Airbag Recall Ford F-150
Orlando personal injury attorney James O. Cunningham is monitoring reports of a new recall involving Ford’s popular F-150 pickup trucks. Ford Motor Company recently announced that they were recalling 150,000 F-150s due to problems with airbags deploying unexpectedly without having been triggered by any impact. Ford has traced the problem to an airbag control wire located within the steering wheel assembly that may have been installed incorrectly. Unless the wire is in the proper location, it can move around during normal driving, and this movement can potentially erode the protective coating from the wire. When the exposed wire comes into contact with the metal, it creates a path to ground, resulting in the airbag light coming on and the potential for airbag deployment with no warning.
