Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety recall for 1,374 2013-2015 Ford Police Interceptor Sedans in Canada equipped with a police accessory auxiliary battery system that was installed by one Qualified Vehicle Modifier, after the vehicles were produced but before they were delivered to customers.
In some cases, the wiring that connects the auxiliary battery in the luggage compartment to the main battery in the engine compartment might have been misrouted or is improperly held in place, resulting in the possibility of an electrical short, increasing the risk of a fire.
Ford is aware of three vehicle fires that might be associated with this issue, with no injuries.
Affected vehicles include certain 2013-2015 Ford Police Interceptor Sedans built at Chicago Assembly Plant, Feb. 6, 2012 through Oct. 16, 2015 with an auxiliary battery system installed by one Qualified Vehicle Modifier. All 1,374 vehicles are located in Canada.
Dealers will inspect the auxiliary battery wiring, and modify or replace it as necessary – at no cost to the customer.
