WASHINGTON (CBS4) — Ford Motor Co. is recalling about 35,000 pickup trucks and crossover vehicles in the U.S. and Canada because of possible fuel leaks and electrical shorts that could lead to fires.

Ford says the recall includes about 25,000 2010 Ranger pickups and involves fixing potential problems with the fuel line that could lead to a fuel leak and a fire.

No fires or injuries have been reported.

Ford also is recalling more than 9,000 other vehicles to fix a software problem that could lead to an electrical short and overheating, potentially causing a fire.

The recall involves 2011 model years of the Ford Edge, F150, F250, F350, F450, F550 and Lincoln MKX. Ford says it does not know of any incidents related to the recalled vehicles.
