FoMoCo sent out a directive to Ford and Lincoln/Mercury dealers today informing them that around 225,000 vehicles are being re-recalled after it was discovered that the wiring harness used during the original recall wasn't quite up to snuff. The second round of recalls involves a faulty fuse that doesn't offer enough protection if a short circuit occurs. Ford will be notifying the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the issue, but until NHTSA has all the information and dealers have the appropriate parts, Ford won't be notifying owners until the middle of next month.

The full list of vehicles* includes...
  • 1992-2003 Econoline
  • 1992-98 Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis
  • 1993 Bronco
  • 1995-97 F-series stripped chassis
  • 1993-95 Taurus SHO
  • 1992-95 Town Car
  • 1993 F series
*Only gasoline-powered models are affected.
