2017 HYUNDAI TUCSON
NHTSA Campaign ID: 16V842000
Component: TRAILER HITCHES
Manufacturer: Hyundai Motor America
Manufacture Dates: 05/19/2015 - 09/23/2016
Potential Units Affected: 6172
Defect Description:
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Tucson vehicles manufactured May 19, 2015, to November 14, 2016, and 2017 Santa Fe vehicles manufactured November 28, 2015, to November 14, 2016. The affected vehicles may be 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. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, " Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Consequence:
If the trailer brake lights stay illuminated while being used, other drivers may be confused, increasing the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
