2020—2023 Ford Mustang® Safety Recall
Recall Reference Number: 23C35
Ford Motor Company has determined that there is a safety compliance defect with certain model-year 2020–2023 Mustang® vehicles and has issued a recall. We are committed to correcting this condition. The well-being and safety of your loved ones is something that we take very seriously. We are committed to correcting this issue.
The Body Control Module (BCM) has an incorrect configuration. The incorrect configuration parameter prevents performance of the brake fluid sensor diagnostics. Therefore, the “low brake fluid” warning light may not come on when the brake fluid falls below the recommended level. We are currently notifying owners and lessees who may be affected. You can check to see if your vehicle is affected by entering your VIN here.
Owners will be notified by mail and instructed to take their vehicle to a Ford Dealer or Lincoln Retailer to have the BCM reconfigured to properly illuminate the brake fluid warning indicator when the master cylinder reservoir is low. There will be no charge for this service. When parts are available, you can book an appointment online or in your FordPass® App, or contact your local Ford Dealer.
Keeping drivers and passengers safe is a top priority. For questions or concerns about the Mustang® vehicle safety compliance recall 23C35, please call us at 1-866-436-7332. A Ford Recall representative will be happy to assist you.
As always, thank you for being a Ford Owner.
