Ford India has recalled 3,072 units of the diesel Fiesta sedan for the glow plug control module issue. Vehicles manufactured between October 2010 and November 2011 are part of this recall.
This recall is a part of Ford’s global recall of 2.21 lakh Fiestas. The glow plug module is the controlling unit of the glow plug control, which is a heating device used to aid the start of diesel engines. The company said it is writing to the affected car owners and asking them to contact their local Ford service center. It will be installing a newly designed waterproof glow plug control module free of charge.
"We have initiated a field service action to correct a product concern on 3,072 Ford Fiesta TDCi vehicles. This is a proactive, voluntary recall action to ensure customers' safety and satisfaction and no accidents or injuries related to this concern have been reported," said Ford India.
This isn’t the first time Ford India has recalled one of their cars for the issue with the glow plug control module. Soon after the launch of the EcoSport, the company recalled the vehicle to re-position the module, which was situated under the front bumper.
