MANUFACTURER: Ford Motor Company
MFR'S REPORT DATE: February 21, 2011

Ford is recalling certain model year 2011 Ford F-150, F-250, F-350, F-450, F-550, Edge, and Lincoln MKX trucks manufactured from October 25,
2010, through November 20, 2010. These vehicles were inspected using Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS) that had a custom software routine to read
the suspect Body Control Module (BCM) serial number. Based on the serial number the BCM was either not affected or replaced. The custom software
routine was not reading the correct set of characters, and was not able to identify a BCM that required replacement affected BCMs may have the
potential for an internal short.
If an electrical short develops, an overheating condition may occur which could result in a vehicle fire.
Dealers will inspect the body control module and if necessary replace it free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about March 7, 2011.
