After the auto start stop feature engages at a stop, the engine begins to re-start but then shuts down completely along with all electric functions in the vehicle. Cannot engage hazard lights or re-start the engine until the the battery is jump-started. Once the vehicle is jumped, it functions normally and does not display any battery or check engine indicator. This happened once at a stop sign in a residential area, and again at a red light on a multi-lane boulevard with speed limit 45 mph.

I received notification from fordpass that my 2019 Ranger was in deep sleep mode and that I needed to manually start it. I got into the vehicle and depressed the brake pedal as normal and pressed the start button. Many things happened simultaneously. Mostly lights flashing on the dash and eventually the headlights seemed to be sending morse code. But the engine barely responded at all. Later I hooked up a battery charger and when switched on the gauge bounced back and forth so fast it appeared to be an aircraft propeller. The vehicle was stationary in my driveway.

Tail light recall: Took vehicle to grapevine Ford in grapevine tx and they said they had done the work. Looking at the database it still shows no repaired. Unsure what to do about it.

I was driving my vehicle and trying to stop to avoid a collision. The system indicated collision detection was engaged; however, the brakes would not stop and there was a wreck.
