2012 F-150 Recall: Faulty Front Passenger Seat Occupancy Sensor

The 2012 Ford F-150 is being recalled for a faulty front passenger seat's occupancy sensor. Only 101 units are affected.

The problem: A software glitch in the front passenger seat's occupancy sensor -- which controls how the front passenger airbag should deploy, if at all -- may not function according to original specifications. As a result, in a collision, the system could deploy the bag in an unintended manner, or not deploy the bag at all.
The fix: Ford will replace the sensor at no charge to the owner. Dealers will also remove and replace any affected sensors found in their existing sales inventory. Owners will be notified next week of the campaign, but can contact 1-866-436-7332 for more information.
