Ford Australia has recently issued a recall for the Falcon sedan, discount Falcon Ute and Territory cars because of a problem with the ignition switch connector.

The Australian division of Ford has recently announced a recall for several models because of an issue with the ignition switch connector. According to the company, the vehicles affected by this recall are the Falcon sedan, Falcon Ute and Territory and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem solved. Ford says that the affected car have a potential issue with the ignition switch connector which may cause the vehicle to stall during driving, increasing the risk of a crash and injury.

The carmaker is adding that if the engine will stall, the vehicle will be unable to restart it and it will pose as a potential accident hazard to other road users too. The affected cars are a number of FG II Falcon and SZ Territory, which have been produced between the 12th of November, 2013, and the 12th of October, 2014, just before the production of the FG X Falcon and the SZ II Territory has begun. Owners of these models should be aware of the issue but Ford is recommending that the steering column Tilt or Reach should not be adjusted until the fix is completed. The recall should begin soon and owners should contact their local Ford representative for any extra questions on the topic. The fix will be made free of charge.
