DETROIT — Ford is recalling more than 430,000 vehicles in the US over a software glitch that could cause a vehicle’s engine to keep running.

Company officials said the engine would keep running even if the ignition is turned off, the key is removed or even if the car’s “engine stop” button is pressed.

Ford said it does not know of any injuries caused by the glitch.

The recall affects some 2015 Focus, C-MAX and Escape models.

Ford said customers can get the impacted software replaced at their local dealer for free.
