In certain cases, the transmission can be in a gear different from the position selected by the driver.
Ford has issued a recall for certain 2018 F-150 and Expedition vehicles outfitted with 10- and six-speed automatic transmissions.
A clip that locks the gear shift cable into the transmission may not be fully seated, potentially allowing the transmission to be in a gear different from the shifter position selected by the driver.
"This could allow the driver to move the shifter to park and remove the ignition key, while the transmission gear may not be in park, with no instrument panel warning message or warning chime when the driver's door is opened that indicates the vehicle is not secured in park," Ford warns.
The company says it is aware of one accident and injury related to the condition, which affects 350,000 vehicles.
