2016 Ford F-150 Recalled for Problem With Multi-Contour Seats

DEARBORN, Michigan Ford is recalling 3,683 2016 Ford F-150 pickup trucks in North America to fix a problem with the multi-contour seats, the automaker said on Wednesday.

"If the multi-contour front passenger seat massage function is turned on and an adult is in that seat, the occupant classification system may incorrectly classify the adult as a child — suppressing the front passenger airbag and increasing the risk of injury in a crash," Ford said in a statement.

There are no accidents or injuries linked to the recall.

The affected F-150s were built at the Dearborn Truck plant from April 27, 2015 through November 22, 2015.

Ford dealers will update the occupant classification system module software. The recall is expected to begin the week of March 7. Owners can contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673.

No information about the recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.

Edmunds says: This recall begins soon, so owners should be ready to make a service appointment at a Ford dealership in early March.
