Kia has announced that they are recalling certain models of the 2010 Forte vehicles. They stated that in the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp 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 stop lamp switch may also result in a intermittent operation of the push button start feature, affect the operation of the brake transmission shift interlock feature preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESU) malfunction light to illuminate.

Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition in in the ON position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of PARK without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Kia will notify owners. When parts are available, dealers will replace the stop lamp switch free of charge. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542.
