The hybrid battery connections may not have been torqued according to the Ford specification, which can result in a poor electrical connection. This can lead to the loss of the hybrid drive (MHEV) function, increasing the risk of an accident.
Furthermore, localized overheating and possible melting of surrounding components can occur, increasing the risk of fire.
The Ford Puma MHEV models affected by this recall were manufactured between 12 November 2019 and 13 July 2020.
