Ford Motor Co. is recalling 9,017 2013 model-year Ford Escape and 2013-2014 Focus vehicles to fix a potential engine-stalling problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall covers Escape SUVs manufactured from Jan. 11, 2012, to April 1, 2013, along with Focus ST cars manufactured from May 3, 2012, to Oct. 14, 2013.

In these vehicles, insufficient compression in the engine wiring harness splices to the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor may provide incorrect signals to the powertrain control module (PCM), NHTSA said. These faulty signals could cause the vehicle to hesitate or the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford dealers will replace the current crimped splices with new splices, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Jan. 4. Vehicle owners can reach Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 14S17-S1.
