Certain 2000 Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has published the recall of certain Ford
Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis of model year 2000 because a windshield wiper
control module may not be capable of carrying the current required during high load
conditions on the wipers (i.e., ice, snow or other debris), and could potentially result
in inoperative wipers with no advance warning.
23,000 vehicles manufactured between March
and April 2000 are affected by this recall.
Dealers will inspect the wiper control modules and
replace if necessary.
The manufacturer has reported that owner
notification was to begin during June 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy
within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
