The US automaker said the fault occurred as a result of direct, continuous friction between the wires of the power system and a bowl hanging from the gearbox.
Over a significant length of time, this friction can result in a short circuit of the power cables, damaging the electrical system of the vehicle. This failure would turn on the warning lights on the dashboard.
The free replacement under the recall programme will be applied for Ford Fiesta units produced from July 24, 2013, to August 30, 2014. Imported vehicles will also be eligible for the free replacement of parts under the programme.
According to the Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers' Association, the US firm sold 438 Fiesta units in the first seven months of this year in Viet Nam./.
