Ford and Dodge Recalling Trucks

DETROIT, Feb 13, 2006; Reuters reported that Ford Motor Co. is recalling 211,432 of its Ford F-150 and Lincoln Mark LT pickup trucks to fix a potentially faulty warning light for anti-lock brakes, U.S. safety regulators said.

The vehicles are from the 2006 model year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its Web site on Monday.

These vehicles were built with a software error in the brake system cluster, the NHTSA said.

Separately, the NHTSA said DaimlerChrysler AG was recalling 39,274 2006 model-year Dodge Dakota, Dodge Ram and Mitsubishi Raider pickup trucks.

The NHTSA said the rear brakes in some of these vehicles, equipped with four-wheel anti-lock brake systems, could lock up prematurely.

DaimlerChrysler had a small stake in Mitsubishi Motors Corp., which it sold in late 2005.
