Ford Motor Co. issued five safety recalls covering about 200,000 vehicles in North America.

The recalls include its Crown Victoria sedan, F-150 pickup truck, Transit Connect van and Flex sport-utility vehicle. The actions also include a recall to fix a previous recall. The biggest recall is for 135,000 Flex and F-150 vehicles from the 2014 model year because a sensor in the passenger seat might not work correctly and could stop the airbag from deploying in a frontal crash.

Ford also will recall another 960 F-150 pickup trucks from the same model year to fix a brake pedal position switch. That could prevent the brake lights from turning on when the driver presses the brake pedal. It also could cause drivers to use more brake pressure to disengage the cruise control system, so Ford is advising customers not to use cruise control until the vehicle has been repaired.

Ford will bring back almost 39,000 Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car sedans from the 2005-2011 model years to fix an improper repair in previous recalls. The issue affects the steering shaft and could cause a driver to loose control of the vehicle. The Transit Connect from the 2014 model year is also being recalled.
