Safety Recall 24S06 - 2018-2020 Exp-Nav - Inadvertent Pretensioner Deployment - Advance Notice...jpg


Supplemental information on involved component(s) from 2018-2020 Expedition Workshop Manual:

Airbag and Seatbelt Pretensioner Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) - Overview

The Restraints Control Module (RCM) continually receives and monitors inputs from the Occupant Classification System Module (OCSM) and various other hard-wired switches and sensors. If the RCM detects a sudden vehicle deceleration and/or lateral deceleration based on the information received from the various sensors and determines that deployment is necessary, it applies voltage and current to deploy the appropriate SRS components.

Seatbelt Anchor and Pretensioner

The seatbelt anchor pretensioner is a pyrotechnic device that removes excess of webbing slack from the seatbelts when deployed. One is included as part of each front row outboard seatbelt assembly and cannot be serviced separately.

Thanks for the heads-up, 99WhiteC5Coupe.

I have added references to this Advance Safety Recall Notice in those two other Forum discussions.

I have also edited Workshop Manual component descriptions and illustrations into the original post, above, to improve Forum member awareness.

Interesting that 2020 models were rolling out so early in the year while 2019's were still being built. Mine was built in August of 2019 so apparently not affected by the recall. I did check the VIN against Ford's recall site and nothing listed.
