Explorer 4WD 6-cyl

We have had continual failures with our 2015 and 2016 Ford Explorer with the police package. The body control modules, wiring harnesses, restraint control modules that are either preventing new units being placed into service or fail once they have been placed into service. We currently have two of these units that we purchased off of our state contract in Washington state that are still at the dealer. We purchased and received these units in November of 2015. I have provided the VIN numbers to these two units that are effected along with the rest of the VIN numbers for all 5 units we have purchased within the last year and a half. Please let us know what else you would require to possibly assist us in our current situation. Besides the VIN number first attached to this form, here are the other four numbers. [xxx], [xxx], [xxx], [xxx]. thanks so very much for any assistance you may be able to provide. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

This is just a formal complaint to hopefully avoid accidents: Headlights on most new vehicles are dangerous. They do not project, if you face a garage, there is a distinct line where above this line there is no extra light and below the line is where the headlights shine. When going up and down hills you can see about 3 feet in front of you and no further. It is just as dangerous around curves. You can't read street signs and it would be hard to see deere standing on the side of the road. I had my headlights adjusted up by the dealership and everyone flashed their brights at me so I had to have them turned back down. Miy husband has a new Hyundai, everyone is flashing their brights at him and they are not on. My daughter-in-law who has a Chevy said the same thing and she drives with her brights on as much as she possibly can since the low beam is so horrible. Take a test drive in the country on hills and curves at night you'll see just how dangerous these light truly are

The exterior lights don't work that great it looks like some painted a black line in the windshield and we can't see above that line. Very dangerous. I am very disappointed in the lights. I had an edge before and we could see so much better.
