Ford Recall #
NHTSA Campaign #
Certain passenger vehicles built for one specific fleet customer were modified for optional hands-free cellular phone operating capability. To provide this functionality, a special overlay wire harness was installed that inadvertently did not include the circuits for passenger air bag deactivation indicator (padi) lamp function. As a result, these vehicles do not comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 208, 'occupant crash protection.'
The fleet customer was notified and all vehicles have been repaired. The recall began on April 28, 2006.
