Ford has announced a recall of more than 1.2 million F-150 model pickups due to airbags that could deploy without warning, reports USA Today.
The recall was first announced in February, but Ford has decided to expand the recall from 150,000 2005 models to all 2004-2006 model trucks after pressure from safety regulators. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported about 60 injuries from unexpected air bag deployments in those vehicles.
Ford claims that the problem resulted from an electrical short due to wire chafing in the air bag and horn assembly of the steering wheel.
