Almost 188,000 Mustangs have been recalled by Ford to address issues with brake fluid level measurements in the master cylinder, after reports of the low fluid warning light failing to illuminate.
History Behind The Brake Fluid Recall
The Body Control Module (BCM), which is responsible for monitoring vehicle functions, has a software issue. It fails to alert drivers when the brake fluid in the reservoir falls below the recommended level by the manufacturer. Normally, a warning light will illuminate the driver’s information display to warn them of low brake fluid levels.
The Dangers Of Low Brake Fluid Level Fault
Without sufficient brake fluid, your vehicle’s brakes will not function as they should. With the possible risk of a serious accident. If the brakes cannot be applied, or are less effective, the stopping distance will increase, and the likelihood of a crash will also increase. Ford therefore wants to address this issue quickly for affected Mustang owners.
Which Mustang Models Are Affected?
If you own a 2020-2023 Ford Mustang, then beginning December 4 you will be contacted by the automaker to have the issue fixed. The dealer will fix the Body Control Module free of charge for all affected Mustang owners by applying a software update. Ford says that the 2024 model year has undergone the software update already after the vehicle underwent a redesign.
How Mustang Owners Can Take Back Control
While recalls have been communicated to owners, many continue to be unhappy with the solutions provided by automakers. These problems have the potential to escalate into further legal action, underlining the importance of protecting consumer rights.
