Ford Motor Company is recalling 839 model year 2021 Ranger and Bronco vehicles.

The automobile manufacturer said the cruise control radar module was misaligned during production.

Ford indicated that a misaligned radar module may prevent the vehicle from maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles when adaptive cruise control is active, agency report said

Besides, the Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system may react slowly, or not react at all, during a pre-collision assist braking event.

Any of these conditions can increase the risk of a crash, the company stated.

In regard to what to do in rectifying the error, Ford said the dealers would adjust the angle of the cruise control radar module free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed February 7, 2022.

Affected vehicle owners may contact Ford Customer Service (866) 436-7332, and Ford’s number for this recall is 21S52.
