Ford Bronco Sport, Maverick Trucks Recalled Due To Battery Risks That May Lead to a Crash

The recalled trucks could lose power unexpectedly due to an inability to detect a dropping battery charge, potentially increasing the risk of an accident

Ford has issued a recall affecting about 456,000 Bronco Sport and Maverick vehicles due to a battery malfunction that increases the chance of an auto accident.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced the Ford Bronco Sport, Maverick Truck recall on April 12, after the manufacturer determined that the vehicles may fail to detect a low battery charge.

According to the recall notice, Ford discovered that the modules responsible for controlling the body and power train might not be able to recognize alterations in the state of charge of the 12-volt battery. The manufacturer warns this can result in loss of electrical power or loss of drive power, increasing the chance of a crash that can result in serious injuries.

To date, there have been no injuries of deaths reported due to the recall.
