Ford recalls 2014-2015 Fusions in North America

Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 65,000 Fusion vehicles in North America for a programming issue in the instrument cluster. This issue allows the key to be removed 30 minutes after the ignition is turned off, even if the transmission is not
in Park. This is a compliance issue with FMVSS 114, a regulation involving theft protection and rollaway prevention.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Affected vehicles include certain 2014-2015 Fusion vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant, September 4, 2013 to October 31, 2014; certain 2014-2015 Fusion vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, July 27, 2013 to October 31, 2014; certain 2015 Fusion Energi vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, July 14, 2014 to October 31, 2014; and certain 2015 Fusion Hybrid vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, February 24, 2014 to October 31, 2014.

Ford is aware of 56,479 vehicles in the United States and federalized territories, 6,048 in Canada and 2,342 in Mexico. (These totals are as of November 11, 2014.)

Dealers will reprogram the instrument cluster at no cost to the customer.
