'The child lock may not engage when the operator uses normal turning force to activate the child lock, and the operator may incorrectly believe the child lock is engaged,' Ford told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

No crashes or injuries connected to the recall has been found, Ford said.

The recall covers 5,675 vehicles in the US as well as 859 in Canada.
