Ford is updating software on its 2013 escape SUV's and fusion cars. The automakers is looking to fix a coolant problem.

Only vehicles with 1.6-liter turbocharged engines are affected. Last month, Ford recalled more than 89,000 of the vehicles after getting complaints about over-heating and fires.

The problem has caused nine fires, but the software change will fix the problem.
