Exterior Lighting — Brake Lights — Switch

Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. The brake lamps in these vehicles are controlled by a switch activated by the movement of the brake pedal. This switch could fail internally, causing it to remain either in the "brake lamps off" position or in the "brake lamps on" position.
Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the existing brake lamp switch with an improved switch.
