Ford has recalled over 242,600 Maverick trucks from 2022-2024 model years. 

Ford Motor Co. is recalling an estimated 242,669 Maverick trucks from the 2022 to 2024 model years due to issues with the Body Control Module (BCM) that may lead to their taillights not lighting up. The recalled BCM was introduced into production on Feb. 3, 2021, and was taken out of production on March 21, 2024.

Reason for the Recall

The Body Control Module (BCM) could falsely detect a current overload on one or both of the rear position lamp circuits, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported. This could result in one or both of the taillights deactivating during a drive cycle. This issue doesn’t affect headlamps, stop lamps, or turn signal functions.

If the rear position lamps fail to illuminate, it can cause reduced visibility to other drivers in dark environments, increasing the risk of a collision. The rear lamps utilize two position bulbs on a single circuit, and the BCM current threshold was calibrated to the current draw for one bulb, according to NHTSA.

As of April 4, 2024, Ford was aware of 11 warranty claims potentially related to this issue. CV data shows that 4,727 VINs have set diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) that may be related to this issue, with 1,555 vehicles setting both left hand and right hand DTCs on the same trip. Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries attributed to this condition.

Owners will be notified by mail and instructed to take their Maverick truck to a Ford or Lincoln dealer to have the BCM calibration updated to the latest level. There will be no charge for this service.
