Component: ENGINE
Manufacturer: Kia Motors America

2017 KIA SPORTAGE
NHTSA Campaign ID: 16V862000
Component: TRAILER HITCHES
Manufacturer: Kia Motors America
Manufacture Dates: 12/10/2015 - 08/26/2016

Defect Description:
Kia Motors America (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Sorento vehicles manufactured October 27, 2014, to August 25, 2016, and 2017 Sportage vehicles manufactured December 10, 2015, to August 26, 2016. The affected vehicles are equipped with an accessory trailer hitch wiring harness that, due to a malfunction of the tow hitch module, may result in the trailer brake lights being constantly illuminated.
