Ford Motor Co. is recalling some 2017 F-150 pickup trucks due to problems in the instrument cluster display that may arise in cold weather, the automaker announced on Thursday.

The truck recall includes more than 8,000 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant and Kansas City Assembly Plant between Oct. 4, 2016 and Nov. 23, 2016.

In cold conditions, the instrument cluster display may lose functionality immediately after the vehicle starts. This could prevent the instrument panel from displaying the selected transmission gear, increasing the risk of unintended vehicle movement.

If the instrument display loses functionality, it may also prevent warning chimes, messages and lights from operating properly.

Ford dealers will reprogram the instrument cluster display at no cost to the owner. The company is not aware of any fires, accidents or injuries that have been caused by the problem.

Nearly 6,800 of the vehicles are located in the U.S., while more than 1,000 are in Canada and 125 are in Mexico.
