They include 1.5 million of its popular F-150 pickup trucks with a transmission flaw that could cause the vehicles to downshift to first gear with no warning.
Dealers will update the powertrain control module software in the affected vehicles.
According to Ford, certain vehicles may have an "intermittently functioning door latch motor due to the buildup of silicon contamination", resulting in the latch not being able to fully engage. So far, Ford says it has not heard of any accidents or injuries from this defect.
The company said it is now unaware of any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from the condition.
A second recall issued by ford covers 27,000 2017-2019 Lincoln Continental sedans. This recall's reference number is 19S03.
Also impacted- by separate issues-were select Lincoln Continentals made between 2017 and 2019, and certain 2019 Ford Mustangs, Lincoln Nautiluses, and Lincoln Navigators. Dealers will remove and replace the door latches. The recall was related to a safety compliance issue in which the vehicles' instrument panel cluster assemblies are blank upon starting the vehicles.
This action affects approximately 4,200 vehicles in the United States and 150 in Canada. Ford spokeswoman Monique Brentley said the root cause was different than in the new recall.
The glitch will be addressed via a software update that presumably prevents the transmission from shifting into first gear if the electrical fault occurs.
