This recall was just announced. So it was not done before any of your cars left the factory.

 

This recall affects 05 - 08 Mustangs

 

Mustangs that are vurrently in stock may be affected and dealers are required to fix the problem before selling the vehicle.

 

Vehicles affested from 05 - 08 that have been sold, owners will get a letter from Ford.

 

Certain 2005 through 2008 model year Mustang vehicles built at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant from April 22, 2005 through January 31, 2008.

 

REASON FOR THIS COMPLIANCE RECALL

The affected vehicles do not comply with one of the neck injury requirements specified in Federal

Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208 - Occupant Crash Protection for an unbelted 5th

percentile female sitting in the passenger seat while it is in the full forward position.

 

SERVICE ACTION

Dealers are to reprogram the Restraint Control Module using IDS (Integrated Diagnostic System) that

is updated with release (R53.7) P16 or later. This service must be performed on affected vehicles at

no charge to the vehicle owner. Do not demonstrate or deliver affected vehicles that remain in your

new vehicle inventory until this compliance recall has been completed.

 

NOTE: Owners are encouraged to have this recall performed as soon as possible. Until this recall is

performed, the vehicle owner can eliminate any real world risk associated with this

noncompliance by making certain the front seat passenger wears the safety belt and positions

the seat rearward, away from the airbag.

 

SOLD VEHICLES

• Owners of affected vehicles will be directed to dealers for repairs.

I notice that the seatbelt does come too far up on the neck of a small female. Also the passenger airbag off light will come on with light people. My last girlfried weighed about 99-100 pounds and the light would sometimes come on with her sitting in the passenger seat.

Shelby dude,

 

WTF does this mean------->No. 208 - Occupant Crash Protection for an unbelted 5th

percentile female sitting in the passenger seat while it is in the full forward position.

 

 

 

?????

 

 

Small women that were to sit in the front seat with the seat moved forward would be affected. As long as the seat is back it shouldn't affect them.

 

It is a safety issue that they are recalling certain mustangs affected that need to have some module reprogrammed

 

It is FOR REPROGRAMMING THE RESTRAINT CONTROL MODULE (RCM)

Subject: Ford Motor Company (Ford) recall No. 08C02 - Certain 2005-2008 Model Year Ford Mustangs

 

Summary

 

• Ford Action - Ford is conducting a voluntary compliance-related recall involving 2005-2008 model

year Mustangs to update the software in the restraint control module (RCM) to address a potential

non-compliance with one specific FMVSS 208 requirement that relates to an unbelted 5th percentile

female anthropomorphic test device, with the front passenger seat positioned full forward. The

action that Ford is undertaking does not affect the vehicle's five star frontal crash ratings achieved as

part of NHTSA's new car assessment program.

 

• Number of Vehicles Involved - Approximately 434,593 vehicles in the United States and federalized

territories.

 

• Description of Non-Compliance - A 2007 Ford Mustang V-6 coupe was tested by NHTSA's Office of

Vehicle Safety Compliance to the requirements of S16.1(B) of FMVSS 208. One requirement of

S15.3.6(a)(5) was exceeded for the unbelted, front passenger 5th percentile female anthropomorphic

test device seated in the full forward position.

 

• Service Program - Ford will notify dealers to stop demonstrating or delivering the affected vehicles

until they are updated with new software for the restraint control module. Ford will notify owners and

instruct them to take their vehicles to a Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealer for the software update. Ford

will also instruct owners to have all occupants wear their safety belts and move the passenger seat

rearward away from the passenger airbag thus eliminating any real world safety risk associated with

this noncompliance.

 

Attached is the detailed information required by the applicable portions of 49 CFR Part 573 - Defect

and Non-Compliance Information Report.

to one of the requirements of S15.3.6(a)(5) of FMVSS 208 for 2005-2008 model year

Ford Mustangs when a test is conducted pursuant to the requirements of S16.1(B) of FMVSS 208.

Plant are potentially affected. This includes part of the 2005 model year, all of the 2006 and 2007

model years, and part of the 2008 model year.

 

Because these vehicles are not produced in VIN order, information as to the applicability of this

action to specific vehicles can best be obtained by either calling Ford's toll-free line

(1-866-436-7332) or by contacting a local Ford dealer who can obtain specific information

regarding the vehicles from the Ford On-line Automotive Service Information System (OASIS)

database.

A 2007 Ford Mustang V-6 coupe was tested by NHTSA's Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance to the

requirements of S16.1(B) of FMVSS 208. One requirement of S15.3.6(a)(5) was exceeded for the

unbelted, front passenger 5th percentile female anthropomorphic test device seated in the full forward

position.

 

Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries related to this non-compliance.

 

573.6 © (7) - Basis of Non-Compliance Determination

 

On July 24, 2007, Ford was informed of the test results recorded for a 2007 Ford Mustang in a test

conducted pursuant to the requirements of S16.1(B) of FMVSS 208 for the NHTSA using an

unbelted, front passenger 5th percentile female anthropomorphic test device. An investigation was

undertaken, including inspection of the test vehicle, additional crash, system, and subsystem

testing and analysis to confirm the observed condition and to determine vehicles potentially

affected. After an extensive investigation, it was determined that the subject vehicles do not

comply with the requirements specified above.

 

 

573.6 © (8) - Service Program

 

Ford will notify dealers to stop demonstrating or delivering the affected vehicles until they are

updated with new software for the restraint control module. Ford will notify owners and instruct

them to take their vehicles to a Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealer for the software update. Ford will

also instruct them to have all occupants wear their safety belts and move the passenger seat

rearward away from the passenger airbag. An owner can take these steps to eliminate any real

world safety risk associated with this noncompliance.

 

There will be no charge to owners for this service. Mailing of owner notification letters will begin

February 28, 2008, and be completed by February 29, 2008. Dealers will be notified on

February 22, 2008.

 

In accordance with Part 573.13 (d)(1), Ford is excluding reimbursement for costs incurred by

owners for repair of this problem because Ford's original warranty program would provide for a

free repair for this concern for customers.

basically we're going to reflash the air bag module with updated software to comply with air bag deployment standards for smaller occupants. no parts will be replaced and there isn't any danger of non deployment in the event of an accident.all involved will recieve a letter.it will take less than 1/2 hour.
