Ford Australia is recalling 110 examples of the Ranger ute and Everest SUV to fix an issue that may cause the remote controls for dealer-fitted ARB winches to not work properly.
“The internal circuit board of the remote control for ARB/WARN VR EVO winches can corrode if exposed to water,” said the company in its recall notice.
“Corrosion of the remote control’s circuit board may cause the winch’s cable to stop, wind up or release unexpectedly.”
