Ford is notifying owners of more than 140,000 SUVs in the United States to park them outdoors because they can catch fire, even when the engine is off.
The company is recalling certain 2015 through 2019 model year Lincoln MKC SUVs. Ford noted that a short circuit in a 12-volt battery sensor may occur. He warned that it can overheat and cause a fire in the engine compartment while the vehicle is parked or moving.
Owners are urged to park away from structures until repairs are made. The sensors can be damaged when the battery or related electrical parts are serviced.
Ford said in documents released Friday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it has 19 reports of fires that may be related to the problem in the United States, China and Canada. The company said it is not aware of any injuries.
Dealers will add a fuse to the battery monitor sensor power circuit. Owners will be notified by mail beginning June 26.
