Ford Recall 02S40: Ford/Brake And Accelerator Pedal Distance
2001 Ford Taurus
This could result in a customer experiencing an "unintended vehicle speed increase" or a perceived "unable to stop" condition.
Service Brakes, Hydraulic — Pedals And Linkages
- Certain passenger vehicles equipped with adjustable padels are being recalled in order to adjust the brake and accelerator pedals to a minimum of 50 mm of lateral separation. Simultaneous application of both the brake and accelerator pedals could result in an increase in engine RPM.
- Owners will be instructed as to the proper way to set the position of the pedals and to take their vehicles to a dealer to have the spacing between the brake and accelerator pedals measured. If the spacing is found to be less than 50 mm, the dealer will adjust the pedals to increase the distance between them to greater than 50 mm. Owner notification began October 28, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.
