Ford Motor Co. is recalling 2,100 2018 Ford Mustangs so dealers can update the instrument cluster software to address a potential vehicle rollaway risk.

If the driver turns off the car with the automatic transmission in a position other than park, the instrument cluster might not illuminate the PRNDL display. Additionally, the key-in-the-ignition warning chime might not sound when the driver’s door is opened. These conditions increase the likelihood of a vehicle rollaway, Ford said.

The recall affects Mustangs equipped with an automatic transmission premium instrument cluster. The cars were built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant from March 14 to Nov. 26.

Ford noted that it isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries linked to the issue. Ford dealers will perform the software update at no cost to the customer.

In addition to those cars recalled in the U.S., 67 Mustangs will be recalled in Canada for the same problem.
