They told me the RM on the end of the number in the TSB stands for re-manufactured. Not necessarily starting with prior failed parts, as unused replacement parts were also “re-manufactured” with better contactors. No way to know exactly what got put into my car, though I suspect most of the failed parts were just discarded by the dealers.

I am hoping that the recall will include an updated part. I mean, how bad is it going to be if the new Rally model with more HP and torque than the GT-PE has a slew of failures, especially if it has less of a power limiter? 🤷‍♂️🐩

That said, I am not sure they have sourced or designed a new part at this time, so my fear is that the part being installed in 2023 models and in failed 2021 and 2022 models will be what we get. 🤔🐩

Ford Mustang Mach-E High Voltage Battery Junction Box (HVBJB) Replacement Recall for  recall HVBJB in 30,013 Mach-E 8A2FE90E-D551-419D-8ED6-420D1EC18BD5
My car got the same P/N put into it. I am almost certain that dealers are returning the cores to Ford so that they can be refurbished and not throwing them out. When Ford originally put the part on hold and purged the system in 2022, they took all existing stock out of circulation and had them re-worked. 😊🐩

Do you think most dealerships are familiar with the repair now? I wonder if it would be worthwhile to wait until they have more experience.

So I happened to stop in at two Ford dealers today for another project, not in my home state, and both dealers had the contactor recall pulled up for my car as soon as I gave them the VIN.

I am writing this here to let us affected folks know that we don't necessarily have to await a physical letter... it appears that every Ford dealer out there will already know if your car is affected.

Of course, they are all "awaiting parts" etc.

You can actually get the frunk button anytime, you just might have to pay the dealer to do it like I did for my First Edition. All it needs is the updated BCM and GFM modules which allows them to check the box enabling "electronic front trunk release button". I took my FE to the dealer and specifically instructed them to do this and the tech was able to do it just fine...they also have a tech hotline to corporate if they're not sure how. My dealer charged me $199 cuz it's not a mandatory update, but it was totally worth it to me cuz as soon as I got frunk functionality I got a Lightning fob and programmed it to the car so now I can open the frunk anytime from the fob which I use all the time.
It's a quick 10 min job. My Dealer did it free of charge!!

There is no coverage from Ford or insurance companies for alternative transportation when a car has a recall (at least not my policy) so you might be out a car for a while.....

You can check it yourself on ford.com.

Dealer has to return the part to Ford in order to be paid. I know this as my son works at the local Ford dealer and they could not find an HVBJB to send back after one repair so Ford was not going to reimburse them. The found it eventually and sent it back.

So if my dealer ordered my new HVBJB on Monday, I can assume it’s a “newer” part that will be less prone to failure?
