LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Ford is recalling more than 20,000 pickup trucks and SUVs because of a defective switch that can cause brake lights to fail.

The recall affects Ranger trucks from 2004 through 2011, Excursion SUVs from 2002 through 2005, and F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 trucks from 2002 through 2007.

Ford is also recalling more than 6,000 of the switches that were sent to dealers as replacement parts.

The company says it will notify owners and dealers about the problem and replace the switches for free.

    Hi Boyd,are you talking about your stand alone dvd player? Its possible your player cant read the media you are using..i.e dvd-r..dvd+r..etc…I think the newer players read basically all formats, but the older ones may not.. As for shrink..it is pretty good for cracking CSS,,I havent had a problem with it yet..if you do have a problem then use decrypter first.good luck,Sher

    Why didn’t Ford recall the 2010 Focus? Mine has been stalling at intersections when I’m in the middle of making a left turn. I been to the Ford dealer many times and they can’t find the problem. They changed a micro-processor, cleaned the fuel lines and injector but it still stalls. Now when I need to make a left turn I just go around the block after three right turns. I’ll never buy a Ford again.

    Fords have improved very much over the years,I would purchase one,of all the fords I owned,mostly crown vic’s,never had any major issues with them.

    @Junk-What you have is either a lemon,or,whoever worked on your car didnt have the patience to check other possible causes.I would reccomend taking it to a different ford dealer.
