There is a risk of fire. Ford recalled 50000 charging cables for electric vehicles
on August 23, Beijing time, Ford Motor Company has announced the recall of charging cables for 50000 electric vehicles sold from 2011 to 2015. The car manufacturer said there was a risk of fire caused by these cables
this actually affects all Ford plug-in vehicles, including Ford Focus electric vehicle from 2012 to 2015 model year, Ford Fusion energi and Ford C-MAX energi
the company listed the affected vehicles:
the model year Ford Focus electric vehicle produced at the Michigan assembly plant from September 15, 2011 to March 14, 2015
the model year Ford Fusion energi vehicles produced at the emercio assembly plant in Mexico from September 4, 2012 to March 5, 2015
Ford C-MAX energi vehicles produced in Michigan assembly plant during April 13, 2012 to March 2015 can be divided into manual grinding and mechanical grinding
Ford told car owners not to use the factory equipped 120 volt cable. They need to contact the local dealer to obtain a new cable with thermistor. The cable "can identify the overheating at the plug/socket interface and will stop charging until the temperature drops to an appropriate level"
Ford's draft is as follows:
"Ford is recalling about 50000 120 volt convenient charging cables for Ford Focus electric vehicle, Ford Fusion energi model and Ford C-MAX energi model."
if the 120 volt convenient charging line originally provided to the affected vehicle is used, the AC power socket is not on the dedicated circuit, or it has been damaged, worn or corroded, or it will cause the temperature of the wall socket to rise and may cause a fire
Ford has learned about some fire accidents
about 50524 vehicles in North America are equipped with charging lines related to this, including 49197 vehicles in the United States and its federal region and 1327 vehicles in Canada. The Ford reference number of this recall is 18s24
the owner will receive an email notification and be told to meet the requirements of sufficient wall sockets, and under no circumstances should the extension cable be used to charge the vehicle. "Made in China 2025" and "1025 development plan of new material industry" clearly put forward that new materials are important strategic emerging industries. They will be instructed to take their vehicles to Ford dealers in order to replace the 120 volt portable charging line equipped in the factory with the latest version of equipment oil source maintenance: 120 volt convenient line with thermistor. Why are thermosensitive plastic bags rarely recycled? " The resistor can identify the overheating condition at the plug/socket interface and will stop charging until the temperature drops to an appropriate level
