DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. is recalling just over 13,000 Explorer, Taurus, and Lincoln MKS cars and SUVs because the child safety locks might not work on the rear doors.

The recall affects 2013 model cars sold mainly in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Ford says the safety locks can be turned off when the doors are opened or closed. That could allow a door to be opened with the inside door handle and possibly hurt a child. Ford says no injuries have been reported.
