    Summary: Ford is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Ford F-150, 2012 Expedition and Lincoln Navigator, and 2012-2013 mustang vehicles, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard nos. 102, "transmission shift lever sequence, starter interlock, and transmission braking effect" and 108 ¿lamps, reflective devices and associated equipment.¿ these vehicles may have a transmission range sensor (trs) that was calibrated out of specification for reverse gear.
