Ford has issued a recall for 579 of its Ford Mondeo vehicles built between 2014 and 2015 fitted with adaptive LED headlights over concerns they may switch off inadvertently.
The Blue Oval reports that a software error within the Headlight Control Module (HCM) could cause the LED headlights to switch off.
If the fault occurs, the vehicle would need to be cycled off/on to reactivate the headlights.
Recalled Mondeo vehicles were built from 16 October 2014 through to 22 December 2015.
The company advises that if the headlights unexpectedly switch off while driving, drivers should turn on their hazard warning lights and pull over where possible so they can cycle their ignition off and on again.
Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by Ford Australia via mail, and are advised to contact their local dealership for rectification.
