Ford Motor Co. has recalled more than 13,100 Ford Explorer, Taurus and Lincoln MKS models because the child safety locks on the rear doors may not work properly. The recall affects 2013 models, and the malfunction could mean the child safety locks would turn off automatically, allowing the doors to be opened from the inside. No accidents or injuries have been reported due to the malfunction, according to Ford. The affected vehicles were built at the automaker’s Chicago Assembly Plant between Nov. 29, 2012 and Dec. 12, 2012. Most of the recalled vehicles are located in North America. Ford said dealers will test and replace the rear child safety locks for no cost if necessary.
