Ford Motor Co. is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 53 2015- and 2016-model year Ford Edge SUVs to update antilock braking system (ABS) modules.

Incorrect ABS module software may have been loaded into some vehicles when they were in for service, the automaker said in a released statement. This faulty software might disable electronic stability control (ESC), engine torque control, traction control (T/C), the warning lamp/indicator, the electronic parking brake (EPB) light, and the EPB drive-away release function. ABS and electronic brake distribution (EBD) remain fully functional and the EPB can be applied, Ford said. 

Ford noted it isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

The recall covers certain Ford Edge mid-size SUVs built at Oakville Assembly Plant from Feb. 9, 2015, to Aug. 12, 2016. They may have had software programmed during service between Aug. 6 and Sept. 28 of this year.

In addition to the 53 vehicles in the U.S., the recall affects three vehicles in Canada and two in Mexico.

Dealers will replace the ABS control module or reprogram the ABS module with updated software. There will be no charge for this service.
