Ford has announced a recall of over 310,000 trucks in the United States due to a potential issue with the driver’s front airbag.
The recall pertains to specific F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 Super Duty trucks manufactured in 2016.
According to Ford, dust may accumulate in the cable located within the steering wheel, which could result in an interruption of the electrical connection and prevent the airbag from inflating during an accident.
Fortunately, there have been no reported accidents or injuries resulting from this issue.
Owners of affected vehicles will receive notification starting on July 5th and can have their steering wheel wiring assembly replaced by dealers at no charge.
Indicators of a problem may include clicking or popping sounds from the steering wheel, faulty steering wheel switches or horn, or an illuminated airbag warning light.
