Safety recall for select 2011-13 Ford F-150 vehicles with 6-speed automatic transmission shift issues

Ford is issuing a safety recall on select 2011-13 Ford F-150 vehicles with 6-speed automatic transmission that may experience an intermittent loss of the transmission output speed sensor signal to the powertrain control module, potentially resulting in a temporary, unintended downshift into first gear. Depending on vehicle speed, a downshift to first gear without warning could result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford is aware of five reports of accidents, including one report of “whiplash” potentially related to this condition.

This action affects approximately 1.48 million vehicles in North America, including approximately 1.26 million in the United States and federalized territories and approximately 221,000 in Canada.

Affected 2011-13 F-150 vehicles were built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, April 28, 2010 to Oct. 28, 2013, and Kansas City Assembly Plant, May 18, 2010 to Nov. 18, 2013.

Dealers will update the powertrain control module software in the affected vehicles. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S07.

There's only one trans in 2011-2013 F150's, that's the 6R80.

FWIW .....

The previous recall (16S19) provided for ...

... extending the warranty coverage on the transmission molded leadframe, which contains the OSS, under Customer Satisfaction Program 16N02. This increases the transmission molded leadframe warranty coverage to a total of 10 years or 150,000 miles from the warranty start date, whichever occurs first.

lf your vehicle's transmisslon molded leadframe requires replacement due to an OSS failure and your vehicle is within the indicated time/mileage limitations, Ford Motor Company has authorized your dealer to replace the transmission molded leadframe free of charge (parts and labor).

Got my notice the other day, but it says that I have to wait for the software to be completely developed. I think that's because it's the Ecoboost.. Said they would send another letter when the software is ready sometime on the 2nd quarter, 2019...

Guess I'm on hold..

Took mine in today, back out in a couple of hours.

Funny thing though, I have a 2013 F150 with that DOHC motor, just coming up on 99000 miles. Most trouble free and reliable vehicle I have ever had.

I told the service writer that if he breaks my truck I break him.
