Issue: On certain vehicles, the brake light switch may not be in the correct position.

This would result in the brake lamps staying on at all times.

This could also allow the transmission to be shifted out of the park (P) position without applying the brakes.

Safety Risk: Shifting out of park without applying the brakes could cause unintended vehicle movement.

If the brake lights stay on, a following driver may not recognize when a vehicle ahead is braking.

Either of these outcomes could increase the risk of a crash.

Corrective Actions: The company will notify owners by mail.

Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to inspect the brake pedal assembly.

The assembly will be replaced as required.
