    After the Ford Motor company has received complaints of twenty-five fires, on the colling and heating apparatus being prone to fire. The company has recalled almost 200,000 Lincoln Navigators and Ford Expeditions. Model years in the recall are 2015 to 2017.

    The recall includes 163,253 Ford Expeditions and 35,229 Lincoln Navigators.

    According to the HTSA documents, about two dozen reports of fire complaints were received and investigated. All of the reports happened while the vehicle was running. No accidents were reported related to the issue.

    “In June 2022, based on component analysis, Ford Engineering theorized that a mispositioned blower motor brush holder spring could cause an internal short or localized heating of the brush spring or holder.

    It is believed that when a fire initiates on the blower motor, it does so at the positive brush holder location.

    The [variable blower controller] would remain operational and there would be no signs of an overheated relay. Field data indicates that this concern typically occurs at a higher time in service, and on vehicles with higher mileage.”

    Letters notifying owners are expected to be mailed today, Sept. 12. Dealers will replace the front blower motor assembly, free of charge.
