Ford Recalls Over 60,000 Mavericks Over ClusterFord

The Ford Motor Company issued a recall this week for select Maverick hybrid pickup trucks from the 2022 and 2023 model years due to electronic issues with the truck’s gauge cluster. The automaker states that as many as 62,813 Mavericks in the United States are set to be impacted by the recall notice.

According to the NHTSA filing from the automaker, these select Maverick hybrid models may contain an instrument cluster binnacle that does not illuminate key readouts like the speedometer or vehicle warning lights. This is not only an annoying and challenging situation for the impacted owners, it also goes against a series of NHTSA’s Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).

Ford says the issue is the result of some faulty software, specifically rapid CAN signals bouncing the truck between its Sleep and Awake modes. This error can cause the truck’s internal memory registers to be corrupted, ultimately preventing the cluster from illuminating as intended. The issue was initially discovered after 167 trucks came in for warranty claims related to the cluster, which were analyzed by the production team at the automaker’s Hermosillo plant in Mexico.
