Back in September 2021, Ford issued a major recall that affected its popular Explorer SUV as well as luxury sub-brand Lincoln’s Aviator and Corsair SUVs. These models are once again affected, as the recall has been expanded to include model-year 2022 and 2023 versions of the SUVs.

The issue affects roughly 382,760 vehicles in total. The video output may fail in model-year 2020-23 Explorers and Aviators and model-year 2020-22 Corsairs equipped with 360-degree camera systems, preventing an image of the rear view from displaying on the infotainment screen. The loss of the image may reduce the driver’s visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will resolve the issue by updating the image processing module software for free. Ford will begin notifying owners Feb. 20, but those with further questions can call Ford at 866-436-7332 (Ford’s number for this recall is 23S02), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
