Ford Mustang Mach-E Orders and Deliveries Delayed due to battery-related Recall

Hopefully, Ford Mustang Mach-E order holders hoping to take delivery soon may have to wait months before they get it

  • The cause is the high voltage battery’s main contactors may overheat.

  • Mach-Es from 2021 and 2022 may be affected.

The all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E has been on fire, no pun intended, since it was first introduced. Pre-orders, orders, and deliveries have gone as well as possible considering the mess the world is in. Unfortunately, a safety recall will put a mild freeze on the heat.

The issue stems from the high voltage battery’s main contactors that may overheat. One of two things can happen. One scenario involves the contactor welding itself shut. In this event, the powertrain malfunction light will come on during the next drive cycle (start-up), but it won’t start.

The other situation would see the contactor stay open. The same light will illuminate however the vehicle display “Stop Safely Now” in the instrument panel cluster as motive power will be lost.

Not all Ford Mustang Mach-Es are affected by the recall, according to the Macheforums. Recent builds completed before May 24th will not be delivered and may not be until the third quarter of 2022. To be clear, a problem has been identified however a fix is not yet available.

Owners will be notified by mail in the coming weeks.
