Ford Recalls 150,000 F-150 Pickup Trucks

airbag

Ford Motor Co. is recalling almost 150,000 F-150 pickups in the United States and Canada due to an airbag malfunction. There have been over 200 incidents reported so far.

The defective airbags can deploy when they're not needed and have caused more than 70 injuries. The trucks included in the recall were produced between November 2004 and June 2005 at a plant in Norfolk, Va. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration originally requested a recall of 1.3 million trucks, but Ford said this was unnecessary because far more unwanted airbag deployments happened in trucks from the Virginia plant than from those produced at other factories.

The problem was caused by an incorrectly placed wire in the steering wheel. A warning light indicating the airbag needs servicing normally lights up multiple times before deployment takes place.
