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.
