Nearly 1 Million Pick-Up Trucks Recalled Due To Fires
If you drive a pick-up truck, you may want to look into this latest recall. Hundreds of thousands of pick-ups are being recalled because of fires starting. There is another truck recall and this time it affects nine hundred thousand F-150 and Super Duty Ford trucks in the U.S. and Canada. According to WIVB, the Ford Motor Company needs to replace an engine block heater cable because it can cause a fire.
The heater cable attaches to the engine to warm it up so that the engine starts better in the colder weather. It is a cord that owners attach to an extension cord. It hangs from the vehicle. The extension cord is then plugged into the garage outlet. Ford says that contaminates can get into the connector and then erode over time and possibly cause a fire.
Ford does say that no major accidents or fires have been reported, just three minor ones. To see the specifics and the models of trucks affected, click HERE.
