In this paper, we study a repairable consecutive-2-out-of-n: F system with Markov dependence. Suppose that the failure rate of a component depends on the state of the preceding component. The components are classified as key components and ordinary components, and a key component will have higher priority for repair. For both linear and circular systems, the generalized transition density matrices are then determined. Some reliability indices are also studied.
