Make(s):
KIA
Model(s):
FORTE, FORTE KOUP
Year(s):
2012, 2013, 2014
Manufacturer:
Kia Motors America
NHTSA ID:
17V773000
Recall Date:
December 1st, 2017
Units Affected:
134,366

Affected Component: Service brakes, hydraulic:pedals and linkages.

Summary: Kia motors america (kia) is recalling certain 2012-2014 forte and forte koup vehicles. The brake pedal stopper pad can deteriorate allowing the brake light switch plunger to remain extended when the brake pedal is released. This will allow the brake lights to remain illuminated continuously. It can also allow the shift lever to be moved without depressing the brake pedal, or activate the engine management brake pedal override feature. .

Conequence: If the brake light switch plunger does not retract as it should when the brake pedal is not being pressed, the brake lights may stay illuminated preventing accurate communication to following vehicles that the vehicle is slowing or stopping. Additionally, if the brake switch plunger is not retracted, then the transmission can be shifted out of park without depressing the brake pedal. Either condition increases the risk of a crash. .

Remedy: Kia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake pedal stopper pad, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin january 30, 2018. Owners may contact kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is sc158. .

Notes: Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153).
