2021+ 6th Generation Bronco TSB Information

When it comes to technical service bulletins (TSBs) it is always best to stay on top of the current information on your Bronco. TSBs are when an automaker, in this case, Ford, becomes aware of a common problem with the vehicle. When Ford finds a solution to the problem, Ford will issue a TSB, which is essentially a "how-to" fix the issue. TSBs should not be confused with Recalls, as recalls are mandatory repairs that will have to be performed by Ford. TSB will be voluntary solutions to issues that are not safety-related.

TSB 22-2210 - Neutral (4-Wheel Flat) Towing - Inconsistent Brake Feel Through The Supplemental Brake System

Issue: Customers who neutral tow (4-wheel flat tow) a 2021-2022 Bronco vehicle equipped with an electronic brake booster (EBB) may report an inconsistent brake assist when a supplemental braking system has been installed. This may result from supplemental brake system setup that does not account for the Bronco EBB system entering sleep mode (via the ABS module) after a pre-determined period of time following vehicle shut-down. This functionality is necessary to prevent battery drain. Enhanced software is under development to address this condition when the vehicle enters Neutral Tow mode. The new software is expected to be available in September 2022. Monitor OASIS for updates. Until the software becomes available, customers who meet this criteria may perform the following steps to address this condition when neutral towing their vehicle. For more the solution and the complete information about the TSB, click the button below!
