ALL BRONCO RECALLS

2021 Ford Bronco - Built 9/23/2020 - 12/22/2021, 2022 Ford Bronco - Built 8/31/2021 - 11/18/2022, & 2023 Ford Bronco - Built 6/8/2022 - 3/17/2023: OVERHEATING WIPER MOTORS ON FRONT WINDSHIELD

Recall # NA  /  Ford Recall#: 23B35                                                        Recall Date: Unknown

PROBLEM:

The wiper system has what is called a "Dry Detection" mode, and the system may enter into it. What this is, is the wipers are restricted by the motor to intermittent speed while it is set in a low or high speed setting (continuous setting). One way a customer can fix this is to toggle the switch to another setting, and go back to previous setting.

SOLUTION:

Ford will provide dealers with what is called a Flash Box, and the Service Department will use it to update the wiper motor software. This is under the Ford Warranty so no money out of your pocket.
