Ford C-Max: Salt can make cables burn
Due to the high use of salt in winter operation, there is an increased risk of corrosion on the radiator fan module. In extreme cases, the salt can penetrate into the electronics and lead to the cooling fan module overheating. In rare cases, the module and surrounding cables and components can ignite due to overheating. So far, however, no such cases have become known.
Ford will now write to all owners of affected vehicles via the KBA and ask them to take their car to the workshops for inspection. Ford allows around 20 minutes to just check the module. If an additional cable harness and an additional cover have to be installed, the workshop visit can take up to an hour. This campaign is free of charge for vehicle owners.
Here you will find an overview of all recall and service campaigns.
