Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2003-2005 Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis vehicles manufactured October 3, 2001, to August 2, 2005. The affected vehicles have a lighting control module (LCM) that may fail, resulting in a loss of headlights.
A loss of headlights can reduce driver visibility and increase the risk of a crash.

A second notice will be mailed when remedy parts are available in the first quarter of 2017. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S39.
