent in my case to sue Ford for my car being back to the dealer 6 times. Not going to do this recall until they respond to my letter from my lawyer. How can a new car like this have so many ****ing recalls and tsbs

When I started working for Honda I thought the same thing. My room mate is now a tech for them and does recall work pretty much all day.
Funny you say that. My 2012 SI was a POS with all kinds of issues. When i bought my ST the Honda guy's where all talking sh!t and all they could say was the Honduh was more reliable LOL

I always get a little excited when I see the recall posts because I think they might have actually solved the problem. Unfortunately I quickly realize they must not have because I have a 2015 that has the same engine shudder on the factory tune. I can't help but think somebody is just trying to save a job somewhere and is treating symptoms instead of the problem.

My ST3 is finally covered. I've had a lot of problems with shuddering and it stalled once last summer. My car has actually been running somewhat decent so we'll see which way this goes.
