Ford Motor just issued another recall order after receiving two reports of minor mishaps. The Dearborn, Michigan headquartered automobile manufacturer is recalling more than 330,000 Mustang from select 2015 to 2017 model years.

As per Fox Business, the reason for the latest Ford Motor recall is the rearview camera that may show blank or distorted images. The automaker stated that this could be due to loose or damaged wiring.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) also posted an official notice for the recall and defect on some Ford Motor Mustangs. The agency emphasized the risk of a crash if the issue is not fixed.

The NHTSA explained the flaw resulted from "a loss of electrical conductivity caused by a damaged decklid harness and/or an insufficiently soldered header connector internal to the camera can lead to a loss of electrical conductivity."

Ford Motor also issued a warning and part of it reads, "A rearview camera that intermittently displays a blank or distorted image can reduce the driver's view of what is behind the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash."

The company shared it is aware of two minor crashes related to the rearview camera. But fortunately, there is no report of any injury due to the flaw.

Owners of the affected Mustang models will be notified by Ford Motor through the mail. They will receive the notice by Mar. 7, with details on the safety risk. It was said that a second letter will be sent as well to inform owners about the remedy.

All the repair and parts replacement will be free of charge as long as the owners will bring their Mustangs to authorized dealers and Ford Motor centers. USA Today reported that the recalled Ford Motor Mustangs went into production on Feb. 22, 2014, and the company started using the affected cameras on May 12, 2014, which were later pulled on Feb. 28, 2015.

Car owners may also get in touch with the company's customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Based on the notice, Ford Motor's number for this recall is 22S06 and NHTSA's ID is 22V082000.
