DETROIT (WWJ/AP) - Ford is recalling more than 217,000 pickup trucks mainly in North America to fix a problem with the daytime running lights.

The recall covers certain F-150 trucks with LED headlights from the 2018 through 2020 model years.

The automaker says the running lights will stay on if the driver moves the headlight switch from auto to the low beam position instead of dimming to parking light intensity as required by US safety standards.

The problem could reduce visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford says it doesn't know of any reports of accident or injury related to the issue.

Dealers will update software to fix the problem.
