Ford announced F-650 recall

Ford Motor Company says it will recall certain model year 2016 F-650 trucks manufactured July 29 to Sept. 3 over concern the vehicles may have been built with an incorrect Park-Reverse-Neutral-Drive-Manual (PRNDM) steering column, instead of Reverse-Neutral-Drive-Manual (RNDM) steering column.

If the vehicle has the incorrect steering column, is parked on a hill, and the PRNDM placed in “P”, park pawl may fracture due to being overloaded, Ford says.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the PRNDM steering column with the correct RNDM steering column free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Jan. 11. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 15S35.
