I would say, "oh, not another one...", but I am glad and impressed that Ford is staying on top of these.

Below is a post from a longtime member of the Fusion Hybrid forum where he experienced multiple warning lights etc, and how his service advisor said that they've seen a lot of these and wouldn't be surprised if a recall occurred - and then just days later there it was.

Yep; this is me! I hit a bump and the dash lit up as if I truly broke somehting. Turns out I did; now I need a new restraints control module, before they can do the 14S04 retrofit. A short is just thie kind of thing that explains it!

This article contains some more details on the Restraint Control Module failure (that now appears to be affecting both Ford and Chrysler):

While on the Ford owner site looking at my VIN, below are the details that were shown for 14S21.  I've already had the 14E02 PCM reprogram done, and when they did that they added 14S21 to the Repair Order with status of 'Parts Not Yet Available' as expected.

 

FORD RECALL NUMBER: 14S21

 

NHTSA RECALL NUMBER: 14V597

 

RECALL DATE: SEP 25, 2014

 

RECALL TITLE: RESTRAINTS CONTROL MODULE REPLACEMENT

 

RECALL DESCRIPTION: RESTRAINTS CONTROL MODULE REPLACEMENT

 

RISK TO SAFETY: DEPENDING ON THE LOCATION OF THE SHORT CIRCUIT, THE DEPLOYABLE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS AND OTHER SYSTEMS THAT USE INERTIAL DATA FROM THE RCM MAY NOT FUNCTION AS INTENDED, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY. FORD IS NOT AWARE OF ANY ACCIDENT OR INJURY RELATED TO THIS CONDITION.

 

REMEDY PROGRAM: DEALERS WILL BE INSTRUCTED TO REPLACE THE RCM. THERE WILL BE NO CHARGE TO OWNERS FOR THIS SERVICE. AN INITIAL NOTIFICATION LETTER WILL BE MAILED TO ALL OWNERS THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10, 2014. DUE TO LIMITED PARTS AVAILABILITY, WE WILL INSTRUCT OWNERS TO CONTACT THEIR DEALER FOR SERVICE IF THEY HAVE AN ILLUMINATED AIRBAG WARNING INDICATOR. OWNERS WHO HAVE NOT ALREADY HAD THIS SERVICE PERFORMED WILL BE MAILED A FOLLOW-UP LETTER WHEN PARTS ARE AVAILABLE, ADVISING THEM TO SCHEDULE A SERVICE APPOINTMENT. IN ACCORDANCE WITH PART 573.13(D)(1), FORDS GENERAL REIMBURSEMENT PLAN FOR THE COST OF REMEDIES PAID FOR BY VEHICLE OWNERS PRIOR TO NOTIFICATION OF A SAFETY RECALL WAS PROVIDED TO THE AGENCY ON FEBRUARY 20, 2013. THE ENDING DATE FOR REIMBURSEMENT ELIGIBILITY FOR THE COST OF REMEDIES PAID FOR BY VEHICLE OWNERS PER FORD'S GENERAL REIMBURSEMENT PLAN IS NOVEMBER 30, 2014. FORD WILL UPLOAD A COPY OF THE NOTIFICATION LETTERS TO DEALERS ON NHTSA'S SAFERCAR.GOV WEBSITE WHEN AVAILABLE.

 

STATUS: 12 - RECALL INCOMPLETE. REMEDY NOT YET AVAILABLE.

 

MANUFACTURER NOTES: TO CHECK FOR NON-SAFETY-RELATED PROGRAMS APPLICABLE TO YOUR VEHICLE, SEE HTTP://WWW.FORD.COM/ OR CALL YOUR FORD DEALER.

...RISK TO SAFETY: DEPENDING ON THE LOCATION OF THE SHORT CIRCUIT, THE DEPLOYABLE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS AND OTHER SYSTEMS THAT USE INERTIAL DATA FROM THE RCM MAY NOT FUNCTION AS INTENDED...

I have an early SEL (10/2012 delivery) and lost the air bags, RSC and traction control after hitting a bump. A short circuit explains everything, including the wait... for a seat back as well.

I was able to get the recall completed today, 8/8.  The dealership technician forgot to reconnect ALL of the wires under the center console.  Fortunately, I have the Service Manual for the C-Max and figured out how to remove the console enough to get underneath and reconnect the seat heaters. 12 V outlet, and ambient light in the cup holder.

That's really nasty. You probably got it right your first attempt. will be sure to check my seat heaters if they should ever get the part for my car
thanks for the heads up!

Someone from Ford: please advise regarding the status of parts for this recall.  It's been a year and my dealer says they have heard nothing.   :sad:

Remember, some of us didn't have a recall, we had a broken RCM and a dash full of malfunction indicator lamps. We would reasonably have first crack at updated parts....
