2011 HYUNDAI ACCENT
NHTSA Campaign ID: 15V566000
Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING:BRAKE LIGHTS:SWITCH
Manufacturer: Hyundai Motor America
Manufacture Dates: 03/01/2009 - 02/11/2011
Potential Units Affected: 99500
Defect Description:
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Hyundai Accent vehicles manufactured March 1, 2009, to February 11, 2011. In the affected vehicles, the brake light switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning brake light switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning brake light switch may also prevent the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position.
Consequence:
Failure to illuminate the brake lights during braking or the inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake switch, free of charge. The recall began on October 21, 2015. Owners may contact Hyundai's customer service at 1-855-671-3059 or by visiting www.HyundaiUSA.com/Campaign131. Hyundai's number for this recall is 131. This recall is an expansion of 13V-113.
