After issuing a recall for its Escape SUVs and Super Duty pickup trucks earlier in the week, Ford is back to recall some 870,700 examples of its bestselling F-150 pickup truck over an issue with the electric parking brake.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2021-23 F-150s equipped with a single exhaust system. These vehicles may experience an unexpected activation of the electric parking brake while driving if the brake’s wiring is damaged. The issue may be caused by contact between the rear axle wiring harness bundle and rear axle housing, which could cause the tape and circuit insulation of the wiring harness assembly to wear and expose the wiring. Sudden activation of the electric parking brake could result in a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.

To resolve the issue, dealers will install a protective tie strap and tape wrap and replace the harness, as necessary, for free. Ford will begin notifying owners Sept. 11, but those with further questions can call Ford at 866-436-7332 (Ford’s number for this recall is 23S35), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
