      Braun Corporation "Braun" is recalling certain model year 2016 BraunAbility MXV wheelchair accessible conversion vehicles built on Ford Explorer chassis. If the driver or front passenger seat is moved to its most rearward position, the seat position sensor may be dislodged, preventing the air bag control unit from accurately calculating the frontal air bag deployment force needed in the event of a crash.
      In the event of a crash, if the frontal air bag does not deploy with the proper force, the occupants have an increased risk of injury.
      Braun will notify owners, and dealers will modify the seat base pedestals to provide the necessary clearance for the seat position sensor, free of charge. The recall began on November 20, 2017. Owners may contact Braun customer service at 1-800-488-0359.
