Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Purcased with 23000 miles on vehicle in aug 2011 one week later service brake light was on took to ford they found cracked master cylinder and replaced.  A week later same light was on found ground fault wiring service bulletin and repaired.  Since that time the service break light has continued to come on and has been back for service 5 more times last week they replaced the master cylinder for the 2nd time thinking that the sensor was bad in the master cylinder.  After driving the vehicle for 2 miles after picking up the vehicle the service brake system light is back on again and will be taking it back to the shop on monday has anyone else had issue with the break light?

The dealership has cleared the code worked on this vehicle 5 times now and the same light keeps comming on will be taking back this am for 6th visit. Each time they find something else they think is causing the issue and never is resolved.
