Ford Motor Company is recalling an estimated 166,196 2018-2020 F-150 trucks equipped with high series LED headlamps with Autolamp (On/Off) functionality for a lighting issue.

Specifically, the Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) may remain activated instead of dimming to parking lamps when the Master Lighting Switch (MLS) is manually rotated from the "Autolamps" switch position to "Headlamps On."

Daytime running lights that fail to dim can potentially reduce the visibility of other drivers, increasing the likelihood of a collision.

To fix the problem, Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the body control module, at no cost to customers.

Owners can reach Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. The recall begins March 9. Ford's number for this recall is 20C03.
