Article by Andrew Christian, on June 25, 2014

Ford Motor Co. has expanded the recall of 2014 F-150 pickups from an initial 372 to 5,675 trucks to inspect and repair a possible defect with the electronic power assisted steering gear. According to Ford, the affected steering gears were fitted with a motor position sensor magnet that was improperly installed by a supplier.

Ford spokeswoman Elena Cortesi disclosed that the carmaker reported the matter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on June 10. The supplier then notified Ford of additional faulty steering gears.

The carmaker said an incorrectly installed gear motor position sensor magnet could affect steering and could result to loss of steering control. According to Ford, it has already delivered 260 of the 5,675 F-150s affected by the recall, while the remaining units are at dealerships or in transit to dealers.

Cortesi said that deliveries have been halted until the issue is resolved. She said that Ford has instructed dealers to stop deliveries or test drives of the affected units. Ford has already advised affected F-150 owners to bring their vehicles to dealers immediately for inspection and repair, if necessary.
