Summary On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, and minivans equipped with seat belts supplied by TRW, it is possible that the driver's and/or outboard front passenger's seat belt buckle may not fully latch In the event of a crash, the restraint system may not provide adequate occupant protection, increasing the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. The vehicles equipped with these belts include Ford Crown Victorias built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Mercury Grand Marquis built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Lincoln Town Cars built at Wixom Assembly Plant from 3/27/00 - 5/30/01; Lincoln Navigators built at Michigan Truck Plant from 4/11/00 - 5/31/01; Ford Windstars built at Oakville Assembly Plant from 3/23/00 - 5/30/01; Ford Rangers built at Twin Cities Plant from 3/28/00 - 5/30/01 and also at the Edison Plant from 3/13/00 - 5/25/01; Ford F-150 trucks built at the Norfolk Plant from 4/18/00 - 5/25/00, at the Onta...
Summary On certain passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, and light and medium duty pickup trucks, a switch located in the plastic cover of the wiper motor gear case could malfunction and overheat, potentially resulting in loss of intermittent wiper function, loss of wiper park function, complete loss of wiper function, smoke, or ignition of the plastic cover material. Switch malfunction is most likely to occur when the intermittent setting of the wipers is being used, or when snow or ice obstructs the blades from returning to the "parked" position at the bottom of the windshield. These vehicles were built at the following assembly plants: Atlanta plant from 2/11/00 through 7/31/00; Chicago plant from 2/14/00 through 8/4/00; Kansas City plant from 2/26/00 to 9/4/00; Kentucky truck plant from 2/18/00 to 8/31/00; Michigan truck plant from 2/23/00 through 8/3/00; Norfolk plant from 2/21/00 through 7/27/00; Wayne Stamping and Assembly plant from 2/25/00 through 8/15/00; and Wixom plant from 2/...
Summary On these medium duty trucks equipped with commercial truck tires that have steel cords in the tire sidewall, the valve stems may have been torn or damaged during assembly. They may leak air, causing sidewall damage and, if not maintained, result in a sidewall failure. A failure during inflation of a damaged tire could result in injury to someone near the tire.

Summary On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, and minivans equipped with seat belts supplied by TRW, it is possible that the driver's and/or outboard front passenger's seat belt buckle may not fully latch In the event of a crash, the restraint system may not provide adequate occupant protection, increasing the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. The vehicles equipped with these belts include Ford Crown Victorias built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Mercury Grand Marquis built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Lincoln Town Cars built at Wixom Assembly Plant from 3/27/00 - 5/30/01; Lincoln Navigators built at Michigan Truck Plant from 4/11/00 - 5/31/01; Ford Windstars built at Oakville Assembly Plant from 3/23/00 - 5/30/01; Ford Rangers built at Twin Cities Plant from 3/28/00 - 5/30/01 and also at the Edison Plant from 3/13/00 - 5/25/01; Ford F-150 trucks built at the Norfolk Plant from 4/18/00 - 5/25/00, at the Onta...
Summary On certain passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, and light and medium duty pickup trucks, a switch located in the plastic cover of the wiper motor gear case could malfunction and overheat, potentially resulting in loss of intermittent wiper function, loss of wiper park function, complete loss of wiper function, smoke, or ignition of the plastic cover material. Switch malfunction is most likely to occur when the intermittent setting of the wipers is being used, or when snow or ice obstructs the blades from returning to the "parked" position at the bottom of the windshield. These vehicles were built at the following assembly plants: Atlanta plant from 2/11/00 through 7/31/00; Chicago plant from 2/14/00 through 8/4/00; Kansas City plant from 2/26/00 to 9/4/00; Kentucky truck plant from 2/18/00 to 8/31/00; Michigan truck plant from 2/23/00 through 8/3/00; Norfolk plant from 2/21/00 through 7/27/00; Wayne Stamping and Assembly plant from 2/25/00 through 8/15/00; and Wixom plant from 2/...
Summary On these medium duty trucks equipped with commercial truck tires that have steel cords in the tire sidewall, the valve stems may have been torn or damaged during assembly. They may leak air, causing sidewall damage and, if not maintained, result in a sidewall failure. A failure during inflation of a damaged tire could result in injury to someone near the tire.

Summary On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, and minivans equipped with seat belts supplied by TRW, it is possible that the driver's and/or outboard front passenger's seat belt buckle may not fully latch In the event of a crash, the restraint system may not provide adequate occupant protection, increasing the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. The vehicles equipped with these belts include Ford Crown Victorias built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Mercury Grand Marquis built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Lincoln Town Cars built at Wixom Assembly Plant from 3/27/00 - 5/30/01; Lincoln Navigators built at Michigan Truck Plant from 4/11/00 - 5/31/01; Ford Windstars built at Oakville Assembly Plant from 3/23/00 - 5/30/01; Ford Rangers built at Twin Cities Plant from 3/28/00 - 5/30/01 and also at the Edison Plant from 3/13/00 - 5/25/01; Ford F-150 trucks built at the Norfolk Plant from 4/18/00 - 5/25/00, at the Onta...
Summary On certain passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, and light and medium duty pickup trucks, a switch located in the plastic cover of the wiper motor gear case could malfunction and overheat, potentially resulting in loss of intermittent wiper function, loss of wiper park function, complete loss of wiper function, smoke, or ignition of the plastic cover material. Switch malfunction is most likely to occur when the intermittent setting of the wipers is being used, or when snow or ice obstructs the blades from returning to the "parked" position at the bottom of the windshield. These vehicles were built at the following assembly plants: Atlanta plant from 2/11/00 through 7/31/00; Chicago plant from 2/14/00 through 8/4/00; Kansas City plant from 2/26/00 to 9/4/00; Kentucky truck plant from 2/18/00 to 8/31/00; Michigan truck plant from 2/23/00 through 8/3/00; Norfolk plant from 2/21/00 through 7/27/00; Wayne Stamping and Assembly plant from 2/25/00 through 8/15/00; and Wixom plant from 2/...
Summary On these medium duty trucks equipped with commercial truck tires that have steel cords in the tire sidewall, the valve stems may have been torn or damaged during assembly. They may leak air, causing sidewall damage and, if not maintained, result in a sidewall failure. A failure during inflation of a damaged tire could result in injury to someone near the tire.

Summary On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, and minivans equipped with seat belts supplied by TRW, it is possible that the driver's and/or outboard front passenger's seat belt buckle may not fully latch In the event of a crash, the restraint system may not provide adequate occupant protection, increasing the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. The vehicles equipped with these belts include Ford Crown Victorias built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Mercury Grand Marquis built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Lincoln Town Cars built at Wixom Assembly Plant from 3/27/00 - 5/30/01; Lincoln Navigators built at Michigan Truck Plant from 4/11/00 - 5/31/01; Ford Windstars built at Oakville Assembly Plant from 3/23/00 - 5/30/01; Ford Rangers built at Twin Cities Plant from 3/28/00 - 5/30/01 and also at the Edison Plant from 3/13/00 - 5/25/01; Ford F-150 trucks built at the Norfolk Plant from 4/18/00 - 5/25/00, at the Onta...
Summary On certain passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, and light and medium duty pickup trucks, a switch located in the plastic cover of the wiper motor gear case could malfunction and overheat, potentially resulting in loss of intermittent wiper function, loss of wiper park function, complete loss of wiper function, smoke, or ignition of the plastic cover material. Switch malfunction is most likely to occur when the intermittent setting of the wipers is being used, or when snow or ice obstructs the blades from returning to the "parked" position at the bottom of the windshield. These vehicles were built at the following assembly plants: Atlanta plant from 2/11/00 through 7/31/00; Chicago plant from 2/14/00 through 8/4/00; Kansas City plant from 2/26/00 to 9/4/00; Kentucky truck plant from 2/18/00 to 8/31/00; Michigan truck plant from 2/23/00 through 8/3/00; Norfolk plant from 2/21/00 through 7/27/00; Wayne Stamping and Assembly plant from 2/25/00 through 8/15/00; and Wixom plant from 2/...
Summary On these medium duty trucks equipped with commercial truck tires that have steel cords in the tire sidewall, the valve stems may have been torn or damaged during assembly. They may leak air, causing sidewall damage and, if not maintained, result in a sidewall failure. A failure during inflation of a damaged tire could result in injury to someone near the tire.
