Ford Motor Company has issued a series of recalls for several late-model Ford and Lincoln vehicles. According to Detroit News, the recalls affect nearly 165,000 Ford owners across North America, with most of the vehicles registered in the U.S.

Some of these vehicles may contain wiring harnesses that were improperly manufactured by one of Ford's suppliers. These can result in poor electrical connections and send inaccurate signals to the vehicles' powertrain control module, which helps manage the engine. That may cause a warning light to illuminate on the dashboard, or in severe cases, it can reduce engine output and even cause stalling, boosting the risk of an accident. However, Ford says that it knows of no collisions or injuries associated with the problem.

The recall is limited to 2.0-liter Escape vehicles built between October 5, 2011 and April 1, 2013 at Ford's Louisville Assembly Plant and 2.0-liter Focus ST vehicles manufactured between February 14, 2012 and October 14, 2013 at the automaker's Michigan Assembly Plant. Ford says that dealers will inspect and replace the faulty part.
