2022 Ford Maverick Pickup Models Have Random Brake Lighting

DEARBORN, Mich. -- The Ford Motor Company has agreed to recall some 2022 Model Year

Maverick compact pickup trucks for a brake light that can light up when a driver does not put on the brake.

The latest Ford 2022 Maverick recall centers on a problem with brake lights which creates the appearance the driver is applying the brakes,

when they are actually not, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the case of F-150 pickup trucks, Ford Motor Company announced it is recalling 184,698 F-150 trucks from 2021 and 2022 model years.

In July 2020, photos were leaked of the rear end from the manufacturing facility,

simultaneously confirming the compact pickup would be given the Ford Maverick name, once used on compact cars during the 1970s.

When the 2022 Ford Mavericks ECM (Electronic Control Module), which is the cars onboard computer,

detects an issue with the ECM that cannot be fixed, the computer turns on the Check Engine Light.

If your check engine light comes on because of a major concern,

you are at risk of damaging your Ford Maverick even more if you do not fix the issue immediately.
