2013 Ford Escapes Being Recalled for Engine Wiring Harness Splices

By -


If you have a 2013 Ford Escape, listen up. Yours might be one of the approximately 9,000 US-market models that are being recalled.

Their engine wiring harnesses may have insufficiently crimped splices, causing the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor to send the wrong signals to the powertrain control module.

A high amount of resistance in the circuits can lead to reduced engine power, hesitation, rough operation, or – most importantly and potentially lethal – sudden stalling. Your local Ford dealer will properly crimp the splices in the harness to decrease resistance and make sure the MAP sensor and PCM are communicating accurately.
