Ford Motor Co is recalling over 327 000 trucks for safety reasons after noticing some of the trucks may have issues leading to overheating or fires.


On Wednesday, Ford issued a safety recall for roughly 327,000 trucks. The company believes there may be potential issues with the vehicles that can lead to overheating or fires.

The announcement affects Ford F-150 trucks from 2015 to 2019. It also affects Super Duty vehicles from 2017 to 2019 that were inspected and serviced after a previous recall in December that was spurred by potential fire concerns.


The recent safety notification was issued to address potential damage to the engine block heater cable splice connectors. The cables are used to keep trucks warmer in the winter to make ignition easier, however, Ford believes the connector may have “inadvertently become damaged” during service.

“Dealers will disable the vehicle’s engine block heater cable by cutting off the plug end prongs and sealing the end cap with silicone sealant. Customers will be notified when an engine block replacement cable is available,” the company wrote in a statement.

According to the car manufacturer, the issue has caused one fire in the U.S. and one in Canada. The affected F-150 were manufactured at the Kansas City assembly plant. The affected Super Duty trucks were produced at Ford’s Kentucky plant.
