Ford issued recall warnings to alert consumers about several safety issues, including an engine flaw that can lead to a fire.
The company warned about the 2019-2020 Transit Connect van. It has possible engine flaws that can increase the risk of fire.
The 2020 Ford Escape is being recalled because of tire pressure monitoring issues that can lead to control loss of the vehicle.
The high-performance Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT500 were also named in the recall because of noted light system issues.
Ford is unaware of any accidents or injuries that are associated with the recalls.
Due to a failing monitoring system in the Ford Escape, drivers might not be warned about low air pressure levels in the rear tires.

The solution is the replacement of the body control module.
The recall impacts about 700 vehicles.
Daytime lights on the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT500 may not activate, reducing the other driver’s visibility and potentially increasing the risk of a car crash.
