Ford Motor Co. recalled 26,715 Ranger pickup trucks built this year at the Twin Cities Assembly Plant because the tail lights might not turn on, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The problem involves a plastic slider on a multifunction switch that can warp, making it impossible for the switch to turn on the truck's turn signals, tail lights, hazard warning flashers or brake lights, which could increase the risk of a crash, the NHTSA said.

In a letter to the NHTSA, Ford said it was unaware of any accidents or injuries as of July 5 that were connected to the recalled part.
