Latches/Locks/Linkages — Hatchback/Liftgate — Lock

Ford is recalling certain model year 2011 Edge and Lincoln mkx vehicles manufactured from July 1, 2010, through October 8, 2010. These vehicles were shipped with incorrectly configured electronic module settings that disable the locking function of the liftgate. Accordingly, the vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 206, "door locks and door retention components."
Ford will notify owners and dealers will have the affected control modules updated free of charge. The safety recall began on November 1, 2010. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.
