Ford Motor Company is recalling 21,435 model year 2015 Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured February 17, 2014, to March 19, 2015, and equipped with daytime running lights (DRL).
The parking lights do not reduce their light output from a DRL level when used in conjunction with the headlights and may exceed the permissible amount allowed by federal regulations. Excessive light output could temporarily blind oncoming traffic, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford has notified owners, and dealers will update the lighting control software, free of charge. The recall began on May 8, 2015.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for the recall is 15C02.
