Ford Recalls 2.9K F-150 Lightnings for Tire Pressure Issue
June 28, 2022—Ford Motor Co. on Monday issued a recall of nearly 2,900 F-150 Lightning EV pickups due to an issue with the models' tire pressure monitoring systems.
Affected vehicles may not have their TPMS lights illuminate when intended, which could prevent adequate warning of low tire pressure. According to a report from The Detroit News, certain 2022 Lightning models with 20" or 22" all-season tires are affected by the recall.
"The issue stems from the recommended tire cold inflation value in the truck's body control module being incorrectly set to 35 psi instead of 42 psi," the report says.
The recall affects 2,666 vehicles in the U.S. and another 220 in Canada. Ford has said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries resulting from the recall.
A software fix is expected to be available to customers within the next 30 days and will only take about 20 minutes to install.
