Ford recalls 49,000 Mustang Mach-E EVs due to overheating battery

Ford announced recalling nearly 49,000 (48,924) of its Mustang Mach-E EVs due to overheating battery and has instructed dealers to put a hold on delivery as well.

Ford’s global head of product communications, Said Deep, told Jalopnik that it had not asked dealers to stop selling the cars, only to hold on to it for a while until the issue was fixed completely.

The car company revealed that the issue could cause the car not to start or cause it to lose propulsion while on the road. However, the good thing is that Ford claims to be able to fix the problem with a software update.

“The remedy for this program is a Secondary On-Board Diagnostic Control Module (SOBDMC) and Battery Energy Control Module (BECM) software update,” it announced.

Owners of the affected Mustang Mach-E cars can wait for the software update or drive down to a Ford or Lincoln dealer and get the update installed there. Ford hinted that the software update would be released in July 2022.

The company says it traced the affected cars to its factory in Cuautitlán, Mexico, and the cars were built there between May 27, 2020, and May 24, 2022.

Ford also wants the public to know that this was a voluntary action it is taking to avoid possible problems in the future, ‘there’s no open National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation into the problem,’ it says.
