Ford has warned owners of over 140,000 SUVs to park outside amid fears the electric batteries could short circuit and catch fire, even when the engine is off.

The Lincoln MKC SUV is said to have a short-circuit which causes the sensor to overheat, which can cause a fire in the engine block.

So far, Ford is aware of 19 of the vehicles going up in flames worldwide that may be connected to the sensor problems.

Among the nineteen cases reported, eleven occurred in the United States, seven in China, and one in Canada. A social media user shared pictures displaying a severely burned maroon MKC, which had been previously highlighted as a warning. The front of the vehicle has been completely stripped away by the fire, revealing scattered internal components scattered on the ground beneath it.

Teresa Lee Coffman, another social media user, posted pictures of her red Lincoln that had been completely burned out. According to Coffman, the vehicle caught fire and was engulfed in flames while she was driving it in December 2021. She mentioned that the incident occurred despite her husband gifting her the car for Valentine’s Day earlier that year.
