The contact owns a 2011 Ford Ranger. The contact stated that while driving at 35 mph, the brake pedal was depressed but the brake lights failed to illuminate. As a result, another vehicle crashed into the rear of the vehicle behind the contact, causing that vehicle to crash into the rear of the contact's vehicle and the air bags failed to deploy. The contact did not sustain any injuries. A police report was filed. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, who diagnosed that a switch on the brake pedal needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. However, the failure recurred immediately after the vehicle was repaired. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer but the contact was not provided with information on what part was replaced.

We have had a problem with our 2011 Ford Ranger since buying it on 10-24-15. Notice it after one day and took it back to dealership. They said it was fine and we went back another time to complain and they didn't care. The high beam headlights only works intermittently. My husband goes to work in the dark and we live in a rural area. This also affect us using truck at night. The truck was in motion.
