Glitch leaves Ford engines running after key removed
Ford is recalling 433,000 vehicles, including the 2015 Focus, C-MAX and Escape models, because of a software problem.
Ford says the flaw in the body control module means the engine may keep running after the key is turned to “off” and removed, or after the start/stop button is pressed to turn the engine off. No injuries or accidents have been associated with the problem. Dealers will update the software at no cost to consumers. The recall affects 375,000 cars in the United States, 52,000 in Canada and 5000 in Mexico.
New Zealand is not affected by the recall.
