Ford Motor Co. recalled more than 456,000 light SUVs and trucks for a battery issue that can cause essential functions such as hazard lights to stop working and lead to a loss of power while driving, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced (NHTSA).

In some instances, the vehicle might stall as it slows down to stop, or it may fail to restart after automatically shutting off.

Notification letters are expected to be mailed to owners starting May 13.

Additional recall for Bronco Sport owners

Last week, nearly 43,000 Ford Broncos and Escapes were recalled because of a potential fuel leak that could cause fuel or vapor to build up under the cars’ hoods, increasing the risk of fire.

The recall affected certain Ford Bronco Sport models from 2022 and 2023, as well as the 2022 Ford Escape. All have 1.5-liter engines.
